With the help of this lesson you will learn how to draw a gymnast. I am sure that this guide will be useful for any aspiring artist.
If you want to learn how to draw a human figure in motion, then be sure to follow the new lesson on how to draw a gymnast. The figure shows a young athlete doing an exercise on a gymnastic apparatus. Here the gymnast has raised his legs and keeps his body weight on one arm.
During the lesson, be careful and try to correctly depict the position of the body of the gymnast. Observe the proportions and carefully draw the lines that are marked in red.
Now grab all the art supplies you need to complete this tutorial and get to work.

How to Draw a Gymnast
- Draw the head and torso.
Depict the head in the form of an oval and with the help of smooth lines draw the torso.
- Add the arms.
One arm, is located along the body, and the other is located vertically and rests on the pommel horse.
- Depict the legs.
With the help of smooth lines add the legs of the athlete in the same position as in my example.
- Sketch out the elements of the face.
Draw the eyes in the form of two circles, add the eyebrows, nose, and mouth.
- Draw the ear and hair.
On the side of the head, draw the ear using a curved line and add the outline of the hair.
- Detail the clothes.
Draw a semicircular neck, draw the belt and the lower parts of the sweatpants.

At the bottom of the drawing, depict the pommel horse and add the handles on the top surface.

Using the eraser, carefully remove all the extra lines in your drawing and correct the mistakes.

Use any colors for the drawing.
The next lesson has come to an end, and now you can evaluate the result of the work. If you were careful at every stage of drawing, then you should get a great drawing.
