Playing with Head Shapes – Thumbnail Sketch Critique
Mark as Completed
This is my next try of thumbnailing. This time I took Mike Akerfeldt. I really tried to take care of time and just focused on what I had in mind. Maybe the sketches doesn't look good but they contain the things I wanted to try. The final sketch (the big one) is something I wanttake to Abstraction. Any feedback is appreciated.
After valuable feedback, I tried again with singer Dani Filth. My goal was sketching fast but still keep the important information readable. Important for me was that the basic head shape becomes visible and the distribution and proportion of the facials can be recognized. After trying different head shapes I stick to the squared shape and tried to make it more recognizable. All together I spend about 25 minutes on this exercise now. I looks pretty messy but I want to work it out later and for me it is understandable.
I felt more comfortable this time. It was pretty fast sketch not thinking too much about it. I appreciate any feedback.
I am still getting stuck in the same headshape. Maybe I should create a template with different headshapes to experiment on.
Hello Court, I am enjoying the assignment.. but struggling to generate a wide variety of head shapes.. once I've found one that seems ok I kinda get stuck with it. Found that using different drawing tools really helped.. and nearly always spent too long on each sketch. But... it was fun!!! :) Ps. apologies for poor image quality but no scanner at this end. PPs. and couldn't find all the original images I worked from for Dan & Ben.
I started my first "subject". This is my best thumbnail so far. I cleaned it up so that it is more recognizable. But it takes me still very long to finish a thumbnail.
Hi this is assignment for thumbnail sketch lesson. Last one is snoop dogg and rest of other photos are the same person even though they are all different
Hello everyone, I'm happy to do my first post in this great and exciting new community! This is my first try of thumbnail sketches of the charismatic Tommy Lee Jones. I'm not shure if there is one with enought likeness to go furher with a rough sketch. I will have to look for more likeness I guess. Happy drawings to everyone!
I want to have my thumb sketch critique but I don't know how to post it. I don't have a smart phone and Facebook either. I practice them with Hillary photos. I'll practice them continue.
