  1. Image titled Stick figure Step 1
    First of all, you need to learn the proper form of the stick figure. It's really sad if you can't do that, but some people can't and that's okay. Pictures are unavailable, so a detailed description should suffice. Draw a straight line with a small circle on top. Then, at the bottom of the long line, draw two long, jointed legs with small feet that look like arms. After that, halfway between the head and the legs, draw two jointed arms with teeny circles for hands.
