Join Ben Bishop for an in-depth discussion in this video Nose and mouth options, part of Drawing Good and Evil Comic Book Characters.
- Now that the eyes are in place,…it's time to start focusing…on the other aspects of the face.…More specifically, the nose and the mouth for now.…Just like the eyes, there are tons of different options…for the nose and the mouth.…So, right off the bat, just so we can stay organized,…let's make a new layer…and we'll call it: bad nose mouth.…So that way we know that's separate.…So again, there's all these different options.…You want to make sure that you're choosing one…that works best with what you already have in place…on your character profile or in your head.…
If we were to draw this ancient vampire…snake-worshipping sorcerer with…a big old man nose...…Sure it's old, but does it really adhere…to the other aspects in our cheat sheet there?…Not really, it's very distracting, a little too silly.…So a lot of these different options…you'll see me buzzing through, are just like:…What works?…What doesn't work?…What's too silly?…What's not silly enough?…Figure out what you're aiming for.…
Start there and then start tweaking it.…
