1. Faces Promo : Theo Guys, I'm Ed and I'm the father. And this is how to draw for kids. Let's take a look inside. Is your kids sitting at home with nothing to do watching way too much TV? Well, maybe it's time to get them doing something a little bit more productive. In this course, we will review how to understand and use basic shapes and how to apply those basic shapes. When we're drawing faces, we'll teach you how to draw a cartoon style faces, comic book style faces and even those that are a little bit more realistic. We're even throwing in some caricature work. Okay, so are you ready? Get rolling on this course. Let's do it. Okay, listen, she's gone, and now I can give a message just to the parents. This course was made just for kids in mind because as a parent, I know that there's a lot of content out there. A lot of channels that, you know, have some beard. Vida Rex this'll course its content, its creators. Everything is geared towards Children and young learners, so you don't have to worry. When you sit your child down in front of this video. It's custom made. Okay, so that's just between us. Don't tell the kids 2. Faces Intro: Hey, guys, I'm Ed and I'm the father. And this is how to draw faces for kids, this sort of thing. That what it was like You're thinking. Okay, listen, she's teaching me now, but I'm gonna actually we're both gonna help teach you how to draw faces. What are we gonna use? Some basic shapes. Everything from squares, ovals. All those basics that you learned in our how to draw basics for kids. We're gonna take that, grow it and help you design some cool looking faces. Sometimes it might look a little cartoony, little Disneyesque, and sometimes they'll be more realistic. We're gonna show you how to draw both stops. Do you want to do this right? Fees is 3. Faces Refresher: Hey, guys, listen, Before we get into this course, I think it's really important that we talk about something that will help you as you move forward. Okay? So if you've taken our how to draw basics for kids, you already know about this. So hold on. Where's the there? Yeah, How to draw basics for kids. Well, we do in that courses. We talk about circumference lines around spheres. There's mouthful there, right? But really, it's important to know. OK, so I'm gonna help you with a little visual. OK, so here's a sphere. See if I bring it closer, right? You can kind of see it. Okay. It looks like we got a straight line up and down, right? That's how it looks. But what happens as soon as I turn it? It doesn't look us straight anymore. Not only does it just not say straight off to the side, but starts to curve because you can see these are all going along the curve of the spirit. You have to realize that that when we start drawing on shapes, we have toe give them form, and by following the contours of that form, don't really help us in understanding that this is a three D shape so we can do it with fears. It helps. You couldn't see. Like you're gonna practice a lot of doing this, OK? Or we can do it with maybe not perfect spheres like my cake. Okay, so the egg is the same thing. A zai start to turn it. You could see it start to bend these lines start toe. Look at how they're bending over top. Right. Okay, So this is what we're gonna practice just a little bit before we get into the face. Course, I think this is important. So let's spend some time on it. Okay, guys, So let's get into this a little bit. Let's talk about how we're gonna draw a circle and then the circumference of right we know how to draw circles. Basically, You know, hopefully you practicing in your warm ups and stuff again so you can on your sheet, you know, draw. You know, three or four circles. I'm guessing. You know, if you want to practice, eventually you're gonna draw, like 100 of them or whatever. You're gonna have tons of sheets filled up with them. But, you know Let's start slow. Okay, So how do we draw that circumference line? Well, the easiest wanted. Just straight down the middle. Right. But as we start to rotate it well, what happens? This this one that was down the middle here is starting to bend. We're going to see it starts still at the same point, but starts to bend around. Okay, So why don't I just continue it this way Here? We're going to start at that same point, but it's going to start toe bend around the circle more. Okay, Still starting at that same point trip, and we can move it over just a little bit here. And then, you know, we're going to see how it almost gonna disappear off of the sphere. Right? We could do the same thing going up, you know? Why don't we do that? Just show how this is the start, right? That start central line would be right here. It's going to start toe bend upwards as we start to rotate that ball upwards, right. It's gonna bend even more, and it's gonna bend even more. Okay, So what I'd like you to do is just practice this kind of stuff. First using these kind of general spheres and then start to change shapes. What if we have? It's a few ovals, right? You know, the first oval is here. Then it would start to bend like this. You know that it starts to bend even mawr, that type of thing. Um, yet one more when we do it all the way, have it coming almost to the end. Right? So there's our center circumference line, right? What about if we do with spheres? You know, Spears air basically like these. Sorry. Not spheres these tubes that we're gonna use. Okay, so we'll go along and draw some of these. He's kind of tubes, right? User? The ugliest tubes I think I've ever drawn. And this too. This is gonna be different than because these tubes are, you know, long this way, right? So as they start toe rotate, the only thing that's gonna change is it's a rotating. So that that center this line, that's whatever is drawn on their right. Like, let's say it's like, this is just gonna come off to the side is going to stay straight on. That curve is going to stay there when this starts to change, really is when we start toe, turn this these tubes even Mawr, right? Like, let's say it's turning even more so this 1 may say straight, but this will start to have that bigger turn. So would you want to do is grab some objects around you found? No, let's say on ugly pair Um, maybe an apple. You know, Uh, something irregular even like my kids got. I'm looking over on the side here, and she's got this kind of stuffed being stuffy, right? It's got two little feet, little feet on the other side. And then what happens when we start to rotate these things? Right, This pair, let's say the bottom comes up so the bottom will be here, and then the top is barely showing a little bit. Well, you know, how did these lines normally go with? This line is like this. Now, this line is gonna becoming more like this, right? If this line is coming around and coming this way Well, now it's maybe coming and coming this way. Does that make sense? Right. So what you want to do is look around. You see if you can grab some some general objects and look at how the how lines might work on it, right? How might it change if you start Teoh Really change the angle you're looking at, right? This would now come much lower than it is like this. If I'm looking at it straight, a mug might look something like this. And the center center Circumference lines cut center. Right. Okay, so this was just a little warm up before we get into the faces. Because once we get in our faces Geez, You know, we're worried about facial features like noses and eyes and all those kind of things. And I'm hoping you really have this center line circumference down Pat. You should have studied it in the how to drop basics for kids. But if you haven't, hopefully this is a good warm up for you. Alright, guys, let's get into it. Oh, 4. Faces1: Hey, guys, here we are with our first unit in how to draw faces. Joey, you ready to roll? I can sense the enthusiasm. Okay, so we've got this. Ah, nameless dude in front of us. Do we want to give him a name? No. Let's keep him. They wanted even Shaggy. Okay, Okay. We're going with Shaggy. Okay, Listen, like Shaggy, uh, I don't know. He just looks kind of dopey, right? Kind out of it and stuff. I got ripped, but you know, something that we're gonna look at before we look at all these little features on him is gonna be the shapes, right? This is what we're looking for. And what shape do you think his head is in? Basically, you know, like, what's it looking like to you? What's what's this mean? Had looking like and all wool? Yeah, he's got an oval shape, right? You know, if we we look around it and stuff, right, we can see this kind of big oval. Um, you know, I wouldn't even call it an egg so much as an oval. You know, in a kind of rounds, a little bit more of the bottom or something right. He's just got a straight on over. Right, Okay. And so, looking at this oval, if we want to weaken, bring it off to the side here. We could kind of replicate it, right? So weaken, you know, have the top, have the bottom roughly, and so we can keep the same size, and we're just gonna do this oval off to the side. Okay? Can you do that, too? Yeah. Yeah, Okay. Doesn't have to be perfect. You know, we're not kind of match it exactly right. The thing with the overall, though, is we're gonna try to find some circumference lines, right? Some some keyed lines that will help us find where all the features a rat. Okay, so the 1st 1 is, Let's go with the center line down the middle. That's the easiest one to find. Okay, so we're gonna do it on both of them. At least I am. You can do it off to the side if you want. It's OK. So here's the center line down the middle, right? Everything is we want tohave symmetry. Do you know what symmetry is? Means? Same on each. That's right. Yeah. We wanna have it you know, here's on the left. Here is the right. We want to have a kind of generally equal, unless we're trying not to have it the same. Okay, so now we've got this this line here for the eyes. Right? And we can kind of have it off to the side. Here, Um, this is gonna be where it gets weird. Is we can actually use this same marker on this guy for the nose and the mouth. The mouth can kind of start off to the side, and the nose can kind of start there. Okay, so on this guy we're looking at about a little above halfway, is where the eyes are gonna be, right? And then about half of that is gonna be the mouth and the nose. He's cartoony, right? He's not very realistic. OK, so when we start to get into more realistic faces were gonna be a little bit more strict when we come to this. But for right now, you know, we get to play a little bit. Okay? So why don't we start adding in a few details here? Right? The eyes we could have we could follow this nice little line and then cup it below. And that's his eyes right now. Now they look kind of evil, actually. And you know what I'm noticing? I'm not really on center for this, you know, I'm kind of off a little bit. I wanna have it so that they're both the same space apart from this center line. Okay, so this one's about here, so I want to have that about the same. That's something toe Pay attention to their Okay, that their space from one side of the center line to the other side is pretty darn close. If we zoom in here, we can see, you know, this one's coming off this side. This one's coming off this side, and if I measure its close, right, Okay. But he doesn't have these evil eyes, you know, even if I want to fill in this part right now, OK, now we start to look a little a little goofy, right? But what's going to give him this overall look off this sleepy eyes is to show that his actual eyes are more like this. And so if I use that as a circle for the eyes, I can come up and do that kind of top of the I live, right? Yeah. OK, there we go. So now I've just got a pair of sleepy, floaty eyes, and it actually looks sleepy and floating. Okay. Now, where also my gonna go? Maybe from up top here, I can start the eyebrows. And again, I'm gonna kind of look and see while I want to kind of line them up. So today, they're matching a little equally from side to side. Okay, I could have these eyebrows shooting down this way, right? Shooting down the other side. Maybe a little bit past the I. There we go. That looks pretty decent. Yeah, OK, how's yours looking so far? Good. You know, it's it's interesting because I think you've spaced your eyes quite wide apart. So that's gonna give the character a little bit of a different look than mine might. Well, like he has a really thick knows. Yeah, you know what? I think I almost put my two close together, So we're going to see how this turns up here. Next thing I want to do is have this kind of let's do this kind of cut for his nose down in the bottom, and we're gonna have to round it as it comes up. And what we're aiming for is this eyebrow, right. We're gonna come like this so we can come from the top. We can come from the bottom. It's really which way you feel comfortable with with your drawing. Okay. And once we kind of rough it in, we can We can come in and darken up the lines a little bit there. Looking good. Yeah, you get now, you know, here's the eyebrows, but the muscle on top of the eyebrow, We're gonna bump a little bit like this. It's gonna come into his Beanie, right? His little captain he's wearing here. Okay, so this cap, do we want to do the capital? You know what I want to stick with the face for right now, I'm gonna use this marker off the nose line, nose and mouth, right. And do these little ticks for for the mouth where I wanted to start. How you want to do this? You know, you can follow it almost exactly where he's doing this. This smile, right? You can make it bigger if you want or something. It's really up to you. You know, it's it's I'm gonna kind of follow it along the same lines. But if you want to do it a little bit different, go for it. You know, nothing