How to draw head? Key proportions of facial features to make you draw a beautiful face

Hi cutie, I am Comic black rainbow

Are you worry about painting a human head?

Or how to draw a realistic face?

Or you wonder why the face you drew is so crooked?

Or the proportion of eyes, nose, mouth is weird?

Ps. Let these pictures become the past

Today I will share the proportion of face with you

So that you would not confuse about how to draw the human head

No matter drawing a sketch or comic face

you can draw the human head with this proportion

Further reading you might find interesting:

The human head proportion that I reference is from Glenn Vilppu and Andrew Loomis. They are good at drawing human and they have their point of view in the drawing. It’s very worth learning and exploring their deep understanding of anatomy and Painting insights. The way they grab the proportion is different

But the proportion is the same. So I try to make the proportion easier to remember and make a Youtube video. I hope it can help you when you draw the human head. According to the explanation in my Youtube video of How to draw human head proportion, I will explant how to draw human head proportion without auxiliary line again here roughly. If you think the essay is not clear, welcome to watch the video on my Youtube channel.

First, grab the relative position of the head ratio. (details of the relative position, welcome to watch my Youtube video)

Position your face, hairline, and ears.

Draw hair, eyebrows, eyes, and nose.

Draw mouth and you're done!!!!!

After memorizing this proportion

you can draw and enjoy it

Try to draw the head you like

But if you are not ready to remember these proportion

It's ok

I made an auxiliary line diagram of head proportion

You can download the it

And try to follow the instructions below

Step by step to practice drawing

Because the relative positions of the facial features are already in the auxiliary line of head proportion, you can directly draw the individual facial features here. Generally, I will first draw the outline of the entire head.

After I draw the outline of the entire head, it’s will be easier to grasp the proportions of the features.

After drawing the features, I will dd a little detail that I want to emphasize or decorate.😀😀😀

In fact, everyone’s face proportion is different. Then why do we still need to learn the knowledge of facial features? Because when you study the head, you will find this realistic face proportion is a recognized average. When we draw a human head, if you have a clear understanding of the proportion of head facial features and use it, every time you create, adjust the scale according to your needs, you will find that the knowledge will be the foundation and stepping stone of your creation. Let's try to draw a human head together!!!
