So I know this is the 'horse artwork' section but I figured that everyone wouldn't be that upset if I start a thread about drawing people.
I have been trying to start drawing a few more things other than horses and I have actually been enjoying drawing people. I have done a few drawings all are only sketch quality. I was wondering if anyone had any advice on drawing humans? Like proportions? What are the main things that you need to look at getting right (e.g eyes )?
Here are a couple of the first trys I had at drawing a person.
Neither of them have a real likeness to the photo. The babies expression I got right but It still doesnt have a real likeness to the photo. I don't have permission to post the references either so sorry but you will just have to give advice from these photos.
(not happy with the babies eyes but I kept redoing them and then I just gave up.
