Yaut'ja Head Tutorial by XenoPredDragon Yaut'ja Head Tutorial by XenoPredDragon
A step-by-step of the process I follow when I draw my Yaut'ja (aka. Predator) face and heads.
My style is cartoony and my Yaut'ja end up looking not very intimidating or realistic, but if the steps, helplines, and process is in anyway helpful, you are welcome. :bow:

Oh thanks, hopefully it helped you get along with some of the placements, but I am certain you'll notch it up with some awesome realism to it. :thumbsup:

Glad it is, as this is the method I use every time I draw Predators. Thought I really should include some examples... :hmm:
But glad it'll be helpful to some! :D

Hmm? I think there's no special need for it. It's noticeable when someone's go to your gallery. Cx
I'm glad you're glad. XD

I just realized I haven't commented on the last artworks yet that you uploaded here, so I'm gonna catch up on that. :)

I really like your tutorial, it's so much better than mine. :XD: I usually take the basic shape of a human head and face as base for my Yautja faces, so seeing that you don't do this was actually a surprise because from what I know, that's what most artists do. But it's very interesting how you do it. I don't think it'd work for me though. ^^; I can't draw Yautja faces without a human shape underneath. :lol:

Yes, that may be for artists who actually can draw human faces, I cannot. :hmm: But ever body has their own way about things. :aww:

This is so usefull. I used it to draw about half of Sangu's family, even his dad. I just used it now to draw another predator that has no connection to Sangu, but is another OC.

nvrmind, its just that the top teeth is showing and the bottom aren't which confuses me XD

Uh... yeah... that is how I draw them with the mouth closed. :hmm: You can see the bottom jaw and teeth showing in the other suggestions to the side on step 3.

I hope this will be helpful, as I've heard many struggle with making Yaut'ja. :phew: What a cool idea, when I do Suni as my alter-ego I try and replicate the same hair color (and if possible style too), eye color and the shape of the chin. :aww: And same body type and clothes. :XD:
