    DrawingTheGenders::Question

    Hello there,

    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.
    ~Daniel Mock

    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.

    lol,
    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...
