2 What are some challenges we will “face”? Where do I start?Proportions- the relationship of the parts of an object to each other as well as the object as a wholeHow do I know where to put the eyes, ears, nose, mouth, etc?What size should everything be?Symmetry- matching parts of an objectHow do I keep everything straight?
6 Use the size of one eye to mark distances on the face. -The entire face is about “five eyes” wide.-The eyes are “one eye” apart.-From the eye to the base of the nose is about “one eye” long.-The middle of the mouth is “one eye” from the tip nose.-The base of the chin is “one eye” under the mouth.
11 Eyes Don’t forget the top of your upper eyelid! The top eyelid curves up and then down.The bottom eyelid curves down and then up.Men have smaller, thinner eyes. They also have less visible eyelashes and larger eyebrows.Women have larger, rounder eyes with more visible eyelashes.
12 Nose and Mouth Start with a circle for the tip of your nose. Use 2 smaller circles for the nostrils.LIGHTLY draw the bridge of your nose.Add more detail to make it look like your nose.The top lip is thinner than the bottom lip.
13 How to Draw the Human Face You need: 1.) a ruler, 2.) a sheet of computer paper, and 3.) a photo of the person you would like to drawIt is important to sketch very lightly today. You will want to be able to erase.Remember, this is a PRACTICE drawing. Do not be afraid to make mistakes and corrections.You will get a test grade for the drawing.
14 Basic Guidelines for the Proportions of the Face
16 Lightly sketch a circle. It does not have to be perfect!
17 Midline2. Draw a line that divides the circle in half from top to bottom. (Midline)3. Draw another line that divides the circle in half from right to left.(Eyebrow line)
18 4. Extend the vertical line past the bottom of the circle. It should go down about the same distance from the middle of the circle to the bottom.The bottom of the line is where the chin will be.MidlineEyebrowsChin
19 5. Draw a line just below the eyebrow line. Midline5. Draw a line just below the eyebrow line.This is where the eyes will be. (Eyeline)EyebrowsNoseChin
20 6. Draw a line about halfway between the nose and chin. Midline6. Draw a line about halfway between the nose and chin.This is where the mouth will be.Now that we have everything laid out, it’s time to start adding the features!EyebrowsEyesNoseChin
21 Remember, the eyes are “one eye” apart. 7. Start with the eyes. Draw the general shape of the eye. No details yet!Remember, the eyes are “one eye” apart.They are also “one eye” from the side of the circle.MidlineEyebrowsEyesNoseChin
22 8. Now it’s time for the nose. Lightly draw two lines straight down from the inner corner of your eyes. This is how wide your nose will be.Draw a circle for the tip of your nose. It should be where the midline and the nose line cross.Draw two smaller circles for the nostrils.MidlineNose
23 9. Add the eyebrows above the eyes. The eyebrows also mark the start of the nose.MidlineEyebrowsEyesNoseChin
24 Draw the middle of the mouth on the mouth line. 10. Draw a line from the inner edge of the iris down the the mouth line. This marks the edges of the mouth.Draw the middle of the mouth on the mouth line.Remember, the upper lip is thinner than the lower lip.MidlineEyebrowsEyesNoseMouthChin
25 11. Sketch the jaw line.The edges of the face cut off the circle we drew earlier.
26 This is where you will start making it look more like your photo. Midline12. Ears go from the eyebrows to the nose.The hairline is just below the top of the circle.EyebrowsEyesNoseThis is where you will start making it look more like your photo.Erase the guidelines when you do not need them anymore.Chin
