Drawing People Realistically
My Attempts at Realistic Portraits
Click a thumbnail to see individual drawings.
I've been practicing drawing a lot lately and want to get better at drawing people realistically.
I borrowed this book from a friend, I can't remember who it was by, but it was amazing. Anyway, I followed the steps and came out with these. I know that they aren't great but they are better than what I can normally churn out, I was quite pleased with them.
So yeah if anyone can recommend any books or anything that are good for realistic drawings that would be really helpful and I think I could do with all the help I can get lol
Note from Kerry:
Well, wow, you certainly don't show that you are struggling with portrait drawing! You know what I like best? ...The page with all the bits and pieces on it - I don't know why, but they are the types of pages that I like to study in someone's sketchbook. I realize that the other drawings are snippets from that page but I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed it.
When Michael sees this page, he will fall over himself to tell you that Lee Hammond is his most favorite author/book for learning portrait drawing.
I've never doubted your drawing ability but gee, you show great promise with these drawings of yours. Keep going Rachel, you're doing great!
