Drawing the figure is a challenge, clothed or unclothed. I offer a few tips for those working with live models for the first time.
Consider Your Viewpoint
Firstly you should think about your distance and viewpoint from the model. Don’t make this too challenging at first. I always think that a three-quarters view is good for a beginner because straight-on can make drawing faces look flat. An extreme straight-on view for the figure is probably one of the hardest viewpoints because of the fore-shortening challenges.
