How to draw a soldier step by step
Start the process from work in the right halfsheet. It is necessary to divide it by means of the central vertical axis into two halves. It should be noted that this axis should not touch both the top and bottom edges of the sheet. To do this, leave about one and a half centimeters of free space. This axis will be conditionally the backbone of a person.
Now you should divide it into several parts. So, the segment from above should be equal to the height of the head. Then you need to count how many times this segment can fit on the axis from the neck to the waist, then from the waist to the knees and from the knees to the feet. The obtained proportions will need to be reflected in the figure. The future painted soldier will not stand on the hood, but will take emphasis, ready for shooting. Therefore, the central axis should be bent in several places: it is necessary to tilt slightly forward the site at the level of the neck, and a little to the right of the center of the site at the shoulder level.
Now it will be necessary to determine the lines of the legs. To do this, you should divide the length of the axis from the shoulders to the lowest edge in half. Then from the obtained point it is necessary to draw two segments. They will act as the axis of the legs. Further it is required to divert them from the central line by a distance that will be equal to half the height of the head. It remains to draw lines of hands. In the beginning, you should designate the horizontal axis of the shoulders and draw two lines of the same length on each side of the ends of the resulting segment. On the place of their junction there will be an elbow.
