Drawing the Head ~ Andrew Loomis Method ~ Review (Blog #2)

May 29, 2017


     So when I popped back into drawing again and I realized how much I enjoy drawing people I invested in the book, "Drawing The Head & Hands" by Andrew Loomis.  Investing time in reading the book in it's entirety, I learned a lot that was different from how I had been taught years before. 

    Ultimately I feel that it helped me draw the head better and I began to find out that there are truly different ways in which to approach drawing the head. On the left side picture here, is an example pencil drawing I did quite awhile back after reading his book. 

     I essentially learned many of his techniques, but the major technique that I seem to use quite often is starting a drawing of the head with the eyebrows as a foundational starting point. When I use his technique I always feel that I can capture the correct formations of the head better and eventually quicker. The quicker part though I attribute to continuous daily practice.

       It's not to say that the other ways don't work too, but I found for myself that this technique really helped me!

      I highly recommend investing in this book or finding it at a local library and maybe trying to start with the eyebrows as your foundational point when drawing the head. 

      I would also love to hear from you if you try any of his techniques out in the comment section. With that in mind ... Art on...Art onward!
