Har+new from the blog Futuristically Yours asked how to start drawing a person laying in leaves and how to show a person walking and then turning around. There are a few considerations to consider in each of these scenarios such as drawing style and camera angle, but I’ll give you what I’d start with myself.
My recommendation on where to start with either of these scenarios is to have someone model for you and try sketching them out. Nothing beats life drawing to get you started. Short of that, (as it may be challenging to find someone help you), I’d start with laying out your characters loosely. I did my version in today’s daily doodle.
I start my stick figures more as box and sticks. I sketch it out first to figure out where things go. So, for a person laying in leaves, I’d start with a bird’s eye view of someone laying down and then draw in leaves.
As for someone walking and then turning, this might be pacing dependent. Do you want it in one panel or two? In two panels, you can show a person walking in the first and then turning in the second. If you only have one panel, show them walking, but turn the head to show the start of the character turning to address whatever subject is the cause of the turn. I kind of showed you both sketch options combined at the bottom.
Hope that helps you Har+new! If anyone else has tips, feel free to drop it on us because I like learning new ideas as well!
