Gesture head - 5

by Amurphyr, May 3rd 2020 © 2020 Amurphyr

Done as part of a 30 minute class.

My current goal is: Improve at correctly capturing the overall proportions of the human form


Hi, Amurphyr! I'd first like to say that I'm glad you decided to sketch and post it, it helps with learning and it also shows you're dedicated to this. A good tip that I'd like to pass on to you is using referance (pictures, images) on the side, using large body shapes (by simplifying body parts, like the head, into normal shapes, you can learn more about composition and proportion), and practicing using 3D shapes. You tried to draw the head looking down, but your lines for the eyes and other stuff is completely flat. If you bent it to fit the head shape, it would help a lot more. Overal, I think you did a fair job and I hope that art makes you happy xxx
