In this lesson, we'll look at how to draw a face and we'll cover several approaches. We'll begin by exploring the process of drawing a face from the frontal view. In these series of steps, we'll cover the general locations of the facial features and learn a few proportional comparisons that you can use to ensure that your facial features are in the correct location. Many people make mistakes when drawing faces because they don't fully understand facial proportions. Proportion refers to the relationship in size and placement between one object and another. There are many formulas that one can adapt to draw the facial features in the correct location.
