2. Next, draw the guidelines on the face.

There are two ways you can draw guidelines for the face. One is to use a ruler. The other is not to use a ruler. If you use a ruler, you will want to mark off spaces beside your drawing that are the same size and height as your drawing. This will help you segment off the sections of the face as you draw.

If you decide not to use the ruler method, you can draw the sections beginning with the center line in the middle and "A, B, C" on the top and "1, 2, 3" on the bottom to serve as a guideline for the facial proportions.
