have you ever wanted to look like a cat? well, now you can! with this easy tutorial, you’ll be able to draw whiskers on your face in no time.
Decide on the placement of your whiskers.
When deciding where to place your whiskers, it is important to consider the shape of your face. For example, if you have a round face, you will want to place the whiskers further down on the cheeks to create the illusion of a more oval-shaped face. Whereas, if you have an oval-shaped face, you can place the whiskers wherever you like. Trust your instinct!
Once you have decided on the placement of your whiskers, use a pencil to lightly sketch in the whiskers. Start with the longest whiskers and then add in shorter whiskers around them. Remember, less is more! You can always add more later if you feel like you need them.
When you are happy with the placement of your whiskers, use a black pen or marker to fill them in. Start with the longest whiskers and then fill in the shorter ones around them.
And that’s it! You now know how to draw whiskers on a face!
Draw the outline of your whiskers.
Start with a pencil and sketch lightly at first. Draw the outline of your whiskers following the contours of your face. You can make them as long or as short as you like. When you’re happy with the shape, darken the lines with a pen or marker.
Fill in the whiskers.
Start with a pencil and lightly sketch out the shape of the whiskers. Use long, curved lines to give them a gentle “S” shape. When you’re happy with the placement and shape of the whiskers, go over them with a black pen or marker. Allow the ink to dry, then erase any remaining pencil marks.
Add shading and texture to your whiskers.
To add shading and texture to your whiskers, start by drawing a line from the corner of your mouth to the bottom of your ear. Then, draw short, curved lines outward from this line to create the strands of whiskers. Make some of the lines longer and some shorter to create a natural look. Finally, use a pencil or pen to add shadowy areas under your whiskers and along the sides of your face to give them more dimension.
Experiment with different whisker styles.
There are all sorts of fun whisker styles you can experiment with. Start by imagining what kind of animal your character would be if they had whiskers. Would they be a lion with long and stately whiskers, or a mischievous kitten with short and playful whiskers?
Once you have an idea of the general shape and size of your whiskers, you can start playing around with different placement options. Whiskers can be straight, curved, zig-zaggy, or even spiraled. They can be symmetrical or asymmetrical. They can start at the very top of the nose, or just below the nose. And they can extend down past the chin, or stop at the corners of the mouth.
There are really no rules when it comes to whisker placement, so have fun exploring different possibilities until you find a style that you like.
Use makeup to create whiskers.
Many people use makeup to create whiskers on their face. This is a good option if you want to be able to remove your whiskers at the end of the day. Use an eyeliner pencil or liquid eyeliner to draw thin lines on your face where you want your whiskers to be. Start with just a few lines and then add more until you are happy with the results. You can also use eyeshadow to create a more natural look. Apply a small amount of shadow to a brush and then lightly stroke it along your skin where you want the whiskers to be.
Draw whiskers on other people’s faces.
To draw whiskers on other people’s faces, use a black eyeliner pencil or liquid liner. Starting at the outer corner of the eye, draw a line down and out to the side of the face. Repeat on the other side. For more exaggerated whiskers, continue the line beyond the corners of the mouth.
Have fun with your whiskers!
There’s no right or wrong way to draw whiskers on your face. It’s all about having fun and being creative! Here are a few tips to get you started:
-Start by drawing a few lines across your cheeks. These will be the “ base” of your whiskers.
-Then, add some lines coming off of the base lines. These can be longer or shorter, depending on how you want your whiskers to look.
-Finally, fill in the spaces between the lines with small dots or dashes to give your whiskers some texture.
And that’s it! You can experiment with different numbers and lengths of whiskers until you find a look that you like. Once you’re happy with your whiskers, take a selfie and show off your feline friend to the world!
