a round-trip learning experience

We are going to make a journey that begins in the way of seeing and drawing the human face, from the relationships between the parts, to the measures and the pieces that compose it as a whole whose representation does not differ in complexity to that of drawing anything else.


I'm sure you have a model out there that poses for you!

The materials we are going to use are paper, HB pencil and eraser. It is good that the edge of the paper has a relationship with a vertical line in the background (the frame of a door or a corner of the room), so that the resulting piece in the background is as important as the shape itself. And don't think about definable elements (chin, lips, nose...) Just the relationship of lines, angles, concavity and proportions.


If you don't have a model, try the reproduction of these two faces.


Analyze the shape of the bottom pieces (red color) with the same intensity as the rest. Notice that the edges touch the shape.

When drawing the interior, relate points by means of auxiliary lines that form certain angles with the edges and with themselves.

The resulting pieces can be very important for the socket.

The angles do not change, even if you change the format.

Now draw each of these models.

Remember. Background and angles. ...continue
