PostSubject: Simple Facial Proportions Tutorial   Mon Jul 16, 2012 10:59 am

The face is one of the first things that people notice when looking at another person. Unfortunately, this image is so rooted in our perception that it can become distorted, which causes a lot of beginning artist's faces to look just the slightest bit off.

This is a very easy method for getting good-looking proportions, although it is by no means the only one. Here we go!


1.) Draw an even, lightly sketched, oval shape.


2.) Divide the oval into quarters, meeting in the center. Above the horizontal line, bisected by the vertical, draw a small circle. Draw two identical circles to each side of it. These mark the size and location of the eyes.


3.) Erase the middle circle, thickening the part of the horizontal line that it covered. Draw an equilateral triangle facing downwards from this line. At the vertex of the triangle, make a small horizontal dash. This is the location of the nose. Halfway between that and the chin, make another dash. This is the location of the mouth.


4.) Within the two circles, define the eyelids by drawing two almond shapes. Erase the triangle and all other guidelines.


5.) Add detail to the face. draw in the iris and pupil as concentric circles, and the nose as irregular triangle extending from the face. Define the jawbone, the neck extends from it.


6.) Admire your character's beautifully proportioned face.

Wow, this is a neat way to align facial features! I normally just guess and such, but I like your method! I'm sure this will help young, aspiring artists learn to draw faces much better.
