How To Draw The Head in Side View

How To Draw The Head in Side View

Learning how to draw the head in different directions is a part of the fundamental lessons when learning how to draw and paint portraits. Of course, drawing a head in front of view is nice, but if you are looking to go even further in creating portraits, drawing the head in different directions is a great way to do that.

Alright, let’s go ahead and get into this lesson.

Start with a circle ( or something close to it) and then add another circle inside of the bigger one.

You will then want to divide the circle into fourths as I have done below:

Draw the head in side view step by step

Draw a line down from the outer edge of the bigger circle. Draw a line across until it meets the lower vertical line.

Map out where you will add the features. Add two lines along the right horizontal line this will be where you place the eyebrow.

To add the nose you will draw a line from the left eyebrow line marker and draw downward until it connects to the larger triangle. You should have created a smaller triangle.

Add a line from the tip of the nose to the chin (lower angle of the face) to make sure the nose, lips, and chin will be proportionate from each other.

Now it’s time for the fun part. This is the step you can get creative and draw out the nose, chin, and lips.

Here is a quick overview of using shapes to create the head in the side view.

With a little bit of practice, you’ll be able to draw the head in the side view in no time. If you liked this tutorial please be sure to like, share, and comment on this tutorial along with the video and graphics.

ADOBE CREATIVE CLOUD

Canva is a great tool to get you started when it comes to DIYing your graphics and logos but it can only take you so far.  If you are looking into creating logos as a side hustle, you will need to invest in tools that will produce graphics for your clients that are a lot more forgiving and also scalable.  No one wants a pixelated logo.

Here is where Adobe Creative Cloud comes into play.  Adobe has a wide variety of programs that ranges from document editing, photo manipulation, animation, video eding and illustrations.

If you are interested in starting a freelance creative business that includes logo designs, one thing to consider is that scalability.  Basically if a client is needing to put their logo on printing material you want to make sure that regardless of the size of the print the logo won’t become pixelated.  Adobe Illustrator is a great program to use for logo and helps solve this problem.

If you are a photographer and need to manipulate or enhance photos, Photoshop and Lightroom are great programs to use.

Into video editing? Adobe Premiere and After Effects will provide you with the tools needed to make some great videos and effects.