wrong with getting a little bit creative, right? Okay. And then he's got these teeth coming coming down, right. Perfect. Below this part of the mouth you're gonna find he's gonna lip hang in here. Yeah. What is that? The line underneath that is the lip. That's the That's the hang of the lip. Here's the mouth. This is the kind of the top of the lip. If we're thing of this way down here is the I thought like underneath the teeth was No, no, he hears Thea, you know, if I really want to, What I can do is kind of shade this in. Yeah, and I kind of shows that that's the inside of the mouth. And then, you know, here's his teeth, that kind of thing. So that kind of helps to give some understanding what's happening. It makes sense, right? Well, yeah, you're shaded. Looks really good cold. And if you want to, you can add like a little dimple in his chin or something like that. And what we're gonna do is somewhere around the eyebrow here. We're gonna start to draw the face, the outline of the face here. OK, so we're going to kind of bring it nicely. Smooth it in, You know, light at first. As you're trying to get the nice sweep, you're following your initial oval, right? And as you go over a few times, you can kind of darken it up, rounded out and make sure it's coming the way you want it to, right? Okay. Good stuff. And then from below here, depending how thick you want it. Actually. Want to give him a little bit of a skinnier neck? Have the net coming out that way. Okay. Yeah, He's looking good. Obviously. Very cartoony. Very goofy looking, right. That's exactly what I want. Okay. From the top here, we're going to start to draw the beanie. This is the first flap that comes over top. You know, this is the full that's that's basically visible from the front. Then you're gonna get different folds as it wraps around the head a little bit. You know, it's kind of wrapping this way around. You can wrap it around. Even mawr. You know, you can add a bunch of folds in here, however you want to do it. Okay, Um, it can look a little bit too goofy. I think I've went to a little bit too high with it at this point, so I might actually erase it. I want to lower it. I want it like it's not sitting on top of his head so much. What I want is it's more flopping off to this side, right? More like that, That type of thing. There you go. So it's going backwards and kind of flopping back. Right? And that's how we get that look with these ridges in here. Okay. What are we missing? A little bit of hair. Uh, you're going too fast. Oh, sorry. You know what? Actually, even for the students at home, if I'm ever going too fast, what's the best thing to do? Pause it, pause it. That's what's awesome about learning on these videos, right? Is that you know, if the instructors going too fast or you didn't catch something, all you have to do is pause. Maybe rewind just a little bit and played again right in a classroom. You can't really tell the teacher to pause. And you could try. How would that go over? Very well. Well, depending on the teacher, depending on the teacher, right? Yeah, definitely. But if we're going too fast in this video, just pause it, take a breath and do it at your own speed. Okay? And if it's if it's something that I said that you didn't quite catch well, again, you don't just rewind and watch it again. Okay? So what we're gonna do is start to add a little bit of hair down below here while Joey tries to catch up. And then we can add some little whiskers, some ugly little whiskers to his chin. Okay, That's not bad. That's actually pretty decent. It's It's how I wanted it to look right. Um, I think that what I'm gonna do is kind of just go around as Joey's still drawing on hers and add a little bit of an outline to it. This is called Hey, Lowing. Where we added on outline to the to the overall form and stuff for, um, it especially looks good in this cartoonish type of character. right and hate. If you can't keep up with the speed, don't worry about it, right? Just hit that pause button and you catch up. Here we go. This halo wing is looking OK. I kind of sketched it all really light. What I might do if this was something I wanted to keep his do it a little bit more, you know, Had in some darker lines to it. Give it a little bit more of a definite line. Here we go. You don't. Oh, perfect. Perfect. Perfect. Okay, so I'm gonna back out of mine. I think I did the exact thing I wanted to do. I gave him that sleepy, slim vibe, right This oval look. And I think it worked out really well. It's basically, um, other than the nose being a little bit narrower and the eyes being a little bit closer. It's exactly what I wanted. Ah. What do you think, Joyce? How does your turn up looks pretty good? Yeah, he's cool looking. Actually, he looks like a chill guy. Yeah, he does. And that's the thing. You know, even though we changed a couple little things, um, it ended up giving the same vibe that we wanted any mistakes or any things that slips you up. Do you think the eyebrow like muscle is really difficult? Was it? Yeah, because he's kind of got this, like, raised eyebrows, just like there are horns coming out of his scalp. It totally does. But it's not known. Or imagine it's just that eyebrow muscle, right? That thing that moves the eyebrow around and that's what's popping up there is He's kind of got this sleepy yet half surprised expression. He's like, Dude, yeah, he's the dude. Yeah, definitely. Okay, guys, I hope you had fun drawing the dude with us, and, ah, when a dope keep practicing. 5. Faces2: Hey, guys, we're here with our second unit in the how to draw faces for kids. Course who? You're getting more enthusiastic about this now. Yes. Could it be because of the face? That's next? No. No. Ok, well, we've got a girl, Um, kind of, ah, Disney esque type of face, right? That's animated look like, But just like when we approach things before, we're gonna look at it and say, Well, what are the shapes? You know, what is the basic thing that they're they're doing? And then how can we understand it and move forward? Right. Okay. So how would you describe her sheep? What do you think? Like uh, yes. Where is it? No, it's like a circle. Let's like something underneath it. Yeah, I don't know. It's almost like this box circle, right? It's kind of comes down, comes around here, comes up and over, right? So I think I would like coming around down, up and Oh, you know what it looks like? What? The Kendricks. Oh, kind of like there's a surprise insight. You could just put the middle there and then open it up and get our little surprise. Okay, So off to the side. You can freehand it, or you can kind of, you know, measure it off to the side if you want. Right on. What you're gonna do is kind of see if you can draw this rough Kendrick, right? You know, obviously it's just gonna be a little rough to start, right? And then we'll fill it in a little bit more. Actually, I think I wanted a little bit wider. Here. Go. Yeah, You know, it's no rush, especially at this point, because listen, if you start at this point, you're like, Ah, hey, start really messing up. No matter how slick you are. This, you know, this drawing is not gonna end up looking like how we want her to or anything like that, right? So you want to be, you know, taking a little bit of time in this construction face to find out really what the right shape is and stuff. Next thing we're looking for is we're looking for kind of a center line both down the middle, vertically and horizontally. Okay, So weaken, draw this middle vertical and this rough horizontal horizontal. That's right. Okay. And then we could start to do the same thing and try to find, you know, where the noses where the mouth is. Right? So the no seems to be if I was toe kind of measure it the no seems to be, you know, maybe halfway down. And then the mouth is just under it, right? Something along those lines you can cool if we really want to. We can come up here and see the hairline. You know, the hairline will be something like this. And now, looking at this, looking at this object here you're starting to realize. Oh, right. That's kind of like from the first video about the egg and stuff like that, right? You know how it starts toe warp the lines as we as we move that sphere or egg around the circumference, lines start to bend as they wrap the curve. Okay, so now we've got this. And you know what? After I have kind of roughed in the shape, there's almost always one feature that I started with eyes. Yeah. You know what? Mess upon eyes your whole drawings on. Really? Like That's it. Like especially two eyes. You can get one. I really good, right? But yeah, you're gonna be in trouble. Trouble if you can't get too right. So here's two dots of where I think I'm gonna start. Right. And I'm just going to kind of come up and over and under, maybe something like that, up and over and under, Right? Okay. Not bad. I think I can smooth it out just a little bit, though. Kind of coming inside here. You can clean it up just a little bit, right? Normally, we don't use a lot of erasures in this. Um, just because we're not at that point where I want things to be perfect, we're still sketching and creating and stuff right where there is a lot of construction going on. But you know what? Now that I zoom in, I can see that these air a little bit unequal. I want to come up higher on this side, right? I have to fix the eyes. I made them too small. Yeah, that's the thing. I really want to take our time on this one. Make sure we get the eyes right. Okay. There we go. And we can even put a little fold above them. Maybe put not in here for it. Okay, so there is one thing that we can do, And you know what we can do if we really want is at this point, we can Even a rough in where we're gonna draw the pupils, right? Like if there If we want the person looking off in this direction, we can put them over here. Um, I'm going back down. If we want them looking down. Obviously, you know, we can put them, put them here, actually. Know what? I'm gonna go with it. So I'm gonna go looking down for mine. I'm just gonna kind of Ruffin. There we go. Okay. So that's the eyes. Joey, you doing OK on ice so far? Yeah. Yeah, I don't know. Should add eyelashes were just keeping with eyeballs. Just keep it right now for this. Next one we're gonna do is come down. There's a nice little button nose, the bottom of the nose, the little top rim, a little hint of nostrils off to the side. Okay. Following the center line, you're gonna have a little dip off the top cleft of the lip. And if you want to, you can come up here. Come up here and just draw almost a goofy smiley face, right? And then you can kind of connect the lips to it. Have the bottom lip coming under something along those lines. Okay, Cool. Okay, so we've got that. I got the face so far. Um, eyebrows, why don't we draw? Go straight up from where this I starts, come up and do it. Tick straight up from where they I start to come up and do it tick And you can kind of, you know Come, come around this way How you want to do an eyebrow You can come up if you want to Basically , you want to start them somewhere Where the inside of where the eye starts and rounded out a little bit after the I ends Ok, that's an easy lesson for eyebrows. Just keep it in that that form. There we go. Cool. The other thing you're gonna notices along this. I line here, remember, this is I line that we're following, right? That's where the year start. So you can have the ear kind of come over and around and do the shape of the year inside. The ear can start here, come over and around and can start and do something like that, Right? Okay, so she's got these big goofy years now and stuff for him. I'm looking over joys now, and I could see she's taking way more time than I am on this. I just wanted to get the eyes right, because first I did it wrong with, like, people's and then it doesn't look good. And then I read it. And then I gave her, like, a word smirk instead of a full smile because I thought blissful smile looked creepy. You're on mine. No, I think I think yours looks really good. I'm just thinking G's. You took a lot more time than I did on mine. All right, Cool. It's good, but it's just you took way more time tonight. Well, I'm like, almost at your step. I'm like, Well, just one step behind you. Okay, So what I want to do is I want toe, Even though the ovals here, I know that my chin is a little bit below it. And then I want to come around income up to where that overs just nicely come up to where it meets the year here. So it's going to stay roundish, but it's just gonna drop a little bit lower. I can see on mine. I was a little bit to blunt with the with my initial circle and stuff for my Oh my Kendrick . That's what we called it. OK, now here's the hairline. Some people, you know, you start your hair part here. She's got instructed just a little bit off a center, so I can kind of sprouted up from there and I will work it down this way and it's gonna come down to the year here can flow nicely if you want to. It, um, on this side it's gonna actually flow over the I and over the year and then what we can do is come in and actually erase that. And there we go Now for the top. You know, you can kind of come up top here, having flowing have a flowing around This can come in, you know, think of when you're doing hair. This is something that people so many people want to do. Hair like this, you know, And it's gonna look like for, or something like that, like a bristle brush, right? You want to do that. You want to think of hair in waves, Hair is gonna flow in chunks and in waves. OK, so you wanna have this nice waving motion toe? Yeah. Okay. And then we can come down. The hair is still flowing, you know, it's it's nice and flowing here. It's gonna flow out. We're gonna have some just pieces of this way