  • Anyone can draw a stick figure - all you need is a circle and five straight linesfour

  • straight linesone straight line and a curvy one?

  • The point is, there's no right or wrong way to draw a stick figure.

  • So here's how you do it.

  • Maybe.

  • Step one - the head.

  • Draw a circle - well, or an oval, but it looks better if it's a vertical oval because people's

  • heads tend to be that way.

  • Unless you're drawing a dog.

  • Or a sideways person.

  • Or Dolores Umbridge.

  • Step two - the body.

  • Connect it to the head.

  • Or close enough.

  • Don't make it too long.

  • If it curves, the person might be sad.

  • Or doing yoga.

  • Or a snake.

  • Step three - the legs.

  • This is the most important part.

  • Make them longer than the body.

  • That's how most people look in real life.

  • You can make them running, or walking, or doing the splits, or squatting, or punting

  • Baxter - anything's fine, as long as they're long.

  • But not too long, otherwise you get alien weirdness.

  • Also no extra joints - unless you're a two-tailed snake.

  • Step four - the arms.

  • The quick and dirty method is a single line, but it doesn't really look like a real person.

  • People have arms that can point independently of one another!

  • And necks that aren't half the length of their torsos.

  • Arms can do lots of things - yay! scribble scribble scribble telescope point hammer!

  • you've been a naughty boy Sad.

  • And finally - step five.

  • The great enigma of the face: do you draw it?

  • I don't because I like to let people project their own emotions onto my stick figures

  • also because I can't draw faces that express any emotion other than cheesy smile!

  • And that's how you draw a stick figure!

  • Add ears for extra cuteness.

  • Hey!

  • This video is part of the "School of Youtube" Charity event, inspired by the fact that while

  • many of us are lucky enough to attend school or college, there are millions of children

  • around the world who can't go to school because of poverty or conflict or lack of educational

  • infrastructure or a host of other reasons.

  • Comic Relief is a charitable organization that provides grants and aid to tackle the

  • root causes of poverty and social injustice around the world, and they'll use the money

  • that's raised through this School of Youtube campaign towards helping kids around the world

  • get a better education.

  • You can donate either online at (for "school of youtube") or if you're in

  • the US by texting SOYT to number 71777 - message and data rates may apply.

  • Even as little as $10 can help provide school supplies for several students for an entire

  • year - that's like, one ticket to the movies, or two chocolate malts.

  • I like malts so much, I donated a hundred malts worth of education!

  • How many malts will you donate?
