In this tutorial a guy draws a 2D portrait in Blender: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ooKF4hxjaSM
The only way I can find out how to do it is by creating a Bezier and modifying it. It works but it's difficult comparing to how it works in other software.
Is there any way in Blender to just add vertices in 2D (in ortho top or side views) so a line is automatically drawn between them? It looks like this guy is doing it..
