    Male and female eyes

    Does anyone have a guide for distinct differences in drawing male and female eyes (and other facial features I guess) I appreciate any help

    Men tend to have longer eyelashes; unfair, but true! Other than that, probably the only noticeable difference is make-up....

    Mens' brow ridges tend to be heavier, which makes their brows lower and their eyes deeper set. Stereotypically, straight lines and angles= masculine, curving lines = feminine.

    Huh, despite the dude in that video sounding pretty stoned I actually learned something! I'd never heard about the curve of jaw lines being lower in women than in men. The jaw line always seemed like an important difference but I could never put my finger on what exactly it was. I'm actually pretty terrible at drawing the faces of women and it's always been a bit of a point of embarrassment. I've always been better at drawing ugly things than pretty things. Jawlines/chins have always given me trouble...its like the 3D shape never makes sense in my head and I distort it....need to get back into a life drawing class or something...gotta corner the wifey for some face studies (she'll be thrilled about that )
