Are you a total beginner wanting to learn to draw the human body? Then check out some of the best apps that will teach you to draw faces and figures in no time!
If drawing is something you enjoy as a hobby, it is very likely that you have, at one point or another, realized that depicting the human figure can be a challenge. Perhaps you tried to draw a nude, do a sketch of human body parts or follow a human figure drawing tutorial - and realized you are not yet up to the task. By now you definitely know the answer to the age-old question - why should artists learn anatomy? Because it helps you draw better, of course! Luckily, today, you can study the human anatomy using apps on your smartphone or tablet.
Practicing figure drawing will teach you that our faces and bodies differ in an endless number of ways. Learning more about the human anatomy will help you understand this and apply it to your drawing. If looking at people ignites your creative spark, you will want to do them justice and draw them as they are. Having an anatomy drawing reference or a proportions worksheet close by at all times can be of tremendous help. Imagine having all the great anatomy drawing books at your fingertips. That's what your smartphone can do. This will help you understand how to draw a female body or that of a man or a child.
Once you understand the basics of how to draw bodies in a more or less realistic manner, you will be able to apply this skill to just about any style. The traditional comic book look or the currently globally popular anime and manga will be well within reach. The ways of drawing the human face may differ between them but everything else rests on the same principles set in anatomy books and apps. If you stick to good anatomy drawing practice exercises, you are bound to succeed. You may even end up landing your dream job as an illustrator or manga artist. You never know!
