Anatomy of a Stick Figure

Stick figures are wonderful little things for telling stories and showing examples.

They can be a little tricky, though. Often I see people struggle with getting the parts to end up in the right places - if they want their figure sitting on a chair, for example, where do you put the head? If they are doing something with their hands, how do you make sure their arms are the right length?

Well, what you need is to think about your own anatomy and go from there. Here's a quick primer on the basics of drawing really great stick figures - so your next drawing, or cartoon, or doodle can be that much more fabulous!

Enjoy!
