face study first time

by Cupcake Tofu, September 10th 2020 © 2020 Cupcake Tofu

Done as part of a 30 minute class.

My current goal is: I don't know! I am an absolute beginner; I'm here to study the basics of rendering

so like ive never done face drawings like realism ive always tried to do my own style but i felt like i need to try to get it as close as i could? I'm not sure if im doing this exercise right but I would like to apply my own style to it and learn how to draw faces at different angles better. I struggled a lot with this but i really enjoyed trying to put in some expressions bc i get stuck drawing my characters from the front and with hardly any emotion ">.< I'd like some help and advice if anyone is willing to give any

Good start. Remember there is a skull under the head's skin. The head is rounded in back if you look at it in profile. I took a portrait session. Many did the face from the front OK but flatten the back. Look on the internet on how to draw a head. You will find the face head-on can be divided into 3 areas. Top 1/3 eyebrow to the hairline, middle 1/3 - eyebrow to below the nose, and bottom 1/3 bottom of the nose to the bottom of the chin. You can also find information on drawing the head in various positions. Line-of-Action has a section on drawing the head you can use. You should look up artists you like to see how they handle drawing the head. Also, remember: Practice makes better.
