Do you want to draw angry faces?

Here are the 4 easy steps you can use to draw an angry face.

Draw an angry face

1. deep eyebrows, pointing downwards above the nose

If the face is angry, we lower the eyebrows. So draw them deeper than usual.

The two brows are drawn together in the middle. Here in this picture I even drew it as one continuous line.

For an angry face, the brows come down over the nose. they literally collapse into the middle. This is the start for angry faces.



2. Upper eyelids touch the eyebrows

The upper eyelids come into contact with the raised eyebrows.

You can do this with your eyes directly draw on the eyebrows.

Hui, he looks pretty angry, doesn't he? These are really bad eyes.


3. the fixed gaze

The angry face looks wide-eyed and very rigid at the object of his anger.

A point pupil in the middle of the eye is usually sufficient for this.






4. narrow lips

When angry let's press our lips together tightly.

This will make the Lips very narrow and tense.

A horizontal line is enough. You can draw the corners of your mouth more tightly by adding small arcs.




5. other options

If you want, you can still see the angry face Lines of anger decorate all around.

And I found a tense chin appropriate too.




Make your own experiences and keep experimenting. Then you will draw a really bad face.

I wish you a lot of fun and knowledge while trying it out.
