Tutorial: How to Draw a Face Part 2

Welcome!

Today, we'll be drawing another face.

Materials Necessary for this Drawing:

Pencils
HB
2B
4B
6B

Drawing Paper
Eraser
Kneaded Eraser
Pencil Sharpener
Tortillion, or tissue

Step 1


We start with the outline. I have drawn a rectangle around the drawing to suggest the format.

To gauge whether or not you have the correct proportions, draw a grid first as shown in the above illustration. Make horizontal lines over the eyes, nose, and mouth, and make sure you have the proper angle. From our viewpoint, the woman's face is cocked to the left side (which is her right side).

A slanting vertical line is made from the top of the format through and over the woman's nose. One side of her is more visible than the other, so the position of the nose is adjusted accordingly; which more to the right of the drawing.

Take note that the light source is from the top right-hand side, so the shadows of the face will be cast…
