    Day 30

    Yesterday I finished the Anatomy of head and neck course. Now, with a more solid knowledge on anatomy, I’m coming back to Huston’s constructive head drawing course.

    In this week’s assignment the topic was hair, so here are some quick sketches mainly focused on hair.

    Day 35

    One more day of constructive head drawing. This time the focus was on shape design, one of my favorite parts of the course so far.

    For this assignment I did some quick studies (5 to 10 min each) experimenting with materials, styles and approaches.

    Day 39 & 40

    During these days I spent some time doing some more quick sketches, but this time from imagination only. I’m really getting more confortable with drawing the head in any angle and it’s been a lot of fun experimenting with the ballpoint pen

    Day 41

    Now that I’m more acquainted and confortable with head drawing I feel like I can focus on more advanced topics. During the last months I studied mainly proportions, structure, facial features and a little bit of anatomy, as well as some side topics such as differences between genders, effects of aging, etc. This knowledge allowed me to get more confident when drawing heads from imagination and observation, but, until this point, the most of my drawings have neutral poses and expressions.

    So, From now on, I plan to delve deeper into anatomical studies, trying to understand the facial muscles and their behaviour in order to create lively facial expressions in my drawings. Today I took my first step in that direction.

    My plan is to study small groups of facial muscles, each at a time, and improve my knowledge reading about them, drawing over photos and masterwork as well as drawing my own studies from obserevation and imagination.

    I’m starting with some muscles of the frontal, glabellar and orbital regions (Frontalis, corrugator muscles and orbicularis oculi), and here are some studies I did today

    Day 42

    One more day of facial muscles studies. This time I focused on the nasal and midface muscles.

    Just like yesterday my study was divided in three steps: first I read about the muscles and observed them on actual expressions, then I made photo draw overs and lastly drew from observation. Even though My focus today was on the nasal region muscles, I’ve also tried to include the muscles I studied yesterday. I’m having a lot of fun with these studies, even if I have to remember names like “Levator Labii Superioris Alaeque Nasi”

    Day 43

    Today I focused on the mouth region muscles and did some photographic studies with draw overs. The mouth is a really complex region with many muscles, but still it was really nice to study it. Tomorrow I’m going to draw some more mouths from observation and then progress to other muscle groups, such as the neck muscles.

    Day 44

    At this day I did some more studies concerning the muscles of the mouth region. While in the last study I did photo studies only, this time I drew exclusively from observation.
