1. How to Draw Anime Head: Hey, how's it going today? I'm going to go over how to draw anime. And so what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna go over the head specifically. That's kinda the starters of anomie. This is for beginners and it's going to be step-by-step. So if you're a complete beginner, stick around, this is going to be very easy. You should be able to do it. Like if, even if you've hardly drawn anything in your life, you will be able to do this. Okay? So let me go over really quick enemies about simplification. Let me go over the steps. So the first video, I'm going to go over how to draw the eye, the anime I. And I am going to compare it to regular anatomy, right? What is like in a regular drawing of an eye and kind of what Animate does. Because animate makes very specific changes and they're pretty consistent throughout whatever anime you watched or they'll be kept at UAB Dragon Ball. You in the Ruto are some of the newer stuff. They're pretty consistent changes. And I'm going to show you what those changes are to the eye and kinda what they usually do. Then I'm going to go through the nose. I'm going to again talk about a little bit about the regular anatomy of a nose and kind of how animate simplifies that process. So you can tell what it is. Then I'm going to go through the mouth, which is very, very simple. Same thing, same process. We'll go through the ER. The ears would be really short one because the year is almost exactly like a normal year. But again, it does take some things out of that as well. And then we're gonna go through the hair. I'm going to teach you three hairstyles that I think are very common throat anime. And then finally I'm going to go through a demonstration of a male face and then a female face like the whole head. I'm gonna go through a demonstration of a male head and a female head. And that is pretty much it. Everything is really straightforward. So if you've been wanting to learn how to draw, again, manga, anime from the neck up, you know, just kinda the basics of it. Then this is the spot. Okay, let's get started right now. Okay. Let's jump into it. 2. Anime Eyes: Okay, so let's go through the anime eyes first. So I want to see it general AI is made up of a couple of parts. Okay? So if we redraw or like a realistic human eye, we would probably do it, Something like so. So let's just say faces looking at us are right, We're looking at their left. So when you're looking at just the parts of the eye and looking at the tear duct right there, kinda where you can cry over here would be that there's usually like when you look at the shape of the eye on the top, there's usually a bit of a peak right here on this side. Like if you're looking at it as an abstract shape, like a diamond or something, let's just say we're looking at both eyes or something like that. Oops, Daisy. Let's say we're looking at both eyes. They peak on the ends, on the inside top, right there, that peak. And they usually kind of peak on the bottom right here as well, bottom outside. Bottom outside. And it's small and it's subtle and you can kind of change that up to whatever you want, but that's a huge part of that. As far as other parts of the eye, you have the sclera, which is the white part of the eye. You have the iris and you're going to have the pupil. Iris is the colored portion. And then there's the pupil. And usually going to have a highlight here which intercepts all of that, like a highlighter to highlight points of light. And then the upper eyelid right there. And that's like a regular eye. So biggest difference with anime eyes, they tend to be larger. Generally. I mean, different animals have different structures for that. So Pokemons can be different than Cowboy Bebop and become a bebop. They're usually smaller. It's kinda depends. But let's go over this real quick. So usually they're larger. And then the other thing is they don't connect everything. So for example, if we're doing the kind of top eyelid, you would have it kinda end a certain way and you would draw a very large, by the way, the pupil and iris. That's the biggest difference. I'll say this is huge and anime eye. The pupil and iris is huge. And then sometimes you can just end it on like a single line down here, like a singlet, you'd have to draw the bottom width. Let's go over here. And let's take it out that top kind of eyelid. And you get, you're going to draw, you can draw eyelashes off of this. For feminine type, I think, I think even masculine. But you usually, that's kind of a big thing, is you will have a very thick eyelash on the top. And you do not connect them with an anime I. The highlight is usually gigantic. And let's kinda put in the pupil there, which would have been this over here. Let's contrast the realistic I, more realistic, I write still like cartoon with the NMAI. And if you want some versions, you can kind of connect them. So let me draw a couple of them. So right here, let's start with this top eyelid again. Are the eyelash. I'm going to thicken that out till second that out, fill that in. Now I'm going to pull this down on this side, kind of the lower eyelid. Then we get very big and I pull it upward here. So it is connecting on this one. But almost always the tear duct right here. This area is almost like this area right here is almost always gone on