In this sketching guide, you will learn how to draw a face easily. At first glance, it is extremely difficult to draw faces, but this is only at first glance because it is easy if you try to practice. We are happy to help you with this, because drawing a face according to our tutorial will be easy, but this ease will not mean that you will draw a cartoon face. This human face is quite realistic, as the proportions of the face are not exaggerated as in cartoons.
If you want to draw a cartoon character and a face, then we recommend trying to draw a cartoonish Superman, who was in the cartoons. You will understand the difference, which will clearly make you understand how cartoon faces are drawn and how sketches of non-cartoonish and more realistic human faces are made.

How to Draw a Face
- Sketch the base.
First, you need to sketch out all the guidelines that will help you sketch the face in proportion.
- Vertical guideline.
Depict the vertical line exactly in the center of the circle, with the help of which you will be guided in drawing the nose and other parts of the face.

Now we move on to drawing parts of the face, and start with the lines of the person’s cheeks.
- Draw the jaw and chin.
Draw the person’s jaw and chin using symmetrical curved lines.

In this step, you can already erase the guiding straight lines from the sketch, and after that draw the person’s hair.

Erase the extra line from the person’s head, and then check the whole drawing. If everything is correct, then proceed to the next step.
