Faces are arguably the hardest parts to draw while making art. On the other hand though, if you master drawing faces, you’re good to go. If you look at most sketches available on IG, most of them only have the face of the character. So learning face anatomy is very important for drawing well. So let’s discuss Anime Face Anatomy today.
Welcome back to another one of our anime art tips articles. Today we are talking about Anime Face Anatomy. If you are a budding artist, it is absolutely necessary to learn the proper anatomy and proportions of faces. So I’ll be listing a few videos to help you out with just that. After going through the videos and with a little practice, I am sure you’ll be much better at drawing faces than before. So let’s get started.
