More detailed study

Further more detailed drawing of the figure can be done in different ways, and they can vary from case to case. Each drawing is a new experience, so choose the approach that seems right to you in this situation. However, if you are new to drawing, you can start in the same way as you did quick sketches: look out for large shapes and place them on one line, and then add details.

The drawings of beginners are often flat and illusory, so do everything possible to emphasize the shape of the figure - its bulk mass, strength and hardness. It is possible to emphasize the form, paying special attention to light and shadow.

Another very an interesting method is to start from any partthat interests you. Draw it in detail, and then move around the figure and move on to another interesting area. You may find that the picture looks quite complete when there are some more details that you haven't even started working on. This approach can easily knock some parts out of proportion with others, but this is not a big problem in most cases, and sometimes can add charm the finished work in a completely unexpected way, in addition, this drawing is not so expensive, so you can refuse it and start again - you will always learn something newthat at this stage is main goal drawing. The most expressive drawings are born when you give freedom to your imagination.
