Today I actually woke up wanting to draw these facial plane studies. I’m not quite sure why. It’s possible that I’m going insane. I believe what happened was that I started dreaming about trying to work out the planes of the face. The two facial plane studies are both from Andrew Loomis’ Drawing the Head and Hands. Apparently they made a strong enough impression on me to work their way into my dreams so I decided to finally try drawing them out. It was quite interesting though I was definitely a bit off on the proportions.
Of course I did also promise to work on my figure drawing. That’s what the stick people are for. Not exactly the most fleshed out figures but that’s pretty much still where I’m at right now. Trying to draw an actual fully fleshed out figure still feels daunting. I need a reference photo for it and then it just feels like copying. I’ll just have to work my way up to it slowly over time. I’ll get there eventually.
