STEP 1. The red circles are just pointing out the parts of the face that we will focus on. The thick eyebrows, the nose, and the teeth. Take characteristics of a persons face that is most dominate and exaggerate them in the drawing.   STEP 2. The circle in blue is what we will pay little attention to. The eyes, and no lip are the minor but important parts of the face that also needs to be addressed.   STEP 3. Here is just some examples on a few caricature faces that I drew. All but one are random faces and if you notice Justin Bieber is to your left. Examples of eyes and eyebrows are also included.   STEP 4. Make a large oval shape for the elongated head, and then draw in the face guides like you see here.   STEP 5. Using the facial guidelines you drew in step one, start sketching out the lining for the eyes and nose. Since the nose is going to be over exaggerated, be sure to draw the tip long and wide.   STEP 6. Just above the top eye lid line, draw out the blocky brows and color them in solid. When that's done you can finish the eyes by drawing the bottom lid, and drawing out the eyeball. Draw the nostrils and be sure to draw them in a flaring manner.   STEP 7. Add some detailing to the eyes by sketching out the actual crease for the lid, then color in the pupils and in this case my brother has a beauty mark on his cheek so draw in the mark like so.   STEP 8. We will now start working on the lower portion of the face. Draw out the defined frown lines that start at the base of the nostrils, and then swirl those lines outward. Draw in his mouth which should also be wide and over sized. The top lip is very thin, and the bottom lip is just a bit thicker. Draw out the big teeth, and then add some detailing or definition to the chin and the clef above the lip just under the middle part of the nose.   STEP 9. Sketch out the ears like so, but make sure when you draw them out add detailing inside of the ears. So far you guys are doing great, just keep it up because you're almost done.   STEP 10. Sketch out the shape of the face and head like so, and if you notice the face is stretched out or in an oblong structure. Draw the hair line for his shaved head, and then add some definition to the cheeks.   STEP 11. For the last drawing step all you have to do is draw out the chin hair, and then draw out the neck, shirt collar, and some of the upper part of his chest. Erase the lines and shapes that you drew in step one to clean up the drawing.   STEP 12. In the end your drawing should come out looking like the one you see here. Now take what you've just learned and try drawing your mother, brother, sister, father uncle, aunt, cousin, or friend. Hope you had fun, come back and join me again real soon.   Step 1. Step 2.
