Drawing the Head & Hands

The demand for these great books has been high ever since they were written and they have seen many editions. Unfortunately, they are out of print except for some expensive used editions or newer chopped up versions printed by Walter Foster as Drawing: The Head and Drawing: Figures in Action.

But… the incredibly awesome news is that some scanned archives of the original books in their entirety are available on the web! To my knowledge, all of these books are in the public domain and therefore free to distribute for educational use.

Each pdf is linked to its corresponding book cover image above. Seeing Ourselves: If so, naughty naughty.

It makes them hard to compare :. If they were all from the same photo, read Loomis pages , at least.

Here are your gesture drawings. Someone else made the comment that the torso doesn't seem to join in on the motion, and you replied that there isn't really much motion -- the model was static.

True -- the model wasn't moving. That doesn't mean there was no tension in the torso, though.

Here's an annotated version of the figure reference you were using: Most readings, when they talk about gesture drawings, tell you to start with the so-called action line of the figure, which I've marked here in blue. It is, more or less, the spine of the model.

I think the action line is hard to see, and sometimes lies.

If you want to make an extremely rhythmic drawing -- say, of a nude woman dancing ballet -- then damn, you better use an action line. If you want to draw something more solidly constructed, I recommend the lines I've traced in red. They have some big advantages: their height and acuteness help divide male from female torsos.

They are visible -- action lines are guesses; these are right there to be observed. They'll eventually be drawn anyway; action lines convey a lot of useful information, but they have to eventually be concealed, or left as visible signs of construction.

Get those two angles right, and then you'll probably properly place the ribcage and the hips. Build out the limbs in terms relative to those angles, and you have an excellent layout to start drawing in light and shadow.

Then, minutes puts you here: A perfect thing of beauty?

Not even -- I drew his shoulders very broad, which lost me the telling arc of his neck : Still, it is a pretty firm record of what the model was doing; if I wanted to use this gesture later, I have everything I need.

The oval is a bit more tricky. From the center and top of the circle, divide that area into thirds, and this will give you the top of the oval.

Do the same at the bottom. Compare the size of the front plane to the size of the side plane. The top portion of the oval falls on the corner of the forehead, where the front plane meets the side plane.

The line on the front plane represents the brow so pay attention to the angle from one brow to the other. If the head is tilted up, the angle will point up and if the head is tilted down, the angle will point down. The degree of the tilt will determine how steep to make this line.

I like to use the angle from the ear to the brow. Then, at the base of the vertical line, draw a curve identical the the brow line.The sizes are important here.

If the head is tilted up, the angle will point up and if the head is tilted down, the angle will point down. Michael Shapcott. Remember that every person has individual proportions that will be different from the average loomis head.
