There is this book that a bunch of people are talking by Stephenie Meyer called ‘The Host’. Yes the author is the same person who wrote the Twilight series, but this time she is stepping away from vampires and werewolves to move onto alien beings. I have not yet picked up the book, and to tell you the truth I probably will never. Not because I don’t want to, it’s because I don’t have that kind of leisure time to sit back and read. The Host is about this alien race that takes over Earth. The aliens are called ‘Souls’, and they believe that humans are too violent. These Souls take over the human body and become within the human which is why the book is called Host. The main character of the book series is Melanie Stryder and she is the protagonist of The Host. She is basically a girl that runs away from the Seekers because she knows that these creatures will take over her body and she will become no more. Drawing Melanie Stryder shouldn't be too complex, so I’m confident that you will have no troubles with recreating this face from The Host.

STEP 3.

Using the facial guidelines, begin drawing out her innocent looking eyes, followed by the eyebrows which I've drawn in a hair like manner instead of colored in solid style. Add the crease and some of the nose bridge like so as well on the sides of each eye.

Lastly, all you have to do is draw the length of her long full hair. Add the parted line at the top of her head which is also called the roots, then sketch in some texture lines that will make her hair look like hair. Erase your mistakes then you're done.
