I've been a member of this forum for awhile now,
submitting art here and there.
But art isn't the only thing I'm interested in.
I also like science and conducting studies.
I would like to ask of you this question:
do you find it easier(does it come more naturaly to you)
to draw the same gender as yourself or the oposite gender?
Especialy concerning facial features.
thank you for your time.

The male and female body are both just as easy/difficult, but the female face is more difficult for me than the male face.
Yes, facial fetures are important,
and that is more of what I'm looking for,
So I have added it in the question above.
I hope the current votes arn't changed by this addition.
I use to draw females more than males, but my females looked like beefed up guys, so I focus more on males, and plus it's easier to look in the mirror to get the proportions right.

this may not be the common rule, but where i goto draw there are usually more nude female models than there are nude male figure models, i end up getting more practice on the female face/anatomy.
plus i'm a girl so i know how our shit is put together.
that makes sense
I use to only be able to draw guys,
and that was because I could only draw guys
But I liked drawing girls, so basicly that's 80% of what I draw now.
Even though I can draw females perfectly fine now,
I still find that a male face comes to me naturaly.
Thanks for the votes guys!
keeps those replies coming
I don't have any problem drawing guys or male faces...
But I sometimes draw the hands on males too small (when drawing from my memory--with a model there's no problem) because I'm just more used to looking at my hands, I guess.
It's not a huge problem--I just have to remember to check the proportions now and then...
