Description: I absolutely love this drawing that I drew live yesterday because it came out so colorful and it’s full of emotion. I will show you "how to draw people", step by step with this easy online lesson. Drawing people is awesome and I have been getting somewhat good at it. Even when I am not drawing live on my tablet, I still draw people on my sketch pad when I am lounging on the couch, or laying on my bed. I will sometimes bring a smaller sketch pad with me when I travel because I like drawing people in motion and drawing people’s expressions. Drawing expressions is wicked fun because you can sit there and see an emotion on a persons face that you never seen before. When things like that happen I will sketch out that expression and use it on an interesting concept character. When ever you draw people hugging, holding hands, or even kissing, you can be as creative as you want to be. You can choose to also select a certain kind of person to draw. Like drawing realistic people and drawing cartoon people are two totally different things. The people in this tutorial look more like an anime or manga couple that are hugging because they are so pleased to see and greet each other. I had so much fun sketching out this drawing and I know you guys will love learning “how to draw people step by step” too. I will be back later with more drawing fun so stay tuned and keep having fun, and being creative. Adios amigos!
