Gathering the Supplies
Before you can begin drawing a face with hair, you’ll need to have all the supplies ready. You’ll need a pencil, a sheet of paper, and an eraser. You can use a variety of different pencils; choose one that feels comfortable for you to draw with. A sharpener might also be useful for keeping your pencils sharp and ready to use. You can use any kind of paper you prefer, but a thicker paper will be easier to draw on. Additionally, it may be helpful to have a picture of a face with hair as a reference. Once you’ve gathered all the supplies, you’re ready to start drawing.
You can also use other materials such as charcoal, pastels, and watercolors. If you choose to use these, however, you’ll need to make sure you have the right kind of paper to use them on.
Outlining the Face
The first step in drawing a face with hair is to outline the face itself. Start by lightly sketching an oval shape for the head. This doesn’t have to be perfect, as you can adjust it later. Then, draw a line from the top of the oval to the bottom. This will be the center line of the face. From here, you can draw the eyes, nose, and mouth in their respective places. Make sure to draw lightly, as you may need to adjust the features later.
You can also draw a few lines to indicate where the chin, cheeks, and forehead will go. This will help you when you begin adding details to the face.
Adding Facial Features
Once you have the basic outline of the face, it’s time to add the facial features. Start by drawing the eyes, nose, and mouth. Make sure to draw them in the right proportions to the face. Once you have the features in place, you can add details such as eyelashes and eyebrows. You can also add wrinkles and other details to make the face look more realistic.
Drawing hair is also a part of adding facial features. You can choose to draw realistic-looking strands of hair, or you can go for a more abstract approach.
Coloring the Face
Once you have the face drawn, you can begin adding color. Use either colored pencils or markers to add color to the features of the face. You can also add shading for a more realistic look.
For coloring the hair, you can use either colored pencils or markers. Make sure to use different shades of the same color to give the hair more depth and texture. You can also add highlights and shadows to give the hair more depth.
Once you have the face and hair colored, it’s time to add the finishing touches. You can use either a white colored pencil or a white gel pen to add highlights to the hair and face. This will give the drawing a more polished look.
You can also add more details to the face, such as freckles or a beauty mark. Additionally, you can use an eraser to add texture to the hair.
Bringing it All Together
Drawing a face with hair can seem intimidating at first, but with a little practice, anyone can do it. Start by gathering all the supplies you’ll need and lightly sketching the outline of the face. Then, add the facial features and color the face and hair. Finally, add the finishing touches to give the drawing a more polished look.
With patience and practice, you’ll be able to draw faces with hair that look realistic and beautiful. Drawing faces with hair is a great way to show your creativity and express yourself. So, grab your supplies and start drawing!
