Lesson 2: Doodling the Face 

By Mike Acerra 

#LuxQuarantineArtClub #luxcorner

In this lesson, we will learn to doodle three views of the head. The side, or profile view, the front view, and the three-quarter view.  We will rely on the S and C rules we learned in the last lesson.

 

Profile View of the Head

 In this video, we learn how to draw the side view or profile view of the head. We will use the number nine to help us organize the head into different parts.

Doodling the Front View of the Head

In this video, we will cover doodling the front view head so that all parts are placed correctly. You will learn to utilize an egg shape to divide the face evenly in half horizontally and vertically to ensure symmetry and proper eye placement.

Doodling the 3/4 view of the face

 The three-quarter view is the view between the front view and the profile (side view). When we draw the three-quarter view we will use another “rule of nine”. 

Remember that this is doodling, so it should be fun and even funny!  There is a long tradition of drawing people out of proportion and incorrectly on purpose.  Leonardo da Vinci’s comedians are a very famous drawing of caricatures, shown below:

The French Impressionist painter, Claude Monet, made his classmates laugh when he would doodle funny pictures of their teachers.  Shown below.
