Realistic side face

First of all, I grab the head and ear positions (the relative position details are welcome to watch the Youtube video).

And I draw nose, mouth, and chin.

Facial features are all concentrated in the front 1 / 3.5 position when we draw the side face, so drawing eyebrows and eyes and you’re done!!!

Cute Anime side face

According to the auxiliary line to grab the outline of the head.

Then draw the eyebrows, eyes, nose, and mouth. It may be strange when you draw them at first, but it doesn’t matter. After we draw the facial features, we can modify it.

After drawing the eyeballs, because the mouth and chin part looked a little weird, I modified it again! After that, we finish it!!!

Follow the steps in the article or video and try to draw. Observe the relative positions of eyebrows, eyes, nose, and mouth on the side face. After memorizing those proportions, you can use it and try to adjust the proportion

according to your needs when you create a character. As mentioned in the previous article How to draw head? Key proportions of facial features to make you draw a beautiful face, this realistic face proportion is a recognized average. It doesn’t the same ratio to everyone. But when you create something, if you adjust your creation after you have the conception, you will find that It’s easier for you to draw what you want to create. This is why we need to learn theoretical knowledge. It’s not right that "theoretical knowledge is just blank; skill knowledge is actual capability". It’s right that “combine theoretical knowledge and skills, and use them so that you can get the real weapons”.
