How to Draw a Boy Video Tutorial

When students learn how to draw a boy, they will learn an important lesson about proportion. The one clue that tells the viewer that any person is young, is that the head is just a little bit larger than say an adult’s head would be on that body. There are even rules about this relationship of the head to the body, but for young artists, just remembering the draw it a little bit larger than usual will do the trick.

This tutorial shows a boy posing with his hands in his pockets so he looks more relaxed. It also, of course eliminates the need to add fingers, which can be tricky when you’re even just trying to figure out arms and legs.

Working with Drawing Guides

The best way to get students off to a good start to any drawing project is to show them how to use guides as a reference point. You may have noticed that all of the tutorials on this site have center guides that are showing as both a vertical line and a horizontal line. If students make lines like those on their own paper, before drawing, they will have some extra help in seeing where to begin their drawing.

Drawing skills are all about getting the size and placement of lines on paper, so having some visual reference point to get started, will always help anyone learn how to be a little more accurate. So does that mean students need to use their pencil to draw big fat lines down the center of their paper before they start? No, simply fold the paper in half both ways, make a crease, and unfold. The beauty is that by the time the drawing is done and colored in, the creases will disappear.
