How to Draw Profile Faces and Mouths Side View

Artist: Dawn / May 14, 2009

Step 1.

This is just a quick sketch of six different profile faces that are commonly drawn in anime/manga cartoons. Take a look at them and study the faces as you see them here so you can get a mental picture when it is time to follow the drawing steps.

Step 2.

Again this is six more profile faces that you can study up on. This time I used a girls face instead of the male. Same facial expressions as the male, but this profile is that of a girl.

Step 3.

As you can see in this diagram here it explains the difference between a male face profile and the female face profile.

Step 4.

Like I said in step three, males have larger nostrils than females as you can see here and the lips of a female are more curvy and full. Looking very feminine.

Step 5.

Lets start learning How to Draw Profile Faces shall we? First thing to do is draw a line for both faces the way you see them here.

Step 6.

Next draw out the shapes of the noses for the female profile and the male profile. Add the lip lines as well.

Step 7.

Next draw out the jaw and chin as well as the lips and or mouths of the profile faces side view. Color in the female lips as you see here.

Step 8.

Add the detailing line for the nostril holes on both the male and female profile faces. On the male you will draw a neck line and then add the Adams apple. Erase the guidelines to prepare for color.

Step 9.

This is what your profile faces should look like when you are done. All you have to do now is color the faces in. I hope you had fun learning "How to Draw Profile Faces" and Mouths Side View step by step.