flowing inside her neck. You want to start it? Maybe. Where this lip comes from, somewhere in here, you can find a landmark up on the face and then have her traps last shoulders starting to go in there. And then is that her collarbone or Yeah, down here is actually like the where the color bones meat stuff. I guess you can put that little give it in there. Okay, so now you know, you can come in color of the eyes if you want. I think Joey's only done this and you can go around and just kind of do a halo. Well, yeah, you can either halo it or just kind of pronounced. See, my sketch work is really dark underneath this all, and I like that for teaching you guys, but you know I wouldn't keep it for, um for any type of finished work or anything, right? So what I would do is actually would I would go in and erase all that sketching and everything, and I would clean it up normally, but on what we're doing here, I don't think we need to write. So I'm just kind of instead going around just kind of giving a little bit more darkness to the form and figure. Right? Okay. Okay. Oh, yeah, She looks cute. It's like I got two little sisters looking at each other here. I think it worked out pretty well. I'm happy with it. It's exactly what I wanted. It basically almost looks like a mirroring here, but yeah, it's because of the eye position. Right, Joey, what do you think of yours? I think mine. The eyes made it turn for more realistic. So I don't know how I did that. I guess it shaded it or something. Yeah, you're rendering. You know, you spent time giving a lot more detail into it, and so, um, I think that really it's something I'm gonna tell you one thing that I would change on yours. Just a little bit is usually there's gonna be some hair that's going to kind of come in around around the ear, you know, like it's either. Even if it's tucked, you're going to see how it hits on this side. So it doesn't have to be exactly right there. You know, it could come kind of like that, but either way, you kind of had this blank spot. That's not how it's gonna work This year is gonna meet. It's either gonna come down there or there's gonna be a little tuft of hair coming in there . Okay, So what's said on the years on either side, You know, you can either have that little tuft of hair or something like that. But other than that, jeez, I think yours is beautiful. Thank you. Yeah, I think it worked out really well. And I think it's especially because of how you rendered your eyes. I think your eyes I didn't mean well what you did, and I can show it on mine a little bit more is you know, you took the time to kind of give the eyeball. You fleshed it out a little bit more. I think I just unconsciously do that possesses how I normally draw eyes. I think you also you did the, uh Yeah, the highlight. The highlight in the eyes and stuff I get. So if you do that kind of stuff, right, that's gonna give it just that extra little kick into realism. Yeah, right. So that kind of thing will just punch it even more than more. You know, rendering details, meaning, shading and all that kind of stuff, the more it's gonna look more realistic generally, right? Even if the structure is cartoonish, the rendering will bring it into a little bit of realism. If you want to stay away from it, you simplify. Simplify is more of a cartoonish thing. Looks creepy. I don't know what he looks kind of like the movie, but, like, really creepy. It's like you have a simple sketch with a new ad, like a lot of friend during and shading. And then it becomes more realistic, and then it gets kind of creepy because their eyes are too big, and then it looks wrong. Yeah, I've seen that before, but you know what? I don't feel creepy on yours at all. If anything like you know if you go in and kind of start cleaning some of this up cheese, This looks really kind of awesome. Sorry I clipped your nose. Let's go in and clean it there. Yeah, Yeah, I think she's gorgeous. I would add a little bit more, you know, a little bit of detail in the hair, the hair sweeping down a little bit more for the traps coming and stuff I got. I would actually bump this. This should be lower. It would be somewhere around here because their collar bones gonna come here. Right? Generally speaking. Yeah, I love yours. I think you did a really good job here. Okay. Okay. Guys, at home. I hope that yours turned out as awesome as Joey's. Whether it's a little bit more realistic of the rendering or a little bit more simplified. The main thing that I wanted you to do what start to get comfortable with the shapes, right? That's what we're doing here is we're really looking at, You know, what shapes did they use and how can we use them? Guys, keep Rex 6. Faces3: Okay, guys were back. And this is face number three in our how to draw faces for kids. Course I'm not excited for this one. It's on an angle, and it looks difficult. Yeah, legit, you know, like sometimes drawing a face straight on. Yeah, it's not easy, right? You have Teoh understand the shapes and proportions and symmetry and stuff I get but drawing a face that's looking off to aside. Ah, 3/4 view. That's tough. And this is not just a 3/4 view, but he's actually kind of angled up just a little bit here. He's looking. So honestly, this is gonna be one of the harder ones that we've done so far. I'm throwing this at you, though, so I think you guys condone it. Uh, we're still looking for basic shapes that this circle? Yeah, right. So in this one, we're just We're gonna look for the circle, right? The basic circle. Okay, here we can see it. The basic circles here, but from this basic circle, it's gonna come down into the jaw and then up. So let's see if we could do it again. Off to the side. Here. Basic circle is gonna come down into the into the chin here in the jaw and up and then hooking into the ear type of thing. So and the next thing you want to do is have that center line that comes down the middle. There's a center line that's gonna come down the middle. You know what? What's gonna happen here is eventually you're gonna learn how to draw kind of, Ah, a basic skull, right? And then be able to draw something like this. It's getting really ugly, but I think this is kind of makes sense to you, right with the back of the skull back here. Okay, so that's what we're doing. But because it's ah more of, ah animated look, things get distorted. Eyes get bigger, chins get bigger, noses get smaller, you know, depending on the character and start again, right, So we can do the same thing. We can try to bring this off to the side a little bit, and I've got some sketches in the way here, but should be okay. Um, what I'm gonna do is start with the basic circle. I'm going to kind of come down from that circle, have the chin here. Come up from the chin and then come up to the ear and come up this way. Okay, So this is our basic face, right? If this is tough, if you're not feeling it right now, do it a few more times. Sketch it off to the side, you know, Bring it down, bring it over, bring it up, and then bring it up to the year. Then find that center line or something, right? You can start the center line. I like to round it and then bring it down this way. Okay, Um but yeah, If you're really kind of like I'm not feeling it so far, stop. Because if you don't have it right now, it's going to get tougher. Tougher, tougher. You really have to have the structure already in place. Um, now, this is interesting, because this face could be looking down at this point. Could be kind of straight on, but no, we've got a bit of ah, upwards, a bit of an upwards angle here. Okay, so that's what's gonna make this even tougher. Is that this one is angle tough are, or egg or whatever it is is looking up just a little bit. Right. Okay, so we've got this marketplace for the eyes. The nose is a little high, but usually it starts on the under part of that year. The I line is usually aligned to where the year inserts right here. The nose, the bottom of the nose is usually where the ear ends now depends on the size of the nose and stuff I get. But they're using semi realistic proportions here, and then the mouth falls under that. And that's what we've got here. Okay? This this guy's mouth always got this weird smirk going on. So things are gonna be really wonky on this. This is kind of a tough, tough piece. Yeah. All right. So the 1st 1 we're gonna do is kind of we're going to start in the center here. We're gonna come up and do this eyebrow that's coming off. Decide? Yeah. Next working we're going to do is come this way. So we've got this kind of triangle pure man thing going on or whatever diamond shape. And then it's gonna come down into his nose and over this way to his nose. You could put one nostril here in one nostril here. Type of thing. Okay, so right now we're kind of going off a lot of geometric shapes, right? It seems pretty simple. This one's gonna come. You know, the eyebrow is gonna come in. His face is gonna kind of dropped down. It's going around about his mouth and then come down into this chin. But I made a mistake. What? What do I normally start with? Eyes. You know what, So now I'm scared. Yeah, but like, I think drawing the eyes straight away would have gotten the proportions wrong. Maybe it's because the eyes are in difficult places. So one eye is going to start right about here. The other eyes gonna start hidden by the nose just a little bit. Okay? This I is gonna come up and roughly over and then come back under. Okay? That's how this one's gonna look. And this one's going to kind of do the same, is gonna come up and over back down to the line, right? We're kind of using this line is, as are bit of a benchmark here. Okay. See if I can zoom in for you a little bit here and then it's gonna come back under, right? So again we start on the line, we're gonna come up and over. Then we're gonna come under the line and come back to our source. So we're kind of looking at this point at this point as key. Important points, right? Same on this side. It's kind of coming from hidden behind this nose here. It's gonna come up and over and then come back to it. Okay. Now, where do we want the eyes looking? While we could have them looking this way, we're gonna have them looking this way. We can have him looking whichever way we want in this original model. He's looking back this way. I think I might keep that the same. So I'm gonna kind of rough in where I would have those eyes and then come in and do them a little darker. Okay. It's always good to rough it in and then see if you can, you know, use use that rough shape guiding your way at this point, if you want to. You know? I know Joe. He's been doing this a lot. Filling in her eyes. Um, you can do that if you want you can come in and fill them in. You can even take any racer and start to, like, you know, add these little you'd see, um, highlights and stuff, right? He doesn't come. Doesn't really matter where. The main thing I'm worried about is us doing the shapes. Okay, so we're good with ice so far. Yeah, Yeah, we've got this nose, right, The nostrils, The mouth is gonna be weird because it's kind of it doesn't follow this line. Normally, right leg. It's weaken started on this line, but then it's gonna kind of come over here and then hook up. He's got this weird smirk, so it's not If it was a normal smile, we could follow that line really well, but it's not really following that line. If anything, we can kind of bring the teeth following that line a little bit, okay? And then the bottom of the mouth, my lines getting kind of ugly here, kind of goes like this and then cuts in. And then the bottom lip that's going to come underneath and his chin is coming underneath there. Now the character has a little bit of stubble going on. Not quite as impressive as my beard, but it'll work. He's got a very square jaw, comes straight back and straight up, and then we'll come into the year. But we're not gonna draw a lot of that year because, as we can see here, it's hidden from here. So hair, like I said, Weaken parted in the middle part off the side. His is kind of part in the middle, so you can kind of start kind of branching it off from there. He's got this big wave that kind of comes down and comes across this way, and his hair's kind of moving in this direction right comes up. But tucks down is kind of moving in this nice, flowy direction, right? Okay. From the back of his ear here, it's gonna be the base of his head. But it's actually it's also the neck. The neck is gonna come down this way and it's gonna come out to his traps. Um, the neck from underneath the chin is gonna come down this way and his Adam's apple, and this is called a SCM that runs down this way. These will both run down to where the clavicles meet his collar bones and come up this way . And there we go. We can kind of just rough it in this like that. Okay, Okay, Good. But he's looking kind of wonky because there's a whole bunch of weird things going on. He's missing an eyebrow so far, and this eyebrow was like, He's got this weird expression going on. So it's kind of it's like questioning. Yeah, it's kind of judging in this way, right? Actually, I could drop through if I want, but it's He's got this weird question. So is his, You know, his eyebrow. The muscle is also pushing inward there. Then his scalp and his forehead kind of run. Following our initial shape. There we go. And the hair kind of flows this way, flows over and kind of gets jagged a little bit there. Right? We can see this flow. Okay, there we go. Um, no, pretty much were done here. There's some things that I'm not loving about it, but I didn't love the initial sketch. Anyways, um, I don't love this. So what I would do for me, I think I would come in here and kind of clean this up. I don't love how this is looking on mine. What I wanted to do was actually bring