Understanding And Painting The Head
Drawing and painting the head is one of the most common assignments you'll have as an artist. Understanding the head will also give you so much mileage in terms of getting your fundamentals down tight! In this class I present all the important info I know about the human head, with emphasis on the useful elements you will always need to use!
Final head after taking the course. I really liked the approach shown in this course and the way planes were broken down
This course is golden. I only finished the first chapter yet but oh god it's so useful. Once you memorize the planes of the head and how they connect to each other - you are free and know what you're doing. I also return to it from time to time whenever I'm stuck in my drawings (usually noses) and it always helps. Not mentioning the great way Marco gives the information. Best investment so far! Totally worth every coin :)
What I love so much about this class is the mix of media that you have used - my heart sank when you did your first digital example because I don't really do digital, but the pencil sketches and watercolour stuff is brilliant. Having made that comment, you have inspired me to go back to my Wacom tablet and have another go and the results have been pretty good actually, so I have moved forwards in so many ways and will definitely go back to some more of your videos as you explain things really clearly. But first I'm going to do some studies and probably go back through this whole class again just to make sure I haven't missed anything because it was great. I attach my copy of your digital painting which turned out so much better than I expected. Thanks Marco...
Thank you so much for this class! I'm enjoying every minute, you're a really good teacher. I’ve been struggling so much with drawing faces and you’ve explained it so well.
Go through this stuff multiples times (like I did) to really let it sink in. This course helped me get past the simple Loomis method and add more structured complexity to the face, rather than just faking everying in over a Loomis head. I can keep refering back to this course when im having trouble with planes of the face.
