Hey this series of tutorials has been helping me and a lot of aspiring artist out so for one I thank you for taking the time to make them!

Anyways I was wondering if you could make a tutorial of 3/4 view head as that is a very common angle in manga and drawing in general.

Like Skylar, I must assimilate this.
TXTVira Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2014…
Followed it. Pretty nice way to draw a front view head :D
Tbh drawing the ellipse is way harder than the rest...
I ended up only drawing the left side of the head using the ellipse cause it's totally rigged XD (The one in red)

This is one of the best and simplest tutorials I've seen, good work! 
Sasukokida Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
This actually helps, the face, I have no problems with the head, but the eyes. THE FUCKING EYES. Like, one is slightly lower than the other whenever I draw them, and I just get to pissed off xD But, this is very lovely, your tutorials actually help. c':
ChronoAishiteru Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
If you're doing digital art, you can just copy the right eye that you drew (or left) and flip the eye and re-adjust it to the left, But practicing is also good as well ^_^

Alright, yeah I got to fav this. I always have trouble with the chin and the cheeks. I think that's normal, right? 
christioni96 Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2014
What's the easiest way to draw the chin and cheeks? This has always been the hardest for me.

Have you ever heard of Hetalia? Well, I have man OCs, mainly children, for the fandom. My first OC is called Liesel. She's fourteen, German-Italian, and she has hair very similar to this. Whenever I thought about her appearance she never looked right.

So I search around for a good straight hairstyle and I came across this tutorial.

My first thought was: "You just found Liesel. . ." I was so happy. Whenever I get the chance, I'll draw her using this tutorial!
