do you have tips for drawing humans? you draw lads so well man <3 <3
first. sorry for stupid images of rockstars, i iust tried to pick people with extremely prominent features. BUT HEY i made a FREAKING tutorial this time YAHOOOOOO
I find It really important to actually draw real people for a long while because while what i show you isn’t directly a study, its a more fun version its jusy extremely important to get a grip on human facial structure
now how ive gotten a super good loose grip on facial expressions is this
you need to pull out their basic bone structure while i never really outline it myself in my art to get it, ive outlined it because i think for a lot of people they tend to lack to look at real people ans just others artwork to teach them anatomy Please Dont. Do That Bro you arent helping yourseld if you dont know how to draw anatomy the correct way, then you learn to stylize it! back to what i was saying, sometimes if thr image is to hard from glance its very helpful to see an outline, a lot of art lacks the idea of using this and then you get into same face sydrome, but to draw someone more accurately look what makes this person in this case, david gilmour? look at how his face proportions on the edge, thats key, as well as noses too not everyone has the same bendy nose (ill get into this in a little.)
here is another cool example, see by learning and picking out cheekbone height, where it drops ect ect, it can make thr way you draw very diverse and you need that if you wanna be able to draw someone and have people recongise it.
heres sort of a list of things to consider when working on your sketch:
-how prominent is the edge of their 3/4′s view, profile ect. (if youre having trouble go in and outline it to see where the cheekbone is, what sorr of chin ect.)
-NOSE. please look at the nose this is a heavy feature as well
-eye shape while we have a genral same eye shape look above at the last picture example those are 2 way different eye shapes.
-dimples, cupids bows ect
-EYEBROW WEIGHT AND SHAPE.
now for noses i have a little thing extra on that because it’s something ive really got down on art
again the outline gives you key features anf a good example of how much noses can really put your foot in the door of how distinct that person is.
EXTRA PROTIP FOR BETTER REALISM LOL:
(left band right good) IT REALLY HELPS if they have extra features not to draw them in with a line as thick as the goddamned line art and simple shading like a value darker under it. it makes it look 7 feet deep and a lot of the time sort of takes the appeal out small lines can really help build up values and make it extremely more realistic because if yoy were to colour that to try and make it realisticly done, the one on the right would fit your purposes better than the one on the left with obnoxious shading!
SORRY THIS IS SO FUCKING. LONG BUT i really hope it helps