it up, and then it kind of bulges around his mouth a little bit more. There we go. Okay. Um yeah. Other than that, I think this kind of works. We use the initial shape. It looks decent. He's doing what I want him to do. I think there's a Like I said, there's a few things that are bugging me. I might straighten out that knows a little bit. But other than that, I'm happy with it, Actually. Quite like Howlin turned out. Oh, my goodness. I'm looking at yours. And yours is legit. It looks like Flynn Rider. It totally does. You gave him work stuff on his chin. I should do that. There we go. A little bit more. Right? That helps. Okay. Yeah. No, I'm looking at yours, and I really like it. I really like how yours looks. I think all your practice on faces is really coming together. I'm really impressed. Long years years holder. You again? So many long years. But really, you know, that's what goes to show is when you keep practicing it. You know what's funny about this, though. Even though you practice it and you get kind of good what happens when you take a break? Oh, it gets worse. Yeah, kinda. You get rusty, you get a little rusty, right? And so I think with you, you know, I haven't drawn faces in the last I know a week or so where somebody got you know, uh, so I'm feeling just a little rusty minds doing okay, But it's it's you. But you've been banging it out for last few days. I've noticed, right? And so honestly, I can tell. So I think that's a lesson to our students at home that, you know, if you really want to, you just keep practicing, practicing, practicing, and it's gonna show. Yeah, I could see it in your work. Joy. It's really showing Any advice for the people at home? Don't practice. If you think you're practicing too much practice more, it doesn't matter. Just practice. Practice practice. Good. Good stuff. Cool. Thanks, guys. And like she says, keep practicing 7. Faces4: Hey, guys were back. And this is face number four. Yeah, she's got a nice warm face. It's gonna be easy. I think in the last one we had was a little bit difficult training. It was a little bit angled and everything. This is still my face turned to the side, so there is gonna be some challenge here, but I don't think it'll be that that bad. Okay. And you know what? We're gonna play with a real simple form here, Joy. What do you see when you first look at her? What's the simple form? You can see a circle A circle, right? You know, like that's what we're talking about. We're talking about a plain old circle here, right? So let's see if we could find this circle, right? And then, you know, right beside its here. Why don't we come over and we'll see if we could draw that plain old circle. Okay. Sometimes it takes a little bit of rounding. You know, you can go around a few times if you want. If you want to, you can even come and clean it up. You know, you can clean up your circle. I don't believe. You know, like my students needing erasers or anything like that when you get into the final product . Oh, for sure. We want to clean things up in everything, right? But I mean, right now we're just sketching, right? So if you want to, you can do what I'm doing right now and just kind of start cleaning things up a little bit , but it's not needed. It's okay. Okay, So we've got this circle and we're doing circumference lines. Joy. Do you remember what circumference lines are? No. Oh, come on. Okay, listen, like during this face, course you're going to hear this circumference line, right? It's It's that line that follows the center curve off the sphere shape or whatever, right? It bends along and it turns right. It can turn. And it's like when we look at a basketball and we got all those lines going among the curve of it, right? Okay. They follow the the center that circumference or whatever. We've got two major circumference lines on her face that are gonna be really easy. The one coming from the front are along the chin and then through the forehead. You see, it's gonna kind of cross, like right through the middle of the nose here, right through the middle of the lips down is gonna cross between her eyebrows and then wrap around so we can see if we can do that one here. You know, it's gonna come this come around and come down right, because she's slightly looking this way, or at least her head's slightly turned that way. Rather, And then the other one is gonna be wrapping on my level. You notice that it's it's kind of got this nice curve to it. So, you know, if I wanted to, I could do that same thing and just kind of make it a nicer curve going through all the way through. And that's how simple it isyou know if we want to weaken, do another little notch down below for the nose and then another one for the mouth. You know, I don't see it goes about this punch in this much, and if we even wanted to, we could come up into the eyebrows and measure it out and again if we wanted to weaken doom or lines to the eyebrows in the nose, the eyebrows and the nose, right. So you can measure tons if you want, or you can do what we call eyeballing. You know, once you get your basic things in place, you can kind of eyeball it. You estimate using the proportion how you look at it with your eyes and stuff, right? Yeah. Where you get going about He said, Guess to me. Yeah. I use that term sometimes, right? We can estimate. Okay, so we're gonna guest, mate, and we're gonna look and say, Well, why don't we go with the nose first? Cause it seems to be starting off in here. You have This knows knows this. I know. I know, I know. Scoop down and I'm gonna have it. I'm over here with little nostrils on the line, right? This I is going to start here, and this one's gonna be a little bit closer to the nose. Weaken. Do the the underside of it if we want, just hurt and then do part up top and you notice I'm not Poli collecting them. She's got this animated look to her. So there's a little bit of a disconnect in the eyes. A little bit, you know, on the edges here and stuff a guy they don't fully connected. Um, if we want, you know, we can shift where the eyes are looking, like, have the pupils looking more off to one side and, like Joey always likes to do. I I'm starting to do her thing and start shading the mid okay, gate. Now, these eyebrows really high up, but we're gonna follow these center lines, right? You know, we're gonna kind of clip them right onto that. That line there have a comeback, and it's gonna come come down around close to the I come back up and there we go. And this one's gonna do the same thing, but it's gonna kind of come to the edge of the head in that away. Yeah. Listen, if you wanted to play with it when you could do, um, you know, you could have this one come down. This is where you start to play with a motion a little bit, this one come up and it gives a different twist to train. You could do the same thing with the mouth. You know, you could have a straight smile, right? Or you could have. That's a small little smile, uh, Canada up tilted smirk on this side, right? You It's really depends on how you want to do it. She's got really big, full lips. So you got to make sure you draw those in getting kind of ugly sometimes. How's yours going, E? I think it's going okay. Yeah. You feel pretty good about Yeah, you bet. Yeah. Okay, so now we've got, like, a looks like a floating basketball with a face attached to it, and that's kind of awesome. Actually, that's really what we really want her. We're gonna follow this eye line off to the side here, and we know that that's where the year starts, and it's gonna loop around, Okay, We're gonna have the year like that. Top ridge of it, a little nodes inside of it. And if we want to starting here, we can start to bring the chin down following our are nice basketballs. She's so simple in her design on this room. Yeah. If we want to, we can kind of breed in the eye and then bring it. Bring it up towards the eyebrow here. I mean, you see what I'm doing here, right? I'm kind of bringing it in and up where you could just keep it around, like how that looks. Then you're gonna bring it up to here. Then our hair is gonna start here, and her hairline is just kind of she kind of rough, right? We want to follow the the line of the basketball. Right. But we don't want to follow with to close because we want to have some depth going behind it, right? So it's gonna come down and she's gonna have some swirls down in here. And then this is where it gets fun. You know? She's gonna have this this hair coming off of her and coming down, coming on either side coming down, you can get kind of loose with it. The other thing you want to do is from the behind the year here. Bring it down to the neck. Bring that part down. Call it the SCM. Actually, there's a long name before you guys don't need to know it from right about here. We can bring this down to this, is going to come to that little give it in her collarbone, and this is gonna be your shoulder here. But I'm not gonna drawl that. It's gonna go to a boat somewhere around there. Cool. How's yours coming here? Almost there. Hi. Yeah. Okay. Well, lets you watch Joey is she's finishing hers up a little bit, and I'm gonna get in here and do a little bit of a halo on mine. Just toe kind of dark in some spots, up. Anything tripping up their joy. No, no, I think you know what? This is one of our simpler ones that I'm glad you know, we sometimes it's good. Teoh, go hard and then have something easy Did. I mean, like, um, I felt that last one we did was a little bit tough. This one's not super easy. Like you could mess it up, right? Of course it's a face, right? The thing with this one is I think that ah, the simple shape of that circle as a base that really helped it, right? Like as long as you're practicing your circles, G's, this one is gonna be pretty easy to start filling in the details. Yeah, I think I'm done, but I don't think I'll add a halo to mind. No, no. Okay. I'm quite content with heading a halo. Yeah, I'm happy with mine too. I think it worked out pretty well. Um, I think that this was nice and fast, fast and furious. I think I'd call it, you know, maybe go in and start cleaning up some lines, getting bit of some, some of this sketchy nous and stuff like that. Right? But other than that, I'm happy with how she looks. Do we know who this is? It's more wanna. I'd say it's marijuana, right? Yeah. Yeah, She's cute, actually. You know what? Now that I'm saying it, I think I would give her a bigger lips. You know, she seems to have much bigger lips. Yeah, I need toe. I made your nose. Not wide enough. I feel like, Yeah, so you can kind of go in and say OK, well, what am I doing wrong here? Like, there's some things that I really like about it, But there's some some things that I'd like to change that will grab the character a little bit more. And so for both of us, I think widening the nose and thinking up the lips just a little bit right. He has hope. Cool. Mine looks very smug or she does. He's like, huh? I proved it. Please. Yeah. No, I think yours looks really good. Mine's got that one raised eyebrow, right? Yeah. So she's kinda questioning just a little bit, right? Um, yeah. I think this was nice and fast. And a nice, easy unit. My looks Asian. I don't know why. I think it looks kind of I think it's the eyes. Yeah, I think I made it to narrow instead of like, I give a little bit. No, you don't have to worry about it. I think like you've got the kind of you dragged up the eyes like I'm doing right now a little bit of the lash on the eye. So it gives that that impression that it's a little bit off more Homan shape a little bit longer, looking a little bit more Asian there. Yeah, fix it. But I just don't need them a bit more vertical instead. There, you cool? Okay, guys. Short and sweet. And if it's hard, what do you do? Keep practicing. That's right. 