PE: Drawing Faces in Manga Style

Mon Jul 29, 2013, 6:29 PM


Basic notions for drawing heads and faces
Welcome back everyone! :love: Today I'm going to teach you the basics of drawing a face. Before I start, I want to clarify that this is the way I do it, but there are a thousand other methods that you can follow, make sure you understand the concepts and apply them the best you can, you don't have to stictly do it like I do, develop your own way and keep on learning! :love:




Many artists suggest using circles to start sketching the head and the body but... I don't use them. I've never used them. I tried using them in the past and it only resulted in messed up lines and strange-looking faces and heads. So I dropped the circles. If you feel comfortable using them, I bow to you and I encourage you to keep using them, but I'm afraid you won't see any circles in my tutorial :giggle:

That, is the style I had before. I think you should write it in general, not just on one style. Other than that it's quite useful thanks

This is...a little disappointing, I think. You do try to explain the shape of the face and the relevance of each detail, but you failed to provide any tools to teach readers how to build the face themselves. You may be able to draw freehand just fine, but one must admit that it takes an underlying understanding to do that well. No rules, no tools, no understanding really can't go over well.

There's a great amount of art software out there. Photoshop, SAI, GIMP, Corel Draw, Illustrator, Flash, Photoshop Elements, ArtRage and more. If kids can't bother to google and teach themselves how to obtain and use software then it's their own fault.

Within this context, my meaning was of technique, method, and knowledge-type tools, as opposed to software, equipment and supplies.

I'll apply your feedback in the next tutorials :nod:. It's also important for me to learn how to successfully teach others, so I value your input! :hug:

I appreciate the time and effort you put into this tutorial.
I also strongly dislike it, but it took years of study to be able to see why. Me ten years ago would have found this very useful.

Hopefully people who are still 10 years behind their incredible-future-selves can find this helpful and encouraging to keep doing their best to learn the craft :)

I'm sorry that it wasn't very useful to you :hug:.
