STEP 1 Drawing LIGHTLY, draw an oval. If you want to really live life on the edge, draw an egg shape with the larger part at the top. (You can also draw an egg shape mathematically.)
STEP 2 Draw a vertical line splitting the oval in half. Draw a horizontal line splitting the oval into upper and lower halves.
STEP 3 Draw another horizontal line ¼ of the way from the top. Draw a third horizontal line ¼ of the way from the bottom.
STEP 4 Draw the final horizontal line 1/3 of the way from the last horizontal line to the bottom of the oval. Draw 2 vertical lines ½ way between the center line and the outer edges of the oval.
STEP 5: EYES Draw the eyebrows on the center horizontal line (centered above the blue lines). Draw the upper eyelid just below the eyebrows. Draw the pupils on the blue lines.
STEP 6: NOSE AND MOUTH Draw the tip of the nose and the nostrils on the line that is ¼ from the bottom. Draw the upper lip on the line 1/3 of the way from the tip of the nose to the chin.
STEP 7: EARS Start the ears at the eyebrow line (½ way between the top of the head and the chin). End the ear at the nose line (¾ of the way down from the top of the oval). NOTE: The shape is almost like half of a valentine.
STEP 8: HAIR The hairline begins ¼ of the way down from the top. … and you can add other details to make the person unique (wrinkles, freckles, etc.)
Another Way There are other ways to draw the face mathematically as well by drawing two circles—one for the head and one for the jaw. HOWEVER, the proportions remain the same.
Human Proportions The distance from the top of the head to the chin is about 1/7 of his total height (from head to toe). The width of the shoulders is ¼ the height of a person. The length from top to bottom of the buttocks is 1 head. The length of the foot is equal to the length of the forearm. The distance from the hip to the toes is 4 heads. http://www.animatedbuzz.com/tutorials/images/proportion04.jpg