anomie hike, almost always. So just kind of remember that one thing you'll probably be able to make it more animated like a very large iris, very large highlight. You can redraw couple of highlights. And then that tuple there in the middle. Let's keep going on the eyes. I'm just going to keep it the same 0 and go back and forth. But we'll just a contrast. Let me show you a more serious I. So let's start where almost always. I always, always start with the top kind of eyelash area. We got over here and a few small lashes coming off. Let's really is connected or down here as well. On this one on the outside, it's connected, always connects to the outside. Pulling in. And this one we'll have a bit of the well, I guess this one does too. So bear on here with the eyeball is this is a little bit more of a Cowboy Bebop. I, it's pretty closer to a real big highlight here, and we'll make it square on that one. And then draw a circle here. Whoops, I mean draw the iris here. I'm sorry, the pupil, the pupil is black part. And let's draw a very cool eyebrow. And usually I'm around, you can make a single shape. And it can be relatively thin. They can be kinda everywhere, to be honest. So what I like to do is a solid line here for the most of the eyebrow. And then on the inside, right on the inside. I like to throw a few directional growth lines like where the hairs growing in there. And it's a great indication for that. Let's do another one, right? Let's just keep doing it until we get them. Again, starting with this top eyelashes, really make this 1 over the top thick. Sorry about that second one from your fill this in now. All right. And let us okay. So we've got a really thick eyelashes and eyebrow, eyelash. I'm going to pull in right here. And I'm going to give this character really big lashes on the outside. They're like thick, I mean, really thick. They're not that big but they're thick. You could draw a line on here, right here, separating them. And then drawing a line down here for the eyeball as it goes down. And let's pull this down here. We're going to make even this continuation pretty large. Okay? And circle, circle for the eye. And I'm just going to draw a thin line down here where it touches and that's it. Okay? And then let's draw a huge highlight. And let's draw a little bit bigger of a pupil. Now we have before or we're getting it. Okay, One more time. Let's go over this stuff one more time. Okay. So biggest difference is there's really no tear duct and you hardly see the inside part of the eye, the inside. Like you hardly ever see I connect. A lot of times you don't even need to connect the outside right here. You could, but you don't have to. The bottom. Lid can be literally a single line. And if you want, you can throw on a little bit of some like extra lashes over here. Let's do one more. Okay. One more, one last one. So curved line. Then make it a little bit thick. Nothing, not too thick. The thick enough. Pulling out over here. Not too low. Well, let let's pull them out. Long. This time has make it long and skinny. Long and skinny as opposed to shorten really thicker. Line down. And similar over here, but the thinner down here. Almost egg-like with the eye during a single line. That's where it ends. Big highlight. And then a pupil here. Let's do another highlight over here. And here are a bunch of, uh, by the way, fungi lights. And you can draw it maybe like little eyelashes over here or something. And if you want, you can split it off. Sometimes it looks better like that. You know, the eyelash over here and then this is where the eyelid is going to begin. And let's draw a little bit of a skinny I eyebrow over here. And draw it like some little lines on the inside of that eyebrow. And that is, it is literally that easy. You can exaggerate it, you can make it. This part is big as you want. You can make maybe the bottom line here a little bit thicker if you like, and maybe make hair coming out of it. But that's the basic. So let's go over them all again. And don't draw where the inside I connects. Just don't draw that honestly ever. Large iris and pupil, large highlight where the light hits the eyebrow. You can make it any which way you want. I like doing a solid line. Then on the inside of drawing like hair growth, like little lines where the hair grows. And that's kind of it. That's actually the biggest difference. So I hope that helps you. Let's move on to the nose. Okay. 3. Anime Nose: Okay, cool. So let's get into the nose. Animate nose. So let me go over a real nose first and then animate nose is kind of that, but it takes that information. So for example, a real nose has a bridge as a ball of the nose over here. The nostril right now, so like a hole. And I fill it in. And then there's the wing of a nostril. And then like the Far Side away. That's kind of what you need to know as far as the nose. Because we're going to go into this pretty easily there. So an enemy knows, that's more of a real nodes, right? An enemy knows it's a little bit different. So it's more like so it's a more simplified sometimes it can literally look like a checkmark. And it's obviously depends on the anime. I know some of them had like really long noses. I think like vampire D head like a really long nose. Can't remember. But it obviously varies, but it can look literally like this, like a check