    Faces of Dread

    Hello everyone, Im kind of new around here so I want to say hi to you all fellow artists! I've been exploring some of the sketchbooks and there's a lot of amazing talent here. The name of this thread kind of refers to the dread I feel when drawing faces, I think I got the creatures and demons nailed but drawing faces always gives me trouble. I want to get better at this and could use any friendly advice,tips, exercises, criticisms or anything. I'll keep posting and again greetings.

    Some old digital paintings I did a while ago, also a sketch. But I plan to fill this thread with dreaded faces (they give me so much trouble!).

    Good work on those faces, I know they can be quite a challenge. Be mindful of head shape, though. It looks like on some of these sketches the face is too large for the head (like the first face in post 7). I like that you have a great deal of contrast, in your work. Keep it up!

    Hey man, actually I think that those face are really nice!
    But if I have to make an advice, I would say that make some studies from skulls, that's what everyone recommend, and it helps a lot, really mate! keep doing it (sorry for my english)

    Just keep doing what you're doing man! Bit of practice everyday makes all the difference.

    If you haven't already, check out some of George B Bridgman's material on constructing heads. I also dread drawing faces, as they are usually the main focal point our eyes get drawn to when we first see a painting or drawing, so they really have to be top notch. Bridgman simplifies it into an easy formula, which you can then expand on with your own creativity.

    Hope it helps.
