Step 1

In this how to draw hugger tutorial, we will draw portraits of a man and a woman hugging. For this first part, we’ll start with the man’s head.

Use a curved line for the back of the head so that the man starts it. Use some more curves for the top of his shirt collar, and then add some more pointed curves on the top of his head to make his hair look a bit more pointed. In this step we will complete his entire hairline.

His ear will be drawn with a small circle inside the hairline with some smaller line details inside it.

Once you’ve drawn these aspects, we’ll move on to the second step of the tutorial.

Step 2 – Now, draw the woman’s head

In the previous part of your hug drawing, we left a gap in the man’s face, and in this part we will fill that gap using the woman’s head.

For her hair, we’ll be using more curves than we used for the men’s hairline.

This will help make her hair look not only longer than his, but tied back. You can make this more visible by drawing a hair tie that ties it together at the back.

You can then finish this step by drawing details on her face and contours for her face to face his. Her eyes will be closed to create a formal expression, and then step 3 will follow.

Step 3 – Draw his shoulders, arms and chest

Continuing with this hugger drawing tutorial, we’ll draw some more of his arms and chest.

Before drawing those details, we’ll first add her ponytail out of the headband she’s wearing.

Then use some slight curves to draw the outline of his shirt sleeve around her neck, with his arm around the other side.

Remember to add some simple line details inside this hem to make his shirt fabric look more rumpled.

Finish off by drawing the contours of his chest and back, and then we can continue with the tutorial.

Step 4 – Next, draw the starting point of her arms and body

The focus will shift back to the woman in this part of you holding the drawing. First, draw a square, slightly curved below the shoulder for her sleeve.

Then use some finer lines for her bent arm to go around his chest. Once they are drawn, you can also draw some more hair on the back of her.

Finish this step by drawing the bottom of his shirt down below his arms, and then you can proceed to the final details in the next step of the tutorial.

Step 5 – Add the final details to your hug drawing

You’re almost ready to color your creation, but before you do, we have some final details and highlights to add.

The first detail that we will add will be the bottom of her shirt dropping down.

This will be drawn using a few curved lines that join together to make it look like her shirt is made of floral fabric.

Finish by drawing simple outlines of the dress she’s wearing as well as the man’s pants.

Once you have these final touches done, you can then finish with your own many details to finish it off!

You can paint the background or you can even change the details of the face to make them resemble people you know.

Step 6 – Finish everyone embracing the drawing with color

This is the final step of this curvy people drawing, and in that we’ll finish it off with some color. In our example image, we colored the men’s shirt green and then placed a yellow mesh pattern on top of it.

For the woman, we used nice orange for her top and then finished with red for her skirt.

These are the colors we’ve chosen, but for your own painting, you can go for something completely unique if you’d like! What color and art medium do you think best suits this painting?