8. Faces5: Hey, guys, we're back, and we've got face number five. I like the sound of that face number five, and we've got no name tour. It doesn't matter. Um, because what we're looking for is not the name, but more how to draw her. Right? Okay, Joey, if you could describe her face in a shape, would you say it's like rectangle? Would you say I'd say it's like a kinder's with, like, a weird trap? Is oId Yeah, right. So you know what for? If I'm kind of tracing along and it I'm looking at, you know, this shape, right? I could kind of go around and I could kind of have this the shape, but then you're gonna see the jaw cuts in more. Right. Okay. So weaken. If you want to bring it off to the side, right, you can have And you couldn't even measure it out if you want, right, you're gonna have this kind of nice, surrounded, rounded shape, right? That Kinderhook eight type of look writer looks kind of potato to me, But then we're gonna coming here, and she's gonna have a bit of ah, harder jaw line. Right. Okay, So it's okay. To use the the potato guideline, you can make a little Boston. It make it look like an ugly potato. But now we're going to start toe cut away from it and stuff, Right? So, as usual, what do we do? We're gonna have this center line coming down the middle, right center line coming down the middle, and then we're gonna have this Nice I line. Look at this. If I was to measure this, where does it come? Well, that's almost exactly 50% of the way, right? So I can bring that over about halfway and just kind of have this nice rounding line. She might be slightly tilted forward. So that's why I've got that slight bend in it, right? If she was straight straight on, it would be a straight straight line. But I think she's slightly bent forward. And then you can see maybe the I start somewhere around there. Her nose. It's about halfway down, right? If I bring that over, the nose is actually pretty far down. And then her mouth bring that over her mouth is actually fairly far down to right. Yeah. Cool. So that's a good way to measure it right. And like I said, you could throw even more measurements if you want, you know, have this kind of thing and following. So this might be where the ice starts and maybe the the outside of the nose or the nostrils or something, right? You know, you can use all these different points if you want. The hairline. Might be somewhere around here. Depends how much you want tribal. And how much wanted guest meat? Yes, To meet Joey. You have no comment about that word nowadays. Ah, uh, I need you're getting used to it. Okay? I personally like the eyeball. I just feel like something's going to do. The measurements that get it's messed up a bit, so Oh, no. I just feel better when I eyeball it. But then again, sometimes it gets me mad when I call it. Yeah, right, you know. So what I usually recommend is start off by measuring things. And then what you could do is the next time you draw, you know, you you start to just roughly eyeball it, and then you start toe here like, Okay, all I need is these two markers and I'm good to go, right? So I would say, you know, you could draw this a few times and just see Yeah, what can I get away with? How much do I need to measure? And then how much do I need, Teoh? Well, like for me for what I did, I just measure, like the size of the head. That's a good I estimated everything else. Basically, it's like when I added the trap. So OK, so I'm going back to my original thing and starting with the eyes, right? I'm gonna find she's got these. Nice. That would be eyes, right? It looks like he's wearing, like, really intense eyeliner or something. Yeah, and they come almost to the side of the face a little bit there. And then, um, what you can do is come from this side and come in if you want, or you can come from the inside here from right under here and come up. It's really like what? What way? Feels good for you for handling that a bit of Ah, curve. Right. Okay. You just wanna have them relatively. Even then, what you want to do is kind of come in and have more of that swoop in the eyelash, right? You can thicken it up a little bit and then thinking up the bottom. Okay, I got a question for you. What? Sheep isn't I like an eyeball? Especially circle. It's a circle. It's a ball. Right? So underneath it all, you know, we're drawing on eyeball. Right? So we've got to realize that that if we're drawing Eyeball, the eyeball is probably sitting something like this somewhere in here. So what you want to do then, is me. Sure. You used the inside and outside of the curve of that bowl to give it that that roundness. It's not It's not a flat surface, right? Has got some round shape to it. Okay, So even the pupil on everything inside has got this this roundness to it. It forms over around the eyeball. Right? Go in and clean it up if you want. Or something. Okay. Okay. Next one, we can have the nose, Little bridge of the nose down here and old. You know, the less details on her, the better. We're just gonna add in a little bit of nostrils. Their little bridge of the nose. Right? Here's the center line for the mouth. It's coming this way, and she's got a little smirk on this side. And then a little straight line just on this side below her nose is a little different on the top of the lip is gonna come straight straight back to this side lip and this side of the mouth. Okay? And then underneath, nice, full lips. And on this drawing, we don't We don't have it connected, but you can if you want. Right. Okay, so now we've got this interesting floating face for And that's how a lot of these air gonna look until we start forming about these faces floating on shapes from, um, next up, I would say used the the eyebrows. So we're gonna follow this kind of inside line from the I come up here and on this side, we're gonna follow it up. Can you bring it up and back down? You can scribbled in however you like, Just got pretty thin eyebrows, right? It's like the 19 nineties. Look, Very nineties very nineties esque. Do the other side bring it up and back. Nice. Cool. Okay. Um, there's another facial feature that I think is really cute on her. These little freckles. You can add them in now or after it's all done. It's your choice. A lot, but a few Really? Up to you, Crystal. I riding on that. You? Yep. Coming below. Actually, you know what? We're gonna use the same eye line, come up here and draw the year coming off is gonna come back and down and it's gonna end up somewhere around where there's knows comes up, OK, This ridge of the ear, a little nub. The bottom piece here, and this is gonna come down into her jaw. You do the same on this side. Have the note the year come up, gonna come back down, toe roughly about where the nose would go. Have this rigid a year come up the little nub. Maybe some details in there, the bottom part, And this is gonna come down into the job. So I kind of made the jaw a little bit hard, but it's actually gonna be a little softer and little rounder than how I roughed. It doesn't have to be exactly that hard and down into the chin. The chin I find is a good place. Tow center yourself, right? Like if I'm kind of wondering. Well, where's my center line? Well, you know what? I can have the chin on the bottom here, and it'll kind of center me and then coming up from that side and coming up from the other side. As long as I placed this chin right. You don't feel good. The drawing itself will feel a lot more centered. Okay. The neck, her neck seems to be started from somewhere. About this side of the eye. Come down. Same on this side. If I come down, the SCM is pulling towards that point. Hurt. The traps come down this way. Here we go. So am I done? No, no. Some guys. Definitely nothing. Yeah. How are you doing? Oh, I can see you're playing around and adjusting a little bit. It's just cause I felt like my mouth was a bit off center. Yeah, okay. It's fine. Especially if you're working on a tablet. You get to do some digital tricks. I'm trying not to do that. I'm trying to think of it just in the way of like as if I was working with paper. Yeah. Okay, So here's her hairline. So we're gonna have, like, the kind of the hair sprouting back from here, right coming down into here and coming down into it year area spreading off to this side coming down to here, you'll find that the hair line often has a relationship with the eyebrow on this side. You know, it'll have that kind of relationship. So this is the hair was acting, but above the head where the, you know that that layer of hair is resting. Even if it slipped all the way back, it would still come something along here, right? And then I'll come straight down. So it's coming on this side. I could come and drop straight up on this site here and then round it over. Here we go. And then she got this wet hair. So it's kind of supposed to fall straight down, you know, with the wetness, right? It's just the weight of it is holding it straight straight down and there's no waves to it or anything like that is just going straight down Cool. And if I want to, I can, you know, just go around, do a slight halo to give it some punch Now, this character has got slightly more realistic proportions. It's not heavily rendered, so it's not super super realistic. But the proportions wise are lot better than some of the more animated ones that we did before. The ones that look like Disney character. Right. So you're gonna find with this one, you know that the I is exactly halfway down the head. You know that paper thing, right? Okay, so I like her. Although I feel like minus tilted up just a little bit more like, especially with the eyes looking off to this direction. I don't know if I intended that her. If I was to do it again or we do it, I might bump those eyes down just a little bit, right, Joy? What do you think? How's yours going? You almost done pretty good. Yeah. Is that how you imagine it? Uh, no. I'm making the news a bit bigger, So Ok, why? I feel like I drink to school. We'll look at that. If I was to change mine, you know, I could come in and drop it down a little bit, right? I could thicken it up a little bit. It gives a different, different feeling to it, you know, like, just just by adjusting something like that. Right? So it's interesting how you can play with it just a little bit and get that different feeling, right? So whether it's the knows, whether it's the eye shape, lips, the thickness, whatever we're noticing that these small little changes are having a big impact in how the characters is looking right. So if you're ever feeling it's not looking quite right, pause a little bit. Take a look. Look at the one you're trying to replicate and say. Okay, well, what features? Different. Where is it? Off? I was in my measurements, or is it just the size of these different features? Right. Okay, Joey, you ready to roll? Yeah. Good stuff. I think it looks really solid. And you know what? I think we're done on this one. Yeah. Yep. So guys at home just keep on practicing 9. Faces6: Hey, guys, we're back. And one, We're still looking at face number five here. Oh, I am. And there's a reason for that. We've drawn the same face, right? We've drawn it as, ah, straight on shot. We replicated off to the side. But now, if you recognize what we're gonna do is come down and draw that same face. Ah, full profile. A side profile shot. Okay. And not just that, but it's kind of looking down. So, you know, hopefully you can get kind of comfortable. This is what we call almost like a character sheet is drawing that same character from a bunch of different angles. So you get used to some of these proportions. So if you remember when we were drawing this face earlier Ah, we we have this center line, and about halfway down we had her eyes. Right. Well, check this out. Here is gonna be our center line, and about halfway down is gonna be the I line right on. Lee. The shape We're going to do the shape from the side here so we can have this there, this circle, but then it's gonna drop down and come back up. So Let's see if we could do that. We're gonna bring this off to the side a little bit part. See if we can bring this off to aside these points, we're gonna have a circle and we're gonna drop down on this angle and then sweet, but so what's this sweep? Do you know what the sweep is here for here. Who? Job. That's her jaw. Right? And what does it come up to? Her ear. Yeah, well, yeah. Or like, the bomb of here. And if we measure it out, you know, if we're looking this way, we'll about halfway is gonna be this eye line, right? See how that kind of work? CIT's kind of awesome, actually, that we can still keep this proportion whether were the heads looking this way, you know, and we're gonna have it about halfway. And that's gonna be the eye line. So that would be the ear here and stuff for OK, but we've tilted this head down just to throw in some added difficulty for you. Yeah, yeah, yeah, but it listen, if you want to, you can turn your paper so that your head is, you know, just kind of straight, straight like that. Facing facing forward this way and stuff, right? Just to make it that little bit easier. So shift your paper around. It doesn't matter. I'm not there. Joe is not there were not judging. Okay, So why don't we get right into it when we're looking at I from the side, It has this kind of effect. Do I mean, we're just looking at it from this. I remember we've got this I bowl here, but looking at it from the side were only able to see this. Much of it would be visible of the eyeball. Right. Okay. So we can come here and do something along these lights. A nice little triangle. Have the eyeball. That showing remembers a curve. Okay, there we go. If you want to. You can put a little bit of LaShawn there. You come in and add that later. If you want or whatever. Right. Give some definition into the lash. Okay. Now, depending on the character, usually somewhere around here is gonna be the eyebrow bump. Right? We've seen that before on characters from it's gonna come in for the nose and then bump up for the nose Now, this girl's got this cute little button nose. Okay, so it's got this little ridge to it and everything. She's got that cute little button nose, and this is gonna come back down for the lips. So I'm almost drawing these shapes trying to follow along here a little bit. Right? It is. Nostril will come back down around. Cool. How you do enjoy you. Doing OK? Yeah. Good stuff. The lips. You know, you can give a lot of definition to them. A little definition from the side. It's kind up to you. The one thing that I would say that was, once we get down into the chin, don't just drop it straight down. Most people have a little bit of protrusion for the chin. A little bit of a bump there, and then you can brilliant and swing it a way around up along the jaw. Here, we're gonna go into that little bump the little number of the year. The ridge that starts around the eye line here, and then the ear finishes somewhere around this knows line. Do you, Kim? But that nice little ridge. We've got some bridges inside. Some details of the year. Cool. And we can add in a few little freckles if we like. Well, spending how we want to do it. Little crow's feet. I don't know how old she is. Actually, she's not, but and then the forehead can be smoothed out there, too. Cool. Ah, the eyebrow is going to start somewhere up here, raise up and then finish just behind the either. Okay, now the hairline. Usually we have the hairline. Remember it all kind of kind of copy. The, uh, the eyebrow A little bit Like it likes to come forward here and then around out and then back. Right. This is the usual hairline. So if you can follow that a little bit when you're doing it, you can follow those that line a little bit, right? You could have the this hair. We're still doing that slicked back here. Okay? So