have the eyes, nose and mouth of our Woody Allen
caricature drawn. Let's go ahead and draw the left jaw
line. See the little jowl hanging off Woody's jaw? Draw
that in, it's another "u" shape, but smaller and
narrower. Then continue up the side of the face drawing
the jaw line. Stop about parallel with the eye. Make the
jaw line one continuous line, don't sketch. That goes
for all the contour lines you'll draw, by the way.
Just guess at how far out to draw the jaw, Woody has a
narrow face, so making the angle of the jaw line too
steep would be better than making it too shallow an
angle, thus making him look fat. In the drawing, I've
added some detail like the laugh line, another shape
defining the jowl, and some shading.
Let's draw the other side of his face. I find it easier,
drawing the right side of the face, to work from the
temple down to the chin. That's the opposite direction
than the left side of the face where we started at the
chin and went up to the temple. On the right side of his
face, I see three "bumps". Starting at the temple, I see
the bump that his cheek bone creates, then below that,
his cheek puffs out a bit, then below that there's
another bulge that encloses the mouth. So on this side
of the face, you might draw three lines, one for each
bump. With that side drawn, you can go ahead and throw
in some shading indicating the cheek and jowl. Remember,
the angle of these lines that mark the right side of his
face will be a steeper angle than the other side of the
face. Now with most of the face drawn, you can see that
his nose looks HUGE. When you first drew it, it didn't
look that big, did it?
Let's begin to draw the upper part of the head and the
hair. Let's give Woody a big ol' melon and draw the dome
of his head. Do just that, draw a dome from temple to
temple that is just about as high as eyes to chin is
long. This will place the eyes pretty much in the middle
of the head where they belong. The dome won't be
perfectly round because you should account for the bumps
that the contour of his hair will make.
Draw the outside contour of the hair
Now let's draw in Woody's hair. You can skimp on the
hair to give him a big forehead. Draw the outside contour lines
of the hair first, the draw the inner contour of the
hair. Drop in a little bit of shading in the hair. Shade in the direction the hair is going to
make it look most like hair. Leave some white areas in
the hair to denote highlights in the hair.
Draw the ears in now.
You should draw them just as you see them, but draw them
Dumbo-size big. Draw the contour in first,
starting a little above the eye, and drawing an ear
shape down to about the bottom of the nose. Then fill in
the detail of the ear. You can't see Woody's right ear
in the photo, but since we're making his ears big, go
ahead and draw a hint of a right ear.
