How to Draw the Head in 3/4 or Side View A common approach to drawing the head from 3/4 or side view is to use a 2 step construction approach. The first step is to draw a ball for the cranium, followed by drawing the frontal plane and jaw. Below is an example by Andrew Loomis (Fig. 1). This tutorial will introduce a more fluid and gestural approach to drawing the head. Step 1: Using The “Pie” Shape The geometric shape we will use to capture the head in side or 3/4 view is called the “pie”. The first major thrust is the frontal plane of the face. This defines where the features of the face will lie and the general length of the subject’s face. The next step is to draw a line through the point of the forehead to the back of the cranium (Fig. 3). To develop this intuition, first observe and then use your minds eye to imagine the subjects cranium. The final major thrust is drawn through the back of the skull to the tip of the chin (Fig. 4). As you can see. you’ve created a pie shaped triangle. Step 5: Begin Lighting & Shading

How to Draw the Head From Any Angle The Basic Forms To draw the head from any angle you must first understand its basic structure. Look past all the distracting details and visualize the underlying forms. This ability to simplify can be applied to the features of the face, but when starting the drawing you could look even further. Ignore even the features and simplify to the most basic form of the head. I use a method taught by Andrew Loomis in his book, “Drawing the Head & Hands”. The head deconstructed into its basic forms, is a sphere as the cranium and a block as the jaw and cheek bones. A Sphere as the Cranium The sides of the head are flat, so we can slice off a piece from both sides of the ball. A Block as the Jaw and Cheek Bones Attach the shape of the jaw. Constructing From Any Angle Step 1 – Determine the angle of the ball The angle of the head is established at the very beginning of the drawing with the ball. X Axis - The up and down tilt is established by the angles of the horizontal and vertical lines in the oval.

Comment dessiner différents types de visages Comme nous l’avons vu dans l’article précédent, dessiner une tête n’est pas si difficile que ça avec la méthodologie que je vous ai montrée. Dans cet article, nous allons voir comment il est possible de construire tous les types de visages avec cette même technique. Il s’agit ici de varier les proportions de chaque partie osseuse du visage comme les pommettes, la mâchoire, le front, le dôme du crâne et l’arrière de la tête. Comme en caricature, ou dans le character design pour les jeux vidéos, on adapte les proportions de la tête avant de poser les détails du visage. Cet article n’est pas dédié à l’anatomie, mais je tiens à vous montrer les structures que l’on trouve sous la peau et que les débutants ont tendance à oublier pour dessiner les visages. Observez ce dessin qui montre la structure osseuse du crâne et les proportions de base chez un individu normal: Ce sont ces parties osseuses que l’on va déformer pour donner du caractère à notre personnage. visage carré front bas front haut

How to Draw Facial Expressions to Show Emotion In this Quick Tip I will be showing some useful guidelines you can follow to create the base of a head with facial features, following that up with quick tips on how to shape the facial features to create an expression/show emotion! We will start by creating a base shape of the head before focusing on the expressions. Start by drawing out a simple head shape, an oval for the skull, two ears, a neck and the start of the shoulder. Once you've got a shape that pleases you, we will start placing in the grid that will help us place the facial features. The nose is the one that will help us with all the other facial features. With the temples created, you'll also know where the outer corners of your eyes are located; so, with the inner and outer corners determined, you can shape out the eyes. Much like the eyebrows, you want to draw a simple bowed line, the corners going upwards, to define the center line of the mouth and then shape the top and bottom lips to that line.

étape par étape oeil Pencil Portrait Lessons In the last lesson on eyes we talked about the various problems that artists run into when trying to draw eyes as realistic as possible. In this lesson, we will begin the drawing process. There are two things that you need to do in order to in order to get started. The first is to make sure you are using the right tools. If you have trouble finding the tools locally, or if you would simply like to help support this site, you can purchase the tools directly from my Shopping Center by clicking on the Pencil Portrait Supplies link in the upper left section of this page. The next thing that you have to have is your initial sketch drawn on your paper. Step One - The Pupil The first step is to draw in the pupil. Important Note: Make sure that you do NOT color in the areas that will be the highlights. Step Two - The IrisBefore we start drawing in the iris, I want to talk a moment about a technique called hatching. This image illustrates both the correct and incorrect usage of hatching.

When you get the book, check out the "before" and "after" examples of Edwards' students.

t↑te muscles 1 1 Figure drawing: Basic Pose and Construction 1. Introduction This method is to help you draw the human form. It is by no means the best way or even a fast way. Classical animation (most notably Disney) uses a similar way of setting up their characters. Using this method will help you form your thoughts on the human body posing on paper rather than in your mind. 2. Basic anatomy Stickfigures Wait, don't go away yet! Let's take a look at stickfigures. Lesson Try to draw these standing stickfigures and see if you master their proportions. Body language Stickfigures, again Now that you know how important it is to master proportions through simple stick figures, we go to the next use of stickfigures: 'the pose'. Stickfigures in action Here are a few examples how you can use a stickfigure to determine a pose. Lesson Try drawing stickfigures in action. Balance When you set up a pose, you will need to take into account its center of gravity. red circle = centre of gravityred arrow = direction of gravitygreen arrow = resting point 3. 4.
