In this lesson you will be covering how to draw both male and female eyebrows, where to place them on the skull, and what makes them unique from each other.
Start off by drawing two different faces from the front view and establish the eye sockets for the eyebrows. Remember from the previous lesson that the eye sockets of the skull are really important for drawing and placing eyes on the face. The same thing goes for placing the eyebrows!
The eyebrow can be broken down into 3 simple strokes that follows the general direction that the hairs of the eyebrow are going.
On the outer part of the eyebrow where it begins to turn down, you can see that it almost points to the outer corner of the eye. This example image of a realistic eye shows this more clearly.
Female eyebrows are similar to male eyebrows with the following exceptions:
Despite these differences the eyebrows still do follow the basic shape of the eye socket.
