Does anybody know where this distance comes from?

Sorry for poor my English, but I looks like that you can make a parallele line of the front nose from the nose wing.

From observation of an actual live model. Folks, quit depending so much on drawing formulas and get back to some basic observational sketching.

Nice question! I wouldn't mind hearing the answer myself...but I suspect it's quite variable, depending on the nose, brow, and gender.

Side plane drawing 1. The lips sit between the nose and the chin 1/3 away from the nose, correct?

Bottom of the lips sits 1/3 between chin and nose :-)

Side planes practice trying to include the neck movement with It. If any advice please share. Greetings.

Really nice! Just a note on anatomy: The muscle you've indicated running from behind the ear to the pit of the neck, wouldn't be in a curve like that, I think Hope this helps :)

A few side heads. A hell of a long way to go but it’s beginning to feel like I’m finding my fingers - if you know what I mean. The variation between individuals is interesting.

Here’s my attempt at a side view. My main concern was that the neck looks a bit too thin? I added a bit of colour because I get distracted easily

Thanks Rebecca, yes something doesn’t look quite right. Do you mean the angle where the neck connects to the chest or the head?

You can always take a photo of yourself in that pose and see how your neck looks and where's the connection point. I think the problem is not the thickness, but in the curvature of the front side of the neck. In that position the line should curve in a little. In your drawing it's actually curving out and that's what looks odd to me.

Hi! Thank you for the advice, it all makes perfect sense and I will work towards the things you have mentioned. I didn’t intend to go this far originally so I really roughed in the outline which I admit is horrible. I’ll try to avoid that from now on and focus on creating better lines. I agree on the hair and colour also. Hopefully I can pick ip some tips for the hair towards the end of the course. Thanks again for your tips :)

Gino, I really like these! Perhaps the upper right side one is a bit on the thin side, but still great! -Cheers

Marco, I really like this - you've gotten the front of the profile very well. The curve to the neck seems a bit wonky, but still - great work! -Cheers