mark. You're taken out as much information while still having it read. That is called indication. And so that's what a lot of it does. You can do that and then have like a little liner for the nostril. From the side angle. Side angle. It could be like the front. So slightly to the side, side angle can pull over here, pulled back, very similar shape. It's going to pull in. And then you have like maybe a little almost of a dot of a nose. Sometimes, especially for the front. You can literally get away with just doing this. Like literally just drawing the nostrils and you can get away with doing that. So it's kind of up to you. But the big keys here are the nonsteroidal, the bridge, and usually the bottom of the nose. So you can do this like the nostrils and then maybe you can draw like a line like that. Kind of a little bit of the ball here, but it rounds up very, very easy, very, very easy. I would like you to think of a, especially for the side view. Think of that bottom right there as a like, like, think of that shape, right really flat on the bottom. And they will do that as well. You can also draw them like that. It looks like literally a wedge. So again, up to you, There's so much you can do with this. You can draw maybe a wedge and the nostril there. You can draw it down here. They hardly ever do the wing, but you can do the wing if, if it comes up. But the wing like it's hardly ever there to be honest. But that is it. Honestly, it's a really simple, right? Like I said, you can go super ultra checkmark with it as well. Like a three-quarter view. So let's go with this goal over the whole thing, right? Recap. On a realistic eye. You have the bridge, you have the ball of the nose. If the wing and you have the nostril and animate, you tend to like get rid of the wing, except in some cases. And the ball is not really that prominent. Usually the balls very, very vague, like a pointy tip. Not always, but usually pointing. And the nose could look literally like a simplified check mark with a nostril, the nostrils are most important, like literally the most important thing. And then the bridge, kind of that pointed nose and then the bottom. And you can draw it like this, like a wedge. Like literally that looks like a shape, right? Doesn't look like a shape right here. Like it like you cut out like a, like a like a triangle. It can totally look like that. And that is it for the nose. I hope that was easy for you. So that's a simplified key to it. Let's move on to the mouth. 4. Anime Mouth: Okay, so let's go to the enemy mouth. The mouth is interesting because you don't really have to know anything. Having a lake like hi or whenever the realistic features. And then I went over the animated features and I think for this you don't really need to, you don't really know it and know that realistic features, that much I will go over the, so here's a realistic features of the mouth, of the lips. So if you were to look at the lips is a geometric form, it would be something like that. These two kinda mountain shapes and then like a big fat pad at the bottom, you know, the big kinda usually what the big fat pad is, it's usually two kind of fat pad shapes and then kind of but it looks like one. But sometimes you see a bigger split in some people, it depends. And that's the way regular lips are. To be honest. I think anime will kinda thrown out the window, which is cool because it simplifies. Animate is about simplification, okay, that's a big part about it. So with an animate with the enemy and animate, what am I at, grandma? We could throw a lot. You can literally throw a straight line. Even that would be fine. They're a little bit of the bottom lip of that fat pad, remember? So you can draw something like that. You can draw the almost cat-like, like that. It has a little bit of a bump in the middle, even though it doesn't really conform to like any anatomy per se. But that is really cute when people want that stuff, they're sad would be something like that's really simple, right? Just straight line. But it goes down at the edges. Common thing would be the mouth is slightly open, so a line on top, bottom line down here. And then pull back at that line. And again with that bottom fat pad, that at least that that's really the most common thing that kinda gets rid of the upper lip mostly. Right? And then you can draw like a little like edges and teeth there. It can also be, let's think of another one, like open, like the top right there, open bottom right there. Some teeth here, some teeth down there. And maybe you can even fill this in to put some lines there. And don't forget that bottom fact that you don't have to put it, but I mean, it's a good idea. Another thing I really like as well, that's very, very common. So definitely remember this one as well. Would be literally drawing like a kind of circle right there. Like a bean shape, right? Let's look up. And then right here where the teeth are gonna go. And it's going to draw the teeth on the side. You never really draw all the singular teeth and I usually draw them from the side and they never connect. You could also do that same shape. Maybe like a, again, that kind of, you know, that you can really draw a lot of different shapes. Let's just say another kind of open mouth like that. And you can draw maybe like a wiggly line like with like so while