Drawing a human figure is quite difficult even for experienced artists. It requires years of practice to achieve excellence in this subject. The best way to learn this skill is by observing a real human being. Male life drawing classes are held in most art classes. In this type of class, a male model poses and the art students draw the figures watching the model. Over time, it becomes easier to draw the male figure in a variety of positions. Skilled artists can then use only imagination to draw the type of artwork they want to create. They no longer need a male model in person to draw a male figure.

The students become comfortable drawing male figures with the right proportions. They can draw all parts of the human body with minimum effort. These classes help them learn how body parts look from a certain angle. This knowledge comes handy when drawing figures of male subjects. It proves useful even when they draw abstract images that have some form of human element.
