Drawing people

Post by SapphireRoad »

So I started drawing portraits to grow ability to draw down visions in a fancier way.
To practice I've got to use some real people hence I decided to draw beautiful women so as to pass the time of learning in a more comforting way
I'm gonna put 'em here https://www.deviantart.com/sapphireroad
feel free to comment, or share some drawing tips with me

Thanks

I like your drawings, SL. They look very nice.

If you don't mind my asking, how long have you been drawing? Because it looks like you've been at it for a while and gained some experience. :)

I personally do not like using charcoal because I do smudge everything up. Pencil is my favorite though I smear that too, but it erases.
There is a rule of quartering when drawing faces, but hey, you have some interesting likenesses gong on, I don't imagine spirits and what not, stick to a standard drawing set up.

Thank you so much for a confidence uplifter which is great for freshmen in whatever new discipline :flyingwitch:

Been trying to draw down visions when visibility was good ever since... well the first ok attempt was in August 2018.
Watched some tutorials on how to draw realistic eyes or face by making lines.
I like the note that implores to awareness that two eyes are never same! Makes it more realistic.
Right now I'm attending small drawing course but we already had portraits in just 1 lesson.
I guess my responsibility is to watch a ton of tutorials. I don't understand how to make shades and the pencil-coal dilema I described in profile on that site still stands.

FireBird - yeah I draw lines horizontal but no verticals thus far, thanks for the tip and nice words too :flyingwitch:

Yesterday had it we encountered Elizabeth Bathory... I had a long struugle whether to cross the castle's gate arc in the eve when place was silent. Decided rather to not but weird feeling had it there was a presence.
She came to us as she stepped out and we talked a bit and shared some gifts.
Very heartfelt encounter. She has charisma of nobility and gracefulness and perhaps bit of sadness too. Just like many of us.

By the way, concerning places where people meet. that site is like freethinker's café in some town... on internet and among artists... I missed a lot by not being signed over there, beautiful galleries are on that site of artists whose proficiency broadly varies in different styles.
