How to draw Relax standing pose in fashion drawing Step 1
  • Draw the same center line with 10 head equal section, posted earlier in female front pose.
  • Draw head as a upside down egg shape
  • Map the shoulder line, waistline and hipline in the 1 ½ , 3 ½ and 4 ½ head from the top of the center-line
  • For this pose the shoulder is sloped, draw the line in 1 ½ head of centerline. The hip line is also sloped but in opposite direction, draw it in 4 ½ head of centerline. This consent is called contrapposto. The waist and hipline always are in same direction and create a kind of box. The shoulder line and bust line are also in same direction and create another box. The relation between hip box and shoulder box create your contrapposto pose.
Note : when we draw shoulder higher in one side, the hip goes lower at the same side. In the other side we should draw shoulder lower and hip higher. This concept of shifting body weight is called S curve

  • The S curve always start at the hollow of the neck and depends on curve of body is. Draw the S curve which is ending up and the end of centerline.
  • Measure the half of distance between the ankle to the hip. This is your model’s knee cap.
  • Draw the triangle at the last head section, this is your left foot and ankle.
  • To draw the other leg start from hip position on the plumb line. You can draw the leg out or take the knee out and bring the foot back closer to the plumb line
  • Mark the width of the shoulder line equal to 3 cheek width, next draw small circle at the end of the shoulder line. This is model’s shoulder socket.
  • For drawing the arm you need to find elbow measurement, As I mentioned in female frontal pose the elbow position is related to waist point but for this figure the shoulder line is sloped, So elbow should flow the shoulder slope, low in the left side and high in the right side. Connect the shoulder socket to the elbow and then to the wrist.
  • Draw the neck and then connect halfway between end of the head and shoulder line in center line to the arm socket. This is models shoulder shoulder slope.
For developing your figure follow the steps bellow, It is better to use a marker but you can use a pencil as well.

Draw the inside leg and indicate the shoe. Indicate the kneecap.
  • Draw the inside of the left leg the outside of leg flow the inside leg until you reach the knee, the kneecap is not drawn round you should draw it with ankle to it. Continue leg line to the ankle. Draw the inside of right leg but don’t forget the curve in calf muscle.
