I also slipped into my old method at certain points, but I kept catching myself and that is why these ended up so messy. I also didn't get the chance to do more than a handful of them, and the ones for today will be in the next post. I think I need to re-evaluate my approach a bit before doing any more! As an artist, we are going to experience a lot of ups and downs. This is just part of the learning process, and it's okay. I'm reminding all of us, since I tend to forget that myself.
I happened across something I found really interesting the other day! It doesn't seem like the actual article is there anymore, which is a shame, but there is an excerpt from tumblr here . It is by Bartek Gawel, an art director, and he talks about some very useful measurements for drawing the head shape. I never knew about the forehead and the chin being somewhat in alignment! Give it a look, because it could prove to be very helpful for when your proportions feel off. Anything to make drawing profiles less difficult!
In addition to that, anatomy for sculptors has a little graphic on how the socket sits beneath the skin, something you might find helpful if you are drawing more from the skull like I am.
Take care everyone! Let me know if you have any questions.