like an angry shape like her. I mean, this was kind of her as well, but more are and that's kinda it really to be honest. That's I mean, those are the most common I'm trying to give me most common ones. You can draw a straight line. The mouth is very easy and simplified and that's the reason why I love it. I would say, Oh, here's one last one. Over here. Draw a concentration at the top. And then a curve at the bottom. That's a very common one. Draw some top row teeth here, and maybe draw a tongue in the back. I got a big tongue, you know, right there and fill that in. I guess I could also look like teeth, but I rather like that and have it look like a tongue, to be honest. That's another one. But the possibilities are pretty endless. And like just take away this simplification is kind of the mark of this feature. It's really just the opening line. And were things open up and unusual? Usually usually the fat pad, usually the fat pad on the bottom. That's almost always usually the upper lip is like gone, is really rare. But the upper lip is usually completely gone. That is it for the mouth. Let's move on to the entire head. We'll do the whole head. 5. Anime Ear: Oh, I forgot to show you the IRR and isn't going to be very fast because the enemy ear is again, a simplified version of a really are like everything else is simplified, stylized version of what it's representing. So I don't need to go over really are, to be honest, I really don't. So animate ear obviously has like this big curve on the outside, pulls in. And what you can do is you can simplify it by throwing in that little notch, which I think is the frame. It's called triggers, a camera pulling up in down. You have that one shape. Okay. And he pull another inner shape. And that can be it. I can literally be it from almost all angles. I mean, a front angle. It's usually more uptight than that. But it's like similar shapes that notch up hook and then pulling down. I mean, there's some definitely, there's some outliers. Are they really simplify the air words, literally the letter C. And then you have like a line right there and you can do that. But usually stuff like Dragon Ball, stuff like that. Usually it's the large curve, the large C. We'll go over again. The large curve, which really points to the top a little bit curved at the bottom here. A notch right there in the ear hook, and another circle right there. And that's really all you need. That is literally it. Just kinda remember those things. The little notch, hook, circle, large curve, and you'll be completely fine. Okay. Absolutely great. High. That is it. Let's move on to doing an entire face. Okay, that was a really quick one. Okay. Let's go into the whole face. 6. Anime Hair: Okay, cool. Let's go over hairstyles really fast. Before we go over that in the actual head. Let's draw some bottom of their heads here. Okay? And let's start with a very common one. Almost always going to be straight. I mean, there is curly hair obviously this hairs Hair of all kinds, right? But usually this is the hair I keep seeing over and over and animate would be kinda forward. Think like maybe l from Death Note or you're pulling your, your thinking in large shapes first. Okay, So right now I'm thinking of kind of the large overall, the large overall head shape. So let, let me think of the larger one and shade first. I might put a notch in here for that kind of where it grows out of. And I'm going to pull down. Usually it's a very common one. And then down here when it reaches a face, I start pulling smaller strands. And the other thing you have to remember is that it all has to be going in the same flow, okay? So all of it is going that same direction. And you can draw little mix as much as you want, big and small. But you have to remember where it's growing out from, right? And you want to try these small lines towards the bottom because our gravity takes place, right? A lot of this is kind of like brushing up against the skull. And then down here is where it displays. You can choose left or right, but as long as it's flowing in that same direction because we're gravity's going. And then you can draw a small, maybe, maybe lines on here. Right? And again that those lines, if you draw like small lines on there, they have to be going in that same direction. So that is like literally the most important things to remember. I can't remember where it's growing from and then pull down and these spikes right here, you can just do them in any any you could do like a big one right there and then do like a couple of little ones. That's fine. You can, That's all kinda extra. You have to remember where it's growing from, which is right here, this area that's where the hairline is right about where it's growing from. So that's that's a big one, right? Another one would be where it's growing upward and normally have a sideburns a little bit. Right? And it's gonna go up to the hairline. The hairline usually goes across and a straight line over here. But sometimes you can have a curved down like a widow's peak, like, kinda like the Gita. And so let's do that widow's peak here, right? You have that strong shape, right? And then you pull out from, again, where's that growing from? It's kind of growing from here, right? So remember that's growing from very similar direction, kind of going inward, up, up. And