little sideburn here. But it is. It's slicked back. It's being pulled back here. That's gonna come up. It's gonna be pulled back. It's all slicked back coming to the back of the head that's wet and dripping down. Right? Okay. There's no waves to this or anything like that. It's coming from the back of the head, and it's gonna be straight dripping down on the ECM is gonna come down from behind the year here, the sternal clean old mass toid and then the little Adam's apple. But not, you know, the part that was under her chin is gonna come down into a shoulder and then down. Now, we can ever here flowing down the front here, too, or whatever. Depending on you even have a few locks, if you want. That got loose in the front a little bit. Right. Okay, Um, the only thing that I don't like on mine so far as I think I would give her a little bit more depth behind the head, I think for the size of the face that I gave it, I think I'd like to see just a little bit more back here. There we go. That seems to be in keeping with, you know, if I was gonna have the back of the skull here and then the the hair on it and stuff I got that's what I would like a little more some hair dripping down. You can even throw in some water dripping off of it or something like that, right? She's wet, so there's gonna be water dripping down everywhere and stuff. Okay, so the key point when we're drawing a face from the side is remembering that the eye is different. We've still got an eyeball, but we're only seen a part of it, right? We're seeing just This is front opening here, and it might even be a very small part of the pupil that we're seeing. Okay, You The eyebrow will be somewhere above it. Same as we normally do and then coming behind it Cool and forehead will come here, come down into the nose, something along those lines. And so you can just work, You know, the size lips. They could be goofy to a goofy chin. However you want it. But that's for yours to play with. You can play with all the proportions you want within stuff for Joey. It's a tough shot. What do you think? You're really tearing up these faces lately? I've been really impressed. How did you work on yours today? Okay. Just okay. Yeah, disappear. This one was harder than the other ones. Um but I like the hair I like how slick back it is. Yeah, that's look back here. I think if I was to change my just a little bit, I'd give a little bit more. Well, space up top here. There we go. I also feel like my person needs to be angled down a bit more. Yeah, I think yours is. Ah. Is angled up just a little bit too much, but But it's OK. You know, we're learning what we like and what we don't like with this, right? Yeah. OK, guys, I want you to practice, I think looking at mine and then looking at Joey's, I think there's a lot of room for improvement on both of ours. But I think we also like what we're seeing here. Now we're liking the groove off what we're putting out. Um, not every everyone's gonna be a masterpiece. You know, Not every every drawing is gonna be exactly how you envision it. What do you do? You go back into it, You tweak it around a little bit, you play with it and see if you can do what you want to do with it, right? See if you can change it. Just bump it a little bit, just like I did. Now I'm like, Yeah, you know what? It looks a little bit better now a little bit smoother, right? That's what you want to do, is don't give up. Don't give up just because it's not turning out exactly the way you want it to take that lesson and roll with it. Guys keep practicing. And I'm just I'm really impressed. You know, I want to see some of these drawings that you're sending me. So many of my students have sent these drawings, and it just it blows mine and Joey's minds, right? Like all these sketches air just so so cool, Right? We love seeing them. So sketch, um, scan them and send them our way. And guys always keep practicing. 10. Faces7: Hey, guys, we're back, and we're with face number. What is this? Seven? No. Seven? Yeah. Wow. It's going pretty well. Not bad. Um, you know, sometimes I like to hit you with some hard ones, and someone's are a little bit easy, right? This one is gonna be on the easy side, But we're gonna do a couple of things to it that will make it a little bit tougher. Okay, we're gonna play with some expression a little bit. Okay? So this is what I want to do on this one. Actually, we're gonna do the same thing we normally do. We're gonna look for this shape if you see the shape. It's kind of Ah, circle biggish, circuit English. I know I'm bad. Right. Um, the other thing, like what I want to do here is just I'm just gonna Whoa, that was a little bit too dark. That's all right. It'll work. Pull this across just so I got the measurements for us. So I'm going to draw these like, little circle eggs. I'm gonna drop to. And there's a reason why I'm gonna do this. This one is gonna be a little bit different than last time. Right? Um, down the middle, we're gonna do this center line and central line. We're kind of doing two at a time here, Right? And we'll do the middle center as well. There we go. So we've got what is potentially here. Three faces in a rope. Right. Okay. Now, how are we going to do this with changing this simple face, right? What I want to do is play with expressions. So this 1st 1 if we look at the expressions we've got what's happening here, the eyebrows air kind of coming up, right? They've got this upward tilt, right? The eyes air big. Something like that. There's some stressors above the eyes, right? A little bit of stress there. Another key thing is this mouth, we've got dimples down below, right? And then, you know, the nose doesn't change to too much with the emotion. It might wrinkle up with aggression, that kind of thing. And then the eyes air small right. Okay, So if you're you've been following along with me and I know who I was going fast, I was doing it for a reason. Um, you're gonna have a stress little face sitting there on this Magic Bowl, right? This line and contour ball. The key points are What are we talking about? This raised eyebrow, right? Okay. Raised eyebrow, especially in them in the middle. Here is middle part is race, right? These stress lines over top of the eyes, Uh, the eyes themselves wider, then maybe normal and then centered. And small pupils cool. The other thing is this mouth actually gonna lower just a little bit. Look stressed. It's got these little dimples down below. Look under it, David. Above. There we go. Okay. So what are the key factors for stress, Joey? To show them the I rose the eyebrows. What's the size of the people? The size of the pupils? Sure. The frown. Well, you know, be careful with the word frown. It's not frown. It's just I don't know. Okay. Well, it's those raised eyebrows. Oh, you're talking about the mouth. The ship? Yeah. Yeah. Okay. It is kind of a frown. It's this downturn downturned. Ah, grumpy cat kind of thing, right? Yeah. Okay. So what you can do now is just kind of if you want to, you can finish this off really quickly. You know. Have the hair come in. Have the cheek come down. We're gonna go up into the year. I didn't really give myself enough room for it because I wanted to draw. Get a couple times here. Okay, So for you guys, if you got room, go ahead and do it. If not, I'm not stressed over it. That means there's some other things that we want to be doing here today. Okay, but definitely she's looking all stressed. Right. We'll get now. Let's change something Easy. One to switch the's eyebrows. It's tough being up here. We're gonna bring them down here. So we're gonna have him like this, and they're gonna be coming into the center. Something like that. Okay, these eyes are still going to start on this line, but they're gonna be smaller, more focused. There's still the same width is what we're doing before basically right. But the the vertical up and down is gonna be a lot smaller game. Gonna have this knows. But you know what? Maybe we might add a little wrinkle up here or something, right? There we go. I think you could tell what emotion I'm going for already. Here. right. So I've got these downward facing eyebrows, right? Smaller eyes, little wrinkles in the nose. Maybe Still a downward mouth, but a little bit open. There we go. The eyes maybe will be. Sometimes looking down gives that angry look all right. Isn't okay. So we've got a whole bunch of things going on here. The downward eyebrows, the smaller eyes mingles above the nose and this still angry mouth twisted off to the side just a little bit, right. You can even put some, you know, a little mouth emotion there. Right? Come from here. And then you can if you want to draw in the face, right. She's still got this roundish face going on. Um, the hair could be a little bit wilder. Still the same kind of design, but maybe just coming into the face a little bit more. And there we go. So you can see how she got a lot angrier, right? Yeah. You wanna have the ability to change somebody's emotions? So when we look at, you know, normal emojis or whatever, right? You know, we look at, uh, these types of things. The simple happy faces and stuff. Yeah, they're not realistic. Yeah, they're not exactly what you want to be going for, right, But they are reflective of something. As soon as we see them, we read them. Meaning we read the meaning behind them. And that's what you want to be able to express. You want to be able to express some meaning behind the character that you're drawing right now. Okay. So what do you think, Joey? Did you express some meaning behind your emotions? Yeah, I think so. Yep. Your 1st 1 looks scared. My second looks just kind of annoyed. That's OK. You know, if you want to and what you do is you bring the eyebrows down even further, right? Like, look at that. That's really starting to get angry and stuff again, right? You can bring them down further. You'd have the eyebrows, the muscles, um, bunching up against each other and stuff I got. You could have some stress lines above and stuff, too, so you can push this even further. You know what a really good exercise for this is? What mirror? Oh, you know, look at your own face and see, You know how things move or I guess, nowadays, um, What do you have charging? Sitting off to the side there. My phone? That's right. You know, you could use a foam snap. Some pictures of yourself just in happy, sad, confused, You know, these time yet? Well, I never get it. And, you know, you don't have to draw yourself. You don't have to draw yourself perfectly. You could be drawing the hope you could be drawing aerial to be anything but you want to try to capture which way the key features of the face Move. Right. Okay, guys. So your homework off this one is Take some pictures or use a mirror and try to grab a few more emotions. See which way the eyebrows move. See how the mouth looks and see if you can catch it in a drawing. Good luck, guys. 11. Faces8: in West Philadelphia. Born and raised on the playground is where I spent most of my days. Hopefully, some of you guys know the rest of that rig, because who we draw next. That's right. Big Willie Sell fresh Prince of Bel Air, right? I'm a big fan. I remember his career growing up and stuff I got. And so I chose him as one of our more realistic drawings. Now, listen, this is important. When I say realistic, there's two meanings behind that. Sometimes realistic could be in rendering, You know, the shading. And that's a big, big thing that you'll see that happening there. But in this case, it's realistic, as in its proportions thes air proportionately. Will Smith okay, His eyes, his nose, his ears all in the place that they're supposed to be. Okay, so we're gonna try to draw some realistic proportions here. Um, one thing that will help you when drawing proportions can be sometimes, you know, measuring just a little bit, right. So you can measure using a ruler or just your your eyes a little bit and stuff and and bringing that across right? Okay, So using that what shape are we looking at will Will was a kinder's surprise, I think. Yeah. I love that. We've made a new new head shape. I don't think anybody has that patented yet. The tender surprise head. Right. So we're gonna do the same thing, and we try to get the same width roughly. There we go. Roughly, Will Smith. All right. Of course, we're gonna tweak a little bit. His jaw is a little bit higher on this side as well, but that's what you want to do. Then what do we do? We find the center line. Luckily, this is a straight on shot. Right. So we're gonna find that center line going straight up and down, and we've only got this I line going across. We got that I line going across that we measured to begin with, right? OK, so right now I think we're doing okay. We're looking not so bad, actually. I think mine's a little narrow. Know that I'm looking at it, but it's not bad. Like, I think, uh, I'm drawing maybe 20 year old will instead of 40 year old whalers. You got a little bit wider in the face as he aged. Yeah, some people do that? Do you have any comments about my age? No. But like, you know, that smart? No. No, Leonardo DiCaprio doesn't. Okay, so what we're gonna do is kind of start to play some things. His eyes might start their little wide right. They're little wide away from center. His nose by followed along. His nose is somewhere around here. Sometimes I draw circles just to kind of rough it in a little bit, right, His mouth starting at this point on either side. He's got this kind of uplift. He's got a good big smile on him, Okay? He's gotta live below. And then the eyebrows, we can follow them across their roughly starting, but where the eyes are and coming across, right? He's got a nice hair line up above better than my hairline, I think. And you know what? This is important sometimes where the eyebrows are, you can get