Fashion Faces Tutorial 1: Drawing Front View Female

Today we will dive into how to draw a cool fashion head.
Although the clothes on the figure are the main element in the fashion illustration, the head can give that twist we need to make our illustration stand out.

Find below my process:

  • Begin drawing an oval.
  • Track a vertical line in the middle.
  • Now three lines horizontally:
    the eyes line
    the nose line
    the mouth line
  • Start shaping the face
  • Add ears from the nose line to the eyes line
  • Sketch the eyebrows, the bottom of the nose, the eyes and the mouth
  • Now add some glamours fashion features, thinking about makeup and the feeling you want to obtain. Is she a boss girl? A model? Think about her personality and make it alive.

Now my last, but maybe most important tip: exercise a lot and learn perfectly how to draw fashion heads with a classic style.
Once you master the basics, you will be able to find your personal style

The making of "Libertè d'amour"

*post in italano dopo quello inglese

Here we are!
Finally it's ready!
What am I talking about?!
But, of course, of the making of "Liberté d'Amour", my most recent illustration of the Gotcha! Collection.

In the last few weeks, I have been busy with the reopening of my online store, putting aside other activities such as in fact the update of my YouTube channel.

Due to the icy weather and my big eighth-month pregnancy belly, I spent the weekend at home cuddled by my beloved fiancè and wrapped by cats and blankets, editing this new video.

You can find Limited Edition Prints of 25 here, don't miss yours!


Ci siamo!
Finalmente è pronto!
Di cosa parlo?!
Ma, naturalmente, del making of de Liberté d'Amour, la mia più recente illustrazione della Gotcha! Collection.

Nelle ultime settimane sono stata impegnatissima con la riapertura del negozio online, trascurando altre attività come, per l'appunto, l'aggiornamento del mio canale YouTube.

Complice il tempo glaciale del weekend e la mia pancia da ottavo mese di gravidanza, ho trascorso il fine settimana a casa viziata dal mio amorevole compagno e avvolta tra gatti e coperte, completamente dedicata all'editing di questo nuovo video.

Potete trovare le stampe in Edizione Limitata di 25 qui, approfittatene!