if you want, you can make this spiky. But as long as it's all going again, this is going up. As long as it's all going in the same flow and direction. That is the most important thing, right? You can keep going up. Let's say up to like, like it's almost like semi, semi dragon Bali. Like let's say as a peek at the top. And then it comes down again, right? But they're all going this direction. The flow is the most important thing, the flow of where the hair is going. And then we can go over here and figure out if you want to draw something in there, it's kind of up to you. So that's the most important thing that flow. So this flow is going upward. As long as they're all like all like a school of fish, they're all going the same direction when we fill these into. So it makes more sense. And the last one, I mean, I guess it could be a lot of them are variations of those, to be honest. Oh, we could do long hair. I didn't think about lung here. So long here usually there's not always. If there's like we call it. What is the shape called again, I'm sorry. I'm like, It's very simple, but I'm not going to look at banks. There you go. Let's say I'm thinking that it's one shape. This character has bangs. All right? And now I'm going to think of the long shape right here, gravity, right? And I'm gonna, I'm going to put like a notch and this one. Let's just go straight down. And let's have the hair come over here. The long hair It's going to go through are like little face thing. But see I'm thinking in large shapes. And the large shape I want down here, it's going to end like that, like in this big Here bunch at the bottom. So on I think in large shapes and then I can break it up. So now I'm going to break up. She's going to be growing from this area, right? The hair is kinda growing from here. And I'm going to pull these lines kinda randomly. And I mean they're going to be totally random. You can pull them any way you want as well. A long, short, short, short, long. To kinda come to kinda create the illusion of like like the direction and stuff like that. Pulling up here as well. On the edges. Correctness separated them out. First line here, line here, and they can be a split right here at the top as well, where you can draw more lines like so. And that's long hair. So those are the three types down, up and then like long, which I guess is a more extreme version of down. But they're obviously, these are haircuts, so it's gonna be a bunch of different versions of this. So yeah, maybe look through magazines and try to follow. I'll just look through look through your favorite manga and maybe just copy some of those to kind of get them in your long-term memory. But those are the simple ones I want to break down for you, and that is it. So let's move on to the head demo. 7. Demo Anime Heads: Already. So let's talk about the structure of the head. Structure of the head. Usually the way I like to do it is I like to start with a circle. As far as construction goes. And I usually draw a straight line down the middle. And I connect the jaw to that. That's usually the way I work. Some people like drawing like just an oval. It's up to you however you want to work, but either way there's no wrong there's no right or wrong way to do that. As far as like measurements. Generally. If you have a head here and let's just say split that in half. So let's just say you have an eyeball around here. And even eyeball over here, whatever the actual whole eye socket minus the minus the woody, call it the eyelid. So ideally, you could put in an eyeball since the space between there. And you can kind of do that out here as well. It'll will go outside the border though, maybe to the IRS. But that's kinda the measurement, you can say like five eyeballs across generally. All right. And one more thing is usually and this is not always true. But I'll give it to you. I like kinda dividing things a little bit into thirds. So normally I like to divide the head into segments. So for example, let me draw that a little bit lower. So this would be like the eyebrows around here. This area. And ratio would be about where the nose is, right with the nose is going to be. And then you have the bottom, the last third, which would be the bottom of the face. And in the upper third where you can add the hair so the hair ends up adding more to it than that. But I like kinda dividing the head into thirds that way. I'm seeing it's about otherwise measurements are ready when you're drawing the head in the side view. So you're drawing the head and it heads looking to the left. Usually the jaw is about halfway between the back of the skull and the front of the head. Right. And then like if you divide that halfway, That's where you have a jaw. Usually like really give them the back of the skull because the one of the most common mistakes and drawing is not giving them enough back of the skull. And they can go over here and divide your thirds. All right, So let's get into more of a like demo that's common, mostly it for as far as proportions and things like that. Let's go for a male head first. And I'm gonna do the hair down. So I usually like I said, I start with a circle. Let me, let me do this with a pencil first. And you don't have to do it this way. You can just jump right into it, but I like doing it this way so bad, but also for teaching tool. So