1. Start with basic shapes:

  • Think of the head as an oval or circle. This forms the basic structure.
  • You can add a vertical and horizontal line across the circle to divide the face into quadrants. This helps with placement of facial features later.

2. Refine the head shape:

  • Consider adding a curved line at the bottom to suggest the jawline.
  • For a more 3D effect, imagine slicing off a bit of the top or side of the circle to create a more ovoid shape.

3. Facial feature placement:

  • Here, the Loomis Method is a popular technique. Imagine the vertical line dividing the face into thirds. The brow line sits at the top third line, the nose line in the middle third, and the bottom third for the bottom of the nose and the chin.

4. Adding details:

  • With the basic structure down, you can draw the facial features like eyes, nose, mouth, and ears. Use references from photos or real people to get the proportions right.
