Female Face Portrait Drawing Tutorial by Phobos-Romulus Female Face Portrait Drawing Tutorial by Phobos-Romulus
A tutorial I whipped up centering around my 3 recently submitted portraits. I've always liked drawing portraits, so I thought I'd make a tutorial to help others out with the activity.

Any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

Please excuse any typos. I'm usually good about this sort of thing, but when there's a lot of text, it sometimes slips under my radar.

Thanks for making this, it really helped, especially the part with the hair!! Any other tips you can give me for the hair please?

I'd look at what Andrew Loomis has to say about hair.

But I also remember this post by cartoonist John Kricfalusi(ren and stimpy) that seemed quite helpful about structure.

Ok just came up with a question for you: how would you deal with blond eyebrows? (something i'm kinda stuck with at moment)

Hmm, I think I usually just make them dark anyway. Eyebrows are usually darker compared to rest of the hair.

You don't have to make them black or anything, but a few shades darker than the rest of hair usually works.

Cool i'll try that - makes sense ;) - i kinda stupidly had drawn an ink outline of the eyebrows and colored it in but that was not working, thanks for taking the time and answering!

Funny a lot - a whole lot - of artist sort of try to avoid/downplay the nose when drawing girls but you really define it - and it works! Nice!
