Hi! So I bet some of you want to learn how to draw. Well that's a fine choice and I'm here to help get you on the right track. There is a fair bit of knowledge that isn't obvious that can be a lot of help! Not sure if I am right for you? Here is my art blog. Now you can make that decision for yourself.

So this is how this thread works. Everyone gets one credit for free.
Now you can use that credit to post something you have drawn and I will supply useful wisdom drawn from my several years of experience. I will then supply you with an assignment. When you come back and turn in that assignment I will give you another credit. Which you can then use any time to repeat the process all over again!

My methods are all about long term growth and very little about short term solutions. So while you may ask for help about a very specific thing I may just turn around and give you what you need instead of what you wanted.

I know that a lot of folks out there struggle to keep their emotions in check and that can make this a lot harder for you than it has to be. I'm sorry there isn't a lot I can do about that, but know that you are not alone, please check out the Youtube channel School of Life. And I will be here when you are ready.

Good luck, have fun.

This is a quick sketch i did 2 weeks ago. How can I improve it If you don't mind answering? I know I'm a bit late n' stuff but I was too nervous to upload my drawings a month ago because I didn't think they were that spicy and all. (I dunno how the frick to upload images correctly so I'm just putting in a link and hoping for the best)

That is quite alright. I said I will be here when you are ready and I meant it. Thank you for sharing your work.

From what I can see, you have spent some time paying attention to the basic human proportions of the head, the ears aligned with the nose, the eyes halfway on the head. You will be able to push that further by looking into more ways to measure.

Check out this pay what you want guide that discusses various ways to look at your drawings and references. I know not everyone has the benefit of expending money on things so 0 dollars is an option.

If we look at an excerpt from Drawing the Head & Hands by Andrew Loomis.

[Image: 7glgYcy.png]

He spends a lot more effort measuring the horizontal divisions than the vertical. Both are equally important but for right now I believe that focusing on horizontal proportions will benefit you greatly.

By using the eye's width as a unit of measurement you can see that there is one eye's worth of distance between the two. Something that not many bring up however what is also worth noting is that from a straight on view, there is about an eye's length on either side as well.

For your first assignment, I want you to use the accuracy tutorials to come up with 5 new observations you haven't noticed before about how the head is measured. Come up with your own if you like. Try to focus on horizontal observations but if you find others feel free to add them to your list. Note how they change when the head is viewed at different angles. How do they change? Tell me.

For the drawing section. I want you to copy the two heads denoted above. Do not trace, instead rely on the measurements provided and the techniques in the accuracy tutorial to guide you. Good luck!
