Description

So, you have been searching for ways to draw pretty comic faces. You can stop. You found it. This course teaches everything you need to know in order to draw pretty faces for comics books, or just pretty faces in general. 

This course is created for the beginner, but even an advanced comic artist can get something from it. It is taught in an easy to grasp way. I teach the hows and whys to draw things, which is really important and lacking in most "how to draw" courses.

Each lesson tackles one concept, then gives an exercise to do so you not just get the concept, but get better at drawing pretty faces. 

Check out some of the free lessons. You will love them.

How to draw pretty faces at an angle
12 Lectures 01:40:08

This is the most difficult view to learn to draw from imagination or from reference, in my opinion. This is the full quarter view. Often in comics, this view is used. It is the view you will be drawing most often. It is not easy to learn, so take your time. You will probably feel like your quarter view faces will ever look pretty. Stick with it. You will get there.

In this lesson, we are going to learn how to draw pretty comic noses from a quarter turn. I think noses are actually easier to draw in this view than in front view. Hardest view for noses is side view for me.

Lips are the hardest part of the face to draw. I see so many nice looking faces from my students and elsewhere online, but the lips look weird or just not good looking. They are even harder in quarter views, so don't feel bad if it takes a while to learn this part. Stick with it. You will get there.

Art Instructor-Comic Artist-writer

I'm a best selling author on Amazon for "How to Draw Awesome Figures."

I studied art at different schools, one of them being a community college in San Jose, Ca. Over the years, subjects in art finally clicked. I teach these subjects in ways that make it easy to grasp. It's hard to brag about myself, but students have written me emails saying how they have learned more from me than they did in art schools, art schools such as Academy of Arts in San Franscico. That blew my mind because it's supposed to be a great school.

I'm also a writer that has sold novels. http://masteredit.info
