a woman from a photo is easiest when your sketch paper and reference
photograph are of equal size.
greatly reduces overall female figure distortion. Nowadays it
is easy to print custom sized photos at home. You can even print
screen captures from paused HD videos or DVDS.
sheet of plain white card stock underneath your drawing hand not
only helps prevent smudging, but can also be used as a ruler to
establish accurate distances. Just lay it across your photograph
and mark the edge with your drawing pencil.
photographs will cause your ladies to appear generic or even cartoonish
as the subtle curves of their figures are overlooked. Using card
stock as a ruler will always produce a more precise drawing than
softly and any mistakes made can be easily erased. When you obsess
about making mistakes, your drawing hand becomes rigid. As the
pressure of the pencil tip against the paper increases, lines
and shadings become more difficult to erase. Just relax. Take
it for granted the drawing will be completed without having to
start over from scratch.
do suggest drawing faces to a point that you are satisfied before
moving on to the rest of the body. Faces often require the most
detail that you don't want to put off until the last moment. If
the face does not turn out to your liking, better for this to
happen before too much time and effort is invested.
sure your sketch paper is clean of debris. Spray the finished
artwork with a few light coats of Krylon Workable Fixatif
to prevent future smudgings or deteriorations. This product will
prevent you from erasing, yet allow you to make necessary additions.
you have difficulty obtaining this product, Krylon Crystal
Clear Satin will suffice, but should only be used when artwork
is completely finished. You will NOT be able to make alterations
after using this product.
the above advice ( and practice and patience ), you'll be able
to draw realistic topless female portraits or a completely undressed
woman from head to toe. And you will be able to do this without
wasting your time searching for and watching silly YouTube
videos that don't even feature an actual naked woman or an
endless parade of gimmicky step by step tutorials illustrating
how to draw the idealized proportions of a fake nude girl.
four example sketches I provided would be more detailed had I
done them on 11 X 14 inch or larger paper. The larger the drawing,
the more realistic it would appear on your PC, smartphone or tablet.
particular examples were done on 8.5 X 11 inch paper from a sketchbook
available at Wal-Mart for less than $9. I used ordinary No. 2
writing pencils manufactured by The Write Dudes that
cost 10 cents each. You do not need fancy expensive art supplies.

next to my wife on the sofa while the television is on.
are the most important pieces of advice I can give you.
what you see with your eyes. Avoid drawing what you think
you should be drawing. Do not improvise. Rely on the exact details
in your photo rather than vague notions in your mind. This is
the difference between drawing the unique female model in a photo
and generic looking ladies that usually result from most gimmicky
step by step tutorials.
will be staring at your reference photo for hours, then looking
at your finished artwork for a lifetime. So draw what is pleasing
to your eyes by sketching subjects that you enjoy looking at.
Little petite ladies, full figured girls, flat chested, larged
breasted, blondes, brunettes, redheads - whatever butters your
not draw females of different races, shapes and ages for the sake
of political correctness or out of fear of being perceived as
shallow or perverted. Bending to the expectations of others is
being shallow. If your model preference is a college age girl
in her late teens to early twenties, then draw her. Drawing a
1:1 likeness of a human body at any age to the best of your ability
is not perverted.
sexually attracted to young ladies because they are less than
eighteen years old to your knowledge -or- they appear to you as
less than eighteen according to your very own beliefs is perverted.
If either is the case, you should seek psychiatric help immediately.
not concern yourself with trying to create photorealistic
drawings, which are usually done on oversized canvasses.
You may have stumbled upon these while browsing Tumblr
blogs or Pinterest
boards. Such optical illusions usually require anywhere from 10
to 50 hours of labor, some of which are even painstakingly plotted
out on graph paper to ensure that every detail is to scale.
your intent is to create lifelike images, it would be easier to
become a photographer. If you enjoy creating drawings that actually
look somewhat realistic in under 5 hours, you have a healthy hobby.
Should any of those drawings turn out to be photorealistic, I
would then consider you to be a talented artist.
above is all you really need to know about drawing. Attending
art classes, sketching life drawing models live in person
or anatomy studies are not necessary. Anyone can draw. The key
to successful drawing is simply knowing what to avoid doing while
you are drawing.
if you are like me and find traditional academic style poses boring,
then check out our sponsors. I recommend sites that are female
friendly and respectful of women. All the nudist girls modeling
on these sites are ages 18+ and of legal age to be posing without
their clothes on, with documentation to prove it.

I have little interest in drawing the so called sexy
glamour model with fake boobs who is painted with enough cosmetics
to fill a pharmacy shelf. I am more interested in drawing a wide
variety of girls with natural figures - which are seldom found
on the typical adult blog, teen babe TGP ( thumbnail gallery post
) or free porn tube.
