Head Proportion

While working on these I have DaVinci, Loomis, Reilly, Goldfinger, and the Golden Ratio masks out, along with a collection of my old diagrams.

On this profile I started with bell jar  and worked on figuring out what moves forward and what moves back from the front facial plane.

Graph paper skulls

The top set were done using the bell jar heads from the last post as a template, keeping everything flat.  I used the photographs of a skull sculpture in Eliot Goldfinger's Human Anatomy for Artists (p 326-327) as reference for the lower set.

Bell jar head experiment

No foreshortening/compression, just sliding the features along the curve of the ellipse, keeping the proportions consistent.  Not that they don't look weird, but I expected them to look weirder.

Out sketching people

Coffee house and food court.  It's been a while.
