Hey guys, this is Chris here, and today I'm going to show you how to draw a realistic female face. So, what I'm going to do is, I'm going to start off with the top of the forehead here, and kind of do that as an arc. I'm going to follow this down, and now, when you're looking at the contours of a real face. They don't just go straight down, they kind of curve to the features of the bone underneath. So, you're going to bring this in just a little bit. This is where the eyes and eyebrows are going to be, up here. Bring that in just a little bit out for the cheek bones, back in and the chin's down here. And do the same exact thing on the other side. And if you want to give her a smaller chin, you can also do that, it's totally up to you. Now, for the eyes, what I'm going to do, is I'm going to start off on one side. I'm going to start off on the side that's furthest away from the nose, because I'm right handed. But if you're left handed, you can, it might be easier for you to start on the other side, it's totally up to you. What I'm going to do is, kind of do an almond shape. For female eyes, you accentuate the eyelashes a little it more. So, I'm going to start at an upright angle, bring it down, and go along, back into almost an S kind of shape. And we'll do the same exact thing on the other side. Making sure I'm keeping this balanced and proportional. And then, go up like that, and bring it up like that. And for the bottom part of the eye, I'm going to connect just a little bit in from where the top line is. Bring that underneath and leave a little room for the tear duct. And the same thing on the other side. And now, you want to add a couple eyelashes here, just kind of force them out. And for the bottom eyelashes, they're going to be a lot less than the top. so, you're just going to kind of just follow a little bit along the bottom line. And they get smaller as they get closer to the tear duct. So, they're longer when you're further out, and it's shorter when you get closer to the tear duct. I'm going to draw the eyes in here. And when you're drawing eyes, a lot of times, since the top eyelashes are covering the eye. The top of the eyes are going to be a little bit darker. So, you're going to want to make those just a little bit darker on the top. For eyebrows, for girl eyebrows, you can kind of just go up, like that, and down. And the same thing on the other side. And eyebrow's going to start a little bit in from the tear duct. So, you're going to make sure you start there. And the same thing on the other side, it's just like that. And then, for the nose, I'm going to draw two little lines here for the bridge. and I'm just going to kind of draw a little nose, like that. Maybe, it kind of goes down, just like that, and two nostrils. I'm going to draw the bridge of the lip, that's up to you, if you want to draw that. A lot of people do, some people don't. If you want to add it in there, it is something that is on the human face. So, it's totally up to you. But next, I'm going to draw the lips. And for female lips, I try to make the top look a little bit more like a heart, keeping them a little bit fuller. So, I'm going to bring this in, and color it in. Because usually the top lip is going to be darker, because the light's coming down like this. And there you guys, that's basically your female lips, and your female face. So, good luck to you and stay creative.
