Illustration & Drawing Tips : How to Draw Funny Faces


Alright folks, in this clip I’m going to teach
you how to draw funny faces. And we’re going to start right up here face number one. We’ll
call this one the hysterical laughter funny face. Best way to draw this one is to start
by drawing your eyes like that which basically makes it look like they’re closed and they’ve
squinted to the point where the guy can’t control himself. Come up and draw some eyebrows
in there. Come down here and draw his nose. Then the key obviously to this one is drawing
a big, wide, open, laughing, mouth like that. Draw the tongue. Then we draw the teeth kind
of like that. And that is one hysterical face. He looks, you know, pretty like he’s laughing
pretty hard there. Then we could draw another one where we could say he looks kind of surprised.
So draw the eyes really big on this one. Kind of come in and just to make him look funny,
maybe make them look two different sizes. And then make his pupils really big in the
middle. Give him a little bit of life put in a little white space in there. Draw his
nose. And then draw his mouth in a sort of a small little like black holed shape. And
it makes it look like he’s complete, just kind of caught off guard. Give him a little
chin there, or a little lip I guess I should say rather. And that would be I would say
surprise. Give him some eyebrows kind of going up like that. Perfect. And then we could do
like a funny kind of upset face where you draw the eyes kind of at weird angles like
this. Come in and draw his eyebrows.
Key to this one is obviously giving him the slanted eyebrow thing. The thing that’s going
to make this one funny is going to be his mouth being up so high. Kind of like this.
We’ll say he’s really grumpy about something. See how that kind of works that way? But then
obviously you’re here to continue to draw his face. Like that, with his ear there and
so on. But that would be basically what the kind of goofy grumpy looking face would be.
Then there would be, I guess you could say this is more of a sort of a silly or a frazzled
look that we could do. Where you come down here and we draw the eyes. One way to draw
a funny face constantly or to draw sort of a face that’s supposed to look unusual is
make sure the eyes are different sizes. It kind of adds to something funny to it. Now
this guy’s going to look frazzled. So we’re going to make his eyes a little bit crossed.
Kind of like that. Draw his eyebrows a little cock-eyed. And one way that we’ll do this
too, is we’re going to draw some lines by his eyes. It just kind add, makes him look
like he can’t control his expression right now. He’s just completely stymied. Draw his
nose there. Then draw a kind of a wrinkle along the sides of his mouth. It just, that
says something with character too. It says that something is not right here. He’s clearly
been dumbfounded or flabbergasted by something. And that’s what the mouth kind of gives us
a clue of. Then we could draw the just kind of cheesy, happy face, I guess you could say.
Which is again, come and draw the eyes. In this case we’ll draw them both the same size,
just because, you know, this guy’s happy. Even if it is kind of a goofy looking happy
face. Come in here, eyebrows, eyebrows always ought to be really high up when you’re drawing
kind of a happier face. Nose there. Big old grin, like that. And obviously this is just,
this guy’s got a lot of personality right here in this face. And the big kind of ear
to ear grin, really kind of makes it look a little bit goofy and funny though. And makes
it a little interesting. And then I say, last but not least, you could do the sad expression.
Which is, well you know, kind of a downer but it also looks, you know, you can make
it look funny too. If that’s what you’re going for. Start by making the eyes in sort of like
weird triangle shapes. We’ll make this guy looking up, kind of like he’s pouting up at
somebody. Like so. Eyebrows pointed up the same way. Nose. And then to make it kind of
look sus, goofy make the mouth also in sort of a triangle shape with the edges of his
mouth kind of hanging down like that. Then his lip like that. And that can just be like
a major league kind of sad, bummed face. But it looks funny because it’s, you know, supposed
to be kind of a more comical expression even though it is sad. So there you have it. Couple
of variations on different types of expressions, and all of them being more comical funny faces.
