      Drawing a Woman's Face

      I need help... every time I try to draw a woman, she comes out looking like a drag queen version of the girl I'm trying to draw. It's like a woman's form and clothing but a man's face. If I were drawing Chyna from the WWF it wouldn't be a problem, but I want to try and draw normal women. Any tips on drawing women's faces? Proportions? Differences from a man's face?

      http://www.deviantart.com/#catpath=r...natomy&order=9 this may help. There are a lot of books on human anatomy that can help you out. Comparing the trademarks of a male vs female face, with the two next to each other, may help.

      Well, I draw anime stuff, but the way I draw people's faces is by starting out with a circle, then drawing a sort of V shape under it. Then I add guide lines and start drawing the eyes, mouth, nose, etc...

      Bigger lips. More eye lashes. Smaller eyebrows. Smaller nose. Makeup. Cheek bones?

      It is a lot easier to draw men for me, too. They often have more wrinkles, angles, and facial hair (hopefully more facial hair ) When you draw a woman, remember less is more. Keep just a hint of a smooth, gradient on her skin, draw attention away from the nose, and overemphasize her eyes. I don't mean you should draw her eyes all huge like an anime. Just place focus on them with sharper detail, a more central role in the composition, or a sparkle.
