Sketch out the parted hair style that sits under the headdress band and then draw out the wise eyes. Add some bag lines and then draw out the mouth in more detail. You will draw two braids and then the feathers on th ends. Next draw out the band for    


You will now draw out each feather that is attached to the headdress as you see here and then make sure you add some detailing as well.

Description: Here is a really cool tutorial that I drew live yesterday on “how to draw an Indian face step by step”. I already have an Indian chief tutorial but that was done when the site first got started and needless to say it really wasn’t that good. This Indian chief face is way more cleaner and then headdress is more detailed. I love the way this random drawing came out and to tell you the truth, it was initially going to be a lion face but for some reason it turned into this awesome Indian head that you see here. The colors are awesome and the headdress is superb as well. I love the way he looks old and wise and how he also looks like he is ready to say “how”. The Native American culture is probably one of the peaceful around. I have much respect for these people because they were the very first ones to live on the lands and only use what they needed to survive. This tutorial will show you "how to draw an Indian face" step by step. I think he looks classic and hopefully you guys will learn something new from this here tutorial. Peace out and have a great day!
