Drawing Heads and Necks Tutorial by HJWinn Drawing Heads and Necks Tutorial by HJWinn
I realized while doing this one that most of these tutorials are really just the little tricks I've figured out that help me put things together - so I hope they help you, too!  

The planes for this one are super simple - generally I just draw the edges of the forehead, then the cheek lines to the chin and the mouth. Those lines defining the cheek are so quick and useful I can't even.

I know I didn't get into much detail with positioning the neck but that would have required EVEN MORE LENGTH. 

I feel like going back over these someday and tightening them all up, but for now, enjoy. Hope they help bring you many splendid portraits!

Thanks so much for this tutorial. Putting the face in simple planes like that is the most helpful trick for understanding shading that I've ever seen. :)
