In order to draw a person's face,it will take a lot of effort. The thing is that the portrait is a rather complicated genre, which requires taking into account a large number of details. In this article, we will try to create a portrait of the girl in a pencil step by step.
Drawing a portrait of a girl
- Work begins with the application of contours. We draw the head oval. Oval should not be perfectly even, because the person's face is asymmetric. From below, we make the oval a little pointed (under the chin), from above we draw an almost horizontal line - this will be the line for the beginning of hair growth. Also at the first stage we draw the contour of the neck.
- In the second stage of the work we add hair. In our case, the hair will be dissolved. Therefore, from the top line draw strokes up and then lower them on the sides, until the end of the sheet. If you want to portray a girl with a high hairstyle, then you should read the article How to draw a portrait of a girl.
- In the center of the oval, we draw a vertical line, which will arbitrarily divideface in two parts, so it will be more convenient for you to draw details.
- We divide the oval into three approximately equal parts. These marks will indicate places for the eyes and nose.
- Trying to keep the proportions, we sketch outthe place of the upper mark of the eye, just above the eyebrow. At the level of the second mark will be located the tip of the nose. Between the second mark and the chin, mark the line of the lips.
- When all the facial features are marked, draw the eyes,eyebrows, nose and lips. Do not forget that the upper lip should be slightly thinner than the lower one. If you managed to keep the proportions, then most of the work can be considered completed.
- Now we finish the pupils, the bridge of the nose. We color our eyes and lips. We make the eyebrows brighter. We put shadows on the face.
- At the last stage we make the picture more vivid, we highlight special features, we attach color to the hair.
