Sketch work tips for 29 faces blogging

Hi Everyone :0)

I thought that I would share some sketch ideas.
Next month Martha is starting 29 faces, blogging a face a day in May.

The face does not have to be completed, it can be a simple sketch
or a completed painting, sculpture etc.

The face can be made in any medium.

Below are some inspirational images/tips to get you
thinking of how to create 29 different faces :0)

General Drawing Tips 

·          Rather try to "suggest" features on your fashion design figure than drawing it in, and if in doubt – don’t draw it in at all.

·          Features on figures for fashion design are often smaller than you think. For instance, the hand can almost entirely cover the face. Fashion hands, although exaggerated, should always be in proportion to the body.

·          Ears and eyes are in line with each other between the nose and the eyebrows.

·          Eyes are positioned halfway up the head, often we draw them higher up – it’s a common mistake.

·          Eyes are generally positioned one eye-width apart.

·          The iris of the eye is half covered by the upper eyelid and this creates a shadow on the eyeball.

·          Eyelashes become bushier and thicker towards the outer corners of the eye. Bottom lashes are shorter.

·          The bottom lip is generally always fuller than the top lip.

·          Lips are not drawn in a straight line as they curve horizontally around the face.

·          Rather than drawing teeth individually, suggest it by drawing a shadow in between each individual tooth.

·          The nose actually starts at the forehead and there is an indentation where the bone ends and the cartilage begins.

·          Made up of planes that form the sides top and the base, the nose has a ball at the bottom and wings on either side where the nostrils flare.
