    differences between races

    hi guys,

    I am currently learning to draw heads using a hybrid loomis method and i was wondering if there are any resources outlining the differences between races, ideally accompanied by photo ref.

    thanks

    I've got nothing specific, although my first instinct would be to use Google Image search. Seriously, if I were drawing an asian guy I'd start an image search for "Asian Male" and go from there.

    Also, if you were interested in stereotypical features (correct or not) of various races you could look up war propaganda posters.

    yes its stereotypical features im after, much in the same way loomis explains the difference between the male and female face, so i can simply add any further variance myself.

    so im looking for features for say a generic asian guy, a generic female, ect.

    Here's a video that I found very good to explain some of the differences between asian and caucasian faces.

    You can alter racial characteristics on Facegen. Haven't used it for ref yet but from what I've seen it's pretty convincing. Free BTW

    You might want to check out Lauren's skin tutorials even if it's more about skin tones than features, it's pretty well done.

    Stephen peck shows difference in race in his book.

    "Everything must serve the idea. The means used to convey the idea should be the simplest and clear. Just what is required. No extra images. To me this is a universal principle of art. Saying as much as possible with a minimum of means."
