Add Eyebrows and Lips Add a line to place the eyebrows, then sketch in the eyebrows. The curve of the brows should follow the curve of the eyes. Add the top and bottom lips.
Add the nose. Working down, the nose bridge should angle in toward the center of the eyes and then angle out from the center to the base of the nose. Add the ear, with the top aligning with the eyebrows and the bottom aligning with the nose's base.
Placing the elements for a side view of a face is similar to that for the front and three-quarters view. As with all drawings, look for proportions and places where the elements align. You may want to examine the proportions with a tool such as a pencil, dividers or a sewing gauge (see page 28).
