7. Detail the face. Use two curved lines that meet at a point to form the eyebrow. Beneath this, draw a “Y” shaped series of curved lines to outline the upper and lower eyelids. Connect the arms of the “Y” with a curved line; make sure the arms extend past the connecting line, which marks the surface of the eyeball. Shade the oval-shaped pupil, and contour the upper lid and the cheek with a curved line. Finally, draw a “C” shaped line alongside the nose, along with a small shaded oval, to indicate the nostril.

Learn More About The Woman Side Profile Drawing

The female form has been a popular subject of both cartoons and fine art since time immemorial. By some estimates, the models pictured in some of the galleries Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET) in New York City are 85 percent female.

This includes classic statues and paintings from ancient Greece, Rome, China, and medieval Europe.

This drawing tutorial features a woman's face in profile, as seen from the side. Profile portraits have also long held popularity.

For example, profiles have been used on coins and pottery since ancient times. Their beauty is in their simplicity, which relies on the bony structures of the face, namely the forehead, nose, and chin.

Before the invention of the camera, profiles called silhouettes could be easily made to recreate the proportions of the face.

Light was cast on the model, and the shadow was sketched. The sketch was usually shaded with no other details filled in.

According to the ancient Roman historian Pliny the Elder, "the first drawing ever made was by a woman named Dibutades, who traced the silhouette of her lover on a wall."
