How to Draw female heads with Otis College of Art & Design
Kathryn Hagen teaches us how to draw female heads in this tutorial. Start with an oval and dissect it horizontally and vertically. Draw in the hairline, as well as the eyes, nose, and mouth. You can measure out where everything should go by using the lines as a reference point. Add details into the eye, then continue on to add more details to the nose, showing the nostrils. Draw more details on the mouth, then define the center of the lip and shape. Draw on the ears, and add a line where the cheekbones are. Use shading to your advantage and to help you show the shape of the bone. The hair will add volume to the head, so add shape and make the top larger than the rest.
