Drawing The Male Face

On the face, mark the center line with 4 ticks spread equally apart. The eyes will sit roughly on this line. Don’t be afraid to move slightly above or below the line, since eyes are usually slanted. If you want to draw more mysterious manly eyes, click here.

To make it easy to digest, I split the tutorial up into 3 parts: How to draw a face from the front, side and 3/4 view. This is part 1 of 3. I came up with the original methods in these 3 tutorials by measuring over a dozen adult faces, so each tutorial carries over the same measuring techniques. Drawing faces should be easy as pie after you get the proportions down.

Start by sketching the top and bottom of the subject’s head to “lock” it on the page. This helps keep you within the bounds of the marks and determine accurate proportions without accidentally shifting or cropping the subject. Then, draw a vertical center line to show the face’s rotation in space. Finally, sketch several horizontal parallel lines following the proportions described above.

Ruler Method: Make a ruler beside your drawing that is the same height. The ruler should be marked so there are 8 equal spaces. Always start with the center line. Draw faint lines through the face on the markings labelled CENTER LINE, 2, 3, A, and C. As you get used to this, you won’t need to draw the ruler on the side.

Start re-establishing the deepest darks with a soft 4-6B graphite pencil. Then, shade the middle tones with a 2B pencil and lift out the highlights with a kneaded eraser. Keep the direction of the light and how it affects form as you sketch.

Step 2. Place the nose. Refer to your reference picture to get an idea of what the bottom part of the nose looks like. It has a half circle in the middle and two skewed half-circles at the sides. Don’t worry about detail at this stage. Use the nose as a guideline for your eyes. The outer edges of your nose (the two skew half-circles) indicates where the inner corners of the eyes go. Use guidelines. When you draw your eyes keep in mind that the space between the eyes should be wide enough to fit in another eye. Refer to your reference to get an idea of the shape of the eyes.

As always, you don’t need to stick to the exact guidelines above. Learn how to draw heads using the basic guidelines and then mix and match facial features and face proportions.

Step 9. The hair! My favorite part. Don’t worry, everything doesn’t have to be precise.You can improvise and even give him Dragonball Z hair if you want.

Step 7. Clean up the lines in the nose area. Add bushy nose hairs…. (just kidding). You can use a little bit of shading to bring out the shape of the nose. Pay attention to your line weight (thickness).

Super SIMPLE Method: If it’s still a little confusing, check out my simple method here. It’s also paired with a video so you can see how I do it!

Step 1. Copy the basic construction onto your paper. (If you’re using pencil and paper don’t press too hard – you’ll need to erase these lines later.) Draw the oval (not circle) then cut it in half horizontally and vertically. You may use a ruler. These two lines indicate where the eyes and nose will go. Cut the bottom half of the circle in half again. Then cut the remaining bottom section into thirds. These lines indicate where the nose and lips will go.

Note: Remember to use a blunt HB pencil for these steps. I used a 4B so you can clearly see what I’m doing. Remember, the darker you go and the harder you press, the more difficult it will be to erase your under-layers/guidelines.

Before starting this tutorial please check out these helpful tips.

A model’s likeness is achieved through careful observation and adjustment of the classical features. To catch the model’s character, artists frequently sketch people from life and interact with their models to understand and to capture the “soul” of the sitter. 

Step 6. Detail the eyes. Remember the irises and pupils are not fully visible; parts of it are hidden by the upper and lower lids. Draw in the eye lids. Use loose, brushy strokes for the eyebrows.

If you have an electric eraser, use it to quickly get rid of all the guidelines that run through your drawing. You can clean up certain dark spots or tight spaces with a kneaded eraser.

Through this fun exercise, you will be able to draw faces faster with little effort, identify proportional errors when you revisit old drawings, identify what makes certain faces look more realistic than others, be able to draw cartoons, caricatures and more.

Step 8. Draw the ears. Usually if it’s a full frontal view the bottom of the ears will align with the bottom of the nose, but in this picture it seems the man’s head is slightly tilted downward. So put the ears a little higher than the nose. Again, refer to the reference picture. If you suck at drawing ears, like I do, don’t worry too much about detail. We can always use the hair to cover it up *wink wink*.

To learn how to draw a male face, it’s best to sketch from life and pay attention to the following differences in faces between the sexes.

No Ruler Method: Without the ruler, I draw lines in this order: CENTER LINE, 2, 3, B, A, C (B is included because it’s easier to break the forehead section in half first, especially when you’re drawing freehand). This is the method I use to draw heads all the time.

Draw a large circle and make a horizontal line below it for the chin. Then sketch the jawline. Draw a vertical line down the center of the face and make sure both sides of the face are symmetrical.

