How To Draw People

Posted by Koosje Koene in ArtJournal, Draw Tip, Draw Tip Tuesday on April 2, 2019

Welcome to Draw Tip Tuesday!

I often get questions about drawing people: do you ask permission? What do you do if people come up to you? What if the person you are drawing is moving, or even leaving while you may not even be halfway done with the drawing? Today I am sharing some tips, drawings and best practices that can help you to feel more confident drawing people.

Hi I'm Koosje. I'm an illustrator and art teacher in Amsterdam, where I was born and raised. I went to school to study graphic design, then worked for ten years as an award-winning professional photographer. But eventually my love of drawing and painting took over and I became an illustrator. My illustrations have been published in many Dutch magazines and in 2011, I began blogging and started developing and teaching online art classes. In 2014 I founded Sketchbook Skool, which is a flourishing community of artists from around the world of all skill levels.
