Learn How to Draw a Handsome Man’s Face from the Front View (Male) Simple Steps Drawing Lesson for Beginners
Written-Out Step by Step Drawing Instructions
(Step 1) Draw a circle (trace a bowl or use a compass if you want it to be perfect.) Draw all blue lines in this tutorial lightly, as these lines will be erased later on.
(Step 2) Draw halfway and quarter marks on the lower part of the vertical line. On the horizontal line – draw halfway marks and then extend it downwards, as I have.
(Step 3) Draw a halfway mark on top of vertical line. Draw a another circle…this time from the bottom-vertical-line dash mark. And it should be in between the 2 long lines.
(Step 4) Lightly draw lines across from halfway in between center line to half way in between the quarter lines (horizontally). Lightly draw a small circle, using the guidelines to place it and size it.
(Step 5) Draw hair lines.
(Step 6) Draw more of the hair lines & eye brow lines.
(Step 7) Now we will start drawing the actual lines. Draw a circle for eyes. Draw the bottom part of the nose circle..or at least make it darker than it already was. Draw a “v”-like shape for lip.
(Step 8) Draw a curved line over each eye. Draw a dash on each side of the nose. Draw a sideways “?”-like shape on each side of the nose.
(Step 9) Draw a sideways “?”-like shape on bottom of each eye. Draw a curved line on each side of the nose.
(Step 10) Draw a curved line for the chin and center of the lips. Draw curved lines on the eyes.
(Step 11) Draw a partial circle in each eye. Draw a line for bottom lip. Draw a “U” and “J” shape on ears.
(Step 12) Draw a curved line on both sides of the face. Draw tiny lines for eye lashes.
(Step 13) Draw sides of the face. Draw curved lines on bottom of lip.
(Step 14) Draw 2 lines for neck. Draw part between nose and mouth. Draw curved lines for bridge of nose and insides of eyes.
(Step 15) Draw curved liens inside ears. Draw an “S” shape for bottom of right ear.
(Step 16) Draw tiny lines inside eye brow guides. Finish ears.
(Step 17) We are starting to draw the hair. Notice that the hairs don’t all go in same direction. On sides of head, many of the hairs are curved lines sideways “S” and “J” shapes.
(Step 18) Now fill in the rest of the hairs. The top hairs still don’t all go in same direction but they go in a curved direction towards the back of the head.
(Step 19) Erase the guide lines carefully. Then put down a light tone with your pencil. And then smudge it a bit.