When drawing a face, think of it as a shape divided into parts. The horizontal eye line divides the face exactly in half. Then the lower half is divided in half, too: from eyes to the tip of the nose and from the nose to the chin. The ears sit between the eyebrow line and the tip of the nose, but if the face goes up or down the position of the ears changes.

This beginners’ step by step tutorial is for a basic male face. The proportions are different for females.

Extend the 2 lines where the inner corners of each eye are located. These guidelines will determine the nose’s width. Now that we have a box, it’s time to draw the nose. Click here to see my nose tutorial! Start with a circle, resting it anywhere between line 1 and 2. You can give your male character a more chiseled appearance by drawing the nose using very angular shapes.

I hope you guys enjoyed this tutorial on how to draw a face for beginners and found it easy to follow. If you have any questions or requests, leave it in the comments below and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.

Extend the nose’s bridge past the eyelids to define the brow bone (this step is optional). These lines should be very light! Using a 4B pencil, draw the eyebrows along the brow bone. Facial features that can accentuate masculinity are thick bushy eyebrows!

Step 3. Now that the guy looks ugly as hell, let’s erase the guidelines in an attempt to make our creation a little prettier and uncluttered.

Step 10. Almost done. Let’s add some highlights to the eyes. And give the lips shape by adding in some shading. Add shading on the teeth as well.

There are 2 ways to do this step: Ruler or no ruler. I highly recommend using the ruler method for the first couple of faces you draw. Why? Because doing this step without it can throw your proportions off like crazy. Especially if you have trouble locating the ‘center’ of an object with your eyes. The no ruler method requires you to split multiple sections of the face in half and then in half again.

A few differences between male and female face are:Men have larger faces with sharp angles that usually create chiseled jawlines and square-like heads.Only men have the Adam’s apple in their necks.Men usually have shorter eyelashes and much thicker eyebrows.

They also have angled cheeks, wider noses and wider necks.Male lips tend to curve less with a narrower upper lip. Facial hair separates males from females. Even the clean-shaven male face exhibits a faint gray line marking the beard and mustache.

Draw the upper hairline somewhere in between line A and B. It’s up to you how large you want the forehead to be. To draw a receding hairline, go above line A. When you’re drawing a man’s face, bring in hair from the sides of the head to create a solid and visible looking hairline.

Take a look at the different faces I made below using rough measurements!

Learn How to Draw a Realistic Face Step 1: Start with a circle

The Center Line and Line 2 mark the general boundaries for each ear.

Eyebrows: The inner corners of the eyebrows start right above the inner corners of the eyes. Also they have the same starting height. Use guidelines.

And that’s it. Don’t be let down if your picture does not look exactly like the reference – as long as it looks human and male, you’ve succeeded. Keep practicing. Draw, draw, draw – that is the only way to improve.

Once you’ve divided the head into these sections, you can place the features (like eyes, nose and ears) based on the guiding lines you sketched.

The manliness of a male face lies in its clean, straight lines. To draw it correctly, an artist must consider the head’s rotation, gesture and the placement of facial features.

Step 4. Give the face shape. Work around the edges, erase parts of the oval and add in the cheek bones, jaw line and hair line.

Step 11. If you know how, add shading to bring out the forehead, nose and cheeks. For the beard, try not to draw a solid outline – just do rough, random strokes. If floating heads freak you out (as they well should) add a neck.

In the second step, sketch the general placement of facial features and quickly shade the darkest areas to set the contrast.

Since we already have a female face tutorial, I thought it would be a good idea to give the men some exposure. Here’s a tutorial on how to draw a male face. The same principles apply as with the female face tutorial. I’ll note a few differences.

Learn to draw unique faces by experimenting with various eye shapes, eyebrow angles, nose lengths/widths, etc… Grab a piece of paper and draw as many faces as possible!

The jaw is angular The brows are thick and bushy The neck (if you are going to add it) is thicker and stronger An Adam’s apple is visible in most cases He has a beard

Draw a vertical line down the center of each eye. This will mark the lips’ outer boundary. Click here for my lips tutorial. If you’ve already read it, place your triangle in the small box under the nose to start. If you drew the nose well above line 2, extend the triangle so the tip touches the nose.

I used Photoshop to draw this, but you can use a pencil and paper.

In the drawing above titled “When She Sails,” I made a graphite sketch on a separate piece of paper and then transferred the outline onto my fine drawing paper to work in color. It’s crucial to work out the anatomy of the face in the sketch. I always tap the graphite lines before I begin shading in color. I work on the eyes first and then build the skin tones and everything else in the picture.

Mouth: We need the irises as a guide for the mouth. Add the irises and pupils into the eyes if you haven’t already. The corners of the mouth are right below the inner sides of the irises. Have I mentioned yet that you should use guidelines?
