Found this picture here and really liked the hair color so I tried to do the Loomis method on her:
Where is the reference photo Stan is working from please? I’m all good drawing along but learn more when I can see the choices being made . When I try and apply lessons on my own references I find it difficult
Okay, having another go at it before hitting the sack. This is probably my tenth try after doing more practice.
My first attempt. I have to work on the proportions. Even with the guided lines, I can't grasp how to angle the face correctly.
Like some of the others here, I tried following along with the demo. Wasn't expecting much but it didn't turn out terrible I often have trouble (or am hesitant) to draw in the features after drawing the foundations, both in portraits and figures. Hopefully, this will help me overcome that nervousness/hesitancy
Got a few pages of the Loomis Head down already. I'm somewhat getting the hang of it bit by bit
Attempted to copy draw the average Loomis Head. Please check. The ‘5’ is just something I’m using to mark how many heads I’m drawing throughout the course.
Hey guys! I bought today premium version of drawing a portrait! Haven't started watching yet but I draw a portrait before. I didn't try to copy exactly like it's on referance but I would like to know if there is something wrong? (I'm sure it is). I am very excited that this course include hair drawing because I don't really like the way I did it. I am trying to draw at least one portrait and I will post one after finishing this entire course. Please leave some feedback, I will appreciate it a lot :)
Hey I am new here. I have a question. In thi sdemonstration video, If the line from the ear to the brows and to the bottom of the nose go upwards, it indicates, that the person is looking up. But once the chin is drawn, it does not look like that anymore..
In the first portrait (3 weeks ago) I applied the Loomis head for the first time. This morning I joined the portrait session again, but had to work more intuitively - I forgot ‘how to’ - ….. guess more Loomis study is necessary before I don’t have to think about how to use this technique.
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?
