Head Proportions Part 1 - Frontal View This is from the how to draw a head at any angle serious. I hope you enjoy and give me a like. Head proportions are difficult at time but with enough practice you can draw from your imagination any head at any angle without reference photos. Check out my facebook page where you can see my Oil Paintings, Pencil Drawing and Spray Paintings as well. more on the human head: Check out my website: where you can find a FREE PDF on the Loomis head!!!!!! if you havent seen part one yet I recommend viewing that first as there are some key concepts that are important to learn. As we learned in video one the simple structure for the head is a ball for the cranium and a triangular shape for the jaw. Loomis' approach for the cranium is a sphere with its sides cut off. This is an important concept to learn when drawing the head in different angles. From the side view if you look at the cranium it looks like a circle within a circle. So draw a ball and divide it in half horizontally to represent brow line and vertically to help you find the placement of the jaw and position of the ear. Now just try to refine as much as you can without shading to get used to these forms. For further study look at the cheeks and their bone structure . Aslo, See that there is a rythym from the top othe ear to the mouth which represent the cheek bone's shelf. At first you may have problems drawing the head accurately but with practice you will get used to all of these concepts. I recommend finding beauty magazines with lots of faces and drawing over them. First drawing the circle for the cranium and inner circle . then Dividing into thirds using parallel lines and so on. Drawing over faces like this at least 3 times before attempting a drawing is a good warm up and solidifies your understanding of the human head. In the upcoming weeks expect more videos on the different angles of the head, from extreme angles to more common poses. So stay tuned for those videos.

This tutorial covers the basic guidelines for facial proportions. Learning where features are placed on the face and how to use our pencil as a measurement tool allows us to create more accurate portraits.

In this video, I am using a plain old HB pencil! Try to stay within the HB-2B range for general sketching. Too hard of a graphite (the higher the H, the harder the graphite) is really light and can indent the paper easily if you press too hard. The higher the B, the softer the graphite, which will create darker marks!
