Could that stick figure drawing you made in 3rd grade be the beginnings of greatness? YES! Even the most skilled artists out there started somewhere and stick figures are what they started with. They are great for story-boarding and getting down ideas quickly. Skillfully drawing them to show believable action and movement can take some practice but with some basic knowledge you will be drawing them like a pro in no time. "While a basic stick figure drawing may not be what you have in mind as great work, it is the foundation of figure drawing." Everything great starts.
