Since 2005 while working with number of leading clients one of the most common challenge stated by our clients refer to face drawing. We understand, drawing head and faces can be one of the challenging tasks but focusing specifically on facial features is very important also direct observation is essential for drawing a realistic face.Face are best part of human anatomy with lots of emotions on it and thus each stroke plays invaluable deal in describing facial emotions. In this article as an expert in this industry we would like to highlight couple of pointers to remember during a face drawing assignment.

1.KNOW YOUR PROPORTIONS

Heads are never circle, generally looks like oval shape like egg. You can think of them as kind of egg-shaped, with the tapered end toward the bottom. So draw an oval outline that tampers at the bottom

2.REFINE THE JAWLINE
If you are drawing a lady then it’s quite relevant to draw an egg shaped human but if you are planning to draw a male face egg shape then do it more angular jawline with flatter chin.

3.Divide the lines
Start off drawing with dividing the face in two vertical divisions down the center of the oval so that proper proportion of the face can be traced out; then again cut it off horizontally in half oval.

  1. Eyes should be at the top
    Generally we keep eyes closer at the top of the head than in bottom as they are considered as highest facial feature.
  2. HEAD IS ABOUT 5 EYES WIDE
    That means the gap between the eyes where the bridge of the nose is located is about the same width as the face on either side of the eyes.

6.NOW LET’S PLACE THE NOSE
Divide the lower half again with another horizontal line. The point at which this crosses the vertical line is where you should begin to draw the base of the nose. Sketch out the base of the nose and a nostril either side.

  1. ADD THE MOUTH:-
    Divide the bottom quarter in half again. The bottom of the lips will rest on the dividing line you have just drawn. Draw a line for where the lips meet and then draw the top lip. Now fill in the bottom of the lip.
  2. ADD THE EYES

Draw two big circular balls to make out the eyes across the central horizontal line. This will form the eye sockets. The top of this circle is where the eyebrow is and at the bottom is where the cheekbone sits.

  1. EYEBROW PLACEMENT.
    This is another feature that varies greatly from person to person and each eyebrow is generally wider than the eye below it. They also tend to be densest toward the bridge of the nose and taper toward the sides of the face, where they often also sweep downward.
  2. PLACING THE HAIR
    The hairline is typically about a quarter to a third of the way from the top of the head to the eyebrows.These proportions work just as easily for a woman. Adjust the jawline to be a little more rounded, make the ears a bit smaller and the neck a little narrower and you have a pretty convincing female face.
