Before your pencil touches the paper, make sure you plan ahead. First of all, careful planning will make your drawing a lot faster and easier whether you come up with your own pose or reference. It is also very helpful make the initial sketch simple by break character’s body parts down into simple geometry shapes. The easy way to draw is to sketch with clear and simple shape. They can be really rough but with correct proportion. Then draw detail over. It is very important that you build a solid foundation before adding any detail. You can even take your drawing into a more realistic stage by layering process. In this drawing, I make her pose in a generic natural stance front view with her clinching fist up. I draw all her body and partial legs. It is very important have some knowledge of anatomy as an artist if you want to be a professional commercial artist. I would strongly recommend attending life drawing session nearest you and get anatomy for artists book for reference.
