1. Collect pictures of models from magazines, papers, photos where the shape of the body is visible.

2. Always keep in mind that humans are full of curves when drawing the croquis.

3.Start with a basic croquis, once you master this you can move on to drawing croquis with different poses.

4. Firstly, start off by drawing a vertical line of about 9 inches on the centre of the paper.

5. Next draw horizontal lines that depict the size of the head, chin, shoulder, bust, waist, hip, knee and ankle of the figure.

6. Do not worry about exact measurements as this is a free sketching exercise.

7. Thereafter, connect these shapes with vertical lines.

8. With the help of the vertical and horizontal lines that depict the figure, flesh it to make it look like a normal shape of a human being.
