Hehe I see, thanks man!
Hehe I see, thanks man!
First page I used one of Mentlers demos as reference on the block heads.
New pictures. I like the anatomy better on these.
yea nice studies - good progress
i dunno if u have seen my tutorial about heads and stuff O_o
but i think u got the basic idea behind this
use a sphere and a cross to indicate where the head is looking at and then try to add other features
keep it up !
pss : if u like to see my tut - just tell me
Thanks bob, I can always trust on you to reply.
Yea I saw your tutorial i think. But Ive seen more than one from you so I dont relly know which one you mean.
It feels like I do the same mistakes over and over when I draw heads. But I cant see it because Im so used to seeing my own drawings.
try to get ur shape as good as u can.. only use a few lines and keep it simple..
do this for profile view and front view between these u only get foreshortening.. when u draw rotated heads.. ur lines from jaw and chin and so on getting shorter.. orther lines appear others dissappear
i start with a sphere and then i check which shape fits to which head shape.. u get diffrent shapes when u look up or down.. between these shape .. u have simple shape transformation i mainli orient my face at the jaw and chin
u can get all head shapes out of a sphere
u can draw cubes to understand foreshortening bit better..
1 keep it simple
2 keep it complex
i am still elarning heads.. very hard because all the detail and features.. and i got same problems like you.. with the chin and the other half of the face + nose *damn nose *
When i draw something that I really like then I get this kind of block. I get afraid that I wont bea able to draw that good again. It feels like its better than me if you get it. Thats what I felt like after I drew this. (I know I still suck tho )

ur stuff is getting better.. and yes.. its better then you.. because u dont know.. but he knows.. when u draw.. u collect experiences which helps u to collect knowledge about drawing and how to draw heads..
iam still drawing heads.. since .. 6month or so and i still cant draw them when i draw half rotated heads they look like yours u cant draw c00l heads without drawing these.. u need these experience to get something better.. no evolution without revolution
try to draw heads mor simple just with a few lines.. its easier to allign just a few lines in the half rotated head view then full detailed head with shading
these 2 heads.. are much better then the heads above here.. u already fixed some mistakes which is very g00d
maybe u should do some more studies to orient the head ... to get an idea about how other parts dissapear when u rotate ur head .. u can take a look in a mirror and then u look and rotate ur head.. just check how the shape of ur head changes
I think its very true. Thanks bob. I just drew another head which I really like I will post it in a minute.
I think I must focus on the procedure, and not on the final product as much.

yea that looks really great
u can try to imagine a head.. then see how its alligned.. is it looking up or down or straight forward.. then see how the jaw and jin line is alligned and draw a cube that represents that shape.. and then add some detail and features.. keep it simple to get the controle.. after some studies i think it will be much easier to draw a head.. when u feel save u can try to draw something u like
when uv done this.. see where u made mistakes and then do some studies for this feature to get some more contrlole about this shape in perspective iam doing this too its a real good fast and effective way
take a look in a mirror and see how the nose shape changes when u look slighty up or down.. try to memorize 3 shapes first.. for looking up looking down and one forward.. when u good at drawing these .. memorize some more shapes to draw the shapes between looking up and straight forward or looking down and forward.. u just got slightly diffrent shapes..u can practice all of this with drawing cubes and 1 rotate the cube in space or 2 rotate just the cubes shape
Just for the record.
Made in oC. Hope we can oC again soon Ilja!
