    EDIT: by MikeCorriero
    " I think this was a double post of the african male head tutorial.. and I can't for the life of me find the original post for this second head drawing tutorial I have by Ron so I will post it here since the African Male Head tutorial has been posted already. "

    The 3/4 View

    This is an excellent tutorial <> it does have one major flaw which I see happen a lot that weakens many portraits of both beginners and professionals like Ron.

    Many people do not understand the 3/4 view of the face and actually split the face in half as it has been done here.

    This head is half face and half side of the head. The center of the face is at the cheekbone which divides it equally between side and front.

    To be a 3/4 view of the head it should be divided so that it is either 3/4's face and 1/4 side or 3/4's side and 1/4 face.

    These proportions do not have to be exact but it should be more of one than the other.

    This technically is a 1/2 view which generally flattens out the face and confuses the viewer as to what part to focus on. Here Ron uses the lights and darks to overcome the problem but if this were a line drawing the problem would be very obvious.

    Once again this an excellent tut.... ask your teachers and see if they know why it is called a 3/4 view and what that actually means.

    Do 3 line drawings of the same face,

    1) 75% face 25% side
    2) 50% face 50% side
    3) 25% face 75% side

    You will note that 1 and 3 have more depth, more drama and are more interesting.

    The principal is the same, these are geared towards how to draw the human head not individual people.

    Thanks for the great tutorial, Fred! I could use a similar one for puppy faces, but of course that must be very different since there are lots of different-shaped puppy faces, right?

    I initially wanted to take exception to Mentler's criticism of the 1/2 and 1/2 view. I mean, that's how a head is frequently posed, look at the reference for gosh sakes! We see it all the time! To back up my contention I looked at diverse portrait artists at ARTRENEWAL, including Leonardo and Singer Sargent, etc, but found--SONUVAGUN--Mentler's right! More often than not the portraits I looked at were in the 3/4-1/4 ratio he described, and that accounted for the strong dramatic sense of a form in space with definite receding and advancing planes. the experience made me feel even more jaundiced than previously about the uncritical use of photo reference, especially considering that the flattening effect of the !/2-1/2 ratio is seen as a virtue in a kind of documentary journalism-style photography, where the point is to provide as much information as possible, not necessarily recreate the visual experience of the 3-D world.

    Also interesting to me on this thread was the personality of the artist coming through in the African-American head, in the subtle changes from photo to drawing which lend the subject more warmth, specifically the eyes being slightly wider and more focussed, and the hint of a smile playing about the lips, where the photo shows a more abstracted, even grave demeanor.

    Very nice tutos, thanks much!

    Just out of interest, in step 6 of the African head tutorial, did you use an eraser or a white pencil to make the highlights more obvious?

    I prefer using a white pencil, but it sometimes blurs the image slightly, ruining the sketchy feel.

    Thanks for posting man.

    Best tutorial ever! Thank you so much for this!

    Would there be any chance of a video tutorial on how to draw the face from a direct full on angle?

    first note of step 2 on the first one--"this is where formal understanding of features are used"
    I may be out of my league here, but isn't that where the tutorial part comes in? What can you teach anyone about drawing the human head that isn't that exactly? Doesn't everything else you could possibly include in a drawing tutorial apply to drawing anything?
