How To Draw A Ballerina On One Leg.

The free worksheet at the bottom of this post and the project notes below may be printed by highlighting them and sending to your printer or saving to your device to be printed later. If the images are a little dark increase the contrast on your printer.

This is a classic expression of the human figure.There are more than one way to draw the human figure, this is an easy approach that is ideal for the young artist. If the drawing does not look perfect do not get discouraged. Drawing takes practice and if you draw something every day soon you will be making beautiful pictures. I have a lot of projects so come back often and try some more.

Good Luck.

Start by drawing a "balancing line up and down to keep the figure centered and balanced. There should be equal amounts of the figure on both sides of this line.

Start with a stick figure that includes the joints like the elbows and knees.  Take time to get the pose right.

Using ovals for the muscle groups fill out the arms and legs. Give the body shape.

Keep the hands, feet and face simple. The hands are side view so all the fingers do not show. The eyes are halfway down from the top of the head to the chin, Keep the clothing simple.

Add shadow to give the form depth and roundness.
