First of all, I will introduce my self:
Hello everyone! I'm FanKi, a 18 years old boy from Argentina who always wanted to learn how to draw but never suceed, most of times because i frustrated and decided to give up, so i could use my time for another things as sports or videogames.
I decided to start drawing, but this time i really want to do it, i know it's going to be hard, i must be patient, and it wont be fast, but i want to. (I'm really bad at xD ) I just want to be able to draw what i'm seeing, "Just want to" >.<
So, i decided to move on and draw something.
I started drawing a close friend, but i'm having some troubles
I attached the picture i'm trying to draw
Well, I initiated with the body, arms and hands, didnt have MUCH trouble, I could make it (Erasing a lot! But I did it xD). No shadows/shading, just a simple draw from a novice. Now is time to draw her face, I tried... but the results were awful, really disgusting, disproportionate, hard and ugly :/ . I'm not able to face it, I dont know how or where I should start, how to carry the smoothnes of her face into the draw, or to make it look nice. When I do it, it looks a bit... creepy.
It would be great if you can tell me any advice, wich pencil I should use (I'm doing everything with an HB), if there is any way to draw faces so they look more natural and realistics. Maybe a similar example that you have done before, or a kind of helpful tutorial. I would be very grateful.
Maybe I will upload tomorrow some images, about how it's going and a new attempt :P
That's all, I'm sorry if i have many spelling and gramatical mistakes or something like that, English is not my native lenguage as you may see >.<
Thank you very much, and I expect to be here frecuently, I saw a lot of talent from many people, you are awesome
