Hi, my name is Daisy. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw face structures. So I'm just going to show you the simple basic face. So we'll draw a circle and then follow down kind of creating an oval to make the chin and the neck and shoulders would come out below. So that's our basic face shape and you draw a line down the center and a line almost in the middle but probably about closer to a third up for the eye line. These are going to help you put the features on. So the ears always sit at the bottom of the eye line. The eyes go through it and the nose comes out from the nose line. Now it doesn't matter what shape face you do, if it's a square face, a round face which I can show you in a second, you always put your features wherever you put the nose and the eye line. It really helps. The lip comes out from the center of the nose line and a little line underneath for where the chin is, eyebrows, really simple lines that extend from the nose line so either side comes out. And you put your hair wherever you like depending on the hairstyle. Now if we're going to do a round head, it's a bit more cartoony let's have it look a little bit different to a realistic face, round eyes and then an eye line, big ears coming out from beneath the eye line, a big pointed nose from the nose line and then eyebrows coming out from where the nose is. And this guy can have crazy hair so he looks a bit funny. And there we go. My name is Daisy and that's how you draw face structures.
