Face Drawing Tutorial by hel999 Face Drawing Tutorial by hel999
Hey! I've finally decided to make a tutorial:D Well, I already had some of the material so I just needed to assemble it.

It's about drawing faces. I've made a lot of traditional portraits in the past (can't really show you much here because they belong to the people who commissioned them and I don't have their permission and sometimes I just didn't take photos). Because of that some people came and asked me how to draw faces and wanted to take "lessons" so I had to start thinking about how it works. Now I took the time to put it all together for you in a nice tutorial. It's not the invention of the wheel but it may be helpful for some.

I used my own traditional and digital drawings plus some free ressources from wikimedia commons, cgtextures.com and dreamstime.com .

P.S.: Click "download" for correct size = clear text.

Enjoy!

This is brilliant! I'm taking a human life drawing course, and we're focusing on the human face now, and I'm having a difficult time. This tutorial is extremely helpful. Thank you for sharing!!

"Between the eyes there's almost enough space for a third eye, and between eye and the side of the face theres space for about half of an eye."
"Below the circle add about the radius of the circle (3). Horizontal line at 1/2 is for the eyes."
"The eyes form a triangle and they're about one eye-profile-size away from the bridge of the nose."
THANK YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU SO MUCH! :love: I've been looking for guides like those for AGES!

Thank you so much for this tutorial! It's a lot more helpful then all the others I've seen and I actually managed something halfway decent with it. I'm sure you're very busy but I'd appreciate it so much if you could critique the practice sketch I did with this tutorial, and if you could be brutally honest that's even better. xD And no worries, I'm not one of those people who takes critiques just to argue with them. Though I understand if you don't have the time to of course. ^^ Link to it here pure-dragon97.deviantart.com/a...

This is great! It's very simple but still helpful. I only recently decided to try drawing people (before I told myself it was too hard. Stupid, right?) so this came at an extremely convenient time for me. Congrats on the DD~!
