Step 1.

This is an important tip I'd like to intro to some of you novice folks on "drawing people". First things first, you'll be needing to understand that the average height of a human being is '6 heads tall'. You can go ahead and add 7-8 heads to taller c   

Step 2.

Now here's a step I had so much raving fun on! Some of you sometimes wonder what it's like to 'gender swap' your characters for trickster's sake. I swapped the genders of Asuka and Bachimaru to spread a little tormenting love... When you 'gender swap   

Step 3.

Ah yes, there was much fun and adoration put into this very step, showing you the various ways two people can react against one another. To the top left, there is a typical 'bear hug' that two people can support. You can either have someone openly ac   

Step 4.

Now you will be drawing two sets of people like you see here. To begin start by drawing out the basic guidelines and shapes to make the frame work for your two figures. Draw two heads, and then make stick figure bodies.

Step 5.

We will stay focused on the heads of each character that you will be drawing to keep things flowing nicely. Begin by sketching out the shapes of their heads like you see here. Along with the head shapes are the outlining of the noses, jawline, and ne   

Step 6.

Okay, Now begin sketching out the eyes in full detail and form for both people you see here. If you want to draw a different emotion on their faces, now is the time to do so. When the eyes are drawn out you can then sketch out their noses, mouths and   

Step 7.

Now that the facial features are all drawn in, you can now start moving onto drawing out their hairstyles, and any accessories that you may want to dress them with. For me I drew a knit hat on my character but nothing on the figure to the left. For h   

Step 8.

Now it's time to draw out their bodies and if I were you I would start with the female because she is the hardest. Start with the shoulders, and arm, and then turn around and draw out her chest, torso, stomach, and leg. The lining for the leg should    

Step 9.

Okay, draw out the rest of her body by sketching out the opposite leg. As you can see this is easily achieved because you drew the shape of the rear end in step eight. Once the leg is drawn out you can add her toes and then draw out the rest of her a   

Step 10.

You can now begin sketching out their clothes like you see here. For both figures they are wearing tank tops, and jeans, and for both figures their jeans are cuffed at the bottom. Draw in the detailing which adds the wrinkles, creases and folds, and    

Step 11.

When all is said and done you should end up with an awesome drawing like the one you see here. Now you can go ahead and color the two people in. I hope you enjoyed this lesson on how to draw two people step by step. Have fun coloring them in guys!

Description: Hey folks! It's another tutorial that must be submitted here on DragoArt! In this tutorial, I will be guiding you in a step by step fashion on "how to draw two people", step by step. Now, I like to expand and strengthen my skills on drawing two people interacting since my people drawing skills have slacked a bit. After all, I've been drawing cartoons, portraits, and lots of pop cultured things that don't entirely require a human body. The two features in this tut are my OC's Bachimaru and Asuka. You can view the two in my art gallery here at the site if you'd like to get a better taste of them. I have to admit, Bachi looks a little sick and albino in the picture previewed. The line art looks much better than the colors themselves. Anyways, I've gotta go since I've been enduring long periods of under-sleeping! Thanks for viewing this tut and have fun learning "how to draw two people"!
