How to Draw a Symmetrical Face in Pencil Girl Version

symface

Hey there! I’m Pamela and today I’m going to show you how I draw symmetrical faces. This methodĀ is great for people drawing comics, cartoons, or even realistic faces. Go ahead and grab a piece of paper, a pencil, an eraser, and a ruler and lets get started.

In the video you will notice that I’m not giving you exact measurements on how far each feature on the face should be from one another. This is because each face is unique. I am giving a generalization of where the eyes, nose, and mouth should fall in relation to one another. Hopefully, this will give you enough information to go off and try to draw a symmetrical, or even semi-symmetrical faceĀ of your own. (The one I drew isn’t even PERFECTLY symmetrical.)

As an extra little note, I wanted to add that you do not have to make the eyes as big as I did. If you’re trying to draw a realistic looking female face, it may actually be in your best interests to draw the eyes a little smaller. When I draw, I personally like to make my female characters have larger, doll like eyes. Basically, what I’m saying is when it comes down to the smaller details, draw to your tastes.

Thanks for watching this week’s tutorial. If you want me to draw, paint, or create something in particular, please leave a comment below and tell me what it is!

See you next week,
