Anonymous said: cries how do you get people's head shapes so perfect
AHHH okay sooooo. THis is in no way shape or form a legit tutorial on how to draw different headshapes
But more of just a break down of how I simplify the complicated shapes that are heads and make them more cartoony or whatever
FEATURING THE LADS because all three of them have pretty unique head shapes that are pretty fun to draw!
So starting with Ray! (sorry if you can’t read the words i’ll explain them anyways tho)
for Ray (who I found to be probably the most fun to draw) has fairly round features. a round chin, some pretty pronounced cheeks (smiling or not) and kind of a big forehead (sorry ray)
looking at another angle again you can see how his face is kind of divided into two seperate round shapes. one being from cheeks to chin the other being from eyebrows to forehead.
soooo with that knowledge I kind of just went with two circles as his basic face shape
#1 is basically how I start drawing all my heads. sometimes I do the cross hair (plus sign) in the middle of the circle. But for ray since I want to kind of exaggerate his forehead, the first circle is going to act as his forehead and so I draw the cross hair right in between the two circles ( #2). the area where the two circles meet and make that indent will act as definition for his cheeks
aaannd with some movie magic I ad detailll. (excuse the messiness)
Buuut yea, I pretty much just define his face shape so it actually looks like a face and not just two circles on top of each other. so for example give him more of a chin (which you can’t actually see here that well but michael is a better example) make the indents on the side of his face less drastic. ears of course. and for his hair I kind of give him a hairline that’s pretty far up so I can exaggerate that lovely forehead of his
Now i’m not going to go too deeply into facial features and how I do that since i’m just touching on the face shape for this one. But generally for facial features I do the same as I do for the headshape. I find defining features (his eyebrows and nose and forehead for example) and exaggerate it in a way that makes him more identifiable when drawn.
And for the rest of the Lads it’s pretty much the same steps!
Give their face a simple shape based off of observations of their general facial featuers (i.e long jaw. hidden/small forehead. general oval shape)
then take that simple shape you noticed and use it as the base of your
drawing. Ad in the definition/details and you got a face!
and now Michael!
this picutre’s kinda meh but it still gets the point across lol. For Michael I pretty much just ad a square to the bottom of the circle. and I like to make that square a little bit longer than the circle to make room for his face plus his forhead gets covered up by his hair so it’s kind of small.
I hope that helped get some sort of insight to how I draw headshapes, or just how I draw some of the achievement hunters in general!
you can see why I don’t really do a lot of these. they’re kind of all over the place and, i’m not the best with explaining. But I felt like it was time I tried giving a legit answer lolol
