Sketch the above shapes to form the brows of Anne Frank. Note that the eyebrow on the right is slightly thicker than the one on the left. Also, pay close attention to the angle at which the brows curve at. Obviously, the right brow is at a lower angle than the other.
Next, draw the eyes below the brows. Notice that the eyes are about as long across as the brows and have eye lids visible above them. Sketch slight bags beneath the eyes as well. Attempt to darken the upper lid of the eyes to accentuate them, and afterwards, sketch the nose. Note the relation of proportion between the nose and eyes. Recall Anne Frank's nose is unusually thin and elongated, as well as having a pointed tip.
Next,sketch the "nasolabial folds," or curved lines beneath the nose to indicate a slight smile. From that point, sketch the outline of the head. Note the edges and lines of the face, as well as the indication of hair at the top of the head. Make sure to be precise when following this step, as sketching a deformed head could result in less likeness of our subject.
Now, sketch the actual mouth. Note that the mouth is like a slightly curved, upside-down triangle. Avoid making the mouth too unnaturally large or petite. Sketch the ear, and note the shape. The ear may seem odd at this stage, yet keep developing your drawing, despite the elfishness of the current ear.
The ear's going to look even more odd now! Sketch the portrayed circles within the actual ear to indicate ear lobes. Develop the hair! Attempt to copy the hair exactly, as I think this particular attribute is what determines a person's individuality. Note that the hair is quite poofy and is even on both sides of the head. Observe the crease above the ear, which is a portion of the side bangs. Make swift, natural strokes with your pencil on the hair to give an impression of individual strands.
Voila! Shading is optional. If you do wish to shade, bear in mind to have a range of values to promote viewers' interest in your drawing. Notice that the hair, brows, and pupils are darkest in the image. The odd circles of the ears have been shaded, in this stage. Also observe that the mouth line at the right of the mouth has been shaded as well.
Good luck, and I hope this tutorial was helpful!
