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 the Andrew loomis tip, there is really some great material, and a nice tutorial, hard to find good face tutorials that don't drift into an anime-like style.

Yeah, anime has its merits, but I'd rather learn from more classical sources first. Those that are heavily into the anime style should create a strong base skillset based on knowledge of classic practices and let that knowledge enhance their anime drawing. 

When you start the other way around, you don't have a strong foundation, which is why so many anime artists lack structure.

Well, in my case, it was more that I like the classical or more realistic style a lot, but it has gotten less common, or at least that's what it sometimes seems to me.

I was just pointing that to anime styled artists in general.

Yeah, I've almost always been inclined toward the classical realistic style. There's lots of awesome styles to be found in European comics as well.

I'd always would recommend the older "Heavy Metal Magazin" issues for that. It's a good mixture of some of the best styles I've ever seen.

Definitely the older issues. 

There's lots of great dutch comic artists that were never featured in Heavy Metal that are spectacular draftsmen.

Yeah, like Dick Matena, Henk Kuijpers, Theo van den Boogaard, Joost Swarte, to name a few of my favorites.

Just gonna point out that you're wrong about lips. The upper lip can be thicker and larger than the lower one.

More often than not, they tend to be thinner. This is, like my other tutorials, more based on averages and classic artistic aesthetics. 

But yeah, I have noticed that, thanks for the suggestion!
