TIP OF THE WEEK: How to place people in a sketch
1. You assume yourself is a 5 ft tall person and people you are drawing are all 5 ft. tall just like you. So your eye line is now 5 ft.
2. Draw an eye line on paper, then sketch or trace people with their eyes located on the eye line.
3. Draw people bigger (closer to you) or smaller (further away from you) so your sketch has good depth with interest.
4. If you don't know how to draw people well, don't attempt it as bad people can quickly ruin your drawing, so find any entourage books and trace people into your sketch, just to make sure their eyes are all located on the same eye line (assume the drawer is 5 ft. tall). Believe it or not, over 90% designers are tracing people from entourage books. So should you.
5. If you are standing on the second floor and your eye height is 10 ft. from the ground, then your eye line is now 10 ft., therefore people's eyes are no longer be on your eye line.
