Drawing. Practicing, more specifically. People say that ‘Practice makes perfect’ and it’s true. Especially in Art. And because I’ve been really bad in drawing and practicing lately, I decided I will finally take it seriously and focus on a certain theme and practice that. I chose ‘Drawing people’
After all, this is what I draw most of the time and my little knowledge of anatomy is not helping at all. Because of that, I decided to sit down, take some notes about the interesting human body, take some reference photos and finally start what I should start a looong time ago.
Thankfully, about a year ago I got a book called “How to become a fashion designer”. It’s not like I really want to become a fashion designer (even though it’s really interesting and I would love to try), but there were really useful tips in terms of drawing hands, poses, and human bodies in general.
This is learning hands and head movement from the book. The book covers everything from head to toe, these were just the basics I chose to do. Hands are soooo hard!
And these are drawings I used reference photos for. Not too shabby, eh?
And this is a draawing you could see on my instagram. I made up this girl and pose without the reference photo.
And if I don’t look on those hideous hands, I think it turned out pretty nice.
If I (or you) will practice every day, drawing human anatomy (or anything else) won’t be a problem anymore. 🙂
Can you draw? And what do you HATE drawing? Let me know.
