Try different projects and draw a lot of different stuff, I have a lot of worksheets to choose from so do something different every day and soon you will find what your talent is.

How to Draw The Crossed Arms Worksheet.
The man with arms crossed over his chest can be a challenge for a young artist. But the pose can be a dramatic statement and a powerful part of a composition.

Start with an articulated stick figure, where he has elbows and knees, to get the proportions and pose correct.

The arms are like a wide and low "x." Draw the one out front first, the hand will be left out since it is behind the other arm. The second arm is only the upper arm since it is behind. The hand is like a lopsided square the thumb goes up.

After the height and basic pose is satisfactory add the body to the figure by drawing circles and ovals for the muscles.

After you have the body outlined then design the clothing and the face.

After you are satisfied with the design then go over it with a felt tipped marker or color pencils.
