sheet of plain white card stock underneath your drawing hand
not only helps prevent smudging, but can it also be used as
a ruler to establish accurate distances. Just lay it across
your photograph and mark the edge.
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 tracing.
softly and any mistakes made can be easily erased. If you
obsess about making mistakes, your drawing hand will become
overly rigid. As the pressure of the pencil tip against the
paper increases, lines and shadings become more difficult
to erase. You have to take it for granted that each and every
drawing will be completed without having to start over from
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.

here 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 step by step tutorials.
will be staring at your reference photo on and off for hours.
You will be looking at your finished artwork for the remainder
of your lifetime. So ..... draw what is pleasing to YOUR eyes.
Sketch subjects that YOU enjoy looking at.
draw females of different races, ethnicities, shapes and ages
for the sake of political correctness. Or, out of fear of
being perceived as shallow or perverted by members of the
opposite sex. Bending to the expectations of others is being
shallow. Being sexually attracted to young girls because they
look or are underage is perverted.
a 1:1 likeness of a naked person of any age to the best of
your ability is neither shallow or perverted.
do not concern yourself with trying to create photorealistic
drawings. These are usually done on oversized canvasses
for the purpose of being viewed from a distance or on computer
screens after digital miniaturization. These 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, then become a photographer.
If you enjoy creating sketches that actually look like pencil
drawings in under 5 hours, you have a healthy and productive
hobby. Should any of those drawings turn out to be photorealistic,
I would consider you to be a talented artist.