we're going to start with that circle. I talked about pulled down. And I'm going to throw the John this side and the John this side. And this is just loose, right? I'm going to maybe take this, divide it into roughly, roughly thirds. But I remember that is going to be hair on top of that. All right. I'm remembering my spacing with the eyes. I'm going to start with the left eye. First. I'm gonna go into pen and I'm going to draw the top eyebrow. I'm sorry. Yeah. It's the eyelash. I'm sorry. It's not eyelash. On one side and I'm going to start with the other side. I like starting with those. As far as like, I'll start with the structure of the head. But as far as the things go, I like starting with the eyes. I'm going to put a very large circle here. And same thing on this side. Going to draw a line down, line down a little bit, but I'm not going to connect it like we talked about before. Oops, I dropped that. I am going to draw an eye lid at the top here. And I lay it over here. All right. Gonna draw a line at the bottom. And a line at the bottom. Here. I'm going to go over here and I'm gonna draw a huge highlight first, and the huge highlight first here. And then I'm going to draw right here the pupil, the pupil on this side. So let's go down to the nose. We talked about how I draw the nose and I'm just going to literally draw a line like that. And I'm going to draw a line over here and a line over here for the nostrils. Very, very simplistic. Very, very simplistic. I'm actually going to, you know what, I'm going to pull line up here a little bit like that checkmark. Going to do that. The next thing I'm gonna do is I'm going to draw the bottom part of the face. So I'm going to pull down on an angle which I already kind of more or less habit. It's going to curve slowly and it's gonna go down to the bottom there. And the thing is we animate, they almost always have a pointed chin pulling down here. And then up at this end. As far as the mouth goes, I'm just going to draw a straight line across little bit of a smile there. And I'm gonna draw the fat pad down here, just a line indicating that fat pad. Okay. So let's go to the hair. Now. The hair is going to be like this is the top of his skull. So it's going to be above here a little bit. It's going to draw a little bit above. And could draw the hair going down, remember the direction of the hair. So I'm going to draw the, let's say one hair out here. But then I'm going to pull out remembering that direction. Remembering that direction here. Remember that direction here. I'm going to slightly go down over here like it's, you know, that's the words growing out of curve out here. Curve out here. And I'm kind of arbitrarily picking those where to fly or those out. Before I go further, I'm going to go into the ears. And the ears are usually at the level of the eyes. Some start over here. Circle over here. Was not circle. It's more like a C-shape and a reverse c shape. Now I'm going to go over here, draw what MOFs to remember was talking about before. So it's this notch and then hook. And then another kinda, I don't I guess hook right there, notch hook. And then another one right there. Let me erase these construction lines. I don't know wherever the research. I do have an eraser on the back of his pencil, so we'll do that with this. I usually like using a kneaded eraser though. I usually have one of those around. Can't really find one. Oops. Hopefully this is enough just to get it, just to get out of the way. Don't forget to pause and rewind as you need to. The more you do that, the moral get into your long-term memory and you'll be able to draw this like in a month or something. So let's go to the inside of the hair. I want him to go down, right. So I want the hair to kinda be almost in his face. So I'm going to start over here. Remember the direction it's coming from here. It's gonna go downward. And over here you can just pick big, small, small. And like a lot of this is usually up to you. Just try not to make it to arbitrary, trying to make it look to an even. And you'll be fine. Alright. Pulling over here. One over here. Pulling down here, excuse, he's going to have a little bit of a side burn. All right. Same direction. They're pulled down here, down here. And down here, it's gonna go kind of passed his ears a little bit. And a pull line here for the neck and a line here for the neck. And we'll have a little bit of hair sticking out the back here, just little, little zig-zag patterns right here. All right. And let's draw his eyebrows. I was waiting because I wanted to draw, I know I was going to wait till draws here that I draw his eyebrows. So I'll go over here, make it a solid line. It's going to be underneath that, right? And over here, I'm going to pull another underneath that hair is kind of imagining it and going through. And you have your mail. This is your mail. Anime head, just kind of a generic head. I'm like I said, you can do a lot with it. He can do so much. You can again change hairstyle, changed the expression maybe of the eyes. But let's move on to the female. Okay. Let's move on. All right. Let's move on to the female here. And I'm going to start the same way. Start with a pencil. That makes it a little bit lighter. So you know what I'm doing? It's gonna be circle, straight line down here at the side of the face, career