Potato face 101: Ratios
Sloppy rundown of a generic female design. A lot of the key features on a generic female are about the same for a generic small child, so it’s pretty straight forward! Large forehead, small chin, and of course the ever popular button nose. That god damn, omnipresent button nose.
Don’t feel bad if you enjoy drawing this way, it’s pretty popular. With a little effort you can easily find this trend in art today. The point of all this isn’t to bash on artists, but to make you question why most women are designed so similarly.
How to tell if you’re designing a generic female
Question number one:
Is it round and featureless, like a potato?
Did you use a button nose?
If you answered yes to either, go look at some real ass girls and start over. Throw those potatoes away. You’re keeping girls in the 40’s aesthetic, and not in the good way.
I’ll keep posting my own work but I’ll also be posting potatoes and how to draw them
