Hey, everyone. I need help with side views. Desperately. Well, I'm not so sure if i'm that bad, but I need you opinion on what I need to fix.

Uh, this is the main character from my comic, ‘Black Streaks’… His name is Dacre. But enough about that, here's my pic of the side view:



Do I need help?

Um… I guess I don't need help, and I'm going crazy.

Thanks for your kind words!

It looks totally fine to me. Honestly I don't see anything worth correcting.
Darn. And I was all ready to whip out some side view drawings I made for someone else who was having trouble.

Well, for one thing, the ear does need to be a bit bigger. There's a rule about the size of an ear being lined up with two features of the face (I don't remember exactly the two spots, so I usually line the top of the ear with the eye and the bottom with the top of the mouth….meheh!)

Also, the noses do tend to differ between person to person, so what I can suggest is do a 3/4 view of the face to see what the shape of the nose is before doing the full side view. Takes a lot of practice!
I've too many mottos ta say here, so be glad I'm not saying any of them.

All I'll add to this is that in the side view the mouth is probably going a bit too far back.

It's the eyes and bottom of the nose.

The top of the ear should line up with the top of the eye and the bottom of the ear should line up with the bottom of the nose. Those are the measurements you were thinking of, Ceb.

You've got a good grasp of the measurements, DancingChaos. The head isn't too slim and has roundness to it. However, I think the chin is a little bit too far back. It should almost line up with the nose. Also, the neck seems a little awkward when connecting with the chin. I'm not sure how to fix that, since it looks like it's not too thin and making it thicker might make it look weird.

I like it. Better than mine in any case. That's saying something, too. ;)

The chin should be a little bigger too. It's a good head, but his jaw is a little “weak”, as they say.

Firstly, the nose should end about halfway between the eye level and chin.

Secondly, like the person before me said, the chin is weak, mainly because you gave him a bit too much of an overbite. Also the bottom lip needs to be bigger.

Apart from that, pretty damn good.

The “two spots” are the eyebrow and the bottom of the nose.
The chin needs to be larger, your bone structure is a bit off. But not by much, here's my take on a profile view:
