Need good tutorials and help on drawing human anatomy, angles, positions and figures.?
I love to draw. I’ve been drawing since I was little, and I want to get better and be a professional. My only problem is, I’m VERY bad at positions, human anatomy, and figures. I can’t draw a person standing at an angle without it looking distorted or completely out of proportion. I also can’t draw hands and feet. Sometimes, I will take hours just trying to draw a hand correctly. Can someone help me out and give me tutorials and tips?

For getting proportions right, if you can do maths I suggest using Phi. It’s a mathematical value (1.618) that is seen all the time in nature. You can use it as a ratio (1 : 1.618) to help with proportions all over the body, e.g height, legs, arms, face. Google it to see how to apply it when drawing humans. Leonardo Da Vinci used it ALL THE TIME, most famously in the Vitruvian Man –> http://www.google.co.uk/imgres?imgurl=http://thealchemicalegg.com/X.GIF&imgrefurl=http://thealchemicalegg.com/VitruviusN.html&h=320&w=318&sz=73&tbnid=fbR6nTEYcJJHoM:&tbnh=90&tbnw=89&zoom=1&usg=__-lwvv_zkF4kEnjLH976BbaQNXy8=&docid=kiE51MKEqijCWM&hl=en&sa=X&ei=rUcVUJK0Oue20QXLoYDYAw&ved=0CHEQ9QEwAg&dur=2
If you’re having trouble drawing humans in various positions, I suggest getting an artist’s drawing mannequin, an adjustable wooden doll in the shape of a human which artists use to draw humans.
Have fun and good luck!
