Drawing faces at an angle

Drawing faces and drawing faces at an angle by popular demand :meow:

This is my manga/anime style of drawing and obviously styles and proportions will differ from person to person. but if you find these tips helpful feel free to apply them to your own style.

:iconwthplz:( this was so hard to make )
drawing faces at an angle can be difficult, but there are a few tricks to make it easier.

Make a grid on you initial sketch like shown above, divide it up half way for the eyes, half way between the rest is the nose and half way between that and the rest of the chin lies the mouth, of course all faces aren't the same and you can change the bottom two a bit, but make sure the eyes are always half way.

Doing this isn't just good for proportion it also shows you where the eyes nose and mouth will go when you change the angle. Remember that they are not straight lines, they curve with the shape of the face.

Foreshortening is also very important when drawing the face leaning forward, backwards etc. Whats furthest away will appear more compact and closer together/smaller while things closer will be bigger and further apart.

From the profile the eyes generally start where the mouth ends and the eyes are where the bridge of the nose connect with the forehead. The ears are in line with the nose and eyes and the neck joins the jaw a little bit back from the eyes.

Head construction

The face is one of the most complex objects to paint. It is full of bumps and cavities just like any other dimensional object, but the face also tells stories, invokes emotions, and creates the illusion that there is a real person looking at the viewer from a flat two-dimensional canvas. In the modern world, we are used to seeing photos of people at every corner. Imagine times where photography did not exist – what incredible experience it was to see a painted portrait of a human being!



There are as many ways to construct the human head as there are artists out there. The head and face are made of two types of materials: the hard and unmovable bony skull layered with soft and flexible muscle and fat. The skull can be simplified to just three geometric shapes: an elongated sphere, box, and half-cylinder.



Learn the shape of the skull by heart if you want to improve your portrait skills. This part of the head is unchangeable and similar for everyone. If you can construct a correct-looking skull, you can stylize the face in any possible way and always make it look believable. The skull has just one moving part – the jaw. It has quite a flexible joint; besides opening and closing the mouth, it can also move to the sides and back and forth! Try to make an underbite or grind your teeth to see what I mean.



To make it all possible, our jaw joint became very special. When you open your mouth, the pivot (center of rotation) is not stationary, but your whole jaw moves slightly forward! Place a finger on the side of your cheek where you can feel the bone. Now open and close your mouth to notice the forward and backward movement of the jaw. Now you know why you need to move the chin forward when drawing a person with an open mouth if you want to achieve a believable look.



Dimensions of the face

The skull is very important for the basic construction of the face, but the real likeness of a person is in the shape of the soft tissues attached to the bone. As previously mentioned, the skull is covered by layers of muscles and fat. Some areas are quite thin so you can easily see the shape of the skull beneath it. Other regions are quite thick and will move dramatically with different facial expressions.



The green pattern on the face shows the areas where the skin is the thinnest and you can easily feel bone beneath. Those regions of the face are covered by very thin muscles and a low amount of fat, resulting in minimal changes of shape. Places like the cheeks, lips, and skin around the eyes can change shape a lot depending on the facial expression. It is worth noting that we can still observe surface changes on the green areas due to skin stretching or wrinkling.


After learning about the skull, the second most important thing to remember is how spherical the shape of the face is. The face is not a flat plane that moves in space. It is necessary to keep in mind that all features are placed on the round surface of the head.



Face expressions

When you smile, you do not only lift the corners of your lips up. There is a cascade of muscle movement following the expression to create a real smile on your whole face. The eyebrows, eye shape, wings of the nose, shape of the mouth and much more – all will move depending on the emotion that is expressed.


Observe your friends and make different faces in the mirror to study carefully how different people construct emotions using their faces. You will improve in no time and your drawn characters will become more believable than ever before!


1- Neutral, 2- Joy, 3- Sadness, 4- Shock, 5- Fear, 6- Anger, 7-Disgust


The picture above shows simplified basic emotions with directions of muscle movement (green arrows) and creation of wrinkles (blue lines). If you want to keep your characters looking young do not suggest wrinkles with black lines, as the more wrinkles you draw in lineart on the face, the older/uglier the character will look. Instead, place your attention in the subtle shape of the eyes, eyebrows, and mouth as they have a huge spectrum of possible movement.


