Draw a Better Face

By Brianna Bilter

Start out by sketching circles and lines! Lift your elbow and draw in one fluid motion. These will become a front and profile view.


The lines place the eyes, nose, and mouth. Go over the outline and make the chin slightly angular. Place facial features with their basic shapes. Start to add detail and shape. Note how the profile indents under the brow and above and below the mouth.



The ears should fall between the upper eye and the nose, and along the midline in the profile. Also trace in the hairline.


 Add a little detail! And maybe some shapely brows... 


And there you go! With some practice you'll be drawing better heads in no time.
