Day #074 – Fun with a Pencil Part IX

Did another page of notes and drawings from Andrew Loomis’ Fun with a Pencil.

I find these harder to copy than I should considering the point of the book is to break the faces down into core shapes so that it’s almost impossible to go wrong… well I often feel like I am going wrong and it’s quite irritating!

Interesting to play around with expressions though. He makes the point in the book that you should check your own expressions to get a ‘feel’ for what you’re drawing and that’s a very good tip! Even if you’re not looking in a mirror you can pull a face and realize, with some accuracy, where the various facial features are going.
