Oh damn, oh shit

Its tutorial time 8D Cuz I have nothing else on my plate, obviously (I'm lying). Anyways I was feeling like not working on comics so I did this. As always, feel free to trace or whatever you need to do. Sorry if it is less in depth, this is more about the shapes and how to arrange them on the face vs an exhaustive listing of a bunch of details. Hopefully this will give you a place to begin so you can make your own variety, instead of having to rely on others and reffing (if you even need the help).

I'd like to add, this is exactly how I draw faces. If you like that and want to emulate it for some godawful reason, go ahead, I guess (though I strongly advise you to develop your own style). But hopefully the principles are basic enough to be applied to any style you like.

*edit* Oop, almost forgot! my fav nose tutorial, by mimm…

Your descriptions of the “bits” are so wonderful. They actually help me as much as the drawings themselves. Sure, spheres sinking into your head may sound disturbing, but I will remember it when I’m sketching. Thanks for this wonderful tutorial.

Wow, thanks so much for this tutorial, it's one of the most comprehensive ones I've ever seen :D Hopefully, it will help me improve a bit :lmao:

Great tutorial

Thanks for the great tutorial! I'm the creator of, a website that teaches artists how to draw people by explaining difficult anatomy concepts in simple terms. I loved your tutorial and thought that it would be really helpful to my readers, so I featured it on the site. I made sure to give you full credit, link to your page on deviantart, and comply with all the terms of your creative commons license. I hope you don't mind!

Could you make 7 disney dragon drawing tutorials ?
shingworks's avatar
That's very specific (and, no)
Dragonfire810's avatar
This what that the dragons look like this pic…
Just give it a try because this my suggestion to you and you have to do it.
Dragonfire810's avatar
Your answer is no because you hate taking free requests for dragon artists like me.
shingworks's avatar
It's because I do art for a living, and my time costs money. I don't have time for random requests. If you seriously want a artist to draw you things, you should probably find out what their rates are, or back off.

I always had problems with faces, only because when i drew them, it's like every different person have got the same head size of everyone.
I'll try that.
