Art Video of the Week - How to Draw the Head

This week, Stan from Proko takes us through the essential lessons from Andrew Loomis' Drawing the Head and Hands.

If you're not familiar with Andrew Loomis, he was an American artist and illustrator who was very well known for his many books on art instruction. His techniques are still very widely used and his approach allows for a level of realism in absence of reference photos.

In this video, Stan gives a basic rundown of the essentials of the technique, but bear in mind that the book by Loomis is actually quite extensive, so this is just a start.

If you're interested in the books, they have been republished by Titan Books and can be found on Amazon. I have this book as well as Figure Drawing for all it's Worth. Both are superb.
