Drawing faces at an angle by moni158 Drawing faces at an angle by moni158
Drawing faces and drawing faces at an angle by popular demand :meow:

This is my manga/anime style of drawing and obviously styles and proportions will differ from person to person. but if you find these tips helpful feel free to apply them to your own style.

:iconwthplz:( this was so hard to make ).....
drawing faces at an angle can be difficult, but there are a few tricks to make it easier.

Make a grid on you initial sketch like shown above, divide it up half way for the eyes, half way between the rest is the nose and half way between that and the rest of the chin lies the mouth, of course all faces aren't the same and you can change the bottom two a bit, but make sure the eyes are always half way.

Doing this isn't just good for proportion it also shows you where the eyes nose and mouth will go when you change the angle. Remember that they are not straight lines, they curve with the shape of the face.

Foreshortening is also very important when drawing the face leaning forward, backwards etc. Whats furthest away will appear more compact and closer together/smaller while things closer will be bigger and further apart.

From the profile the eyes generally start where the mouth ends and the eyes are where the bridge of the nose connect with the forehead. The ears are in line with the nose and eyes and the neck joins the jaw a little bit back from the eyes.
