Avoiding Same-Face Syndrome

September 28, 2017

different faces

“Same Face Syndrome” is when an artists draws characters with similar facial features. Sometimes characters have the exact same face so the different subjects look like one person with different hair and clothing. Every artist has a default set of features based on what they find appealing and how they learned to draw faces. As a warm up I drew variations so I wouldn’t use the same features as a crutch. It’s quick an easy to draw generic thumbnail sketches but when I design various characters I want them to look like different people.
