Hi, my name is Daisy. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw a relieved face. So the gesture is a little bit like a woo, so we want open lips and really really relaxed eyebrows. So we're going to draw this head at a little bit of an angle, a round circle and then elongate it to the chin, the neck and the shoulders. So I'm going to use the nose line and the eye line to put in all the place bits and pieces. You want to see a little bit of this ear because we've got the face turned a little bit our way. It makes for a more interesting drawing when you've got it three quarters of the look. So fill in his nose. I just like really simple triangles for noses, his eyes, a couple almonds along the eye line. He's going to look up this way. Let's quickly give him some hair before we get into the real expression so I'm just going to give him some spiky hair. Okay so now to get into the actual expression, we're going to make the lips a little bit more pursed so they're like blowing out. It's always good to look in a mirror too. So even though this is going to be a guy and we're not going to draw full lips like we would a girl, we're going to draw some lines around just a semi open shape. And then an upturned line for the chin. You can make the eyes a little bit more detailed by slanting them upwards and then the eyebrows, nice and relaxed. And there we go. My name is Daisy and that's how you draw a relieved face.
