Draw the Loomis Head - Front View
Draw some more loomis heads from front view. Draw some looking up and some looking down and don’t forget about foreshortening.
Some front view Loomis heads. I'm finding the jaw angles especially tricky when the face is tilted downwards.
I asked proko this but not sure if he will answer. When he says a thin piece of the side plane can be seen from the front, does that mean the side plane isn't totally flat, but curves a bit toward the front? Or does that mean when seen from the top, it is tilted kinda like the first image? In that case, in a profile view, wouldn't the side plane be slightly to the front of the head instead of right in the middle? Or am I misunderstanding something?
im having some trouble with the jaws and i feel like theres something wrong but i cant pinpoint itt but heres my attemptt
I'm pretty sure I messed up the side planes of the heads. I know that they're typically 2/3rds the height of the cranium (ball), but are there any tips on drawing the curves that form the front and back of the side planes?
Hi guys, what do you think about my attempts? I'm a bit discouraged because it's seems something is missing or wrong, sigh. And I can't figure out where is the problem. I'm just pretty proud of the lateral view by the way.
realized too late that I forgot to carve the initial circle, and just straight draw the oval
Day 4 in studying the Loomis method I need help with how much I need to chop off the sides
So far I've just been studying how Proko does his loomis method and have been following along. Besides the poor line quality, I think I'm starting to understand it more. Next I'll try doing some front view studies from other references.
Struggled a bit with the relationship between the bottom of the sphere and the bottom plane of the jaw but got it done.
Just getting started off- here are a couple of the favorites. Tips and tricks much appreciated!
