How to Portrait drawing step by step
The first and I replicate the very first thing I want you to do is to think of the face as a substantial oval and develop 3 basic lines: The eye line initially, the mouth line 2nd and the nose line as the 3rd one.  This is important and it is also crucial that you trace (emotionally) these lines in the order I have actually suggested. The aspect is due to the fact that your eyes may deceive you and own you to acquire inaccurate portions if you do not follow this guideline.

Developing the mouth prior to the nose helps to enforce a down limitation to the extension of the facial functions. However, do not get sidetracked and keep going.
