There will be lots more coming soon. This video will give you step by step instruction on how to draw the facial expression of grief...or maybe this dude is just sneezing. Be sure to pause the video at the end of each step. Lets begin.
Step 1: Draw the 2 sets of symmetrical shapes. The eyebrow shapes resemble levers from pinball machines. The eyes are shut and the eyelids are folded tightly around the eyeball. The two sets of eyelashes have come together. Be sure to notice the lines around each eye and the two lines coming together in between the eyebrows.
Step 2: Add the two nostrils and the wrinkle lines around the mouth. Notice that the nose is foreshortened because the head is tilted backwards. In other words the nostrils are closer to the eyes and more rounded than when you look at a face straight on. Do not be tempted to put a line at the bottom of the nose. In this pose, that line does not exist.
Step 3: Draw in the mouth. Notice that it is comprised of four distinct shapes- the upper lip, the upper teeth, the inner mouth and the tongue. When people show the most common facial expression for grieving........ or sneezing, their bottom lip wraps around their bottom teeth. So remember, draw what you see here, rather than what you know to be true in a calm facial expression.
Step 4: Draw in the hair. This shape can vary a lot, so either draw what you see or be creative.
Step 5: Draw in the bottom half of the face and the ears. Notice that the ears are even with the mouth because the head is tilted back.
