    Loomis Chin?

    Name:  loomis heads.jpg
Views: 1558
Size:  25.9 KBSo I'm studying the Loomis model for heads and Proko.com doesn't really get into the chin thing to much. My chins tend to come out looking super hmm.... stout? What am I doing wrong here? Am I setting my chin to high or am I making the face to wide?

    I haven't studied they features yet so I'm just doing a quick scribble for them. Any additional advice and comments are obviously very welcome.

    Keep studying the proportions of the head. You're starting with the right idea of a circle base, but you're drawing the chin way too short.

    Of course there are many different methods of constructing the head. Personally, I never had luck with Loomis' method. There's a wonderful video by Steve Huston that explains everything in detail. It's over three hours long, but he explains things very clearly. Try it out and draw along, at least just for the first hour or so.

    Thank you so much. The image is awesome. I was trying to find a decent one but none of them were nearly as good as the one you sent so thank you again. I'm starting to sort of get the Loomis method down a bit but I'll definitely check out the link you sent as well.

    For starters, make sure you cut off the sides of the head, instead of just drawing construction lines.

    Back to Loomis

    So Iím back to working on my loomis and Iím trying to verify ......the hairline ,brow line, and base of the nose line,should all have a slight curve while the facial centerline should be relatively straight?

    Yes, this is correct.

    Red face Why do my women look like men

    Iíve been working on my Loomis heads and Iíve made some progress but now all my female models look awfully masculine. Iím curious as to the reason. I think part of it is the noses are too boxy and masculine looking. And. What? Chin?

    Would greatly appreciate any input and advice. And yes all four of those pictures are supposed to be women

    Your female heads are sloppy constructions of Loomis' head.
    Go back to basics.

    Practicing Loomis

    I know my eye and nose and mouth proportions are probably wrong I havenít gotten into studying them but they kind a help me get a perspective of the face
