I never drew people as a child and if anyone tried to make me I put cats' ears and tails and whiskers on them.

I don't think it's necessarily an ASD thing. You just preferred not to draw people, simple as that. It's not something to get freaked out over.

I did draw people. I just only drew girls and women unless it was my dad.

In addition to the drawings already mentioned, I also drew the children I wrote stories about when I got older (middle and upper elementary school) and once I drew a classmate.

I drew more pictures of people than my NT peers did. They usually drew things like a house or animals or cars, etc. Not saying they never drew people, but I noticed that I drew more pictures of people than they ever did, as though it was a hobby or interest of mine. I always drew pictures of people interacting, with expression.

I'm unusual for an Aspie, aren't I? :?

I only drew people when I was into a certain Japanese animated television show, then I drew people in the style of the shows characters in the appropriate scenes. I always drew my special interests that were usually cars, airplanes etc.