to the side of face. And I'm gonna put them back in this one. And I divide it into thirds. This can be the eyebrow really. So I will be about over here. And over here, I probably can't see this is, you know, I don't know, I'm doing a very, very light, but I'll go through it. So I'm going to start the same way. I'm going to start with the eyelash. Eyelashes here on one side. I'm going to start with the eyelashes on the other side. All right. Now, draw the large eye underneath the large pupil and iris. Kinda the same here. On the other side. Go put the giant highlight line here. I'm sorry, dot there for the pupil and dot here for the pupil. And same thing over here. I'm gonna draw a line at the bottom to add the, that's really for the bottom lid, k. So differences on this one, I'm gonna draw more of an eyelash here, like it's going to flare up at the end. I'm going to flare it up over here a little bit more. Maybe one more rehear am going to pull it down. Okay, remember that? Pull it down from the left, from the eye lesson pulled down. But I'm not going to connect it. Going to go this side and do the exact same thing. Flared up, flared up, flared up. Going to go over here and pulled downward. But not connected. I'm going to thicken it on this side on little bit, just a little bit. I think it should be a little bit thicker. All right. I'm going to draw the eyelid on this one too, just to make it similar, just right here align and not even connecting. Let's draw the nose. Android two nostrils on this one. Okay. Just keep it like normal. I guess I can draw the also the check mark line over here. And then up a little bit. Don't worry, I'll erase those construction lines in a bit and you'll be able to see it better. Let's draw the mouth, Smiley face. And let's draw the edge of the face going down to the pointed chin. I keep forgetting to reiterate that that shin is always pointed. Like pointing. It goes down to like a point at the top over here is going to be a little bit higher than the skull, but I'm gonna make it totally flat. I'll just make a little outside the skull. Before continue that though. I'm going to draw on the inside because their hair is going to be down and she can have bangs. So I'm gonna do that. Same thing, pull down, remember that the direction is down with gravity. Then right here, I'm just kinda arbitrarily picking like big, small, big, just remembering the direction, pulling out of there. In in out right there. And I'm going to pull the leg. She's going to have kind of shortest hair. So I'm going to pull one line over here. Pretty long, right there, covering up the side of her face. Pretty long here as well. It's again, covering up side of her face and draw the neck. Before I forget. I'm here. Neck. And now. Well, you know what, let me let me erase these construction lines so you can see this more clearly. Sorry, it shakes the whole desk when I do that. Oops. All right. It's a lot more clear. So now I'm going to continue to pull in that direction, downward here. I'm going to pull up the sides of her hair. Pull or a here and you pull up. And I let's give her like layer, another little layer we hear with a, maybe a hair in the back as well. And we can draw a lines here. Remember, we're thinking about the direction. The flow is all in the same direction. And her eyebrows are underneath. And they're barely going to show. So I'm going to put them into there. And over here as well. I'm pulling a little bit more on the eyes. I think it needs a little bit more. And actually I might I might thick in the eyelashes here, I think it needs a little more thickness to it. For both. Draw the edges of her mouth here. Think that needs to that too. And I might pull this up a little bit as much as I can in pen. As much as I can do that. I will totally, totally do that. And that is it. That is a female and a male character and other just generic head to kinda get you, get you going. So I mean, it's really up to you, you know, like I get to the again, you can change whatever you want and you can hopefully it'll springboard you into doing stuff. Some people put like massive giant like eyelashes on them. It's really up to you. Okay. So thank you so much. I appreciate it. I'll give you my final thoughts in the next video and the advice of kinda how you can take this and get, get better yourself and kinda learn, kind of memorize all this stuff, put it, make it second nature. All right. 8. Final Thoughts: Well, that is the program. Thank you so much for participating. You are amazing if you made it this point. Amazing, I applaud you. So one thing I want you to do is I want you to practice this. Everything you do has to be practiced. Otherwise you're not going to memorize it. You're not going to put in your long-term memory. You want to do this over and over again. So what I want you to do is I want you to create maybe three heads, right? 23 full-blown heads, heads male or female, and post them and I will reply to them. I'll give you feedback on every single thing you put down. And that is pretty much it. The journey is amazing to do more art stuff. I don't know if your career artist or you're just starting. But it is an amazing journey to just kind of draw. And I wish you very well in your artist's journey and I hope we see each other again. So thank you so much and I will see you soon.
