Shapely People Fun & Easy Tutorial


A lot of people are intimidated at the thought of drawing people (including me).

But in my Fun & Easy world, there is nothing that can’t be drawn by using the basic shapes – circles, squares, triangles, and their geometrical variations.  And remember, stick people are for real in fun & easy landscapes!

You know the steps already – the head, the chest, the waist, the arms, the legs, the hands and feet (maybe).  Are people still familiar with the spiritual – Dem Dry Bones?  I had that song going through my head when I was working on this.

I’ve come up with step-outs for drawing a few funky people.  I’m using the triangle for the most part, but you should try squares and circles too. You can tell the possibilities are endless!
