How to draw a face

A step by step guide in drawing faces which look like people.

You can begin by just drawing circles then add the main features such as the nose, eyes, ears and mouth. To progress to a higher quality in shape and emotion you’ll have to learn that the human head is not just an oval stuck on top of a rigid body. The head has an inclination, the eyes are looking in a certain direction and the mouth has an expression.

With the Signus art course, even a novice will rapidly learn the steps and techniques required in drawing a realistic human face or cartoon style characters.
