If so, how are you with anatomy? Especially hands and feet. I also have trouble with perspective (poses, different points of view, etc.)

I draw anime, not realism, but I don't think there's much of a difference as far as this question is concerned. Anyone have any tips?

Sorry, I do not have talents in artistic things. In art right now, we are doing self-portraits, and my teacher just said to take it step by step.

I'm okay at drawing humans. I love to draw.

I usually draw cartoon humans.

 smileyIn art class ,my art teacher said to keep on looking back and forth at the person you are drawing, use the element of shading to shape parts that don't have lines, but a shape,and don't put the eyes all the way on the forehead,, put it a little lower about where the top of  your ears are. I used those tips and they really helped my self portrait to look like me.smiley

Hop this helps!

Yeah, my teacher told me mostly the same thing. I hate doing self-portraits, but I can draw made-up people just fine, well, sort of, or else I wouldn't be asking for help, haha. Thanks though!

I'm pretty good at drawing people. I draw cartoon people. Try making them look more life like, try drawing portraits of your self.

Just... don't worry about mistakes. That's my motto. Always edit later!

Here I am, commenting a year later than before. I've got some tips now! When drawing anime, start with stick figures if you have trouble with bodies, How I draw hands and feet  is by drawing blocks, then you "flesh" them out by drawing within the block. Angles are hard but observing and constantly drawing that angle will make it become 2nd nature. Also, perspective rule: things farther away get smaller. On bodies, that would be the feet if you're looking down at the person, and if you're looking up, the head would be a bit smaller.

 

Hopefully this helped.
