This paper provides a novel approach towards face area localization through analyzing the shape characteristics of human body. The face region is extracted by determining the sharp increase in body pixels in the shoulder area from neck region. For ensuring face area skin color information is also analyzed. The experimental analysis shows that the proposed algorithm detects the face area effectively and it’s performance is found to be quite satisfactory.
