As you move down to the pelvis, use small curved lines to define the top of the pelvic bones. The lines will become a little longer and much more rounded as you move on to the hip area. For best results use long sleek, smooth lines to blend the hip into the thigh muscles. Sharper angles will be used to show the definition and bone in the knee. Gradually curve your lines outward again, once you move on to the calf muscles. It’s a great idea to use your photo reference to check your placement of the different body proportions. Use smaller sharper curves as you work your way down to the ankles and feet. Again, details such as fingers and toes will be revisited later on in more advanced sketching. Lastly, sketch in the style lines on the body which we will also revisit when we add clothing to the finished croquis.
