Place model on the table.The table must be a minimum distance of 3 m. By drawing a.It is better if the distance is more.If you paint in the apartment, put a table with the model in one corner of the room, while they themselves are located in the opposite direction.Attach the model of the light source so that the light fell from above at an angle of 45 °.Eyes models should be at the level of your eyes.If you are just starting to paint, put his head full face.
Pick draperies.The background should be lighter shaded portions of the head and dark lighting.You can also use "optical
illusion", taking a light gray background.It will seem lighter than it is near the shaded parts of the model, and near the lit - on the contrary.
Schedule on the sheet anchor points.First, draw a vertical line approximately in the middle of the sheet.In height, it is the distance from the middle of the forehead to the chin.Draw the horizontal line of the eyes, nose, lips, and others.Line eyes pass across his face, the rest of the guide, you can simply schedule.
Mark the reference points and main line
Indicate the ratio of width and height of a person in its different parts.Schedule a common oval.Jot down the neckline.The proportions of length and width must be followed as closely as possible, otherwise it is very difficult to draw the individual parts of the face.
Mark the volume of the head.Surface extending to the back of the head is separated from the face.This is done using various types of hatching.Mark the proportions of the individual parts of the face.Schedule eye.Compare their proportions with the proportions of the head.Similarly mark the nose and mouth constantly comparing them with each other and with the dimensions of the mold head.With a light shading basic mark the surface of the head.Lighted leave white space.On the surface, apply a blackout shade.
Schedule the bulk of the head
Pass the plastic shape of the head.Inspect the model and determine which one surface moves to another.How sharp this transition?Some surfaces as it smoothly into one another, and they are separated by a little more than a thick shadow.Lighted shaded surface moving in sharply.The lower part of the face, if the lighting is installed on, smoother lines and rounded.
Note perspective.This is especially important when drawing the outer parts of the head.Notice how, and in what proportion reduced some surfaces.Ensure perspective.
Go to the finer detailing of the head.Determine how many of the surfaces of each part is composed, and these surfaces cooperate with each other.For example, the forehead is composed of five different surfaces, which are separated from each other by varying the density of the hatching.The same applies to the nose - it consists of several parts, which are usually not visible, but they must be built correctly visible.Make smooth transitions between the different surfaces.Do this by using a pencil shading.
