Welcome to this course! Here are a few points to notebefore you start
Drawing the Face and Head
Girl's Eye
We will first start with the eye of a female.
Guy's Eye
Now we will draw the male eye. Similar steps to the female eye with very little difference.
Closed Eye
Finally, we will draw closed eyes both upwards and downwards.
  • The closed upwards eye is used to indicate smiling.
  • The closed downwards eye is used for a sleeping character or one deeply in thought.
Nose and Mouth
We will learn how to draw the very simple nose, in addition to the smiling and laughing mouth.

Now we will learn how to draw the face. We will start by drawing the symmetric front view for a girl.
Guy's Head - Front View
And here is the front view for a guy.
Girl's Hair
We will go back to the earlier-drawn girl face and add hair to it.
Guy's Hair
Similarly, we will draw the guy's hair.
3/4 View Head
Here we will learn how to draw the face from a different angle, the three-quarter or 3/4 view.We will draw both the girl and guy in this view.
