Male Face Tutorial by SamuraiLover13 Male Face Tutorial by SamuraiLover13
This is my first male face tutorial, requested by :icontsukyio:

I have never done a tutorial before, so I'm sorry for how basic or crappy it is... I also had to take it with my phone's camera.. :iconsweatplz:

I know you asked for hair and body tutorials, but I'm still trying to figure out how to do those...
:iconimafailureplz:

If you can't read it, here are the descriptions below:
(from top to bottom)


1) DIFFERENT BASIC EYE SHAPES
(line underneath is optional)

2) DIFFERENT PUPILS

3) DIFFERENT MOUTHS

4) I START WITH THE OUTLINE OF THE FACE...
(arrows show where I start and finish the outline)

5) AFTER FACE OUTLINE
-Draw lines for Neck and Shoulders
-Draw Eyes (add whatever details you prefer)
-Draw Nose (I didn't do any separate steps for this, sorry!)
-Draw Mouth
-Draw Hair (erase unwanted lines)
-Add Clothes (optional)
(;


(To the left of this is a random oc example)

*Remember, this is just how I go through the steps,
you do NOT have to do them like me
* (:

Drawn in 2012.

I Like the parts of where You showed Different emotions for the mouth/lip area. That can usually hard to do especially when your trying to do everything from memory of how you got everything in your head and it's not coming out on paper though.

True people don't really need clothes, clothes in artworks usualy just portray someones charater if your doing a charactr outline for a book or some thing you dont really need clothes. :highfive:

Ahaa, i find girls anatomies quite simple now, but males are just impossibleD:

SamuraiLover13 Featured By Owner May 6, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Haha, for me you would think it would make sense that girls would be easier to draw, since I am one... :XD:
However, I don't draw girls NEAR as often as guys,
I swear it's like a 1 to 100 ratio.. (~.~ ')

But, I will agree that in certain positions the male anatomy seems impossible! ):

Oh, and by the way, if you happen to look in my "Favorites" there should be a folder titled "Tutorials." I think there might be some male-anatomy tutorials in there by other great artists that you might find helpful?

Hope it helps! (:

(awe, I'm not that good.. ^^') but if I have time, I will try to put together a male anatomy tutorial~ (:
With the many tests I have coming up at school, I'm sorry but it might be about a month before I can draw it.. ):

I think you should make a female anatomy tutorial! :aww:
I feel like I always mess up something with them... usually I make their legs too short compared to the rest of their body, or their head too big! haha :XD:

Agreed! haha
One of my biggest problems is drawing the same character twice..
I've been trying to work on it lately though.

"Practice makes perfect" as they say~ (^_^ )
