Various studies on drawing the Loomis head. 1st image focuses on the turning of the head. 2nd image focuses on changing the proportions of the Loomis head. 3rd and 4th a focus on drawing the skull using my skull in the office. 5th and 6th is still a focus on the Loomis head at extreme angles. Any comments and feedback is appreciated. :)
Nitpick - wouldn't the minor axis of the ellipse left from the cut taken from the sphere be parallel to the feature lines (x-axis?) as opposed to the head's depth dimension (z-axis?)? Does it really matter?
They change so much stuff I don’t know where the f…to find anything it use to be easy to download can’t find how now
I like that since the music is a live recording, every now and then you'll hear a cough from the audience.
Well, it is better than my normal stick figure....I think. Looked a lot better from the other side of the room lol
Comparing "Loomis Method Real Time Demo" to "3D Model: The Loomis Head" there would seem to be a difference. In the demo the a line goes from chin to the centre of the ear plane, whereas in the 3D model the same line goes to the end of the brow line. Is this a choice, is one preferred?
I really enjoyed this real time video as I’m basically copying what is on screen at the same time. I look forward to when we get to the features- I felt like I was winging it there.
My draw along attempt. I stylized subconsciously cause that's what I'm used to doing. Otherwise I'm pretty happy, feedback is appreciated 😊
I plan to redo this with charcoal soon. I'm hoping by the end of this course I'll understand how to draw the more uncommon angles of the head and stop with the cartoon eyes and crooked noses. 😄
My first drawing in portrait drawing fundamentals. How do you guy's approach your studies? Do you keep drawing the same lesson until you can do it blind folded with a Chihuahua chewing on your leg. When is it time to move on to the next lesson?
Hello guys, may I have critique? I am just getting into art. The heads look kinds of off to me and would like some helpful feedback on them. Thanks! :)
Not gonna lie. The loomis head has been a struggle for me. Specifically the side plane and the minor axis. Whenever it comes to cylinders in drawing objects or environments I don’t have a problem and the perspective off whatever I’m working on is correct. With the heads though it is a struggle. This is my most recent sketch after watching this video. Honestly it’s the first face I’ve done that ‘works’. The other one is an example of how these tragedies normally turn out.
I have question but not sure where to post it so I'll put it here and hopefully Stan will answer. I don't understand how the generic, technical image of a perfectly proportioned head and face turns into the likeness of a real person. How do you go from the academic looking drawing to a real person's face? I hope I'm clear. Any help with answering this would be greatly appreciated.
