How to Draw Heads Chapter 2: Picture Perfect Profiles - Men

In the first how to draw male heads tutorial we focused on figuring out how to draw the front of the head. It was a doozy, but in the end you had a solid system that literally gave you the power to draw your character’s head from the ground up.

 

But... When it comes to drawing the same head from the side, it becomes a different ball game. Well… Sort of.

 

Basically, we are going to crack this cookie open with the same method by starting out with a simple blue print, using the sphere and guideline technique. 

 

You see no matter which way you view the human head, whether it’s from the front, the side, the back, top or bottom; the proportions of the head all stay the same. The cool thing about that is a lot of what you learnt from the portrait tutorial can be recycled into this one.

 

Beyond the preliminary stage though, things are gonna get a little wackier. Because although you’ll still be drawing in the cheek bones, jaw and facial features – how you draw them will be completely different..

 

This is the bummer when it comes to drawing heads... Or anything really. Every time you move the head to a different point of view, the way you draw it and its features completely change. This is where most aspiring artists who try to learn how to draw tend to lose their mind figuring this stuff out.


And it truly does want to make your mind explode! Because to pull it off simply, fast and easy every time, it requires a mental shift in the way you think about drawing. Once that shift takes place, everything else becomes a breeze (most of the time).


So here’s the GOOD NEWS! If you aced the first tutorial you are going to have no problems with this one whatsoever. In fact, if you’ve been practicing, you might even feel confident enough to skip over some of the steps you already know.
