Hi, my name is Daisy, I'm an artist, and I'm going to show you how to draw a male head. So we're going to start with the basic shape, which is a circle for the top of the head, and then I'm going to make my male, kind of squared jawed, so it makes it look a lot more masculine than a female. Bring it across, kind of rounded, we don't want any straight lines, and that's his basic head shape. Another difference with guys, is that their necks are a little bit wider than girls, so let's give him a nice wide neck and big broad shoulders, so that's our basic shape. I'm going to put in a line down the center and a line across this way where the eyes would be, it gives us an idea of where everything fits. Now the ears, kind of like opposite c-shapes, and the top of them is always at the bottom of the eye-line, a couple of almond shapes for the eyes, right through the middle of the eye-line, then use the nose-line to draw, kind of triangular nose. You can start getting rid of all the other lines, because we don't really need them, they're just to help us construct him, use this same nose-line down here to give him placement for his mouth, I'm just going to make a little line, then a curved line underneath for the bottom of his lip, if you want a bit more detail, you can give him a bit more of a chin right under the lip-line. Inside his eyes draw a couple of circles, and you can fill them in, a couple of lines in his ears, kind of like little "J's". And then for his hair, I'm just going to do a part, and a big curve line around here, the parts go to the ears, another big curve, kind of a semi-circle here, and some wisp behind, underneath his ears. And there we go. My name is Daisy, and that's how you draw male head.
