To Draw Naked Women
from photos is easiest when your sketch paper and
reference photograph are of equal size. This greatly
reduces the opportunity for overall figure distortion.
Nowadays, it is very easy to resize digital photographs
or print them to the size desired.
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
by laying it across your photograph and marking the
edge. Tracing 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. Hard to believe, but true.
softly and any mistakes made can be easily erased.
If you obsess about making mistakes, your drawing
hand will become overly rigid and as the pressure
of the pencil tip against the paper increases, lines
and shadings will 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 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 minute, especially after investing
several hours of labor. 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 and then
spray the finished artwork with a few light coats

be able to recreate in pencil anything using a photograph
as a reference within 2 to 4 hours. For those of you
who have a deep fascination and true admiration of
the female figure, you won't have to waste anymore
of your time Googling for gimmicky step by step techniques
or useless YouTube
videos that don't even feature a woman without her
younger girls as models for drawing, painting, etc.
over older women by no means implies that they are
more sexy attractive or desirable. Nor are they more
pretty or beautiful because of their youth. Drawing
practice involving natural feminine or girlish figures
will only help you become a better female figure artist.

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!!! If 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.
