Front view

Drawing of human body proportions (1744).

Front view, also called full view, in visual art, is a view where the artist, the audience, or the camera looks straight at the front of a person or object.

This view is found a lot in children's drawings, graphical design such as pictograms, and also in caricature, cartoons, comics, manga and anime. It is often avoided in fine art and illustrations that strive for realism because it looks somewhat unnatural and too symmetric.

In human faces, the nose is somewhat difficult to draw in front view.
