Omg this is so helpful when I can't quite grasp the curve around the front plane when practicing my heads.
This model really helps understanding the head in different views. Here's my attempt.
This 3d model of the head was tricky at first for me but im starting to understand. The foreshortening however gets me confused. PLEASE LEAVE ANY CRITIQUES 😬
I cant work out how to rotate any of the models on the plane of the image - as in, if you kept it facing the way it is but turned it 90 degrees. When I rotate the model up or down, and then try to turn it to the side, the model returns to looking straight to the side. Are there any shortcuts Im missing to rotate this specifically on one axis?
Hello, is there an option to view the model with the human skull? Or are those still images in the download just images for an additional reference? Thanks!
Package 1 with 10 heads, Fuck perspective, it exercise is harder than I thought and it looks so easy, the view since the chin it´s the most complicated for me, I don´t even understand how to do the line of the mandible, and I don´t understand how to give the perspective in the oval, the front views are not too front either jajja I´ll keep practicing.
Hey! The side plane looks more like a circle than an oval to me. Why do they say it is an oval ?
Hi, these are my first Loomis head drawings based on the geometric 3D model. I tried to catch as many angles as I could. My perspective skills needs serious improvements so I tried to draw the box and the sphere too. The box method helps a lot in finding the right directions and planes. Next time maybe I'll try some memory drawings. Any suggestions, feedbacks are more than welcome. The 3D models are awesome. Thanks a lot!
Hi! Here's my first 16 Loomis Heads. The last 8 is kinda messy, since I was trying to figure out the orientation because of the crazy angles and foreshortening. I'd be grateful if any errors or mistakes are pointed out. I've spotted quite a few on my own, i.e convergence inaccuracies, etc. My lines are kinda messy too, since I didn't use any tools like rulers or smoothing. It's all freehand, aside from this being digital and all. Here's a few observations I've made, and I may or may not be mistaken. 1. The minor axis of the ellipse denoting the side planes must be pointed into the vanishing point 2. When measuring out the size of the ellipse, we have to measure it in the direction of the vanishing point (i.e not always vertical depending on the orientation of the head) 3. When the head is drawn viewed from the back, we can find where the front is and their measurements, which is obstructed by the skull and we can't see it, by wrapping the measurement lines (the thirds of the face) around the cranium like rubber bands from the back. Also, I have a question on foreshortening. Do you just have to estimate the amount by which the measurements compress/extend when measuring along a foreshortened axis? Or is there some sort of technically accurate method for that? I've been relying on intuition thus far. I hope my heads look good enough. Lastly, how many of these do we have to draw? I know Stan said 100 heads, but is there a point of diminishing returns? I don't want to grind for the sake of grinding. edit: for some of the more extreme angles, the 3D model wouldn't give me the view I needed, so I couldn't quite check whether I am accurate with my Loomis head. Thanks!
I find models like this very useful but is there a way to rotate the model across the axis that points towards us? I can rotate the model on all the other axis using my mouse but not the one I mentioned. For example, if I want to use the model to draw a head tilted slightly, I have trouble finding a way to do that.
Having fun with the hole model thing! Drawing a lot of different angles is definitely good practice. :) For a minute I tried to draw features like eyes and so on, but ended up giving up. Don’t think I’m quite there yet! I also think im a bit young for this stuff but oh well. Still having fun, that’s all that matters!!!
Having fun with the process! This reminded me of spacial visualization, or the ability to mentally manipulate 2d and 3d figures. I think this is a great exercise to train the brain for weird postures that are not the typical front profiles.
Hi. Is there a measurement for placement of the center line in the side view or is it an approximate estimate starting from the estimate of the centre of the jaw line? Or......? Any help with this would be fabulous. Thanks. David
Would have been great, if the Loomis head + male skull/Female skull +A 3d generic head(male/female) could be seen superimposed and can switch and see each one. As well as the opacity of each can be adjusted like an onion skin mode. Enabling the rotation of light would also be good. I feel this would greatly help in comparative study and drawing from different angles with form light and form shadow.
It would be nice if this 3D model as well as the 3D skull model were listed under 'Tools' in my dashboard rather than having to go within the course menus to find it. I can always bookmark the page I realize, but I thought this was worth suggesting.
