Art Video of the Week - Drawing Faces

If you're not familiar with Mary Doodles, I highly, highly recommend that you spend some time looking through her Youtube channel. The information there is very valuable and she is always entertaining. I'm a huge fan of just watching her work on her speed drawings, they're mesmerizing.

Today, I thought I'd post one her videos from a couple of years ago on basic facial proportions:

As Mary notes, faces come in all shapes and sizes, but the proportions here provide a good basic start point for experimentation. The style she is using here is cartoonish, but that is also a foundational start point if more realism is your thing.
