In this very simple instruction, the team of Easydrawingart.com will show you how to draw a head. This instruction is one of the basic and most important and is included in the basic category.
Let’s start drawing the head with an oval, as the artists of Easydrawingart.com did in the sketch below. The lines should be very light, almost transparent.
Now depict two straight lines connecting approximately in the center of the oval. Now depict the neck with two slightly curved lines.
Now, with the help of three very short dashes, depict the location of the mouth, nose, and hairline. Now, using two arch-shaped lines, depict the upper eyelids.
Now, using two more arcuate lines, depict the lower eyelids. Then create the pupils. By the way, in the instruction about how to draw an eye, you will learn more about this.
Now move a little higher and depict eyebrows. You can come up with your own shape of eyebrows or repeat them as in the picture from the artists of Easydrawingart.com.
Now depict the nose. Start with the nose bridge, then outline the tip of the nose and nostrils. Their form can also repeat the sketch from the artists of Easydrawingart.com or come up with another form.
Now let’s portray the mouth. Using the dash from the third stage, first, depict the central line of the mouth and then the lips. Their shape may also differ from that depicted by us.
Now let’s portray the jaw. First, with the help of two curved lines, depict the cheekbones, then form the jaw as the artists of Easydrawingart.com did.
Using a pair of smooth lines, depict the contours of the ears, then smoothly depict the lines of cartilage inside the ears. The top tip should be at the level of the eyebrows and the bottom at the level of the tip of the nose.
Now, using a long and smooth line, depict the hairline. You can repeat a short haircut from the sketch of the artists of Easydrawingart.com or make a more fluffy hairstyle.
Now put the pencil aside and take an eraser to wipe off all auxiliary lines from the head drawing. Circle the artwork with a darker pencil or ink.
Now let’s paint the head. You can use the color palette provided by the artists of Easydrawingart.com or come up with your own color palette. Shadows will help your head drawing look more beautiful and voluminous.
