Q: I don't mean to sound stupid, but how do you draw guidelines? I feel like a good drawing always has a great structure, but for the structure to be created seems to be the hardest part of all for me. With that, I am incredibly jealous of how you do so, so well !

You can’t expect to get it right the first time, it takes so much practice!! I attended this art course at the Dobell school of arts in Sydney, it taught me how to measure the distance between features on the face using your pencil held at arms length and also other techniques and guidelines when mapping the proportion, structure and planes of the head. Im sure there is heaps of information on the internet about this. But here are some guidelines that can be used-

-the eye level is generally 1/2 way down the face

-the eyebrow, the nose and the chin sit at equal thirds from the hairline

- draw the eye socket, using the eyebrow line as the top, using angles 

-the position of the mouth is usually 1/2 way between the nose and chin 

-observe closely all angles and planes, try and draw lines using angles (no curves expect for the basic mapping of the eye level, centre axis, hairline etc) this will help with creating the right shape and shadowing etc. 

I hope this has helped! good luck <3
