The best way to learn how to draw anything is by observing and drawing human beings. If you know how to render the figure well, your skills at creating nonfigurative and even abstract art will be stronger. Life drawing teaches accuracy of observation and leads to the ability to draw or paint any subject.
The more you draw the figure the more you will develop the ability to communicate movement and personality. By using simple lines an artist should be able to give a figure a real sense of life and individuality. You will learn to draw three dimensionally and to make the figures feel like they exist in a real world.