Movement of the eye and eyebrow

People often call the eyes “the windows to the soul.” It is true, eyes are extremely an expressive feature of the face. Just eyes by themselves can tell you if a person is smiling, scared, or angry! There are many groups of muscles surrounding the eye. The eyelids can be pulled wide to show whole the iris, or area around eyes can be contracted to squint eyes and create wrinkles. The eyebrows on their own have separate groups of muscles to pull the outer and inner ends – that is why eyebrows can curve up and down and create a wave shape! Additional special muscles can pull both eyebrows together above the bridge of the nose.



Observe the image above. Those are just a few examples of possible eye expressions associated with emotions. J1, J2, and J3 show expressions of joy. The eyebrow is neutral or slightly pulled up. Most importantly, the outer eye corners are squinted and elevated by the cheeks when we smile. The squint makes a real difference between an honest or faked smile.



A1, A2, and A3 are expressions of anger or disgust. The muscles above the bridge of the nose do heavy work here. They pull the eyebrows down and together, creating many wrinkles between the eyebrows and on the bridge of the nose.


F1, F2, and F3 express shock and fear. This is the only expression when you want to show the full iris not overlapped by eyelids. Different eyebrow shapes make wide-open eyes express different emotions, from surprised to horrified.


Movement of the mouth

The lips are surrounded by multiple groups of muscles, giving them an endless arrange of shapes. This allows us not only to express emotions but also let us make a variety of sounds. Below you will find just a few examples typical for expressing joy, fear, and anger. While drawing the mouth, be aware that when the teeth are separated, the chin must be lowered. The top lip can roll up and show the teeth with a delicate curve, like in smile S2 and S3, or with a more aggressive line to express anger and disgust (G1, G2, and G3).


Ever wondered why the corners of the mouth are suggested with a small curved line? The corner of the mouth includes a node (N) to which a lot of muscles are attached. See the S1 diagram. The node is a spherical shape creating a small curve (shadow) at the corner of the mouth.



Mouth muscles can work unsymmetrically. You can smile with just one corner of your mouth. Observe in the mirror how many faces you can make!


Movement of the nose

The nose is an unappreciated feature of emotions, but when treated right, it can add subtle yet important expression to the face. Notice that the nostrils stretch together with the mouth in N4. The nostrils will open wider when you inhale deeply. This can create an intense look on your character like in N5. When angry or disgusted, we wrinkle our nose like in N2 and N3.


N1 &#; neutral, N2 &#; disgust, N3 – angry disgust, N4 &#; shocked, N5 &#; intense


To conclude this introduction on drawing facial features, don’t be afraid to experiment, mix together different emotions, and create unique expressions for your characters. Most importantly, observe from nature! The mirror is an essential tool for any character artist.


Creating illustrations focused on expressing emotions

Understanding the basics gives you unlimited potential for stylizing your characters. Let’s go back to the beginning of this tutorial where I showed you the basic geometrical construction. Modifying the proportions of those elements allows us to create stylized and believable faces.



Operating with simple geometric shapes also helps you to control the tilt of the head in perspective. I went for a cute character with big eyes and a round face. I increased the size of the middle box and made the half-cylinder shorter. In the next step, I draw a skull fitting those proportions and a full face on top of that.



For a genuine smile, I keep in mind to raise the eyebrows and overlap the lower lid with the cheek. Notice how the stretched mouth lifts the cheek and makes the shape appear rounder.

How to Draw Faces for Beginners - Anime Manga Drawing Tutorial

How to draw the head and face in 3/4 view &#; Anime Style

How to draw anime face in 3/4 view

I&#;ve made a post on how to draw the head and the face in the front and side view, now it&#;s time to learn how to draw the 3/4 view! It is one of the most common face angle people draw in, especially for beginners. In order to draw a 3/4 view face properly, you&#;ll need to understand some simple knowledge on perspective and anatomy, which I will go through in this post. Once you&#;ve learnt the basic rules, you can then adapt them into different styles of your choice. So without further ado, let&#;s begin.

Before we even start drawing, let&#;s take a look at some of the things we need to know about the face in 3/4 view.

Try out the 30 Days Free Trial! The digital painting software for illustration, comics and animation!

The eyes

In the 3/4 view, one part of the face is further away from the viewer compared to the other part. So one thing you need to know is that objects of the same size will look smaller when it&#;s further away from you. For example, a car right in front of you would look a lot bigger than a car meters away from you.

When in the 3/4 view, the eye that is further away will be slightly smaller compared to the other eye that&#;s closer to us. However, don&#;t make it too small since the difference in distance isn&#;t too big. Also, note that the height of the eyes should still be the same, just the width will be smaller.

