 A Beginner’s Guide to Sketching Facial Features(2)

When we look at a portrait sketch, the character's facial features are the most eye-catching. The facial feature is an indispensable element in our practice of painting. It is also the main part of our in-depth portrait sketching. Then, how can the facial feature be painted to make people shine? 

How to present facial feature?

The eye is the first expression on the human face. The eye and the eyebrow are connected, so consider the change of the eyebrow when drawing the eye. Think of the eyebrows and eyes as a whole. First understand the relationship between them, and then further portray, to explain the interspersed relationship between the two corners of the eye. Strengthen the contrast between the two corners of the front and back to make the eyes more vivid

The ear is easily overlooked in painting, and the structure must be clear when painting. The shape of the ears is irregular and is located on either side of the head. The shape of the ear changes relatively little, but each person's ear still has a shape difference. We need to understand the structural characteristics of the ear, and the ear will have different perspectives as the head rotates.

The nose is at the forefront of the face. Especially for the front of the nose, be sure to open the nose and face. There are many types of noses. In the process of painting, pay attention to the structure and shape of the nose. Finally, the bridge of the nose must be sure to find the width and height of the bridge of the nose.

The mouth is the second expression organ of the face, and the change is particularly rich. This expression is produced by stretching or contracting the laughing muscles and masseter muscles. When painting the mouth, it generally emphasizes the middle suture line of the mouth, and clearly defines the interspersed relationship of the corners of the mouth. Each model has different characteristics and different expressions, and some of the mouths are overhanging, and some of the mouths are upwards. Pay attention to their characteristics when painting.
