1. Look at photos
of real faces such as women you admire,
family, royalty, people from another era.
Exercise: Draw face
from a photo. Use a 12x12” piece of
paper/brown bag/ newspaper. Look only at
a photo. Do not look at your
sketch. Try to use a single line. Fill the full sheet. Salvage the good parts.
2. Look at masks. How do
features differ from country to country.
Which features are stylized, which exaggerated?
3. Draw the outine of a face. Draw half of a face within that.
4. Use an
anatomically correct shape for a head.
Split face into 1/3s below hair line:
eyes1/3 below hair line, nose ending
1/3 from chin, mouth between nose & chin. Then cut out anatomically incorrect features.