The eyebrows

Similar to the eyes, the eyebrows further away will be slightly shorter. They&#;ll also be more towards the left side of the eyes due to perspective. In more detail, the eyes are set into the skull while the eyebrows are more outward, this difference in depth is why the eyebrows are not directly above the eyes when viewed in angles.

In the drawing below, you can see that the eyebrows are not directly above the eyes, they are slightly to the left.

Example drawing anime head 3/4 view

The nose

The nose is usually shown as a simple dot or line on the face in anime style. However, placing it correctly is important. The nose protrudes out of the face. So perspectives come into play when in 3/4 view, it should not be right down the middle of the eyes. It should be more towards the eyes that are further away. This is also why the guidelines are slightly curved. You will see them in the step by step tutorial below.

The mouth

Placing the mouth properly on the 3/4 view can be quite challenging for some. It doesn&#;t protrude out of the face as much as the nose. So it should be slightly more towards the middle of the eyes compared to the nose.

Drawing a 3/4 view in anime style

I will now go through my process in drawing the 3/4 head seen at the top of this post! Since this post is on drawing in the 3/4 view, I won&#;t go into detail about drawing the facial features and hair. I will make separate tutorials on them in the future.

Adding guidlines

As usual, I started off with a circle and some guidelines. Draw a curved line vertically around 3/4 to the side of the circle and one more at the other side.

One line will be guiding the centre of the face and another will help us locate where the ear and end of the jaw is.

Draw a horizontal line across the centre of the circle. This is to help locate the rest of the features later on, like eyebrows or eyes.

Draw anime face in 3/4 view step 1

Adding the chin

Mark where you want the bottom of the chin to be. I wanted to draw a cute girl so the chin is not too low. Note that there&#;s a slight dip where the cheek is(left side). This is because our eyes sit slightly in the skull, so when viewed at 3/4 view, you can see a slight dip there depending on how deep-set the eyes are.

At the right side, the jaw ends aroughly where the other curved line and the circle touch.

Draw anime face in 3/4 view step 2

Adding in features

The eyes sit slightly below the horizontal curve line we made earlier. It is also where there&#;s a slight dip above the cheeks.

And again as usual, the nose is between the eyebrows and bottom of the chin. The mouth is located between the nose and the bottom of the chin but alittle higher. The ear lies between the top of the eyes and the bottom of the nose, it also sits around the curved guide line on the right we made earlier.

Draw anime face in 3/4 view step 3

Add in the hair

Add in the hair! Make sure there&#;s some volume/space between the hair and the skull! I&#;ll be making hair drawing tutorials in the future.

Draw anime face in 3/4 view step 4


Now you&#;re at the fun colouring part! Have fun! I will make tutorials on how I colour in the future.

How to drawing anime face in 3/4 view finished drawing

So those are the steps and guidelines I&#;ve used to draw this head in 3/4 view! I hope you find it easy to follow! Try it out yourself and see if it works for you. There are many other ways in which you can construct your guidelines, feel free to try them all out and see which one suits you better.

Anatomy drawing anime face


So far, I have published a few dozen drawing tutorials on gvaat.com, and finally, we have arrived at how to draw a face of an Anime girl. A task that requires focus and knowledge of multiple disciplines: stylization, anatomy, perspective, and line work.

I am excited to share with you what I have learned about this subject in the past three years.

Drawing a pretty stylized face is difficult mainly because very small changes create large visual results. This means we must set our expectations wisely, and get ready for small adjustments and corrections as we try to perfect a drawing of an anime girl face.

So for those of you looking for a simple, two-sentence answer on how to draw an anime girl&#;s face, here it is below, for the rest of you &#; those of you who want to dive deep into Anime and Manga drawing, I wrote the rest of the tutorial.

To draw an Anime girl face, start with a strong construction method of the head, then simplify the features and keep only those identifiable lines necessary to deliver the Anime and Manga aesthetic, exaggerate the shape of the eyes, and simplify the nose, as well as shape the head to fit the type of Anime style you are interested in drawing.

Click here to skip to the step-by-step guide.

That sounds great Gvaat, but also how do I do all that? Follow me in this tutorial, and I will do my best to make the process clear and have your drawing look like it was done by a true Mangaka in no time. Okay, maybe not that well without years of practice of drawing Manga. However, I do believe you will get better at drawing Anime girl faces after you finish this tutorial.

A quick note, before going further, I will use the term Anime to mean both Anime and Manga for simplicity. Although Anime usually refers to animated, and Manga usually refers to drawn (printed) art, the general style and approach to drawing is the same.

