How to Draw Manga / Anime Heads & Faces in 3/4 Three Quarters View
Making a 3/4 (three quarters view) view of the head is just a matter of re-aligning the center point. You should be thinking 3 dimensionally when working on this since it is not flat like of a front view. Here is the Tutorial on Drawing Anime / Manga Heads from the Front View.
To begin, start with a circle. (Fig 1.)
Divide the circle into 2 parts vertically. (Fig. 2) The center line of the division must be placed slightly on the left and not on the middle of the circle. This center line is where the nose and mouth will be aligned.
This head will be slightly facing towards the left.
Since the head is slightly facing to the left, the ear and cheek of the other side of the face will be visible. See fig 1.
Fig. 2. Mark the area for the nose and mouth according to the alignment of the center line.
Place the nose and the mouth in the center line and add some details needed. Always stick to the guidelines of the 3/4 view and place the parts such as the eyes to its proper place, or else the head will be out of proportion and distorted (review the head construction tutorials)
Draw in some more details as seen above.
Just another Note of Interest to Remember
Observe how the dummy head faces the front and slightly turning. Notice how the left part of the face became visible. This is what you have to consider when drawing 3/4 view of the head.
