Asked for help
Judi Dench.. chosen original photo > thumbnail > rough sketch > abstraction > finished pencil sketch.. Learnt more about the reasons behind using the abstraction.. found it really helpful to set up the facial structure before rendering. The owl picture was used to help me create chosen exaggeration for thumbnail sketch.. probably leading to the increased side tilt of her head.
Hey Court, Are you out there? Found this last video really helpful to understand the logic behind using the 'abstract'. Tried it with the following. Not sure if I have managed to resolve Daniels (his)right cheek in this 3/4 view as couldn't see the relevant rhythms.. What do you think? See past posts for original image. Thanks for feedback..
Hello Court, I am enjoying the assignment.. but struggling to generate a wide variety of head shapes.. once I've found one that seems ok I kinda get stuck with it. Found that using different drawing tools really helped.. and nearly always spent too long on each sketch. But... it was fun!!! :) Ps. apologies for poor image quality but no scanner at this end. PPs. and couldn't find all the original images I worked from for Dan & Ben.
