A BIT MORE ABOUT THE FACE SEEN IN PROFILE:


AHAHAH OH GOD WHY AM I DOING THIS?!?
Nah nevermind, it's 01:09 AM here and the train home doesn't go until 03:40 AM so I just wanted to do this tutorial which I sort of promised people.

I realised it's better to just break this all down into several parts, even though I wished I could put all my thoughts into one deviation...

Enjoy! I hope you guys learn something from this.

Yes I know I forgot to mention ears and the neck. This is all pretty much improvised believe it or not

thankyou.  i don't necessarily draw manga [however i was gripped by akira and i love a lot of manga art and there is no turning back the clock of how it has impacted the west by now, for sure]  - but i missed all of the classes on how to mathematically plot out a human figure [early 90's] and i am tired of wingin' it. my classmate who graduated [i did not] went on to teach the very class i missed each friday - for more than a decade.  he has retired and is still professional artist.  he still draws cartoons his way- that is his job- but he can "do this".  i have to fight to keep from procreating "precious moments exploding into for better or for worse on a sick bed of abstract maybe that is hair and how long will i ride on the coat-tails of sam kieth though i love his art so much?"  i do have a style - or i did -  but it would be better if it had some sort of girth and a real system behind it.  my gesture drawings- or sketches are decent and piled high to our 500 square foot ceiling dating back to a president i do not want to even mention and many on this very art board were not even born when this one was in office [i was in high school] - however without a system it is pretty difficult to finish any project, so i feel pretty low about this.  

i actually would like to draw manga now - or my own representation of it how it has impacted me - the design in manga is intoxicating.  good manga artists still know "where things should go" in order to make "these adjustments".  they also understand color intrinsically - another thing i do not understand at all.

anyhow-  i will be looking into all of your tutorials.  this is really great.  thanks again - srry for long comment.

Thank you for this! I've found many "tutorials" that showed you how/where the guidelines worked but none of them explained it quite so clearly. :) I've been wanting to create a style of my own that partly anime but leaning more on the realistic side. :D
