Step 1: You begin with a simple circle, nothing to fancy ya’ know
Step 2: Use curved lines to determine were the person is facing, and were the middle of the face is.
Step 3: Now draw the actual head. remember that the head is not a perfect circle or oval.
Step 4: The neck is a series off two slightly curved lines. Don’t make the neck to thick or thin. Add a slightly tilted line to determine were shoulders will be.
Step 5: shoulders are usually semicircles, but are often different due to emotion or gender.
Step 6: Now I begin with with the face. I most always start with the nose. When drawing the nose I will end up with many different types and styles, this ones more of a button type nose.
Step 7: The lips are comprised of three lines. the very top line defines the top lip, and the bottom defines the bottom lip.
Step 8: Next I use eyebrows to help define were the eyes will be. You might find that many artists disagree with me, but I don’t know. I should probably go ask one.
Step 9: The eyes are usually the hardest step, and one that I still have trouble on. Just remember eyes are not perfect. They have two defined points.
Step 10: step back and look at your drawing so far. Change anything you think needs changing.
Step 11: begin sketching hair to define hair type and style. This hair style is thick and straight, I used a series of straight but relatively curved lines.
Step 12: finish with hair. I have found that hair is not one large mass, so I attempt to separate it into multiple locks.
I’m not going to show you the lined version (it looks like poop, as most linings do) but I will show you the fully colored version.
See look all done! here has been a (tediously) long tutorial one a female face.
