DRAWING THE STRUCTURE OF THE HEAD
This course will investigate the structure of the three-dimensional human head as it is rendered onto the two-dimensional plane as in a drawing.
Through repeated exercises and practice you will find yourself getting comfortable with the proportions of the main dimensions as well as the individual features of the head and their relationships to each other. Then you will look at how these elements change as the head begins to rotate around an axis from face-on to a profile view.
By applying the ellipse and ideas of perspective to the structure you will start to develop a clearer understanding of the three-dimensional form in space.
You'll start with some simple models of the head and then move on through practice using the Reilly and the Loomis methods as useful frameworks or models as a sound basis for the development of individual character.
