No problem kind anon
First thing’s first, you have to specify whether it’s a human, or an animal.
If it’s an animal, I HIGHLY suggest, ESPECIALLY IF IT IS YOUR FIRST TIME DRAWING THIS ANIMAL, that you get a reference photo. I mean it. A wolf and a fox may have similar skeletal structure when it comes to the head, but they DO NOT look exactly the same in the face, whether it be up front or in profile.
If you wing it, you have the issue of it being anatomically incorrect. This can lead to slight confusion as to what it is, to completely throwing off what species it is. You’re not going to draw a pug and give it a german shepherd dog’s face, are you?
If it’s a human, this comes a bit easier. I got how i draw profiles through trial and error, but mostly from
hang on, this may sound insane,
STARING AT PEOPLE.
I mean it. People are the best references. Bored in class? Observe some students nearby you. Does the person have an unfortunate underbite that makes them look like bubba gump? Do they have a massive schnoz that could shelter forest critters? What about their lips? Are they full, thin, a mix, a mismatch? And foreheads/hairlines! Is the forehead obscured by bangs or fringe? If bare, is it smooth, curved, does it jut out? If so, just a tad, or do they look like a neanderthal? What about jawlines and jawbones? Ears? Do they have a double chin? Triple? Benedict Cumberbatch?
I can go on forever.
There’s so much you can learn from just people watching.
See? A quick sketch of a profile, compared to my own face. It generally looks okay by comparison, everything seems to be in the right place.
(I look like i have an underbite in the picture, but that’s because i’m sticking out my bottom jaw. i have rubber bands in for my braces and that makes it a little less sore. I actually have a MASSIVEJOHNEGBERTWORTHY overbite)
But you can spice up the profile by adding some details. For example, via tracing my nose, it goes down a bit and has a slight crook:
And you are, by no means, limited by style. If you’re going for a less realistic, and more stylized look, GO RIGHT A FUCKING HEAD
blah blah i should go to bed and work on stuff i’m spacing out and i forgot where i was going with this
does that help?
I just need to suddenly grow a vagina
and start PMS just to let out all these emotions safely and properly
and no i hate compliments, I never get them anywhere except tumblr, and each one makes my face redder than a tomato. the ‘let it happen’ makes it more like verbal rape.

I couldn’t decide, so here’s Isaac raging at/playing with a pizza box.
Sabes que los niños serán muy inteligentes porque hablamos en español y ingles. Pero no puedo decir nada sobre sus caras porque John tiene los peores dientes y Majora lleva una máscara todo el tiempo.
Tonight we’ll be having soup.
i told you not to swear in front of the kids, sugarplum
go wash out your mouth with soap. and while you’re at it, wash out our daughter’s mouth, she said OTP. We can’t have any of that shipping getting to her head.
It’s not so much going to be “vent art” as it is
“wow i’m stressed and a lot of fun events happened in the period of 48 hours I MUST DRAW THEM” art.
Honey, I told you not to be so formal! Go wash up, and supper will be ready before sundown, dear. The children are outside playing with the neighborhood kids and will be back before you know it.
hello my darling husband, I made you pornographic images of our ‘sonas together, since i’ve been lacking in the sexual department.
