    Thumbs up

    Been in art class for the past 45 days and all I can do is crap... It's what I could do before I went in there except for some kind chap who advised me on pencils and shading.
    I think this thread will help me alot and I will give it more time than to my art teacher

    Hey everyone.

    This ones for Odds

    Here are some head sketches. Each one took about a minute each. I know these are cartoony, I'm using these as examples of basic identifiable shapes. The next image is a break down of what may help you draw heads easier. Think of the head as a block/rectangle. Draw a line in where the eyes and ears would be. Draw a line down the center of the block where the face would be. Draw an idea of a human skull inside the block (basic shapes). Now you know where the eyes should be, the cheek bones, nose shape, mouth, etc. Build your face from that. Build a good remembering system for drawing skulls/basic shapes, to build cartoony or realistic heads. I'll post a more realistic head later. I hope this helps a little, even though it's simple.

    to odds..

    my first heads looked exectly like those.
    hope this helps

    first of all.. pay way more attention to what your doing..
    and think very clearly of this basic head shape as just what it is.. a basic head shape. bo it the best you can.. but use it only as a basic shape.. fil in the details using them as guides.. not as strickt paths.

    loosen up.. and keep drawing those heads over and over..
    don't draw just a sphere and a thingy and think.. ok, now a head should appear.

    it doesn't work that way.. its just a guide, an important and very helpfull guide.. but its no head yet. by far.

    and keep drawing.. forever drawing..
    mess around with ideas.. just put ehm down.. there nothing to lose.. only to gain.
    try strange things. try everything.. and pick the ones u like.

    drawing is no 123 skill, it's endless amounts of knowledge.. and u need to learn ehm... just keep drawing and drawing.. and more drawing

    and never forget to pay attention to your drawings.. mindless drawing is useless and will only depress you

    {NEW HERE}

    I was pretty happy with this no-ref scetch. The only thing that bugs me really is the fact that he looks short or sort of teenaged rather than a full grown man. Could it be a matter of head size?

    Hreoel:

    The left hand looks good, the structure of the chest looks good, but the parts aren't working together as a WHOLE in my opinion. In order to do that, it helps to really have a good gesture to build on. I did a quick drawing, and while it doesn't have the level of anatomy and detail that you've drawn, I think it feels more like a cohesive drawing. Hope it helps.

    Thanks, I see what you mean. Things like the hip and legs where not connecting right on my drawing. I will try building up from a gesture next time.

    Nice to see you again bonedog

    odds > Listen to those pros. But more importantly, keep practicing!!!!

    Cicero > Yeah, the head looks kinda big indeed. It's bigger than his foot (wich is very unlikely). The "torsion" is also weird in my opinion...


    Here's a few I did this week-end:

    Did this on the metro. I was trying to illustrate the base of anatomy as fast as I could.

    I like this way of sketching. I used to do some basic "cylinder dummies" but I think these ones are more helpful (for me at least).

    inspired by Chris Anderson's hatching skills I know there's something wrong with her but I just can't put my finger on it

    It's not very clean but I hope you understand the base.
