Hey guys I’m back today with another tutorial submission on a human figure. I was supposed to submit this lesson yesterday but again, I forgot all about it. I want to show you “how to draw a woman", step by step. I already have a few lessons that I submitted earlier this month and last month that taught you "how to draw a woman’s body", and "how to draw a woman’s face". I wanted this female character to be sitting in a popular position that is commonly seen when looking at female portrait art. The drawing itself was a bit complicated because I had to make her body look normal and symmetrical. I drew this woman live and I had a fun time with you guys when I did. Drawing people, and other human figures is kind of addicting. The more bodies I draw, the more I want to keep drawing pretty woman and attractive men. I am working really hard to improve my drawing skills when it comes to drawing people in a visually stimulating way. I think I am pretty good at drawing anime/manga people, now I have to get good at drawing human beings better. The road is long, but I know I will eventually get there. I really like the way this female figure came out. She is sitting on her side with her legs behind her, and she is also posing nude. The reason why I draw nude people is because I would rather have my fellow artists draw the type of clothes you would like to see these characters in whether it be a manga, anime, or human form. I still have more manga drawing that I will be submitting over the coarse of a few days. I promise there is other cool lessons on the way as well. For now you can tackle this tutorial that shows you “how to draw a woman”. I will be back again, so be patient, and have fun drawing!
