How to Draw The Head In Perspective
The Front, Side, and U00be views show us a clear layout of the head’s proportions, while the Portrait and Profile views show us the shape of the skull, jaw, eyes, nose, mouth, and ears all within a flat, two-dimensional perspective.
The key is to stop thinking about the head as a flat, 2D image and instead imagine it as a 3D Object that can be turned in space and looked at from any angle. Drawing the head from a dynamic, three-dimensional perspective allows us to work out the position and rotation of the head.
The Eye Line, just beneath the Brow Line, allows us to determine how long the bottom half of the head should be. In a foreshortened perspective, however, the length of that line will likely become skewed, and the shape of the face itself will distort to some extent depending on the perspective you’re viewing it from.
