Learn Portrait Drawing – Stage Three

Though the portrait drawing is not an easy venture, the level of patience and constant efforts pay a rich dividend. 

After completing the Stage Two, you can now proceed on to draw the whole portrait. The residual features of the portrait are to be inserted into frame. Here you will consider the shape of ears, the size of chin, and the position of hair. 

Starting from hair you can slip down up to shoulders. If the person being portrayed has long hair; then make it sure about the position of hair. It would be advisable to decide whether you are to arrange some hair on one of the shoulders or not. It depends up on the choice of the person whose portrait you are making. The hair lines can be straight or curly. If some hair is drawn on one of the shoulders, especially the right one, it would create a strong visual effect. 

In this third stage, you are to take care about measurements of all the features of the face.

This stage would finalize the outer boundaries of your portrait; and after doing that it would be difficult to change a major part of the same. 

Once you have done complete outline of the portrait, just try putting some ‘line drawing work’ on head area and the hair falling on shoulder. From this stage you are going to the final drawing of your portrait. In the fourth stage you would require making the portrait more identifiable and realistic one.
