How to draw a 3/4 view faces in 9 steps:
The shape of the 0Ellipse0is composed of two equal-sized circles, one on top of the other. Once you’ve mastered the technique, you can scale it up or down to any size you need.
Step 2: Partitions & New Centerline
Draw a horizontal line in the middle of the ellipse (where the two circles meet) and divide each half into three equal parts. The closer the Centerline lies to the outline, the closer we get to the profile view.
Step 3: Draw the nose and the face contour
For the 3/4 point of view, drawing the face contour correctly is critical. The line starts straight for the forehead and goes in at Eye-level, forming a small triangular shape, with the most bulged out section u2013 the cheekbone u2013 right beneath it.
Step 4: Draw the jawline
The chin takes up the space between the two Centerlines, and then the line flows up smoothly. Be careful with the angle of the jawline; if it’s too soft, the face of your model will become chubby as it follows the ellipse. A 45 degree angle is what you’re looking for.
Step 5: Mark the eyes and the mouth
The eyes and mouth should be about a quarter of the Eye level width, with the mouth shape not going past the original Centerline. The eyes should be on top of the Eye-level line, and the left eye should be covered by the nose, making it appear smaller.
Step 6: Draw the face features
Divide the mouth ellipse guide into two halves: upper and lower lip, and use the new Centerline to find the mouth’s middle point. Draw the right eye as usual, but make sure you have the same pupils and iris size as the other eye!
Step 7: Draw the remaining details
Mark the right side cheekbone and the skull. Finish the skull before it touches the jawline. This space is needed for the neck. Add brows in your preferred shape right above the eyes, below the eyes, and on either side of the nose.
Step 8: Draw the neck and the ear
Necks are drawn longer and slimmer in fashion design sketches than in real life, but they still need to be in proportion to the rest of the head, so pay close attention to it. A poorly drawn neck can ruin the impression of the beautiful face you’ve created. The shape is not a half-moon u2013 it is irregular, with the top part wider than the lower.
Step 9: Customize your model
