Let’s draw beautiful people!

So she keeps coming to me and asking me, “Kaofu, draw?

Hmm, I think she’s trying to tell me something about the quality of my drawings! =( Well, since this is her new passion, I decided to improve my drawing skills so that I can draw nicer pictures for her. And interestingly when I was browsing in a bookstore the other day, I chanced upon this cute Japanese book entitled, ‘Let’s Draw Beautiful People’.
The book is really easy to follow, as it gives step-by-step, shape-by-shape instructions on how to draw different types of people. Like so:
So off I go for my self-taught art class! =)
