How to Draw People | Drawing Tutorials

About the author


  1. This video actually really helped me but she could have just added that after you have drawn your man icon like thing you draw around all the circles and then rub them out

  2. Thanks Howcast for making this video. It was really helpful. 😀 Your video content and quality has changed completely. 
    Before it used to be a joke watching your videos. I am glad everything has changed. 😀

  3. If you don't mind me asking, what kind of camera are you using for the overhead view of the drawing? Great vid btw!!!

  4. Thanks….i thought it was very useful because I'm a beginner. Also i seen of the comments and some of theme are stupid and childish. Some of them said that the name was misleading amd some other stupid crap getting so much into there stupid feeling like someone is suppose to care. Also some of them has been too judgmental toward the physical appearance of the lady. People! Get a life and shut up! Be happy that the women was generous enough to teach you guys. All I want you idiots to do is get a life and deal with your problems instead of judging people that is more then likely not to care at all. SMH

  5. Your skin is white but your face is brown. Rather distracting. You would think that an artist would be able to apply makeup correctly..

  6. That lady SUCKS. She basicly drew the mannequin from upper view/perspective, while the picture is central-frontal view. What's my proof? The legs she drew are SHORTER than on photo. When you look at someone in upper view, you see less of their legs, that's how they turn shorter. The feet lol, they're nearly flat, which doubles the effect. Mannequin has them looking like an ellipse. I'm not even gonna relate to the rest, there's too much of it
    Guys, when you wanna learn something, learn from the best not the worst.. this won't bring you anywhere, unless you're 10 years old

  7. the thing with mannequins is, you have to get really persistent with the curves or you end up with different sized curves, the mannequins really only good for the proportions heightwise ive found. Im no proffesional at ppl yet but i went thru a whole book of mannequin skeches, i learnt more from simpler skeletons, generalised muscle groups

  8. I'm no expert or anything but this isn't good. The proportions are…weird. The top edges of the upper-torso should meet the bottom edges of the lower-torso but they clearly don't. Then the lower-torso is completely disjointed from the hip piece in the picture and everything just looks bad! If you just want a quick sketch, it's good. But people are going to be watching this and will be learning from it so actually put some effort into so you aren't ruining anything for others.

  9. Thank you for making this. I'm trying to draw one of my own characters and I had some troubles. So after you finish with the outline you'd erase it, yes?

  10. To say this lady isn't good…..who cares? This video isn't for you, find another source. She is drawing a figure.

  11. You really need to change the tone of your cover up Er whatever that is making your face look orange. I'm sorry but it's very distracting.

  12. You did a good job with the video. Don't let these negative people tell you otherwise. Editor, focus on the paper please. This is coming from a learner and not a marketer or video editor. TY 🙂

  13. " what I really recommend is getting a small wooden mannequin"
    What I really recommend is getting a lighter foundation

  14. I found this very helpful. Don't feel bad because some people didn't like your makeup. If they were really here to learn, they wouldn't care.

  15. whatever your opinion is on this video and/or her skills, you don't have to be that rude. who cares about her makeup anyways?!? I am a little bothered by her drawing too. but geez don't be mean

  16. I personally find it very mean-spirited to make negative comments about other people's make-up, clothing, speech, etc. No one's perfect.

  17. this is so helpful thanks so much! seriously, who could NOT draw people good after watching this video? thats kinda sad if they cant draw after seeing this

  18. You're not teaching anything you are just going through the motions and not stopping in between and explaining things and why. This is not teaching. Someone can easily just follow what you are doing but no real explanation or steps. Try again.

  19. If she bothering you Don watch it you don't have to be so mean . The only reason why yall are mean is because most of yall have nothing else to do anyway. First , I'm not that kind of people that uses cus words to be mean one I love god. I know people say I can't prove that but you can see a miracle eventually . I'm not giving up on anything

  20. You guys are literally assholes. You clicked on a tutorial about drawing to comment on a persons make up, etc?

  21. Why are there pastels and paints all around the paper when you're not going to use them? I guess it's just my 19% OCD kicking in, but it gets on my nerves.

  22. Good for beginners. The camera person should have stayed on the drawing much more. Beginners need to study the drawing and every time the camera pulled back to her speaking, it was a distraction. Yes, we can pause the video on the drawing, but I think it would have been better to just focus on the drawing after her initial introduction. She was a good, clear speaker and broke it down into simple steps. And calling a cylinder a rectangle made it simpler for beginners to understand. A rectangle with curved ends is easier to understand than just using the word cylinder. My advice for all the self-righteous commenters: If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all.

  23. Thanks alot this video helps me in my drawing career cause my drawing is quiet childish and i have troubles on drawing the legs, it always annoys me every time i draw,but now i draw better than before again thanks (im 12 BTW)

  24. Can people just get over the whole makup thing her makup is fine and why dont you try to learn sumthin from her instead of being rude

  25. Thank you! This was really helpful. Ignore all of the hate comments because a lot of these views are people who you have helped 🙂

  26. A really easy position that I'm doing is an 'At Ease' pose. Simple, without the hands, and a basic 2d look on human proportions.

  27. “Having time to relax, to unwind to let go of stress to tap into my piece and enjoy the creative process”. I GOT AN AUDITION IN LESS THAN A DAY AND I HAVE TO RELAXX???
