How to Draw an Emo Face, Emo Faces

Step 1.

When drawing emo faces, it's very important you have a diverse knowledge on the various hair types. This style doesn't consist of JUST a long fringe to the side. There's lots of other styles, like: (Top) Very teased hair at the sides, back, and front, turning normal once reached to the ends. (Left Side) Teased hair with raccoon tails *which vary in diverse types of neon colors* extensions. (Right Side) Short hair with scattered bangs and hair accessories, most common in the emo style. (Bottom) Short hair with double sided fringes. The hair spikes in the back, and streaks down normally at the sides. Experiment with different styles and see what you end with!

Step 2.

This is an important part for drawing any type of face, especially emo styled ones. The further you draw the nose and lips from the eyes, the older and dark the character will appear. Notice how this female looks rather fixated on the viewer. Also, by drawing eyes larger, and having quite a distance from the nose - mouth from the eyes, the more fragile characters will appear. Mix and match!

Step 3.

Draw the head and then draw in the facial guidelines like you see here.

Step 4.

After you sketch out the shape structure of this emo face and the ear, and neck. Next, begin drawing out her hairstyle which is as you can see very puffy. The bangs are semi long, and they usually cover one side of the face. Draw out the back of the head, and then move to step four.

Step 5.

Now that the face, head, and hair is drawn, you can begin sketching out the other pieces of her style. This is the thick strands and sketch in detailing at the root of her head. You can also draw in a beret if you like.

Step 6.

Using the facial guidelines that you drew in step one, draw out the thick bold eye with the top lashes being the thickest. Draw the small nose, mouth, and eyebrow too.

Step 7.

Draw in the eyeball, and then sketch in the detailing of the inner ear. You can sketch in some more of the nose, and then draw the bottom lip, and lip rings.

Step 8.

You are ready to draw out her neck, shoulders and then her top. Sketch in the thick collar and add some detailing lines. Erase the lines and shapes that you drew in step one to clean up the drawing.

Step 9.

Look how nice she looks now that you are all done. Color her in and you just learned how to draw an emo face.
