Lesson 6 - Katie Rice heads

Whoooee. This was tricky shit. It was like i was learning head construction all over again. You can see that there's a lot of problems with these.

The most trouble i had was with perspective and proportion. The space between face parts is off for a lot of the drawings, and the faces themselves are squahed and stretched wrongly. Eyes don't look like they're on a 3d head, but tend to float around the face. The noses and lips are ok. I'm somewhat happy with those. The jaws were interesting. I experimented a little with how to draw them when constructing the head. At the start, i made broad ovals and then sketched in the details. Later on, i actually draw the shape of the jaw descending from the skull. This seemed to work the best.

The hair was fun because it looks like the hair is draped on the drawing as an afterthought, but it ends up completing it. Even though these sketches of Katie's ooze style, and it was hard to keep up while learning the lessons hidden within, it was still fun and educational.

Wow Lesson 6 already. You lucky muthuh.... Great stuff. I love the heads you did. I personally dont see why John talks her up so much, but I guess he know what he's talking about. Great stuff nonetheless.
