How To Draw People — A Step By Step Guide

Have you ever looked at someone and thought, “Man, I wish I knew how to draw people. Too bad I have no artistic talent at all!” Well, lucky for you, I’m a professional illustrator and I’ve made a tutorial that can help. The below step-by-step drawing instructions are for anyone—even beginners. If you’re interested in learning how to draw realistic people, you’ve come to the right place. Let me guide you…

1. To make things easier, let’s pick a famous work of art to reference/work off of. I’m choosing The Birth Of Venus (Nascita di Venere) by Sandro Botticelli. And I’m adding my own spin to it and giving ‘Venus’ a banging plus size bod! Alright, now let’s focus on studying our subject.

2. Let’s measure where everything lands by making some lines on a piece of paper, our X-axis lines if you will. If you notice not a lot of lines are straight. Humans stand pretty funny, huh?

3. Begin with an oval for your noggin. It should land inside the lines you made!

4. Ok, here comes the top of your torso, or your chest. We are also using an oval here. It should land right underneath your head.

5. Draw a circle underneath your chest. This will be your hip area. With the female body, the chest is usually a little narrower than the hips. With the male body, the chest is (usually) bigger.