  7. Conclusion

1. Construction of Anime girl head

We need a solid method of construction of the human head before we can understand how to draw an Anime/Magna head or face.

Trust me when I tell you that all, yes all great Manga artists know how to draw a realistic human head. What&#;s more, they know how to draw it really, really well. Do not skip learning anatomy and construction of the face and try not to dive right into drawing in the Anime style, before understanding the basics of construction.

Luckily, there is an incredibly powerful method for the construction of the face that we can learn and practice developed by Andrew Loomis. I published a detailed tutorial on the Loomis method and you can find it at this link.

Basically, the method evolves drawing a sphere to represent the top portion of the head, then drawing in the jaw and other features based on predetermined landmarks and proportions. It is a great starting point for drawing the face. Check out the tutorial above.

Later on this page, I will walk you step-by-step through how I use the method to draw an Anime girl face.

2. Drawing Anime girl face &#; Proportions &#;

Now that we have the construction of the head covered, let&#;s talk about the proportions in Anime and Manga art.

Proportions of a girl&#;s face in Anime and Manga are grounded in reality, with some exaggerated features.

The most notable are the eyes. The eyes usually appear larger. Eyebrows appear smaller than their average counterparts in real life. (For a super detailed look at how to draw Anime eyes, check this tutorial). So do the noses, and mouths. (I have a tutorial on drawing lips and mouths in Anime style as well, you can find it here.)

Studying proportions in Anime and Manga:

The best way to study proportions is to look at Anime drawings you really like, then measure out the distances between the eye brows and the tip of the nose, the tip of the nose and the chin. As well as measure out the distance between the eyebrows and the hairline, and the hairline and the very top of the head.

You can also measure our the length verses the width of the head as well. Note that to do this properly you will need to find the head drawing that is at eye level. Various angles of a drawing of the head can foreshorten the drawing and make it hard to measure.

Once you have these measurements, you can compare them to the Loomis method, note the variation and adjust your Loomis head construction accordingly. (In the Loomis method of construction the length from the top of the head to the hairline, from the hairline to the eyebrows and from the eyes brows to the nose, and from the nose to the chin are all about the same.)

Compare this with your favorite Anime style, and see what adjustments should be made when you construct the next drawing.

3. Placement of features

One of the easiest ways to draw an anime girl&#;s face is to use the Loomis method of construction and adjust from there.

When placing features, keep in mind that although the eyes are exaggerated in Anime art, making eyes too big will make them look uncanny and often can make the face scary looking.

Pick a few of your favorite anime shows, or look at Manga, and compare the male and female characters. You will notice that the female characters are composed of lines that are less angular. Keep that in mind when drawing features. Female chins and noses are drawn with carefully rounded lines, while male counterparts are drawn with harsher more prominent angles. This is of course not always the case, but keep this in mind so that you can manipulate your drawing to whatever you see fit.

With time, through keen observation and practice, you should gain the ability to control your drawings to represent whatever character you want.

Start with the Loomis measurements for the placement of the facial features in your drawing by following this guide.

Then look at some screenshots of your favorite Anime, or look at your favorite Manga drawings, and identify how the Loomis proportions have been changed. In some Anime styles the face is much wider. In almost all Anime the size of the eyes is exaggerated. In other expressions of the face in Anime, the distance between the eyebrows and the tip of the nose, is greater than that between the tip of the nose and the end of the chin.

Gvaat, wait! Do I really have to get into these details? Do I really need to measure things out, or study the Loomis head construction?

No, not really. It is probably possible to do all of this intuitively over time. However, if you want to expedite your learning curve somewhere between ten and a hundred times, (😉 I&#;m serious), then yes, it is absolutely necessary.

A bad drawing of an Anime face often can be separated from a good one by identifying minute details, it is the same between a good drawing and a great one.

We have to get into the details, and we also have to be mindful of the entire drawing at once. This is the essence of portrait drawing, and it definitely applies to drawing Anime girls, just like it applies to drawing any human head, stylized or not.

4. Step-by-step instruction, how to draw an Anime girl&#;s face

Next up, we will draw this Anime girl&#;s face below, step-by-step, together. Feel free to grab a sheet of paper and pencil and follow along.

Step 1: draw a circle

First, let&#;s start with a circle on our page, the circle will represent the main upper portion of the head (or the head, minus the jaw).

