Drawn people

For me, people are really hard to draw. I'm no professional artist, just a mere amateur. Drawing people is a great challenge for me. I often fail, seldom succeed in it. I usually notice myself trying to avoid people in new picture's composition. Possibility of failure frightens me off.

And now here comes time I'll have to face the problem... I'm on the way to publish my book, the Omnis Trilogy. Having ho money to pay the professional artist I must draw all three covers myself. I managed to avoid drawing people for the first part's cover and drew a curious little dragon instead ( that's how the cover looks) , but that will not work with the others.

Cartoonish people will not do there, they must be realistic - this circumstance makes my task harder. I wonder if I have a chance... Just wish me some luck...

I'll try to do my best. And will show the result, of course)


I agree that practice is the key. Observation helps quite a bit too. Studying human anatomy has helped me, as well as, refining my shading and lighting skills. If you view everything as primitive shapes, it's much easier to create complex graphics.

Nice pictures, imho. I don't know how to draw at all =)


Thank you for your kind words.
And about the book. No, it's in Russian only. My English is ok for writing blogs there but very poor for translating big fantasy books. I realize that book in English would be easier to publish and to sell, but alas...


Beautiful drawings! Keep up the good work. Good luck and many sales!


You have great drawings so don`t give up! Your still young so you need to practice more and more in order to draw like da Vinci or Rembrandt :)
Good luck!


Actually, I think your drawings are just great. Congratulations, and keep uploading, you are doing a great job. I wish you good luck.

Any other version than russian, for that book? Just curious...
