- How To Draw a face - (With Pencil)
The best way to explain to you how I draw, is to show you!
I've choosen to draw a picture of Alicia Silverstone. It's a really great motiv, because it has a lot of good dark shadows and lot of contrast - in other ways, it's perfect! The greatest pictures is made out of photos with lot of shadows, highlight - contrast.
Shall we begin?

The making of a face(Alicia Silverstone)
This is the picture I want to draw. I've chosen a particular part of her which I will draw.
First you should draw up the lines weakly/faintly.
Place eyes, nose and mouth in the right positions and also the shape of the head is a good idea (you can hardly see the lines on my drawing, but they are there). When you have done that you can start adding shadows on the eyes (or any other place you want, but I always start with the eyes, because they are my favourite part of the face)
The eyes have got some more shading. The shape of the face is beginning to show to the left.
I've drawn up the lines on her hand a bit darker and her eyes a bit deeper (more shadow).
Her nose if beginning to take form and her mouth is also beginning to appear.If you look at the original photo of her and this one (enlarge both of them and compare them). You will see that what I do is to draw exactly what I see.
More shadows added. Still, draw what you see and do it a bit at a time. You need to work with the shadows to make them darker. Don't rush it or you won't get the soft transition. At this time of the drawing I've already used 2 hours!
More shadows around mouth and nose + a little hair.
You see the pattern?
More shadows in the right side of her face and a little more of her hair.
More hair added
I've worked some more on her hand.
I've worked some more on the hair and her hand.
I've worked some more on her hair and a bit on her face!
She's almost done. I only need some shadows on her hand and a bit hair.
Now she is completely finished :)
