Sketching a Simple Head by RichardPace Sketching a Simple Head by RichardPace
Made this for my class and a friend suggested I might want to share it online. It starts with the premise you have to learn the facial/skull anatomy no matter what construction method you use, so it's likely better to start with the shape of the head you want to draw rather than force a circle, block or cylinder into that shape.

There was a whole lot of talking and demonstrations that went along with this handout, but I'm not too keen to type all that up right now. If you've any specific questions, feel free to ask in a comment.

Thnks for this. Its one of the hardest things to really grasp even wiht tons of practice. And i have a lot of books and vids on it and it still a leanring process.

Drawing the figure really does break down into learning certain specific proportions and relationships over any construction method, but construction methods are important to utilise as a method to memorising those proportions and relationships.

I was just reading somewhere about "scribbling" an object into shape rather than relying on rigid construction methods. If for nothing else, it's great to shake things up and work a drawing into place instead of worrying about strict simple shapes. This made me think of that. Thanks for sharing.

Yeah -- scribbling things into shape follows this same line of thinking.

Happy you liked this.
