Loomis Study- Long Face

I'm now on a page which features all these different head types. In theory I am meant to apply the ball and plane technique when studying these head types, but sometimes it helps to apply the construction thoroughly by your own means along with that technique.

Loomis Study- Batch of Heads Using Ball and Plane Method

Spent the past few days trying to work on these heads that Loomis illustrated with some theory behind this method. It took me a while to work out how to draw that baby head, but I can now progress onto the next page, which featured his theory being applied to different head types.

2 Drawings... Studied from the Same Head

 It took me twice to apply Loomis' ball and plane technique onto this particular. The above picture may be loosely done, but it's more faithful to the original than my first attempt.

Doodles, Life Drawing, and a Skull

 I thought I group a eclectic bunch of drawings together in one post. So above was I life sketch I did yesterday, focusing on some bikes being locked up on a fence of a tree.

Today, I was applying the ball and plane technique from Loomis on a skull. It worked out okay, although not too distinctive as a skull, but I was able to apply the technique well enough that I might progress onto the next page of the book.
And these are some doodles I did earlier in the week. I seemed to have King Rollo on the mind when doodling that day.

Loomis Study- The Ball and Plane Method- Applying the Theory...Much Better!

I am eventually learning the process behind this methodology of drawing faces. I do have some doodles to upload on the blog, but they just need to be scanned.

Loomis Study- The Ball and Plane Method-Another Woman's Head

I have now got onto another page, in which Loomis gives some personal advice about his method on drawing heads. So I am trying out the heads on that page to see if his theories have sunk in.

Loomis Study- The Ball and Plane Method- Applying the Theory on a Woman Head

It is close, but no cigar to the original drawing done in the book

Doodles- 31st March 2011

I try and avoid posting doodles onto this blog, but as I wasn't that productive with drawing, I thought I show you this page of doodles I did yesterday.
