So are you ready to jump in to your first lesson?
Today's lecture focuses on drawing women's faces from the front. We'll be looking at how to use simple measurements and guidelines for great balanced results every single time!
Remember, the guidelines and finished illustrations from the lesson are all available for download as PSD, PNG and PDF files, so be sure to download your preferred format and trace, copy, or otherwise use as a reference as you follow along.
Note: In the lessons, we emphasise that certain guidelines should be "exactly" equal, often visually marked with two hash symbols. However, our pros sometimes adjust these for character-specific nuances.
The emphasis on "exact" measurements is to provide beginners with a clear starting point. We understand that being told “about” or "approximately" can be confusing!
While you're developing your skills and learning to balance your work, try to be precise. As you gain confidence, you can start to tweak and personalise your character's balance like our pros do.

Does this sound like you?
☑️ I often struggle with putting down my first lines, or feel overwhelmed looking at an empty canvas
☑️ I find it hard to transfer the awesome artistic ideas in my head into actual pictures on the page
☑️ I find myself frustrated by stationary tutorial images... Hey! How do you expect me to draw that if I didn't see how you drew the lines?!
☑️ I'm a digital artist, but I only really use the brush tool, and draw everything on one layer. I want to understand how to use the tools more efficiently!
