How to draw a running woman
1) Draw the upper border for the figure.
2) From the upper border, moving downward, tentatively determine the position of the head and draw an oval to represent its conditional size.
3) Draw a vertical line through the middle of the head. This will be the central vertical line of the figure.
4) From the upper border of the figure, draw seven identical segments equal to the height of the head and one segment equal to one-third the height of the head. The last segment will act as the lower boundary of the figure. Through the boundaries of the segments, draw horizontal lines.
5) From the central vertical line of the figure, measure and draw:
• Three segments equal to the width of the head – to the left of the line.
• One segment equal to three-quarters the width of the head – to the left of the line.
• Two segments equal to the width of the head – to the right of the line.
• One segment equal to half the width of the head – to the right of the line.
Through the boundary of each segment, draw vertical lines. The extreme left and right segments will act as the vertical boundaries of the figure.
Mark off the width and height of the running woman. Define her main proportions and head.
Draw guidelines for her head and facial features. Sketch her torso, legs and arms.
Show the arms, hands and torso of the running woman. Outline the shapes of her hair, cap and jogging shoes.
Draw ovals for a shoulder, hips, ankles and calves. Add semicircles for the second shoulder and chest.
Work on the figure, adding more details. Add fingers.
Define more details.
Contour the running woman, paying special attention to parts and components. Outline grass. Erase all the guidelines.
