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.

Up top didn't you mean to say a 5 eye diameter not radius? Or am I mistaken

I don't think I mentioned either of those words, but diameter would right.

"The cranium is the sphere, with a 5 eye radius..." :P

Illustrators sure had to know their stuff extremely well back in those days. Wish that were still true.

No problem, my pleasure!

No doubt about that, look at old tv cartoons like He-Man and She-Ra, which looked like it took months to draw. Cartoons now-a-days such as Adventure Time (though I do like the show a bit) are poorly drawn, and it doesn't look like it takes very long to draw them.... I don't understand why that's happening....

I think production values are better now, but things were drawn much better back then. Adventure Time's animation is much nicer than He-Man, but the style, while effective, is a bit too simple for my liking.

If you wanna see something extremely impressive, look at the workprint version of Richard Williams' Thief and the Cobbler.

Well, aren't most older shows like that; look at Looney Tunes for example (the cartoons, not the show)...

I actually saw that, though it kind of had a boring plot line so I blocked it out. I did see the a good 50% of it though... I absolutely adored the artwork. It's obvious that a lot of work was put into it...
