How to draw Heads by JocelynAda How to draw Heads by JocelynAda
How to draw...Heads! Download for full size.

I've been meaning to make a series of tutorials for some time now, so I thought I'd kick it off with this one about drawing heads. This is information I (stubbornly) learned along my journey, and I want to share with those who might be having trouble. The character featured is my very own Jien, whom I don't draw anywhere near enough because males are harder for me :<

I still have a long way to grow as an artist, but I always like to share what little I do know. Feel free to ask any questions and I'll try to post another soon!



Everything I learned was from Andrew Loomis's book:
