Drawing people is most certainly my weakness. I used to ignore the existence of human beings, instead preferring to draw dragons and monsters – whoops!
If there is anything I can recommend to other wannabe artists, it would be to draw people. Seriously. Because you will not be able to escape it, unless you are very, very good and find a very specialised niche!
It’s hard, really hard – but the more I draw people, the more fun it becomes and the easier too. Learning how muscles work and how colours blend and that skin colour is fun – although I am still a very, very long way away. Light years, perhaps. But have to start somewhere.
First pic is a quickie from reference, second is from imagination…. my imagination needs a good talking to.
