Face Tutorial by shingworks Face Tutorial by shingworks
Oh damn, oh shit

Its tutorial time 8D Cuz I have nothing else on my plate, obviously (I'm lying). Anyways I was feeling like not working on comics so I did this. As always, feel free to trace or whatever you need to do. Sorry if it is less in depth, this is more about the shapes and how to arrange them on the face vs an exhaustive listing of a bunch of details. Hopefully this will give you a place to begin so you can make your own variety, instead of having to rely on others and reffing (if you even need the help).

I'd like to add, this is exactly how I draw faces. If you like that and want to emulate it for some godawful reason, go ahead, I guess (though I strongly advise you to develop your own style). But hopefully the principles are basic enough to be applied to any style you like.

*edit* Oop, almost forgot! my fav nose tutorial, by !mimm :[link]

Your tutorials are like a gift given from the Chinchilla gods, heh~

Just a question, in the future, do you think you'll ever plan to make a small perspective tutorial?

Aaaah, this is something I totally needed to find ~ :heart: Faces are the WORST for me, followed by feet(#2 worst) and hands(#3)

Can I say that I'm seriously in love with the way you drew all of this.

Ah I love your tutorials so much! This has motivated me enough to actually bother studying skulls now... Blarghhhh... I hate anatomy and the fact you have to know about it. :/ But I guess it'll be worth it in the end... Thanks again! :D

Oh, you'll love it when you figure it out! Drawing the skull under the face will up your game so much! Heres some good ref I just saw today, seemed very useful and I bet you will get a lot out of it fucktonofanatomyreferencesrebo…
