Hey guys, my name is Chris and today I'm going to be teaching you how to draw a mermaid face. So, the way you'd start off is we're going to draw the outline of his face, which is basically almost like an oval. But you're going to have the chin be a little bit thinner at the bottom. So, you could tell that it's kind of like the forehead and the chin at the bottom here. Then we're going to start with the eyes, which basically are kind of like two ovals as well. But you're going to give them a little bit of a dip so that you can leave room for the eyelashes and the corner of the eye, which is very important. At the bottom, you're going to be doing another oval like a, almost a completion, just to fill out the bottom there. In the middle of course is the pupil. So, you're going to draw just a little guy but you're going to leave a little bit of room on the side, almost like a half moon, just so you can add a little highlight in there as the light's reflecting off the eyes. On the outside you got the cornea. There we go. And you want to throw in the eyelashes on the side. OK. And then I'm thinking a little bit of a little more designer like for the eyebrows since she is a mermaid. So, make it almost like a little bit of a wave across the top. And then we're going to do, I'm thinking of giving her a little bit of a smirk here. So, you're going to do almost on the side, just make her lips almost like it's a two wave there. Fill it out a little bit on the bottom and then throw in her nose, which is going to be a little bit of a, almost a dash. Doing a lot of waves here. She is a mermaid. Give her maybe a little bit of a, a little bit under the eyes there and part of her nose. Now, we're going to throw in a little bit of a green because she's a mermaid. So, maybe fill out her lips a little bit and her eyebrows. All right. And now we're going to throw in the hair. Which I think I'm going to be doing an orange marker actually. And this is just going to be really, really wavy. Kind of go down like that, like she's almost under the water. And you want to make sure it goes around the back here to make it look like she's kind of swimming in a direction. Maybe throw in a little bit of a seashell in her hair, which is almost like you draw a bowl shape and then a couple of wavy lines at the top and complete it like that. And maybe throw in a little seaweed in her hair. Just making some more wavy lines with green. All right guys. And that is how you draw a mermaid face.
