Urban Sketchers Portugal 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.

Toilet Paper Origami Toilet Paper Origami is the origami-style folding of toilet paper. There are two ways to do this: - fold the toilet paper while it is still on the roll, or - fold a single sheet of toilet paper. Fold Toilet Paper while still on the Roll This is seen in some upscale hotels where the cleaning staff will fold the first sheet of toilet paper into a triangle. The triangulated toilet paper informs the guests that the cleaning staff has been there, and has finished cleaning the room.

{Tutorial} Journal Covers Journal covers make great gifts and are a super-fun way to use fabric scraps. My tutorial is based off of this one by Jennifer Paganelli with a few modifications. Appearing here by popular demand! It's designed to cover a composition book, which measures 9 3/4" x 7 1/2" and has a nice firm outer. These are widely available at back to school time in the States or anytime at an office supply store. I buy the "grid rule" kind online via Staples, since graph paper is great for sketching quilts. Step 1: Prepare Fabric I've made journal covers in a myriad of piecing styles. As I'm designing a cover, I keep a composition book on hand for visual reference. If your fabrics are very light in color, you may want to add a second layer of lightweight muslin or the like to prevent your cover from being see-through. Step 2: Side Edges Turn under the 12" sides of the cover by 3/4". Finish the turned under edge with a 1/8" topstitch. Step 3: Sew it Up! Pin along the line over the folded portions.
