How to draw face of Catwoman. Learn to draw face of a female anti-hero Catwoman from Video and step by step tutorial. In this tutorial, you will learn how to sketch and draw basic comics facial structure for female. Though drawing in comics style looks different from realistic approach, it is still base on realistic structure. Either portrait or figure in comics art form, both base on realistic study. If the proportion of the face or body is off, we can tell most of the time. But a lot of time, in comics the artist intentionally create exaggeration of proportion so that it would have more emotional or visual impact to the audience. Some succeed but some was not so lucky. So I would strongly recommend study real proportion or do realistic approach and life drawing along with your comics drawing practice. That way you will gain vast knowledge of how body works and what part of the body that you could play around with your exaggeration or accentuate. A lot of character design artists at Disney do this exact study. They would study real life model or animal from life drawing session, then they will put their knowledge of realism into their cartoon or comics design.
