Learn to draw People accurately

Drawing People requires an understanding of proportion

My people drawing videos will introduce you to the simple drawing technique of using the measurement of the head to determine whether you are drawing an adult or a child. Sounds complicated but it is an easy way to understand about drawing figures in proportion.
You’ll soon be drawing figures brilliantly!
