this adorable person asked me over at deviantart to show him how i plan my faces while sketching. and my answer is; i don’t! haha, as you can see i just kind of sculpt the face into something that i like.
i start off with a basic face shape, and later adds just small guidelines, such as where the nose might go and so furth. there are no rules, and even if you dislike the placement of something in the face you can always “sculpt” it into a more suitable shape.
i know this is more than you asked for, but i just got stuck in the colouring sorryyy! /and this probably suck anyway, but this is kind of how my thought process goes while drawing/
