How to Draw a Female Face – Art Tutorial【My Sketching Technique】

hello everyone welcome back to mychannel I'm brushes and bunnies and in this video I'm going to show you how Idraw the female face there have been a lot of requests in my previous videosasking me to show you guys how I draw a face in my own style so in this videoI'll be showing you the front facing view the 3/4 view and the profile viewwhich I'm actually not that great at but I figured I would show you the techniquethat I use please note that this is for female faces only I will be doing aseparate video for male faces as well I'm going to try to explain this as bestas I could it's always a bit hard for me to explain my actions into words but Idid draw some really handy guides they are rough guides but they are mostly thethe guides that I use when drawing faces you can find this on my patreon and itis available for my patrons I will try to explain it as best as I couldstarting with the front facing view of the face when drawing a face no matterwhat sort of angle I'll be drawing I will always start with a circle shapeand this is just the general base of the head for myself and then I will thenexpand with a reference line that typically cuts down the center of thiscircle and this will determine the angle of the face and where I will draw thefacial features for the front view this is typically right down the centerI will then start with the nose and the nose will appear directly on the line atthe very bottom line of the circle sometimes it will appear above sometimesit will appear directly on the line it really depends what sort of features Iam going for but typically I will draw it above the circle in terms of placingthe eyes in the correct location I usually use the ends of the nostrils sowhere the nostrils end this is my indication if I were to draw a linestraight up to the eye location this is where I would start drawing so I wouldplace the corners for the eyes to align directly with the ends of the nostrilsor the tips of the nostrils in terms of the shape of the eye this will be ofcourse according to what you want to achieve but I tried to base it on thewidth of the nose itself I will tend to draw a little bitbut that's just my stylistic preference but this is sort of a easy way of kindof proportioning your eye to your nose shape as for drawing the lips and mouthI typically use the eyes or the pupils of the eyes as an indicator of where thecorners of the lips will end so basically if you take the pupils if youdraw the pupils of your eye and you draw a straight line downwards down the faceyou will basically align the corners of your lips with that line that lines upwith the pupils of the eye so that's how I determine the width of the mouth asfor the location or placement of the lips in general or if the mouth ingeneral I basically take half of the length of the nose to determine how muchspace will appear between the nose and the upper lip and from then on Ibasically will draw or place the mouth using that space sighs I hope that thismakes sense it's a little bit hard to describe as for the eyebrows they aregenerally much longer than your eye shape again this depends on thecharacter you're drawing I typically like to start drawing them before theeye and extend them out outside or further than the eye is drawn and so Ilike to have longer eyebrows and in general for the ear I have to be honestI don't really know how to draw them quite properly yet so a lot of you guyshave been letting me know that I'm not putting them in the proper location fromwhat I understand you have to start drawing them to align with your eye andalso kind of basically draw them so that it aligns with the nose so the entirespace between the eye and the nose is where the ears should be please correctme if I'm wrong or if I got this wrong down below in the video comment but II've been trying my best to learn this for the hairline I typically like totake the space between the eyebrows and the top of the circle and cut it more orless in half and this is where I will start the hairline and the top of thecircle is where I will basically have the top of the head or draw the hair andfrom then on I will just draw the hairstyleagain this does the pen of the character or the sort of angle of the face butgenerally speaking this is what I will tend to do in regards to thethree-quarter view I really love drawing this view it's one of my favorites andit's actually the easiest one for me I think there's a lot of expression thatyou can capture with the general angle of the kind of three-quarter view andthe trick to drawing the three-quarter view is actually using the referencelines the line that I draw down the middle of the face and also across toindicate where the eyes will appear this is where you can really play around withthe angles the general kind of angle or shape of your head and it actuallyprovides you with a kind of the key location of how to start drawing yourfacial expressions on where exactly on the face you should draw this sort ofangled kind of profile or angled kind of facial expression in terms of the rulesof drawing in the 3/4 view it's pretty much the same as the front view that Italked about already Laure unless you want to utilize thecircle as an indicator of where to draw the nose and from then on you want todraw the eyes according to the width of the nose of course you need to adjustaccording to the actual angle so for example the the eye that is kind ofhidden behind the nose needs to be drawn a little bit more maybe a bit smaller oron a different type of angle and this honestly comes with practice there'snothing really that I could show you how to do perhaps in a more detailed videobut more or less the rules still apply in terms of how to basically draw whereto draw the mouth where to add the eyes where to like the length the mouth forexample everything I've talked about already is applicable for the 3/4 view the profile view is perhaps one of theonly views that I don't practice nearly enough as I should and I probably needto practice a lot more and so you're gonna see it right now got him drawingsomething but I had to kind of refix it halfway through because the the base ofthe skull was just not large enough for her head or for her facial features butgenerally speaking the rules do apply the same you start off with a with acircle and instead of using the reference lines like the profile 3/4view by drawing in the center or cross in this case you want to use it as tobasically just draw up a draw right away um so I I start with a kind of a curvedline from the top or the front of the face and then I would immediately drawthe jaw and it would end about halfway through the the back of the circle soyeah this is more or less how I would start drawing the profile and yeah fromthen on I would start drawing the facial features like with the same sort ofrules that I've already applied with the 3/4 in the profile and the thefront-facing view where the nose aligns with the end or the bottom line of thecircle and then the mouth as well is essentially like the corners of the lipsaligned with the pupil of the eye more or less the same rules that I've alreadytalked about I do find this the trickiest one so I do apologize if Idon't explain this properly or if I'm lacking some of the basic fundamentalsof drawing this face or the the profile view um there are like I need to saythat there are a lot of wonderful resources out there that you can look aton Pinterest and also just drawing books in general as you find just drawing itfor yourself first really does help and then you can like look at more helpguides in terms of learning more of the fundamentals of drawing the faces ingeneral I hope that this video is helpful foryou to give you sort of like insights to the way that I draw characters and drawfaces in general again this is only for females I will be working on a maleversion very soon if you guys have any other sort of requests on what you wantme to show you please let me know in the comments down belowI love reading your ideas and what you would like for me to do and yeah I'llsee if I can if I can do it just keep in mind I can't draw everything yet so I'vebeen practicing very very hard to get this sort of portrait work right butyeah I hope that this video did help you also to learn some of the basicfundamentals I'm sorry and I do apologize if I missed out on specificsI'm really not good at explaining like on a technical perspective of likeexactly you know yeah like from this like point on like you just split it to 3/4or like you know just getting it to the really nitty-gritty details I find thiskind of complicated for even for myself to learn from so I try to break it downeven further than that by just going to you know simple using simple geometricshapes and also using simple reference lines so in that case my drawings may notbe as accurate as they should but then again I'm not going for a realism lookand this is more of like showing you guys this is the style that I I do orthe style that I'm actively pursuing so I do hope that this video did help youthanks once again for watching this video please give it a big thumbs up ifyou did don't forget to subscribe to my art channel for more art videos livestreams and product reviews and yeah I wish you guys all a lovely day and keeptrying keep being awesome and we will see each other very soon.
