How to Draw Comic Cartoon Faces / Heads with the Oval Method of Drawing
First, draw an oval and then divide it into 4 parts as you see above. This will help you figure out where to place the character’s facial features.
Now you can draw the eyes and eyebrows in by drawing an oval on the horizontal line (line going left and right) on either side of the vertical line (up and down line). You can draw the eye brows with a squiggly line drawing motion.
Draw a guideline half way in between the middle line and the bottom of the oval. Now draw a nose in between the center line and the next guideline down. Now draw a guideline where the bottom of the eyebrows are. Now draw the ears in between the top guideline and the bottom guideline. Now add the nose and ears and the top of the dome.
Add the cartoon face’s mouth and cheeks.
Now shade in the comic figure’s hair.
Now you can ink in the face and finish off with shading and shadows like the picture above.

Nice tutorial! I’d love to use it with my 5th grade art classes. The ads make it harder but I know the ads pay for the site. REALLY like being able to “draw while I learn!”
ha ha ha cute!
Thanks for this one! Is there a similar method for the side view? and also for the rest of the body?
