How to Draw > How to Draw People

Being able to draw people well opens a whole world to you. Not only do you now have a valuable skill that can earn you a bit of change at any tourist site, but you can also give someone a meaningful gift at a moment's notice.

Drawing people is also endlessly interesting, and a surprisingly effective way to see into people's character. You will learn that
body language is as telling as any expression.

With some understanding of the human form, plus a little bit of practice every day (30 minutes is a good start), you will be amazed at your progress in as little as a month. And always remember - this is supposed to be fun... don't take yourself too seriously!

How to draw faces

I'd like to do a poll to find out how many of you would pick faces if the question was "If you could draw only one thing, what would it be?" Just about everybody would like to be able to draw a face, and, more importantly, a nice portrait. Drawing a portrait involves more than just a face, so I'll keep that tutorial for another page. This page is about how to draw a face. Its about how anybody can draw a face, and how to make the faces you draw look like people you know.
