DRAWING TIPS: Why is the STICKMAN important in drawings

When I started training in animation, the first things our instructors taught us is, (1) construction through basic shapes, and (2) doing poses in stickman form. I was mindblown when I found out about it and since then, it has been my foundations in drawing.

In these following image, I’ll explain why stickman is important in drawings and how to utilize it to create poses.

Throughout the years, I was able to draw the stickman in my imagination so I don’t draw them much physically but if you’re starting out, I highly recommend that you draw it on the canvas as well so you’ll have a more visual guide.
