Head Anatomy 1, Week 3

Week of June 20
5h 42m of drawing

Had a dozen of my closest friends in SF for Interact. We're normally scattered across the continent, so I spent most of this week hosting dinner parties / playing DDR / walking around the city with them instead of drawing.


2h 40m drawing
I really like how well defined the planes of the face are defined in the Frankenstein lookalike (bottom-left)

The four faces in the right image were done with a 15 minute timer. They don't look great, but I'm happy to be getting reps in.

2h 18m
Left: Unfinished

Middle and right: quite happy with these, feeling comfortable with drawing faces in 30 minutes.

Feeling similar to how I did at the end of 3 weeks of figure drawing

  • I'm happy with my improvement
  • I'm consistent with my quality given 30 minutes
  • There's room for improvement, but I'll have to study more theory
  • I feel ready to move onto the next topic: perspective!
