how to draw a human face
Today's hub is going to be a little different than my previous hubs. If you've seen my past tutorials, most of them focus on drawing specific objects. In this hub, I will be giving you the step by step instructions for drawing a human face. In my opinion, this hub will be good for individuals who are seeking knowledge of how to draw a basic human figure.
The example images won't exactly be the most realistic, but they simply serve as a guide to give you a better understanding of facial symmetry. Please continue reading below for more information.
In this first step, you will be drawing the basic outline of the human face. Today's subject is a female with a round face. Females tend to have rounder faces than males for the most part.
Now we are going to draw the outline for the eyes. Think of the eye as sort of a lemon shaped feature. You don't have to make the eye outline as large as I made mine of course.
Start drawing the iris. The iris is generally just a round circle.
Draw in a nose with some nostrils. The nose is somewhat connected to a portion of the eyelid and just below where the eye brows should be.
Now, you can start drawing the mouth. The mouth will consist of an upper lip and lower lip.
If you haven't noticed yet, the only real thing missing in out face are the eye brows. In this step, you should draw a pair of eye brows on your person.
Focus on the details in the eye now. Draw in your character's pupils in this step. You can make the pupils larger if you'd like.
In the last step, draw in a pair of ears and maybe even a neck and shoulders. After this step, you can throw in some more details in to your character's facial features. As you can see, I added some subtle lines under the eyes.
I hope you found this tutorial easy to follow! Stay tuned for more hubs like this one in the future. Have fun!
