Drawing faces can be hard - so here's a handy Art Attack to help you!
You will need:
|Drawing faces can be very tricky - especially from the side. All those bits going in and out - forehead, nose, lips, chin and so on.|
Here's a handy Art Attack tip to remember - ten zig zags!
Here you can see Neil has drawn the basic outline of a face from the side, using only ten zig zag lines.
|Add in an eye, and you have the makings of a picture.|
|Smooth out the zig zag lines and you'll start to see a realistic face emerge.|
|Add in an eye, eyebrow and nostril...|
|...and then add in the back of the head, neck and hair.|
|To draw a girl's face, use the same idea - still ten zig zags, but less jagged.|
|Round them off, and then add in the rest of the head, neck and hair.|
|If you do them slightly differently each time, you'll easily get different people...|
|...with different features.|
Each of these was drawn with ten zig zags.
