Two Faces Tattoo Drawing

Artist: Dawn / November 29, 2015

Step 1.

Make a V shape and draw two head guides on the ends of each side of the V shaped line you made.

Step 2.

Let's start on the left and draw in the subtle profile of a face that is the sad side. Add the hairline and proceed to step three.

Step 3.

We will draw the structure for the second face and then add in the long stringy hair as well as form the lining of a heart.

Step 4.

Draw in the left side of the head and draw the hair for both that join as one. This forms the heart of the two sides.

Step 5.

Lastly, draw in the faces for both sides. The saddened face should have a crying eye and a saddened frown. The right face should have a screaming mouth, nose and rage crying eyes. Erase the mistakes and guides.

Step 6.

Add the detailing inside your heart to create the madness swirling in the middle like you see in the colored image.

Description: Even though the title of this lesson doesn't explain the story between these two very different faces, there is a deep meaning that can be read differently by many. I will tell you what my interpretation is of the art that you see here, but you may also have your own idea based on what you are going through in life right now. This drawing is based on my feelings for someone I am close too. I call this drawing 'In the heart of confusion'. The left side of the image portrays a girl that is sad, heartbroken, confused, lost, and emotionally unstable while the girl to the right showcases her portrayal of madness, frustration, angry, crazy, and mentally unstable. The two heads combined are shaped like a warped heart which conveys the split side to ourselves. While one side is trying to stay human, the other side just wants to rip out and go mad to show all the rage inside. Even though this is a relatively easy lesson to follow and recreate, the meaning is so much more complicated. Enjoy the tutorial folks, I will be back with more tuts for you all.
