Once you understand the basic ratio of the face – 50/50/50 – halfway down the face you get the eye line, halfway down that you get the nose line and halfway down that you get the mouth line, you can start drawing characters from different angles.

All you need to do is make a new layer in your drawing tool, and block out those lines and then start angling the face in the way you want, side profile, 45 degree angle, slightly tilted.

I’ve included brand new drawings and tutorials on the drawing heads folder on my facebook group, so if you want to go there and download them that will help you out like it helped me out.

Next week, I will finalize drawing a character from scratch, looking at how to draw a full body character from different angles.

There are some similarities between drawing men and drawing women. First, the basic rules that similar between men and women. Both men and women are about 7 heads tall, and their shoulders and chests are 2.5-3 heads wide. That’s where the similarities end, women’s waists are narrower being 2 heads wide, and the hips of the woman is as wide as their shoulders, so women are more curvy than a man.

In this lesson, we have four tutorials from drawing hub, two that I saved before the tutorials got updated, and two updated tutorials. So if you want to spend time drawing each tutorial 10 times each, you can get all kinds of practice on it.

I always recommend a pencil tool in painting programs to draw before you go onto pen tools, because the pen tool needs to be very precise to look right, where a pencil tool can be drawn over to make look right, a pen tool looks messy if you do that.

After you get enough practice on both the male drawing and the female drawing, take a try at using the pen tool in your drawings. It can be frustrating at first, but after time will get better at it.
