Drawing a Face Profile Easy

Artist: Dawn / April 23, 2016

Step 1.

Start with the guide for the face like so, then draw in the guidelines for the neck and shoulders.

Step 2.

Define the shape of the girl's face like you see here using the guides you made in step one. When that is done you can draw the hair line and the outline for her ear.

Step 3.

We will now add the eye, eyelash, eyebrow, and then the nostril hole, lips and detailing inside her ear. Don't forget to sketch in the facial detailing on her skin too.

Step 4.

Up next, lets draw in her hairstyle. This should be drawn in a manner to make the hair fall on one side of her face and or body. Add detailing to the hair to create strands.

Step 5.

Lastly, draw the shape of her neck and then draw the shoulder, collar bone and neck definition. Erase the mistakes and you are all done.

Step 6.

Here is the line art. I left the tattoos out of the skin because I wanted folks to choose what they wanted on their profile picture.

Description: There are many ways that you can tackle this lesson and when I say that I mean when you are done with the drawing, you can choose to color her in, or you can even choose to add some tattoos on her skin as I did with the finished colored concept. Having said that, today I will be showing you how to draw an easy profile concept, step by step. This is simple because you are going to be drawing the face from the side which means less mistakes and frustrations. I did have a lot of fun with this concept and hopefully you do too. I shall return with other tuts so stick around to see what they will be.
