Basic head construction notes by dwaynebiddixart Basic head construction notes by dwaynebiddixart
Digital art: Dwayne Biddix
I was talking with :iconlovelybonez: and she asked me if I could do a quick tutorial on how to make sure you are drawing heads correctly. A lot of problems people have is to leave too little room for the head, making the head too thin and thus looking squished. Or they make faces too big.
So I am sharing the tried and true square/cube construction.
A head seen from the side fits neatly inside a cube. From the front it takes up around 3/4 of the square. So if you keep these in mind you can create 3/4 views of the head and ensure you have enough volume inside the head.
And I also showed you how to construct the head without the squares.
I would suggest doing a few head sketches using the square/cube over a few days to get your mind to see it that way, then do head sketches with the simpler construction. After a few days of that you should be able to do it without having to fully rely on these constructions.

Hope this helps!
Thanks
Dwayne

It just might, I have issues with the nose area on faces, so I think it will!

I want to practice soon, someone mentioned they see lots of Rina in my gallery, but not much of my other two girls, so I'll have to try drawing them.