where the hairline comes. Okay, so it can. It comes like that. Cool. Okay. And of course, Big Willie. He's got some some years going on, right? He's ah, little well known for these years. Cool. You already done well? No, I just kind of roughed out. Uh, you know, the key areas and stuff. You know, where these key parts of his features are right now, I could the same bind looks more like a clown than Will Smith. But, you know, it's not like he doesn't clown around, right? So So I'm going, Okay. And, hey, listen, if I'm going too fast and it seems like I am because my kid isn't even keeping up with me, and she's really good, um, you know what? Don't stress. Just put me on pause. All right? Pause for the cause. And just let me sit while you catch up. You don't have to worry and follow along with me. You can fall along with me cause me and then rewind and follow me again. Right? So don't feel that your stress trying to keep up with me. Okay. So let's see if we can add in a few details here. Where do I always like to start the eyes? Yeah, I love to start with the eyes. So in this case, he's got this nice kind of realistic covering for the eye comes under. I like to do the top first, and it comes under right? Kind of nice home and shape. Okay, a little lt'd line above it and start toe. How do you roughed a lot of this in? So, you know, it's pretty easy right now to just come to come in and add in some details there. I can add the pupil and, uh, little inside pieces of the I remember that on eyes. A circle, right? Actually, that's better size. So we want to have the the showing, that sphere inside. Okay, I'm gonna have the nose come out with the bottom of the nostril. Nice little ridges. Got the little bump on his nose where he's got a cute little nose there. Okay. Gonna have the mouth come up and then come for big smile and then his teeth, they're going to come down and big smile on those as well. Uh, will Smith almost always had a goatee. So we're gonna rough this in from under the nose out to the dimple and then back down to the chin out past the mouth a little bit. Hope to the dimple and back down to the chin. And then just following the chin just a little bit. There the lip underneath his mouth with a little bit of hair underneath it. And then we can bring this goatee down underneath, being this good heat down there, looking a little thick right now. Um, secret than what I would like. I think I brought it the goatee alluded to thick, but not bad. Uh, I'll fix that a little bit By bringing in the jaw. I'll smooth the jaw just a little bit. There we go. Okay. Now for his ears, I can come up and around. He's got these nice kind of with for lack of a better word dumbbell years and stuff I got, you know, adding some details in there. Bring it up and around and adding some details in there. Now, this is how we have this roughed in here. But actually, the head is gonna come from behind the ear a little bit. And behind the ear. Why is that? Look at how, like I made a little bit wider up top. Then I did the bottom. Any idea why that is No. Okay. If you ever look at a human skull, most skulls get a little bit wider in the corner. Like as they moved to the back in the base of the skull. They widen a little bit. Okay? So his face might be the shape off our little kinder's shape that we drew in, but the actual skull is gonna have a little bit extra thickness as it goes back. So not just counting his hair here. The hair could be part of that as well, but he's got a pretty tight fade going on, right? Pretty tight cut. So really, what it is you're gonna find that above the nose ish, right? If if we have Ah, if we have a skull, you know, here's the nose. Here's the eyes. Here's the teeth. Shit. You're gonna find that, like, this is the front of it. This is the general face of the back of the skull back here. Yes, a lot thicker is back. Part of the skull gets a lot thicker. Okay, so keep that in mind when you're drawing that. You wanna? If you're going for a little bit of realism, you're gonna give it a little bit extra going on above the year there. Okay, So I'm gonna bring this up, maybe around it a little bit better given poor will, but a school damage there that I can do. The hairline cuts down for the eyebrow above the eyebrow cuts in. There we go. Not bad. I could give him a straight on neck if I don't want to draw exactly how I had it before. And that is Will Smith. Not bad. Although I'm kind of overlapping a little bit here. I think it turned out pretty decent. What do you think? For your will, Smith, it's OK. I don't like it, but why don't you like it? I don't know. I think it looks good. I think his, um let me take a look. I think the lower half of his face looks a little squished. If you look in his eyes that you drew compared to the reference eyes, you've got his eyes sitting just flat right on that line. Right. Whereas in his eyes lift just a little bit above it. Yes, they started that. But they've got more of an almond sweep underneath them, whereas and you've got this harsh cut line underneath. Especially on that on the one on the right to him. So I think that flattens amount a little bit. It's funny because when we're drawing these more detailed kind of realistic proportion ones , as soon as we do something that's a little bit off Boyd, we ever recognize it. Yeah. I mean, like we can say, Well, yeah, that doesn't look like Will Smith. Yeah. I mean, we can recognize that. Oh, it's close, but it's not quite right just because when we do the cartoonish versions, we give ourselves kind of a little bit of an allowance is saying, Wow, it's a cartoon version and stuff like that, right? It could be a little bit off a zoo, long as it kind of resembles the person, right. But as soon as we're trying to hit that more realistic version, our standards go up. We start to be a lot more critical for what we're looking for. Okay, so that's Will Smith. Listen, because this is more realistic proportions. Uh, I wouldn't be surprised if you had to be wind this again. Do I mean, this is not easy, Okay? So don't worry about it. Don't worry. If it's tough on where if you struggled a little bit, the key point is to keep practicing. That's right. Keep on 12. Faces8b: That is a much better in troll than the one that I tried to wrap, right? Yeah. All right. So we're looking at Will Smith again. It's again. Again. You wonder why. Yeah. Okay. We're gonna do something that we haven't done before. And this is tough. We're going to do a bit of a caricature. Joey, do you know what a caricature is? Um, sword. Ah. Well, what do you think? It's you told me? It's like accentuating prompt visit call. Prominent, prominent features on someone. That's exactly where do we usually see characters at Like Disney? Yeah, Going to Disneyland or carnivals Or sometimes even in the mall or something, right? Yeah, We'll see. Ah, caricatures at those places, right? And listen, those people that do them there, boy, are they good. You know, they've worked on caricatures for years, and so they could sit down there. They look at somebody's face and they just bam and they do it so quickly, right? They grab those features and sketch it out really fast, right? Sometimes they'll render it with pencil crowns or something like that. Sometimes just even just ink, right? Like they'll just sketch it up with pen and they're done. We are not going to do tons with this, but I wanted as a little bit of an introduction to caricature work for you guys at home. Okay, so and this will follow nicely because Will Smith's got an interesting face for last time. When we talked about Will Smith, we gave him kind of a Kinder's Kinder's shape to his head. I think it would be good if we did that again, but I think we're gonna narrow it just a little, Okay? So we can grab what you're doing. Sometimes with these caricatures is looking for the the foundation of the face and then pushing it in this case, we're pushing in just a little bit. Okay, so we're still using that Kinder's surprise egg shape he's got going on, but we're gonna push in the sides, give it a little bit more narrow. Okay? We're still going to use some of these same measurements that we had on the other one, but we're gonna switch him up a little bit. Um, what are some of Will Smith's most prominent features? Do you think years. Years? Yeah. So we're gonna have these years, but we're gonna blow him out. Yeah, We're gonna have a big, big and goofy, right? Anything else? His? Oh, I'm gonna say his mouth. Yeah, I wanna have a really big mouth on him. Okay, Chip. And the other one I'm gonna do is his neck. I want to give him a little skinny neck. Okay, so those are the main things that I'm gonna mess with. Um, well, I didn't even draw center line here. There we go. I started going with the features. Two quick. We're still gonna have his eyes still gonna have the eyebrows. I might even make them a little smaller. Make things a little smaller. Uh, I might do We want to have his nose bigger. Small. Haven't small because our focus is are the years and yeah, I think you're right. Um, you know, like, if we load everything too big, then nothing looks big. Looks like a monkey. Yeah, a little bit like it looks like, uh, some won't. It's looking goofy so far. Right? And that's what we want. Right? Okay. So what I want to do is still have the eye shape that we gave him last time. Okay, so you can go in and sketch the eyes a little bit. You can give him the same eyebrows, that type of thing that give him the same shape. Knows we're going just a little bit smaller this time. Right? Um, drawing in the pupils there, weaken, do that hairline. The same kind of way bringing it down, bringing it down and then down to the here. Okay, Now, we're gonna come out to the year and come back around, come out to the year. Oh, I wanted a little bit around her on that one. Come back under. Could have the jaw come down. Come down. Okay. Now I want to do some details in the year. I like doing this first rim first in the little nub underneath it. Some of the details in the year on the ball, but the bottom. Okay, we're gonna have these big dimples appear. Mustache will come up to the dimple. Come down, come up to near the dimple, come down and then give him a little goatee. Bottom. Here. We can have a smile will be nice and big. Huge big mouth. Right. Teeth coming down. Here we go. Now. The mustache portion will come up. It will come down, do a little bit of lining here, Right? And listen with this one doesn't have to be perfect, you know, because it's a caricature. It's just taken some features, right? And then the head will come up. I remember going past where we initially had that port, the net coming down. Maybe we'll give him a little Adam's apple and coming up to there. Okay, so what did we do? We blow tsum proportions here. Um, I feel like my eyes missed the mark, though for some reason, I think I made them too small. What do you think? On yours? How did it go? Were you close? Um, I think I did okay. Yeah, Just okay. Just okay. Yeah. Let me ask you, How often do you do caricatures? But so I think for ah, first time caricature, I think it went really well. Like I said, the key thing with these caricatures is just grabbing some of the key features that you can see on a person and playing with them blowing them out, making them smaller. Whatever it is that you feel is gonna be fun, but still a little familiar, right? It okay, Cool. Big Willie style. Yeah, I gotta say, I like yours. I think yours eyes actually a little bit closer to the mark than minus. I think you you did with yours. Uh, a little bit better than how mine worked out. I don't necessarily. Some parts of mine look pretty good, but I think I blew the are years out a little bit too wide. You, I think, was a perfect proportion. Like how skinny I made his neck. Yeah, right. That's part of it. You know, Will Smith growing up was really skinny, dude. And so, you know, you could play on that a little bit too, right? Yeah. I think this looks really well. And you know what? When it comes to proportions, this is really you know, it's something fun. It's something that we learned in our basics. Course. Hopefully you took that before, right? That you can play with proportions. You know of a figure. Well, you can also stretch them out for the face and caricatures air perfect for that. Okay, guys, that's it for this. Hopefully, this little extra bonus unit of caricatures was little bit fun to play with. Yeah, Yeah, it was fun for you. Yeah. Cool. 13. Faces9: Hey, guys were back. And this is face number nine. Do you know who were drawn here? Yes, I do. Are you sure? Yes. Do you know her name? Yes. Do you want to say her name? No, thank you. Her name's Rhianna, right? And she is quite gorgeous. So I picked her for one of our more realistic faces. Right. Uh, we're gonna look at how and it looks like her, right? Like it? It really does. Right? So we're gonna try to recreate this face, but what do we do? We start with looking to see what the shape it's. I feel like she has a tender egg face, but, like with smaller jaw. Yeah, I would agree with that. I think you're exactly right. So what we're gonna do is kind of measure. You could use a ruler or just free handed off to the side, right? Measured off to the side. Here, see if you can draw this kind of Kinder's Kinder's look right. I'm kind of measuring how wide it is. You can use your fingers. Actually, I do this kind of pinch test for like, doing Ah, measuring width and stuff. I get right so sometimes you can use your fingers for how wide it is. So this looks about right. I can't say it's perfect, but it's it's getting there. Right? Okay, Well, because it's realistic. We wanna have it somewhat the same, right? We don't want toe messed up to two badly. Um, weaken up and down the center. You know, if we want, you can use a