Christmas is done. I managed to snag term 3 during the sale too. I'm currently drawing headshapes (no jaw included, 5 different perspectives) and I'm aiming for 50 of each. They look like shit at the moment. Which is good and expected. Now I'll have something ugly to look at when I can draw better :=)
I'm averaging around 1 complete set per 30min (5 heads).
2 hours a day will yield around 4 sets of heads (20 heads).
Assuming I keep the same pace or get quicker I'll have them done in 12 days or less.
After that I'll move on to the jaw.
I kind of want to drag things out a bit, I could go ham and draw like a mfker and finish 50 ugly headshapes in one day but I'm not sure how much would actually stick in terms of... muscle memory maybe?
I'm struggling with circles, so the heads look a bit off right now. I'm thinking of doing some warmups drawing only circles for 5 minutes each day.
I think the ovals for the top red head are way too wide, to me it sort of gives the impression that the face features have to be crammed together. I'm not completely certain of what the ovals represent yet except that they're helpful for specifying head direction. I might learn that later in the video. Until then monkey see monkey do.
Here are my first ever jawless headshapes :>
Red = Used photoshops ellipse tool.
So schedule right now:
5 min warmup drawing circles
30 min sessions of drawing headshapes
Total of 2 hours a day.
