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.
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.
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.
Many RFA readers have requested me to write a tutorial on how to draw faces, so here it is!
The template has the sketch of the face of a young woman. The template is simple and minimalistic in design. The artist has done a stunning job.
This is a template format that is compatible with various types of browsers. The artist captures the softness of a woman’s face very well.
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.
The Center Line and Line 2 mark the general boundaries for each ear.
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.
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.
This is a template design that is available in the form of word document. The theme is simple and minimalistic. The theme is monochromatic.
By including best face sketches in their designs, artists can communicate emotions easily and emphatically. Sketchy captions and messages can also accompany face sketches for crystal clear communication of the intended message. Designers can make use of face sketch PSD files to integrate them with other design elements for creating complex sketches that are guaranteed to make web designs, flyers and posters stand out.
This beginners’ step by step tutorial is for a basic male face. The proportions are different for females.

Face sketches are wonderful expressions of facially communicable emotions such as happiness, grief, surprise, shock, shyness, and arrogance, apart from several others. However, artists also have a lot to experiment with from face sketches with a more abstract feel, such as faces camouflaged by accompanying cracks and irregular lines on the sketch page, and zoomed in sketches focusing on face parts such as eyes, ears, hair and even the neckline.

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.
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.
