Sketchbook Tour #2: First few attempts at drawing people

by PAM LLAGUNO

Every now and then, I’ll be giving you a quick sketchbook tour. Nothing fancy, nothing polished – just going back to the days of play, experiment and pure creative expression in our sketchbooks!


I’m back again with the second sketchbook tour! I’m a firm believer in setting goals for different aspects in your life, especially the ones where you want to see improvement on. The first goal that I have for drawing is learning how to draw people. I’ve always been decent at drawing architecture, objects, and maybe landscapes (to a certain extent) but drawing humans has been my biggest frustration for the longest time.

Before I started learning the foundations by studying anatomy (which is what I’m doing now), I wanted to get a feel for drawing humans and see what my current skill level is. For this sketchbook tour, I’ll be sharing my first few drawings of people from a reference image and/or a tutorial.

While the drawings are quite hilarious, it’s still important for me to honor my starting point and share my progress. I hope that through this, I’ll be able to encourage beginners like me who’s interested in drawing to pick up their pencils and start learning and practicing.
