Step 8

Now for the eyelashes: Draw one eyelash with bezier tool. Fill it with #000000 (black). Copy the eyelash to make "many" eyelashes. Keep changing its size after copying so that they do not look similar.


Step 9

Now start drawing the eye on the right side. Copy the eyelashes adjust them. Draw the eyeball of the right eye too.


Step 10

Now we need to shade the left eye. Draw a huge shape surrounding the left eye. Fill it with #636363. Apply transparency. To place it behind, Press Shift+pgdown, then press Ctrl+pgup. You will get it in the correct place i.e. just above the face.


Step 11

Now we have to shade the right eye. With bezeir start drawing the outline of the nose and enclose the space so that the right eye and cheek comes within the enclosed shape.


Step 13

Select the recently drawn shape, press shift and select the face. Click intersect. We will use this intersection process in coming steps too.


Step 14

Fill this shape with #000000 (Black) color and remove the outline. Apply transparency as shown.


Step 15

Use the same intersection process to further shade the eye. Fill the shape with #696969 and apply transparency.


Step 16

Draw a small shape below the right eye as shown in the image. This is for highlighting the cheek. Fill it with #D9D9D9. Apply transparency.


Step 17

Step 18

Draw the nostrils. Fill the color #4F4F4F


Step 19

Start shading the nose. Fill this shape with #E9E9E9.


Step 20

Apply transparency

Reduce the size of the shape drawn in the previous step. Fill it white color. Apply transparency in opposite direction i.e. from bottom to top

Few more highlights and the nose is complete.

Remove outlines. Make it transparent.


Step 39

Reduce its size. Change the color to #AEAEAE. Now the face is complete.


Step 40

Similarly you can draw the neck and shade it.


Step 41

Draw the hairs using bezier. You have to a single hair and copy it to make many. Change their sizes so they look different (just like we did the eyelashes).


Step 42

I did not want to draw ear so I here is a headphone. ;)

Here is a clip of the face with no transparency and un-removed outlines.
