Are we allowed to do the assignment if we were not there for the class? I watched the streaming class but was not able to get to the class due to timezone. I still want feedback for my drawings.

Here's my first 44 head from observation and photos. Since my last 100 head about 1/2 a year ago focused the female head, I've decided to focus on more the male head this time around. Yes, I did take a bit longer(about 15 minutes) to flush out a few that I really liked .

It is really difficult to draw a head without reference and make it look realistic at the same time. I will draw reference heads once I get back to school tomorrow.

Really great drawings guys, makes me somewhat embarassed to post mine here - but in the interests of education, general community awareness and self improvement, here they are.
For what it's worth, I really enjoyed the class. Will definitely have to watch those vids through again to see how efficiently Zhanglu creates beautiful faces and forms. Because it was a feminine form assignment, I've decided to stick to female heads. Be warned though, they're not pretty! In fact, they're pretty damned masculine, especially at the beginning - I think i'm starting to notice how much of an impact the jawline has - and I've been deliberately trying to keep that rounded/soft since.

5 more for 20 from reality! 30 more to go
This will take ages >.> ,but I see the improvements ...

Com'n everyone, keep it up and going
Another five from imagination, so 20-20 (only 40 heads so far?! 60 to go)
It was a bad drawing night, but at least got to focus a little on the eyes, and discovered that I fail epically in drawing hair (Someone give me points/links please?)

Sorry for slackin' dude - Alamed's been busting out like a champion!
Was hoping to get more done before monday, but guess I might as well just post now, since I'm heading out to a wedding in Oklahoma this week. I've been going over the time too, more like 15 minutes or longer + erasing time instead of the 5 assigned, which means I'm not really doing things correctly. I tried to get someone over here to do the gestures, but so far the best I've been able to manage is some awkward coffee shop sessions and a chain smoker who's doesn't like to sit still for very long
Here are some heads I'm working on though. Profiles from the imagination are OK, but 3/4 is a lot harder. I don't really know what I'm doing without something to look at, so I started by checking out Gibson girls and some AC Johnston photographs - did a few sketches looking at those and then tried to do a couple in similar positions right afterwards, to see if I could get some general shapes out of it. Also watched that Bobby Chiu vid where he talks about the 3 triangle profile idea (nose, eye-socket, lips) and thought that was pretty cool for doing simplified characters. Going to try for some of those on the next round.
I think I can get a few more on this page, then start in a bigger sheet next week... Maybe run into a couple cute bride's maids at this wedding willing to help out - that'd be nice. Oh and the big mug at the bottom is a self portrait I started way back in Nov, which has me feeling pretty damn lazy that it still isn't finished.
Anyhow, I'll catch you guys in a week or so, when I get back - Really excited for school next month! Keep up the good work all and thanks again for this class.

Wow Jasonwclark good work, where did you learn to shade like that? (top left drawing)
5 more heads today, from reference. It was very hard to stay with the 5 min, I guess that was the point, to capture the essential features and not spend time on details ... I'll try to stick to that in the coming drawings.

Hey! I have nearly done all the heads from life, yes from life woohoo, I found some very lovely people who were willing to help me out, so thankyou to them, I'm only sorry I couldn't always do them justice. Anyway, I have to go to college in like 10 mins, so this is all I had time to prepare for upload.
All of these have been done in 3-5 minutes, from life. Was very hard...