Step 2: make markers for the facial features

Next, let&#;s find the center of that circle and draw lines to represent the eyebrow line and the center where the length of the nose will fit.

If you are wondering what we are doing at this point in the process, I am here to tell you that we are, for now, simply following the Loomis construction of the human head. I recently published an entire tutorial devoted to this type of construction, feel free to refer to it if you need additional instruction. You can find it at this link.

We will mark down the nose and the eyebrow line. From there we will push down to the end of the nose, and take another leap (of the same length) to the chin. You will have to play with these distances to get the style you like most. In the image below, I am keeping the distance between the hairline and the eyebrows, the eyebrows and the tip fo the nose and the nose and the chin the same.

Step 3: Draw the first draft of facial features

Let&#;s also cut in from both sides of the circle, and create the area for where ears will go (largely to follow the length of the nose).

Okay, this next stage is super important, so keep your focus and energy to get through it. We will now begin to use the markers from Step 2, to carefully place features onto the face, in a very draft-like way.

If you are using a pencil, press lightly and focus more on the overall shape and placement of the feature rather than the details. Eyes can be styled to look like ovals, for now, the nose can be adjusted to just a simple extension of the face. The lips can be simplified as well. We are not looking to draw the final beautiful image &#; we are simply looking to help our minds in the next stage. That is to say, we are placing down a brief sketch for the eyes, the nose, the lips, and ears, to use as an underdrawing in the next stage of the drawing.

It is completely okay, if, at the end of this stage, your drawing looks like a sketchy mess (just look at mine right above), as long as you can easily identify where you can draw over it.

Keep adjusting your lines and your sketch, to fit the style and expression you are going for. Stop when you are happy with your progress. You should feel like what you have is a good summation of what is to come in the next step. More importantly, you should feel like you have a good base to draw over confidently.

In the next step, we will draw over this sketch. If you are using a pencil, grab a eraser (preferably one that erases well without destroying the paper surface), and lightly erase the sketch you made for the facial features, until it appears very lightly on the surface of the paper, just enough to guide you on drawing over it.

If you are drawing digitally, set the sketch layer to % transparency, base this on your comfort. And start a new layer for the line art drawing that will go on top in the next step.

Step 4: Draw final lineart over your sketch

In this final stage of our drawing, we will attempt to draw over our sketchy messy lines to complete our drawing of Anime girl&#;s face. Three things to focus on as you do this:

  • This is the step where you must try to draw with swift, beautiful lines. To achieve this, try to put down confident pencil strokes that come from the shoulder and the elbow, and less so from the wrist.
  • You must attempt to see not just the detail you are drawing but also the entire drawing of the face at once. Yes, focus on the detail, but try to draw it with the larger context of the face in mind.
  • Finally, attempt to do away with sketchyness of the previous step. In certain areas of the drawing, you will have multiple sketchy lines, you will have to exercise your judgment to find the best path for the line and draw the new, fresh, crisp line only in that one path.

With the above three ideas in mind, let&#;s begin to draw over our sketch.

You should feel confident when drawing your lines. Anime and Manga art relies heavily on beautiful line art, and lines that don&#;t carry some confidence don&#;t appear beautiful to the eye.

If you are struggling with confident lines, try the follow techniques:

  • Adjust your drawing area, so that if you are sitting, your elbow rests on the table, then try to draw with your elbow up in the air, see which effort produces more confident lines for you
  • Grab a blank sheet of paper, and create an abstract drawing with swift, confident lines going across the page in every direction. The lines&#; path and direction do not matter. However, make sure that each line is created with one quick movement of you entire arm, not just your wrist. Don&#;t stop until you have at least lines drawn, then switch directly to your drawing of the Anime face.

Once you try the above, come back to our drawing of the Anime girl&#;s face, and try to focus on producing confident, clean lines, akin to the ones you see in your favorite Anime and Manga art.

5. How to draw Anime Girl hair for your anime girl drawing

Drawing hair is difficult. Here are some tips on drawing hair for your Anime girl face drawing:

  • The first step is give yourself a break even if it does not come out great the first few times around. A lot can be learned from observing hair in real life. Learn from how the light hits the hair, and how the form is defined, not by individual strands, but by the masses of the hair and their interaction with light.
  • Realize that although volume differs from haircut to haircut, all hair has some volume. This means that as hair sits on the scalp, it will produce some extra space that you have to draw. Given that we defined the head in the Loomis construction (see above), it should be fairly easy to add some volume to that line of the skull, and make sure placement of the hair on the head looks realistic.
  • When the face is turned in angles you are not familiar with, use reference to understand how hair will sit on the head.

