7. Sketch in rough lines for the eye brows and nose

Eye brows should be at least a centimetre or more above the eye.

The sides of the nose line up with the corner of the eye

The sides of the mouth line up with the centre of the eye.

The neck lines up with the outside corners of the eye.

The nose has lots of curves in it

The nostrils are NOT full circles, but rather they are ovals

And the eyes have lids that are visible in the corners

Eye brows are thick in the centre of the eyes then thinner as they go out.

The pupils are solid black with highlights

The iris has a dark rim around it then lots of light strokes pointing to the centre
