I’ve always been in awe of people who could draw a face. I’ve never liked the ones I drew and I couldn’t quite figure out what the problem was. But being a mathematician I needed to find a problem to the solution. I generally don’t believe that people are ‘born’ creative or gifted. I think if we work hard enough we can learn any skill. Especially if we do it the right way. After some research and watching a LOT of videos on YouTube I figured out what the problem was.
My proportions were way off! The eyes were not in the right place, the face shape was weird, the nose and mouth were also off. All because I didn’t know this one simple drawing trick. So here it is! I still use it every time I draw a face. If I don’t my faces still end up looking weird and wonky.
Try this and let me know in the comments below if it helped you to draw a face.
