Description: Hey everyone, here's a tutorial on how to go about drawing character faces realistically. This is how I go about building character portraits from scratch. Get your pencils and paper ready!
Description: I decided to do my final pre-sketch using brush and ink just because it is more convenient for me. I used this step to finalize the appearance of my characters and roughly plan out my shading. It helps to have an idea of where your drawing might go before getting started.
Description: Finish up the drawing by going over the details again. This is where I used a 3B pencil to darken my shading in places where my F pencil just wasn't cutting it. That's an example of a female character, now let's move on to a male one.
Description: Finish up the drawing by adding a few more layers of shading and working on the details some more. I chose to keep my background pretty simple but you can do whatever you feel works best with yours. Hopefully you now have a better idea as to how to go about making your original characters more realistic. Just remember to have fun with it and practice! As always comment's and questions are more than welcome. I'm looking to do more tutorials like this in the future so let me know what I need to add or change!
