I want to start the day by submitting a lesson that I think will be beneficial to a lot of artists that want to improve on drawing people. One of the key things to developing a human person in art, is understanding the bodies many different structures, frames, builds, portions, and character. Not only is their many different parts to a human, their is also different body shapes, creeds, and height. Today, I will try and show you to the best of my ability, "how to draw realistic people", step by step. Drawing realistic has become something of a project of mine which is why I have been doing a lot of celebrity tutorials. I really want to get the whole concept of drawing people down packed so I can virtually draw anything I want to venture on. This lesson is loaded with tips, tricks, and most importantly, the breakdown on different types of people. It's best to start this lesson on a nice piece of sketching paper, and use a good pencil with a white eraser. Each stroke when sketched should be light, precise, and sharp. It's okay if you keep making mistakes, that is expected when drawing realistic people. Faces, noses, mouths, eyes, bodies, arms, legs, hands, feet, and other body parts are just as important to draw when creating a new realistic looking person. There is many ways to draw something right, and there is also a ton of ways to draw something wrong. Obviously we all create different types of people that are sometimes sketched wrong. When you draw a realistic face, try and use the guidelines that I will provide for you so that the eyes, nose, and mouth all come out looking portioned, and aligned with each piece of the human face. If you follow this tutorial correctly, the end result will be a drawing of a realistic person. Another fun thing to when when you are finished with your sketch, is draw realistic clothes on your figure. I clothed my character I drew in paper to look like a lawyer carrying a brief case. I know the beliefs that Lawyers are bad because they only defend the guilty is something that gets talked about often. I on the other hand have an uncle that is a defense lawyer, and he said that his job is sometimes hard because even though some of the people he defends are innocent, they still wind up getting some sort of sentence. That is the reason why I drew lawyer clothes on my male realistic figure, because my favorite uncle is a lawyer. Anyway, I think you will have fun with this tutorial, but most importantly, you will learn “how to draw realistic people” at your own pace, in your own home using this awesome drawing lesson.
