Why should you practice drawing elderly people? Well, they often play an important role in cartoons, comics, and other stories.

What if you want to draw your family members? No doubt some of them - maybe your grandparents - are well along in years. And someday, you will be old, too. If you never practice drawing your elders, you won't be able to create a self-portrait of your older self when the time comes.

Pro tip: try drawing the same character at different ages, from childhood to old age. What features change over time? What stays the same, allowing you to recognize them as the same person?

An ancient proverb says "There is beauty in gray-headedness." It doesn't mean that older people have more physical beauty than younger people. It refers to the valuable knowledge and experience that they have.
