Sketching Different Head fllANf

The principal parts of the head are the skull and the jaw. The shape of the skull is a globe—sort of. Actually, it's a globe with the sides lopped off, because the sides of a head aren't perfectly round either.

Extend a line down the center of the face, then make a few marks along that line to indicate where the hairline, the eyes, the bridge of the nose, the mouth, and the chin will go.

By varying the distances among these marks, you can create different characters. Another method for inventing new characters is to change the overall shape of the head.

In every comic book or cartoon illustration of the head, the hairline, eyes, nose, mouth, and chin are drawn on different planes. Keep each feature fixed and locked in its own position and the face will read with clarity.
