Learn to Draw - Faces and Portraits - For the Absolute Beginner TABLE OF CONTENTS Introduction: Drawing Tools Basic Head Layout Facial Features Eyes Nose Mouth Measuring Via Eye Size Front view Quarter view Side view/Profile Basic head layout There are few characteristics of a head that is relative to almost everyone, this similarity in measurements will be your guide if you are to construct a face when drawing a portrait. The eyes are positioned below, above or right at the center of the head’s perfect-center level. It is usually aligned with the upper tip of the ear. The head’s space above and below the eyes’ location are equal. The nose wings are usually aligned with the tear ducts, and its nose ball is aligned with the ear lobes (this similarity changes depending on the person’s age as the ears grow bigger). Both tips of the mouth are nearly aligned with the center of both eyes. Although you will surely encounter a person that has a little difference on these measurements, it would be easier for you to identify his or her unique proportion value if you have the knowledge about what is most usual. The familiarity to different angles of the head is essential when drawing faces. Head shapes differ in every angle. The position of each facial feature gradually changes as the head makes a quarter turn. And as it turns further on one side, their sizes slightly change and the features reveal their unseen angles, thus, totally changing their shape. A head facing in a perfect front view would have two equal sides most of the time, while a head in a quarter angle view shows the outline of the nose bridge which cannot be portrayed perfectly when in front view. The lips would reveal its thickness as it loses the exposure of its further tip. And the further ear and eye will lose its exposure as the head turns further on the side. These natural gradual adjustments happen when the head moves horizontally. Unlike horizontal movements, when a head moves in a diagonal direction it changes the diagonal thickness of the head dynamically, thus, the facial features follow. Each facial feature comes closer together as the head leans further. The nostrils become totally exposed as the nose ball clearly establish its distance from the plane (face surface). The thickness of the lower lip can be easily conveyed as it overlaps the upper lip, and the eye shapes would appear flat. When the head moves downwards, the nose (depending on its height) would overlap the lips, and the eyebrows (depending on its thickness) would slightly overlap the eyes. The height of the neck would be hidden as the top of the head becomes clearly conveyed, totally changing or rather hiding the face’s horizontal height. The facial ridges of males are more defined and prominent compared to females, especially the nose bridge, Brow Bridge and the jaw line. But there are few cases in which the shape of a man’s profile looks more feminine than usual or vice-versa. In this case, you have to rely on the facial features he or she have to clearly portray his or her gender, such as thick eyebrows or any facial hairs for men or pouty, glossy lips and long eyelashes for women.

To draw a caricature is to simply draw an image that is very distinguishable to your model/subject’s identity with or without being photographically identical. In early forms of this genre, the type of figures used was animals to represent a certain person. A painting or any type of artwork cannot be called a caricature if the piece does not involve an actual person, because involving a real person as a model is the critical part of this genre. TABLE OF CONTENTS Introduction Quick ink sketches • Caricature of a Child • Head in Profile Establishing Tones/Shade Values Drawing a Face in a Proper Proportion Drawing Caricatures with a Pencil • Using Simple Reference Lines • Starting with a Facial Feature Exaggerating Proportions Caricature of a Girl - Amplifying facial expression Caricature Samples So start taking pictures of your friends or ask for a willing volunteer to be your model and begin drawing caricatures. If nobody is willing to be your model, it’s okay. I have few pictures of my friends here and they are more than willing to be models for practicing, mess up their facial features. It’s totally fine, they don’t care. Follow the steps in this book and become a caricature artist in a short amount of time. Learn how to draw caricatures easily without any formal training. This book will guide you how faces take form step by step, how to base it on a model and produce a caricature portrait with ease. This instruction booklet will teach you how to draw caricatures quickly with the use of a simple pen and marker, and then move on to using pencil and start conveying shade values and produce realistic portraits with cartooned bodies.

Learn How to Draw Human Figures - For the Absolute Beginner Table of Contents Introduction: Drawing Tools Body Proportions -Body Shape -Polygonal Form -Ball Joints Arms Legs Muscle Structure Heads Clothing Proportioning the body structure properly is important when drawing a person. A disproportionate body will mislead the portrayed perspective of your subject. Or worse, the subject might look distorted and deformed. Knowing the proper length for your subject (the person or character you are drawing) can be easily achieved by drawing the head first. In this way, the traditional method in laying out the proper proportion of the body can be initiated. The traditional method of approximating the body proportion of a subject is by using its head’s size. The height of an average man is approximately eight to ten head’s size tall, while a women’s height is about seven to nine head’s size. If your subject/character is eight heads tall then the proportions should be as follows: • The distance of the head/face to crotch is about four heads long. • The arms including the hands from the shoulders are closely four heads long. • An average opened hand is usually equal to or almost one head size. While the length of a small hand can be compared to the length of the eyebrows to chin. • The wrists are aligned or right above the level of crotch. • The lower extremities/legs are about four heads long. Adjustments are most effective by decreasing or increasing the length of each part by half head-size depending on your preferred height. The wideness of the chest is usually two horizontal head’s size or more (two and half) depending on the body built you prefer for your subject. A subject having less than two head’s size will make its actual head look too big or a body proportion too skinny. Take note that these proportions are just an approximation of an average person’s body structure. The measurements can change depending on the body type you prefer to portray, such as a long-legged subject would obviously have legs longer than four heads, or perhaps a shorter upper body to give his or her lower extremities more length. Adjustments are done according to the certain body characteristic of your subject based on his/ her function or purpose. The body proportion should also match the age of your subject. A person that is eight-heads tall effectively portrays an average adult, but it is most unlikely the case when portraying a pre-teen. Considering that the subject will have a smaller head which will be used to approximate his/her height, the number of heads used to convey how tall he/she is must be decreased as well. Considering that an average man is eight heads tall… • A young adult can be seven to seven and half heads tall • A teenager can be six to seven heads tall. • A young child can be five to six and half head tall. • A toddler can be four to five heads tall. Notice how the head measurements adjust according to their age. An individual’s growth gradually decreases as he/she reaches adulthood. But certain measurements and alignments are still implied no matter how old the subject is, such as the comparative length (per head’s size) of arms and legs and the same level of wrists to the crotch.

Learn How to Draw Portraits with Colored Pencils for the Beginner Table of Contents Introduction --Blending --Mixing the colors --Pastel powder for skin --Drawing the shadows --Proportionality Woman portrait - drawing tutorial Boy portrait - drawing tutorial Woman - drawing tutorial Man - drawing tutorial Woman portrait tutorial Author Bio Introduction: Drawing with colored pencil is super easy if you use the right colors and have drawn a good sketch. Unlike the graphite pencils, colored pencils cannot be easily erased, so we have to draw carefully, particularly the darker areas. Always draw a parts with colored pencil pressing down lightly and if it looks good, color over the same area pressing down hard. Buy good brand of colored pencils and smooth paper. If you don't have a lot of say red pencils, you can get more nuances with only one pencil, by controlling how hard you press when you draw. In the image below I've drawn with one red pencil three nuances. In the first example I pressed hard, in the second I pressed normally and in the third example I pressed lightly.
