Draw a Face Tutorial Video

Learning how to draw a face may seem like a daunting task to some, but there’s actually some good news about them. Unlike other subject matter, there are actually some very general rules of proportion that follow to get their face drawing off to a good start.

Everyone looks a little different, of course, but we all tend to have our eyes roughly in the middle of our head, noses end about halfway to our chin, and mouths sit in the middle space left over.

Developing a skill for drawing faces takes time and practice. But if there is just one thing that I wanted any of my elementary students to remember about them, it’s simply that rule about where to place the eyes. Most tend to draw them too high, not in the middle, and that gets the spacing of everything else off too. Eyes need to be placed in the middle of the oval, half way down. The forehead may look large for a moment, but that will go away when the hair is added.

Speaking of hair, I added a page to my tutorial that gives some examples of how different styles of hair can look. And some glasses too, just for good measure. Scroll down to see a preview.
