I can show you how to draw a skeleton. We will draw the spine, the ribcage, the pelvis, the arms and legs. We will draw the skeleton together and I’ll explain how to draw it.
- Draw a line that is vertical. Divide it into five parts. These are the lumbar vertebrae.
- Draw 4 more sections, making them smaller as you finish.
- Explain how the discs are in between the bones.
- The rib cage will start three vertebrae from the bottom. Here, draw two squares, with a side five vertebrae long.
- Now, draw a line from one shoulder to another over the whole back. This will be the basic outline of the spine.
- Use scissors to cut the sides of the ribcage to round its shape.
- Now draw the back part of the ribs. There are 11 ribs. One is short and the rest are long. There are also some extra ribs, called “pseudo-ribs.”
- Draw a line from the top of the head to the bottom of the neck.
- Measure the distance from your ribcage to your pelvis. It should be about two bones long.
Grab your white and off-white crayons, because you will use them for a more creative effect.
