Hey there, creative soul! If you love drawing semi-realistic faces as much as I do, or have been looking for the PERFECT face drawing tutorial for beginners, you're in the right place!!
Today we're drawing another cutie in my signature "Fun, Fab style" from my very first published book, How to Draw Fun Fab Faces. In this QUICK & EASY face drawing tutorial, I'll take you step-by-step through my process of drawing a simple face in pencil using my whimsical face drawing guidelines.
Last week, we did a similar drawing and colored her in with greyscale alcohol markers over on my Mixed Media YouTube channel. This time, we'll do our shading in COLOR using Tombow Markers and water.
Grab the closest pencil and a sheet of watercolor paper (if you wanna color along using Tombows and water later).

Make sure you click over to the video to see the drawing process happening in action. It totally helps!
I started today's face drawing off the way I do all of them - by drawing a TON of ovals. Eventually one of them begins to emerge like a nice, solid face shape. After it does, we just need to add a cute and curvy, whimsical neck, and divide the face into quadrants to establish the position of key features like eyes, nose, and mouth.
As you follow along with the video, you'll witness the transformation of a blank sheet into a delightful face just FULL of personality - in less than 20 minutes! Awesome, right?!
If you love the book shown in today's video - it's available on Amazons worldwide and has TONS of fun face drawing project ideas for beginners. CHECK IT OUT HERE.
After your adorable drawing is done, it's time to color her in on my mixed media channel using Tombows and water!

What Fans Are Saying
Karen, you are absolutely fabulous! You make me feel like I can draw anything. I have recently retired and finally have the time to do some of the art that I have loved since I was in school. I am really at the beginning of my art journey and I hope to learn as much as I can. Thank you for all you do.