Finally, I wrote an entire tutorial on how to draw Anime girl hair, you can view it by clicking here.

6. On frustration with drawing an Anime face of a girl

As I mentioned in the beginning of this tutorial, we should be ready for minute changes and adjustments. Sometimes, this can turn into hours of tinkering to try to develop a drawing of a face you like best, these hours of tinkering can end up feeling very frustrating. Then the whole practice of drawing can end up frustrating, and then&#; well you don&#;t want to do it anymore or you want to do it less often.

How do we battle that frustration? Well, first, if you really want to get better, you won&#;t let that discourage you. However, there are some things we can do to help.

First, go into the drawing expecting some level of tinkering. As I mentioned at the outset, drawing a beautiful face is not just a difficult task, it is a task where very small changes produce extremely visible results. Therefore, moving or redrawing the left eye 1 &#; 2 millimeters to the left (as an example), can be the difference between a drawing you are proud of, and a drawing that feels off in some way.

That is okay, the minute details are just what it takes, get comfortable with it. Over time, you will learn systems that will help you with placement of features, you will get better at approximating where the eyes should be placed to get the result you want subconsciously (yes, to the nearest millimeter), so just stick with it.

Second, go for quantity over quality, keep drawing faces and set a &#;tinkering alarm clock&#;. As an example in drawing a face over a course of an hour, give yourself 10 minutes to make adjustments, regardless of the result after the 10 minute mark, move on. In this way, after drawing a faces you will improve in your skills much more, than drawing just 10 faces that take 10 times as long to draw.

Third, look at reference, or look at artwork you love for inspiration, but also for direction and guidance. How did someone else solve this problem before you? Can you learn from that? If yes, what can you learn from it? What makes you like certain drawings but not others in Anime or whichever style you aspire to learn? Spend some time thinking about this before dismissing your current drawing as just another &#;bad try&#;.

A wise mentor told me once that every artist has a few thousand poor drawings, but once they draw through them, these &#;bad&#; drawings are gone forever, and what remains is of much higher value, and is something that can only exist given the existence of those &#;bad&#; drawings that came before. So in this sense, every &#;bad&#; drawing you create, can potentially give life to beautiful drawings in the future. I hope you see where I am going with this: on a long enough timeline, there are no bad drawings. Only drawings that help you create better ones in the future.

Conclusion &#; How to Draw the Face of an Anime Girl

Gvaat, you wrote a lot about how Anime and Manga drawing is similar to realistic drawing of anatomy, okay thanks, but how is it different? Okay, yes, Anime art is grounded in reality, this is why it is so easy to recognize even to someone who has never seen Anime or Manga art before. It is different in two significant ways

  • First, it follows its historically set aesthetic as precedent. Although Anime and Manga art has evolved over time (like any other artistic tradition), there are pretty major rules in place, such as larger and more expressive eyes, proportions that are often exaggerated, repeated facial expressions. There are also, of course, narrative elements that evolve slowly and stay within a certain sphere of storytelling
  • Secondly, there is drastic simplification of realism, Anime and Manga don&#;t just stylize reality to fit an aesthetic, they simplify reality in very definite terms. Often, a complicated feature of anatomy is simplified to just one or two lines in an Anime drawing. This simplification can be difficult, as it leaves little room for interpretation. To get better at it, I highly recommend looking at Anime examples you love, and practice from them for a while, until elements of simplification begin to jump out at you and resonate in your memory. You then can apply these elements when drawing from life.

At this point, I hope that two ideas are becoming clear, first, yes it is difficult to draw a pretty face. It could be a stylized face of a character from Manga or Anime, it is still not easy to draw really well. A lot depends on small changes in the drawing, as well as on a solid foundation in perspective, understanding of anatomy, and line quality.

Second, it is entirely possible to learn all of the skills necessary to draw the beautifully rendered face of an Anime girl. Skills like understanding the use of perspective and thorough knowledge of anatomy can be gained with diligent study and practice. If you know what Gvaat&#;s Workshop is about, you know I believe anyone can do it. What will help? Daily practice of drawing goes a long way. Studying perspective and anatomy will help as well.

Practice a lot, and be consistent. Try to string together as many days as you can of consistent practice. Try to correct mistakes but go for quantity and not quality at first. Then slowly try to increase the quality of your drawings. You will be surprised to see how much progress you will be making and how fast you can actually get to drawing Anime girls, or whatever else you desire.
