I admit this is very simplified but it is a good beginner project and helps with drawing the basic human form. If a person takes their time and works with it this can be a very nice picture.
There is more than one way to approach drawing the human figure. This technique starts with a stick figure that is articulated with joints for the elbows, wrist knees, hips, ankles etc. In our pose she is on one toe, the other leg is extended back and the arms are raised up. Use a sharp pencil and draw lightly at first so you can erase later.
Since the dancer has a slender figure draw lines around the stick figure to give it thickness. Add curves for the muscles and joints.
Keep the hands, feet, and face simple. Do not try to draw every finger and all the face. It is art and can express perfection without drawing perfectly.
The hands start like the stick figure body. Think of drawing the bones first, draw the finger bones, the hand bone and the thumb bone, then draw around them to make them thick. Use the same technique for the foot she is standing on, but the foot out back is only an oval.
Keep the face simple, her head is tilted back. Use guidelines to make a cross in the center of the head, that is where the ear will be, The eye will be at the bottom of the cross arm. Keep the chin small. Make the nose small and pointed up a little. Use a sloping line for the eye .
Do the clothing last. The skirt is airy and has waves. The top is skin tight.
