Drawing an Unmasked Face

Step 1.


We will begin by drawing the guides for the head, face, shoulders and arm.

Step 2.


Using the facial guidelines begin drawing the shapes of her sad eyes. As you can see they are semi closed. Draw the thick lashes and then draw the nose and eyelid.

Step 3.


All you have to do here is draw in the falling tears which are streaming down her face. once that is done draw in her mouth and or lips.

Step 4.


Define the shape of the girl's face like so, then draw in her hairstyle. I chose to go with a short style because when this particular figure was saddened by her loss, she cut all her hair off. Add detailing to the hair and then proceed to step five.

Step 5.


Up next, draw in the shape of her long neck, then draw the shoulders, torso shape and then her left arm and hand. Add the little details and definition on the body and then you can proceed to step six.

Step 6.


For the last drawing step all you have to do is draw the mask that she is holding in her hand. She just removed the mask from her face, this represents hidden sorrow. Erase your mistakes and guides.

Step 7.


Here is the line art. You can now color in your girl any way you like. Be sure to add a nice background.

I hate when you have a dream of strange and unusual things. Sometimes you don't want to wake up, and sometimes you scream when you wake up.

Description: Hey folks, welcome back to an inspirational lesson that will show you how to draw an unmasked face, step by step. I really had a lot of fun with this lesson. I was thinking of a friend who just went through a relationship that wasn't one hundred percent trustworthy. She was dating a guy for a few months and come to find out he had been involved with someone else behind the sidelines. Anyways, this drawing concept is supposed to represent fallacy, deceit, and the unknowing. I worked long and hard on this lesson and I hope that you all enjoy the end results of my work that I am sharing with all of you now. I shall be back with some other cool lessons so stay tuned in to see what they are. Adios amigos and remember, love lost isn't the worst thing in the world.
