    Asaro's Planes Of The Head

    I've been wanting one of these for a long time -- they're pretty rare to find, so when I found one on eBay I had to have it. I think the seller has these heads on offer on a regular basis, and there's one available now. Thought I'd post here just in case anybody's interested in getting one. Here's the link:

    Too low poly for me.
    "I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

    What exactly does "Too low poly" mean?

    I've been drawing from a geometric head similar to this... (plaster, and face only) for some time now... i call him "sun ra's geometric death mask."

    anyways... very helpful exercise... hopefully you won't get outbid. damn that thing is expensive. and in the UK. A skull model might be a better investment.... that is EXTREMELY HELPFUL for setting up heads.

    oh, the ebay drama makes my heart race...

    guggemmaneuver, I've already bought the head -- cost me around $125 including shipment (from US to the UK). Expensive, but worth it because it helps me understand the planes of the face and head. I'm also thinking of getting a full size skeleton off eBay (from Germany) LIFESIZE ANATOMICAL HUMAN SKELETON MODEL

    Your geometric head sounds interesting. Where did you get it from?
