The head and neck, as we all know, are an ever-changing structure. First of all, it’s rarely static and there are many factors that make us look different besides emotions. Such as Age, Ethnicity, Gender, Body type.
In this book, these critical features and other questions are going to be analyzed and described as to how they affect the form of a person’s head. That’s where understanding the form of the face and head comes from.
A Grid for the form! Visual and image information including 3D models, photos and color-coding. From simple to a complex system, elements being broken down into block-outs and then developed into detailed realistic shapes. These key parts are essential in all of our books. It is important for an artist to have this structured approach.
