I can't believe the month of April is almost over, and in a few days we will be enjoying the warmer month of May. Spring love is something that is experienced on a daily basis. Not only do animals sing songs, and new eggs are hatching, people are getting together too. I was asked to do a lesson that teaches you "how to draw hugging people", step by step. This was actually a good lesson for a request because drawing two people hugging is somewhat challenging. The tricky part about drawing people with arms wrapped around them, is getting their bodies to look in-sync with each other. I still have trouble drawing that aspect properly, and even in this lesson you might notice that something looks a bit off. This is an area that I have been working on since I've been drawing people a lot more. In time I will get better, and then when I do, I will eventually redo this lesson so that you too can draw bodies hugging each other better then before. When you hug someone, you are either doing this action because you are greeting a loved one, saying hello to a friend, congratulating an achievement, or maybe you want to say good-bye to a person you care for or love by wrapping your arms around them. A hug is an action that feels different every time. There is not one hug that feels the same because every person you hug, has a different feeling. No matter what kind of hug you give, each one has it's own meaning. I hope you have fun with this lesson that you will now tackle. Learning "how to draw hugging" people, is something that every artist should get down packed. When you are done, color in the picture and maybe give it to someone that you will be saying good-bye to. I will be back in a bit with a few more lessons for you all. Peace out people and have a happy drawing day.

Finish sketching out the girls shirt and make sure you incorporate the shape of a breast when you do so. As you can see her shirt is tucked into her skirt which means you will have to draw puff lines at the waist. Sketch out the belt, and then draw out the ruffled skirt. Lastly, draw the two hands that are one the backs, one for her and one for him.
