A Quick Portrait Tutorial

Hi everyone!

I want to share with you some of my recent studies. I was trying to understand humans’ head proportions and construction. This is a rather difficult task for a little kitten but i’ve started drawing courses recently and i wanted to implement some knowledge i got there. So here are the steps of the drawing process:

First of all we need to establish the overal shape. A wise man once said: “Everything started from an egg” which is quite true about human head drawing. I draw the oval-egg shape and start to divide it accourding to the basic propoortions keeping in mind some perspective distortions. Here is what i ended up with:

Next i add the shadows. I draw them on a new layer.

And finally i erase the guidelines and finish the drawing

I hope this was usefull,

Happy paintin’

Yours, Entaro
