Profile : Step 1- the oval

Draw a circle. The circle is the foundation of the head for any veiwpoint. It doesn't need to be a perfect circle like this. A basic ovoid shape will do nicely.

Profile : Step 2- the chin

Add the chin. The chin will come down from the center point of the outside edge of the circle to about half that length below the bottom edge of the circle. The Jawline should come back towards the center of the bottom edge of the circle as shown here.

Profile : Step 3-Facial Divisions

Split the face shape in half vertically and horizontally. These axis lines are the ear line (vertical) and the eyeline (horizontal).
