Head and Face: 3/4 View

Today I'm giving you the basic drawing tutorial for (still head and face) 3/4 view. This view is drawn most often in your sketch or comic. If you are getting used to draw head and face from front and side view, I bet this technique will not turn into problem for you because basically it is the "fusion" of the other two views.

To start off the tutorial, I will begin by making a so-called circle. This time the vertical line which states the direction of the head's view is slightly modified by shifting its position a little bit to the left (or right - in accordance with the viewpoint that want to be drawn) and make it slightly curved.

...Ear on the right side of the circle. When you are finished, the next step is to draw a more detailed on the character's face by adding eyes, nose, mouth and ears.

with the aid of the sketch line, we can simply add the hair and the more detail on the character's head with your desire, while improving the various forms that is felt awkward or inappropriate at the end of the process.

And that would wrap the tutorial. I would like to emphasize that this tutorial is not intended to be used as the standard in the drawing. Everyone has their own uniqueness and style in drawing their own characters.
