What are the drawing techniques?

For this exercise you will draw 3 characters: A, B, and C.

Start with B (I’m calling her B.)

The first thing you draw is the nose of A.

Draw the eyes of A on the left and on the right. (You may want to fill these in or leave them red, white, black, or white-on-white.)

Draw a straight line from the nose of B to the hair line of A.

Keep the eyes and the hair lines identical. And make the other lines straight.

You should see that the hair line of B is shorter than the nose of A.

So draw the nose of B on top of A.

Draw the nose of B on the backside of A and draw the top of A on top of B.

Draw a line from B’s hair line to the bottom of A’s hair line. That’s the upper line. Draw a line from B’s hair line to the top of A’s hair line. Again, repeat and see how they connect.

You should see that the upper line of A is longer than the lower line of B.

What is the bottom line?


Draw a line from the hair line on the lower line of A to the bottom of B’s hair line. So the line on the right is the bottom. Now draw the hairline in that direction and connect it to the lower line of B.

You should see that the bottom line of A is shorter than the upper line of B.

What’s up with A’s eye and the eyebrows? Can you see where I drew the eyebrows? I’m not sure. Here’s where I draw them now, and where they are today.

The eyebrows are on the backside of B. This makes sense right? They don’t look like they belong there. They should go on the backside (the side facing B). But I draw them both now.

What do you put right before A’s eye? Here I draw one more line from B’s hair line to the bottom of the eye. I’m drawing this here for reference. And on the backside of A at the same time I draw the hair line that connects the bottom of A’s eye to the upper eyelid.

Do you get it?

Here’s how I did it.

1) B

2) Pause.