ruler. You know, if you really want to. If you want to use a ruler for doing these kind of bisecting lines and stuff like that, you know, you're welcome to, um is your choice. You know how much you want to use a ruler. I don't always recommend it, though, because it can give a really stiff feeling. You know, I'd rather use a bit of a curve, as as I'm drawing these these lines in here and stuff. But some people feel real comfortable with rulers, so I don't mind. Okay, we've got her nose right. We can measure this across to if we really want to. And then her lips cool. So you can What you can kind of do here is just kind of rough it and say, Well, I know that her Her eyes are about one I space apart here, right? There's about one I space. So one eye is gonna be this space and another I's gonna be this space. So if I was accounted be like 123 right? Her eyebrows are right above those. You kind of come back and back down again, back and back down again, right? Her hairline is here. It comes roughly from the eyebrow. Up in around right. She got these kind of years that stick out just a little bit up top. Cool. She's got a nose here. And by doing these circles, I'm just kind of roughing where the main body of the noses where the nostrils are in stuff from she's got a that give it in her mouth and have quite a narrow mouth. Actually, it's not any wider than her nostrils. If you'd noticed it comes down to almost the exact same point trip, and then we give a really full lower lip. Her neck is about the outside of her eye. And so if I bring this down, her neck is gonna be somewhere around the outside of her eye, and then it comes like that, right? So already we can see the makings of what looks like a realistic face. We've got this nice space between the eyes. Usually. How we want to measure eyes are Here's one I Here's one space. Here's another space. Here's another space Here's half and here's half, half of an eye on either side of it, right? But it depends on how wide some of these faces, you know, that's the general thing. Thea Other thing we want to measure generally is this to this is about halfway from the top of the head to the chin. The I said it about the halfway mark. If we look then next, This is where it gets kind of funky because sometimes the nose could be halfway down, but her nose it's a little bit of high, right, and then her mouth sits a little bit high as well. So this is where the individual this is, where the individual really comes into it as well, spacing between the eyes but really spacing between the nose, the mouth and the eyes. You start to shrink it, push it up, push it down. You really change what somebody looks like, right? Ok, Joey, how you doing For the roughing it so far? Yeah. Okay. So I'm gonna switch over into black and see if I can get into some details here. Right? But my face a little bit closer to the paper here. Okay? And maybe her eyes start on this kind of nice slope. We could see how it's sloping, and then they come down or I slow up and then come down, okay? From the back, They come this way and they come back up to the line. Come this way and come back up to life. Okay? Now, one thing that I noticed a lot of people do is what they try to do. See if I can race just a little bit here. I feel like it's here we go. What a lot of people do when they start to do eyelashes is they go like this. And listen, I think every kid does eyelashes like that. Um, not too many people in real life have eyelashes like that. Instead, what eyelashes usually do is they start toe, they go along b I and they kind of sweet. Belong it right? Depends how the makeups done on a lady, necessarily. Right. But they're kind of gonna have this sweet pea motion to it underneath. They might, depending on the detail. I'm actually gonna really come in here, and I'm gonna show you guys, they don't really rest on the bottom of the either's usually this thin layer, and that's where the eyelashes will come. There's a little bit of a rim if we're looking down on the either's the rim of the eyelid and so the the eyelashes don't sit on the inside. They're not coming out like this. They're actually sitting on the outside of this island here. Okay, so this is kind of important, so you can kind of dark in it this way and have the eyelash is coming out. Um, try to do it on the other side. You want toe flow flow this way, and you can get the occasional one going a little stray, right. And then they're gonna come in and stick out that way. Okay. Now, remember its fears within the eye. Right? So we're gonna kind of have the inner and outer connections there. You can, and then she's got this nice. How is her eyes? sitting, Maybe a little bit closer. Tow center ice like that, Right? With more realistic eyes. What you're gonna find is you can do the outline a lot more and then the pupil and darken it up if you like. But then what you're gonna do is maybe come in and he racism's spot to it. Where the lights touching it. Something like that. Right. Okay, so she's looking pretty good so far, I can come in. And now start on the eyebrows. Her eyebrows are gonna follow these lines that we set earlier. Her eyebrows are a little thick to start, and then they come into a taper little thick to start come into a taper, but they're going to stay thick the main way through. Okay, it looks good. Um, going down to the nose, gonna have this little bump under the nose here. It's gonna come into a nostril, drawing all the details of a nostril, drawing all the details of people. You got to be careful because it pulls the i a little bit more in the direction that you might not want to rip. So I'm not gonna draw every detail on her. Um, if I start drawing every detail, you know, it's gonna age her really badly. There's gonna be all these age marks and stuff that we'll take away from the message that I really want. I don't want her to look older. That's not the Rihanna looking for him. Okay, so I'm gonna come around the nostril little bit. Come around. You can see how I use my original circles as a bit of a guide for where I'm gonna place this stuff. Right. Okay. Gonna come down, give this nice little cup to the lip, and I'm gonna mimic it a little bit down there you were a straight mouth, and then her lips are nice and full, even up top. But really, for down the loo. There we go. Nice. Okay. Obviously, this changes per person. Don't mean like, if if I was to wipe this away Ah, and give her smaller, lower lips, it would change the look of her. Right. But that's not what she's got. She's got these thicker lower lips that have a lot of mass on the bottom end here. Okay, So you want to make sure you catch that good stuff, okay? Also, she had this little ah, hang on her island above right. The chin is actually for but below. It's not where this is. It's a little bit below this line. And remember, I told you on a previous one that I like to kind of round out the chin first and then start to bring it up right? I find if I sent her the chin where it should be, the flow of bringing the jaw up happens a lot more. Naturally, everything's a lot more centered If the chin is just sitting right. Okay. So I'm gonna come up to here and come up to that point in her year, like drawing it from that point. Right? I think there's some hair here. I'm gonna bring the year out and around, give it a little nub here. A little bit of details inside. Bring the year, uh, and around again, giving it the little nub, some ridges and details inside. Yeah, this point it's easier multi down here. I might as well just draw on the neck, drawn the her traps. Okay. She's looking pretty good so far. I got to say I think her her jaws a little bit too harsh, though. So what I might do for an example would be I might just bring it in. Ah, hair. Just bring it in just a little bit. I feel like it's that's the thing when we're drawing actual people, you know, we gotta be really consider it off. What they actually look like Cool. Shaving that little bit offer jaw, I think, helped help the fear of it. Now with their hairline. Um, what I did originally was just kind of roughed it in and then came up and kind of did some directional spurts and stuff, right? Keeping in mind that this is the base of the hairline where it is, Maybe a little hair can flop down or something like that. And then the actual hair is gonna be sitting a way above her head here and coming on down, right, so it can come down Pastor years on either side. I can kinda rough that in, Right. We went on that back away a little bit. There we go. And so at this point, what's happening is the hair is coming up this way, right? And it's it's kind of falling. Imagine it's falling. This way, right? So the hair, the streaks of it is gonna be coming down this way and there. We've got a decent looking Rihanna. I think that Ah, my version of Rihanna did what I wanted it to do. Especially if maybe I clean up the hair line a little bit, right? I think it looks like a lot like her. Very recognizable, right. Um, I think maybe if I was doing it over again, I might push the the focus and intensity of the eyes. The first reference picture. You know, she's got, like, a lot of focus in the eyes. This one. She's kind of a little bit more relaxed. So maybe if I was to come in here and bringing up that away, I don't know, that might help just a little bit, OK, but either way around, it's looking pretty good. Joey, how is your Rhianna government? It's OK, just okay. Just okay? Hey, you're starting to clean things up. That helps the look. Yeah. Why? Is it just okay? I don't know. What do you like about it? Nothing. Really, Really. I think it's a good looking girl. I think I like the eyes. That's it. Yeah, I think you did really well in the eyes. Right. Um, I think I feel like the faces to squish. That could be I don't know. We're looking at yours right now. I think it looks pretty decent now that especially now that you're cleaning up all these construction lines, um, I really like the look. So at home. You know, I left my construction lines in because I like to show you guys how I get to where I'm going. Right. But what you always doing right now, as I'm talking is she's cleaning up all hers, and that's going to give that piece of art a little bit different of a look. It's gonna be more polished and sometimes maybe even better looking right and looking at Joey's right now, I got to say I really like it. I think she did a really good job with it, you know, um, I know she might not be satisfied up with it, but I love it. And here's the thing, too. Is like, you're gonna find this as you go further and art and stuff that sometimes what you see in your art isn't always what other people see him in your art, right? They might see something amazing. Your parents? What would be like? Oh, that's the best, right? Put it on the fridge. Um, but you're gonna probably be your harshest critic through most of your life drawing. And that's OK. Just don't beat yourself up. Recognize when you do a good job. And today you did good job on this, Guys, you did a amazing getting through all this, and I'm really impressed. I'm impressed with the drawings that you guys were sending us. And I'm impressed that you guys air keep keeping at it. So keep practicing and look around you because there's a bunch of faces to be drawn. 14. Warm Up Shading: Hey guys, it's Joey, and I'm here to teach you a little bit of a warm. So let's start with radiance. So right now, I just want you to know draw really, really hard on your paper and then go lighter and softer as you go down. You can do this at any angle any time, so you can do this in classroom doodling or when you're just warming up to start drawn. See, they kind of look a bit like tornadoes, but they really do help with shading. This is a really easy exercise to practise on your paper because it can be really small or really big. It just depends on how detailed do you want to make it. You can go from dark to light or light to dark. So right now I'm gonna go from really like Teoh a bit darker, so you can just do this a little bit before you start drawing each day and it will really help you in proven shading. OK, have fun 15. Warm Up Lines: Hey, guys, it's Joey. And I'm here to teach you a little bit of a walk. So let's start with thoughts right now. I'm just drawing some dots on my page. It can be closer or farther away from each other. All we're doing is practicing hand eye coordination. We can do this before and after. Dr. This solution not be rest. So now we're going to start drawing lines to them. This health, you keep a straight your line. I usually I'm not that good at keeping a straight line. But this does really help with practice. It doesn't matter if you mess up. This is just helping you get better each time. So you'd notice improvement each time to do it. I recommend doing this exercise each time you start drawing. It really does help with you drawing straight lines. So just do this a little bit before you start drawing and have fun 16. Warm Up Circles: Hey, guys, it's Joey. I'm here to teach you a little bit of a warm up. Let's start with circles. So you want to remember to keep your wrist very fluid and just start drawing circles. They can be big or small, doesn't matter. And remember that you can fill up a page of circles or 1/4 or half doesn't matter as long as you get your wrist moving. Okay, so now we're gonna move on to ovals. So it's basically a circle just stretched out so we can do it horizontal or vertical. And you can just calmly do this while you're watching TV or anything. It's an easier exercise toe warm up with. So right now we're doing a circle, and we're kind of just warming up our wrist, and it's kind of looking like a tornado, but it just helps with having fluid motion while you're drawing. So just do this a little bit before you start drawing and have fun
