A Word From the Author:

Although I have had an affinity for drawing since the age of four, I did not become accomplished until much later in life. I never saw another person draw well until I reached art school and even then, it was limited to brief glances over someone's shoulder. Drawing instruction in those days was more verbal that visual.

After four years of art school, I was able to get work as a commercial artist. It was only then that I began to get the type of hands-on direction I needed to improve my drawing skills. Without proper instruction, natural talent will struggle and all too often fade, giving way to other pressures in life. But my opportunity to work closesly with professional artists and receve personal demonstrations made all the difference in the quality of my own work. — Grant Fuller

Facial Anatomy Simplified
Use this simplified version of facial anatomy to aid in establishing good proportions.

  • The eyes are halfway between the top of the head and the chin.
  • The center of the upper lip is halfway between the eyes and the chin.
  • The width of the mouth is the same as the distance between the pupils.
  • A horizontal like drawin through the center of the eyes should be parallel to a line drawn through the center of the mouth. Otherwise the face will be twited and distorted.
Use this as a norm, and look for variations when drawing a specific portrait. For example, is your subject's nose longer than the average or shorter? Is the mouth wider or narrow?
