Drawing people is one of the more challenging areas of creative goofing off in class.
Anyone who has doodled during a boring history or chemistry class understands how much fun sketching can be.
Trees, houses, fences, and flowers are all fairly simple to reproduce using a pencil, paper, and a classroom seat that’s not too close to the front of the room.
However, sketching people requires a lot more finesse if the subjects aren't meant to look like dinosaurs or trolls. Knowing how to render eyes, noses, and mouths in the right proportion and place can make the difference between an insult and a compliment to the subject being drawn. Properly executed shading turns a two-dimensional doodle into a portrait of a living, breathing person. This one technique transforms random doodling into art.
Drawing or sketching people is actually pretty simple with a little guidance.
For example, faces tend to fall into categories of fairly uniform
shapes—diamonds, ovals, squares, and so forth. Bodies, limbs, necks, and
heads can be drawn to normal scale using some simple arithmetic
developed by Leonardo da Vinci, perhaps history's smartest person. Who knew that arms and legs aren't cylinders but parts of cones that are connected together?
Using these simple tips and a few others, drawings of people can take on a very lifelike quality, good enough that the subject looks ready to step out of that pencil sketch on the last page of a geography notebook. If the subject happens to be the teacher, a good sketch could mean the difference between humiliation and triumph to the unlucky student who gets caught doodling in class.
talent for drawing people doesn't have to remain a favorite goofing-off
activity. This is a skill that can be used in illustrating the school
newspaper or yearbook. It may even lead to success as a sketch artist
and a means of earning some spare cash.
In conclusion, drawing people using some tried-and-true formulas and rules will improve nearly anyone's technique. Not all sketchers and doodlers will become the next Leonardo. Learning a new skill well can be a source of pride and satisfaction that pays off in many ways in the years to come
