So, what makes a face male? Most women draw a girly face probably because we are so used to seeing our own faces, which are girly :o)
And when, without previous experience, we want to make the face of a man, it turns out like a girl with a mustache :>O
So, lets see the basic steps to give a face male characteristics, for those that have never done a male face. There are a bunch of ways and styles, this is just one way to make a male face:
*Number one, the head is more square and angular. Particularly the chin and the top of the eyes. Preferably the eyebrow, if drawing from imagination, is better to leave kind of flat and bushier. If you are working from a picture then follow what you see.
*Usually the eyes are smaller, the nose longer, and a woman's nose usually is made smaller, but then again, if you are working from a picture, follow what you see there.
*The mouth does not need much detail, in fact, the more details the more you will go towards making it too cute. A simple shadow of the top lip and an indication of the lower lip is enough. I made more shadows by the jaw, some indications of circles under his eyes, ears a bit more pronounced that the female face and the neck thicker.
