I was asked by Rebecca to show my own tutorial(s) here. So i’ll just copy-paste what i have on my thread
here is the beginning
Ive found this web site: http://www.boneclones.com[color=white] and Ive bumped into this image with the 2 calf skulls. This will be my next drawing. Now, what I am going to do is use the elements that I like, and change the rest of it! [/color]
First step: Im starting with the major volume. Be very careful with paging you wont like to find yourself running out of page or asymmetry when it is a must. Most important thing during the whole drawing process DO NOT APLY PREASURE ON THE PENCIL! Whatever you do, dont use blacks. Youll find yourself messing it all up and not being able to erase anything. At this early stage, just let the line flow, let gravity do its thing on your pencil, you just control its direction. You can use the ruler to control your proportions and symmetry, but I prefer to do it by hand, so that I wont become dependent on it. Im drawing the eye sockets, jaw and nose, the symmetry axis joining, etc, only at the basic level.
Second step: digging into big details. And that is the next major volumes/forms on your shape. I am also thinking what I like and what Im changing I dont like the jaw its kind of deformed so Ill get my own design, more real, Ill lengthen the skull a little, ageing the animal, I dont like the teeth so theyll suffer some modifications.
If theres a chance to use the eraser and modify big things, I think this is the best one! (I mean perspective, symmetry, proportions very important for the human figure)
