Hey guys, this is Chris and today I'm going to show you how to draw the outline of person's profile. So what you're going to want to do is when you're starting off with a profile view, you're going to start off with a forehead and I'm going to start that going down just like a little bit of an arc, once it gets to the eyebrow you have the bone and the features kind of go in a little bit and then right after you draw like a little bit of a, a swooping line you come out with the nose here and bring that down just to about there so it's about, about the same length as the, the forehead and bring it in and then once you have it in a little bit just, just before you get to the area of the forehead but not too far out you got to make sure that it's very, very even. You bring in for the top lip here and then another line in for the top lip, a line out for the bottom lip and then it kind of swoops down just a little bit right underneath the, the bottom lip there. Bring that down then you got your chin here and you can fill it up actually. Alright, then if you want to do some eyes you can put them right there, finish up the lip, usually the top lip is a little bit more darker than the, the bottom lip. If you want to maybe make a, somebody who's a child you can also do it like this, start with the forehead, bring it down and then do the nose a little bit smaller with more of an upward angle and the lips and a smaller chin. There you go guys, that's how you draw the profile view of a person so good luck and stay creative.
