Quick Facial Anatomy Tips by Smirtouille Quick Facial Anatomy Tips by Smirtouille
Ok this is nothing greatly detailed. I was doodling skulls and stuff and this is more like a plan for a more polished tutorial.
Some basic things on facial anatomy and how I proceed to sketch a face and detail it, what I start with, what defines what, etc.
Of course a face is something very complex, it can be described with tons of words and drawings and examples, as I didn't do here.

Thank you for this post. I took it to my faves as reference and because it shows how much impact the zygomatic has on the overall appearance of a character.

Thank you for pointing that out! Skulls are more boxy than those "How to Draw..." books would have you believe. I have seen comic artists who do this as well! Drives me nuts! I always messed up when I used spheres. So I combined them with a box to make a series of ovals. Which is how I like to keep my characters. Sure, it makes them rather lanky, but whatever.

lol, yeah I skipped many many things. They're still sketches though, I wouldn't render them that way but the tips are not about the rendering. : )

Like Einstein said "If you can't explain it simply, it means that you don't understand it well enough" and you explained it rather simply.

Thanks for the tip :)

This is great for face/head/skull study, I'm sure this will help a lot with drawing heads/faces/skulls from different angels.
