Since I promised *Lozey
some drawing tips, so I figured that I'll go ahead and make a little tutorial for everyone about how I go about drawing heads that aren't cartoons.
This is more the long way I go about doing things. Unless I'm doing a weird angle or having trouble getting a likeness of someone, I'll generally skip mapping out the planes, drawing the eyeball, the mouth muscles, and occasionally the volumetric forms of the nose. It's by no means the only way to draw things. This is just how I
go about drawing faces. Hopefully it'll be of some use for you!
No matter what you draw - realism, abstract, anime, or cartoons - it's important to know at least a little anatomy and how to draw the human figure. Having a solid understanding of the basics will help you have a solid drawing, regardless of where you go stylistically.Drawing and Inking a Picture - a Guide
