Hi, I'm Rosalie and I'm an artist, and I'm going to show you how to draw side views of faces with guidelines. So guidelines would just be like some lines that you would use to guide you to draw the thing that you're drawing which is in this case the side view of a face. So I just drew like a sort of an ovally circle to be the front of the skull and everything and you can then draw like a line here and I think there's a line here and then you can draw like that. So that's the skull in there, what you're basically drawing is the skull and then you can bring it around and draw the nose and the lips and then the chin. You could put in the nostril and the eye. There's the eyelid and the eyebrow and then you can put, oh there's an ear here, right where that, sort of where that line is and then the, you can draw in the curving from the chin to the front of the neck and then like that and I'm going to put the hair covering some of it. I'm just coloring it in really roughly, it's just there to be part of this side view face and so that is how I draw a face side view with guidelines.
