Every masterpiece begins with a stick figure drawing.
Real artists, yes even the really great ones, work out their art with thumbnail drawings and stick figure sketches – often on the backs of envelopes or paper napkins in restaurants.
To draw a stick figure is easy. To draw an action stick figure needs a little more work.
With a bit of practice you’ll learn how the body moves so you’ll be able to draw anything you like from any angle.
Luckily we can use photographs to help us work things out. In this video, Shoo goes through the process and shows you how to draw your own action stick figures. Why not draw along?
