While I find a lot of enjoyment and even relaxation in drawing faces, throwing bodies into the mix riddles me with a lot of frustration-- I'm talking like crumple-up-your-drawing-and-trash-it level frustration. There is such a jarring difference between my skill in drawing faces and my skill in drawing bodies that the respective parts may as well be drawn by two different artists-- resulting drawings have a distracting mismatched appearance. It makes me feel like I can't make a finished picture unless it is a headshot, which I am bored to death of doing. How can I jump off the headshot merry-go-round and diminish levels of frustration in drawing fullbody pictures while I know my skill is limited? Is there any way to make this difference in skill less obvious or easier on the observer's eye?

(Note: I've done some life drawing and read popularly recommended books on figure drawing so the general approach to learning to draw bodies isn't totally alien to me-- I just haven't yet managed to internalize it to the degree I have faces, and am looking for tips to integrate it with my relatively higher skill in drawing faces while I am working towards closing that skill gap.)
It took me ages to get around to trying it but the dA app is hella nice #goodjobdA
