Hi. I'm Rosalie and I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw wrinkles on portraits of the elderly. So, I'm going to start by drawing the face who is going to be elderly, and with children. So, I'm just drawing the outline of the face. Older faces might be a little bit more defined. You know, they have a little bit more character. So, I'm just drawing in sort of a squared bottomed face here. Put in the mouth, I'm going to put in the nose, put in some eyebrows. When you get older sometimes your eyebrows get a little bit more wild. So, put them like that. And there might be a little bit of sagging skin over the eye. You know it's just a little bit extra age on the face. Aging is cool, nothing wrong with it. It's the best possible scenario that could happen to anybody. And so, just putting in like some lines to indicate the lips. Now I'm going to put in the wrinkles. And I'm just going to put some vertical wrinkles and put a deep one there. And then some eye crows feet. This person's kind of distinguished, but they do have some lines. Just given him some character. And then we'll put some hair. This guy, he's elderly but he's still got some hair. So, I'm just going to put that in. And just put in his ears. They say your ears keep growing and so does your nose, like for your whole life. Although I don't know how true that is. But I guess you could sort of over- exaggerate the, those features, put vertical lines. And you know, just put in a collar, and you know, maybe a line there, maybe one there. And that is how I draw wrinkles on portraits of the elderly.
