5. Detail the hair around the forehead, erasing as necessary. Draw long, curved lines that form a rough “M” shape above the face. One leg of the “M” should overlap the shoulder. Draw short, curved lines across the humps of the “M” to give depth to the hair. Extend a curved line from the face to meet the long leg of the “M” at a point, forming a tendril of hair.

8. Draw the girl’s eyes. Use a series of curved and straight lines to draw the triangular eyebrows. Indicate the top of the nose by placing a short line at the inner tip of each brow. Then, use three lines to form an incomplete double-teardrop shape beneath each brow. These are the eyes. Draw three consecutively smaller circles in each, and shade between the two smallest, indicating the pupil. Draw a curved line above each eye, connected to it on the outer edge, to form the eyelids.

Learn More About The Woman's Face Drawing

Faces are an important part of human society and psychology. A primary function of the face is to convey emotion.

Almost universally, a smile denotes pleasure and tears indicate sadness. Recognizing emotion on the faces of others allows us to interact with them in meaningful ways.

In fact, there is a region of the brain called the Fusiform face area that is devoted to the recognition of faces.

Interestingly, social people experience more responses in this brain area when viewing strangers than do shy people, and attractive faces cause more brain activity than do unattractive faces.
