How2Draw Faces [rating: 4/5]
I’ve tried many different apps but How2Draw Faces is a completely new genre for me and a quick search of the App Store would suggest that it’s relatively unique for the iPhone/iPod touch too. ZeroUm Digital aims to teach us how to draw faces, there are future apps planned that will teach the user how to draw other items too but for now it’s faces.
There are 8 faces to draw, 3 men, 3 women a child and an old man, although the end results are completely different the steps that the app takes you through are broken down into simple steps that makes drawing a face a simple task for even the most artistically challenged people, and I should know because I am one of those people. The app is well put together and is easy to navigate and looks as professional as the results that it aims to help you create.
After selecting any of the 8 faces you are shown over the course of around 12 steps to draw the face, from a simple circle to start with and guide-lines for the features to the finer details of the eyes and lips and the final stages where the the pencil marks are over written with a pen allowing the initial pencil lines to be erased and the final results revealed.
The unique thing about How2Draw Faces though is the ability to take a photo of your drawing and overlay the your drawing with the drawing in the application. This is easily completed and once the image has been loaded you can resize and rotate the picture to align it and see where you may need to make any adjustments.
For a non-artistic person this app made it surprisingly easy to produce some decent results so for any aspiring artist I would say that this and the future apps that are planned in this series will be a great starting point to get the basics done.
How2Draw – Faces does exactly what it sets out to do.
The Not So Good
- Could have more than 8 faces!
