Recently there have been questions on various Forums about Hobo Nickels and the proper proportions the elements of a face need to look Feminine (or just correct, for that matter). I've stolen the ideas from several books and these are my sketches based on another artist's work. I just added the information about the proportions I think are most valuable. I forgot to add that the proportions I've given are the same for Male faces. It's only in the bulkiness or ruggedness that differentiates Male from Female. Usually, the Female form is more subtle and rounded. Study a Kennedy Half Dollar to see a great Male profile.
