How to: AnatomyHuman anatomy is, for sure, one of the hardest things to draw. But at the same time it's one of the most interesting things to draw, because... hey... we love making characters, and it's nice if they at least look a bit like a human being. I'm still far from perfect at drawing the human body, yet I've accumulated some very useful tips, tricks and websites.Good exercisesDrawing from lifeDrawing from life is awesome!Look for life drawing classes in your environment, or if they're not available; ask your friends to pose for you.

STEP 1First of all, if you want to learn faster you should draw using traditi
