    Thumbs up Best thread title this year!

    These are GOOD!
    The Hepburn one has her eyes a bit askew, but overall, I enjoyed every one of these that you posted.

    I particularly liked the red and blue pen one with the screwdriver imbedded in the back of the head, and the Alfred Hitchcock piece.
    Marilyn looks a bit old and tired around the mouth, but after all these years, that's to be expected...

    My favorite piece, though is the partial portrait you uploaded first. Execellent usage of hatching to create the details of the eyes, glasses and the lips. It's only the side piece of the glasses that throw it off. It is always a sign of technical skill to be able to convey so much personality without a facial outline or background...

    Good work!

    Hey thanx man.

    Ill be honest, i am no expert and can be pretty lazy, particular with portions and anatomical aspects.

    Gota put abit more planning and thinking into stuff you know?
    Not the sharpest nife in the box.

    Loving alot of the work on the forum, jaw dropping stuff.
    Someone sent a link over and it was worth it.

    Take it easy,

    Roll up a newspaper and whack yourself across the snout. Bad halflife99! Bad boy! These are not scummy. Now go sit in the corner and think about what you've done.

    The reference works are coming along nicely. As you say, the proportions and measurements could be a tad tighter (think more about the angles and measuring those), but nice stuff. I really wish you could make more connection between your reference work and that done from the imagination. While much of it is necessarily fantastic (a pic of a screwdriver to the back of a zombie’s head is tough to find in the library), if you can add those elements of reality to your pics, it would bring them to the next level. When you begin to understand how the face and body work, you’ll start to be able to modify the elements in such a way that things will look right, despite how you twist and mangle things (as long as you follow certain rules). This disclaimer often sounds like a limitation, but it’s actually what allows you to go even farther than you’d otherwise think feasible and have things still look believable.

    Nice stuff.

    You can come out of the corner now. <gives halflife a noogie>

    I bought and read Perceptive made easy
    Then bought the Andrew Loomis head drawing book, but it was exceprts not the thing In it’s entirety, so read it online.

    Been making my way through it,. Pretty alien stuff, but I see what a fellow poster ment when he said there are certain rules.

    Been scribbling away, memorized set of planes as the book suggested, using the cheeks and crossings of the eye brows as a rough guide for perspective (im not sure if that’s right but if someone could enlighten me I would be grateful for the help)


    Learned the bones from loomis set as well as the muscles recently.
    I also went through the CA academy thread and try’s a few of the exercises, mainly the line one as my lines are scratchy and all over the bloody place.

    Help<---, tips critics appreciated. Would really like to progress.

    I doodled what was suppose to be a dwarf, instead looks more like a homeless man smoking a crack pipe of some sort.

    For the heads, you did quite a few there, and it already shows that you're improving the sketches throughout those scans. That's also the way I like to draw heads, with panes etc... Although I am more of a comics look artist than a real life (yup I gotta fix that now hehe).

    The dwarf looks like a human, you're right. But your drawing is still excellent, for a human I would suggest to study reference images if you are not familiar with a subject. "Fantasy-style" dwarves somehow have more of a sturdy look, wide nose, eyebrows forward and eyes deeper in the sockets, etc...

    Nice work still. It's so easy to criticise other people's work, and so easy to forget all the good advice when you're the one drawing LOL. I do the same mistakes sometimes, yet I can spot them easily on other people's work. I guess that's why we're all here together!

    My 2 cents

    Hmm thanks, purchased drawing and painting fantasy figures a few weeks back from Amazon, had a quick flick to the head drawing section, wasn’t overlay impressed, still, not really read it, want to be sure that the knowledge from loomis’s book is properly sponged first, sort of memorized the planes, roughly memorized the anatomy, still need to practice I think I still have a long way to go until something properly finished can be produced, I love the way Loomis words things, so much more technical but still very clear about what he is saying.

    This is a doodle i done earlyer today using planes with light applied without reference, still need to read the about light. Helpful tips critz anything useful would be appreciated thanks.

    A mess about for fun, spent a few minutes doodling the joker after reading about the batman begins sequel, Loomis method is tremendous fun.

    Still clueless about handling hair.

    I think the big load of head studies is the best stuff you have, but maybe you should start a sketchbook, you'd get more visibility.
