19-Second Loosest and Hatchet-Faced Face

by Polyvios Animations, August 22nd 2021 © 2021 Polyvios Animations

Done as part of a practice session with poses of 19 seconds in length.

My current goal is: Improve my understanding of the flexibility, elasticity, and plasticity of the face and expression forces, most and most quickly.

I'm sorry, not sorry for changing goals, but I've gotten a new one. This one is where I'm bettering my flexibility, elasticity and plasticity of the face and expressions forces, fairly quickly. So, this one is very caricatured. What do you think?

The excessive lines make it hard to read your intention, and to be certain how to interpret it, but reading the thick brown lines as forming the planes of the face, and the blue lines as a hairline and a pair of glasses, here is kind of how I would read your sketch:

The main change would be the angle of the side pieces of the glasses. They naturally follow the brow line to the top of the ears, so orthogonal to the center line and chin line of the face. You chose to draw them parallel to the face, following the circling motion of your crayon.

I am not certain about the nose, whether you tried to include a really big downward pointed nose (which would fit into your "hatchet face" description"), or if you wanted to abstract nose and mouth altogether to a featureless face, like it is used in short Loomis-like sketches.


Preparation for Manga drawing.


You look fluid in your strokes but id have to see the original work you referenced to see how they match up.

Gotcha covered. Coming soon.
