Human Figure Sketches for NIFT Creative Ability Test

Getting your human figures right is key to score well in the NIFT Creative Ability Test. I am sharing some of my practice sketches.

Useful tips for human illustrations.
  • Always see to it that the lines are bold and confident.
  • Proportions are the most important aspect of a human figure.
  • Keep your basics right like the light and dark, perspective etc.
  • Do concentrate on the costume of the human figure.
  • Concentrate on the drapes, colour, design etc. of the costume.
Male figure

Female figure

    @tanvi.. don't worry 🙂
    practice sketching. It need not be beautiful. It just needs to be perfect as I told (the proportions, line drawing and stuff)
    join some coaching classes if you think your are not yet prepared for CAT 🙂
