STEP 1. You will be drawing two different views of the human rib cage. The first thing you need to do is draw frame lining that resembles that of a guitar stand. You will then move to the right, and draw an odd shaped circle.   STEP 2. As you can see you will start sketching out the actual shape of the vertebrae, as well as the surrounding bones to start off the rib cage drawing. When you are done with the left start, you can begin drawing out the right view of a rib cage like so. Just take your time, and you will be that much closer to completing this lesson.   STEP 3. Now just finish drawing out the beginning sculpture of the building blocks for this rib cage. As you can see you will draw the end shape of the rib cage that is from the side view. When you are done, just move to the next step.   STEP 4. For your last drawing step, you will now draw out the actual rib bones like you see here. There should be twelve in all, and when you are done just erase the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.   STEP 5. This is how your ribs look when you are all done drawing them out. You can now include them with your next character drawing, or you can even use what you have just learned the next time you create a new zombie or skeleton figure.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4.
