head_proportions_tutorial. by Lady2 head_proportions_tutorial. by Lady2
I'm starting a series of tutorials! This one was done a long time ago - my way of drawing has changed - but I hope that it will be still useful!

I encourage you to reach for all the books of A. Loomis. A great artist and a teacher.

I agree with everyone that this is a very good tutorial. What makes it so good is the way you explain it. I love that you have more tutorials but this is my favorite. Thank you so much for taking the time and effort to make this and put it up. It truly helped me.

Hey, I already did comment on this more than a year ago, but I just wanted to thank you again for this amazing tutorial.
I struggled with faces all the time since I started to draw, and I never really found something that "fitted" for me -until I found your Tutorial.
I never really practiced faces because I thought it was useless, but with help of this tutorial I finally felt like my faces really could be improved, and I am just.... overwhelmed by the improvement I did since back than.
There aren't words for how thankful I am. So again, thank you very very much for this Tutorial. Indirectly, you helped me starting to believe in myself again.

I know, I am far from being even half as good as you are. But thanks to you I believe I can do it, for the first time in years.
Thank you so very very much!

Yeah man I know the feeling. But once I was taught to simplify everything as basic shapes/form my skill shot upwards... Feels good to look back.

I am just amazed how much that Tutorial helped me :) I only wish I had something like that for bodys, too :/ Everything I tried out until know just doesn't "fit" for me. I tried circles, boxes, just drawing from photos, life, everything... :/

have you tried sycra on youtube or jetty jet (also youtube).Try xia taptara as well. studying the anatomy of different parts and learning the body piece by piece really helps.

OMIGOSH THANK YOU! Thank you very much for this simple but wonderful tutorial! I used to SUCK CRAP at drawing humans, specifically a human head and face, but now that I have discovered this- there is hope for me after all! All other tutorials on human heads are just so complicated or even too loose but yours is very easy to understand and follow, but the result actually looks proportionally correct, and from this tutorial still being basic, I can create lots of different people from it! So thanks, a ton! This is what I have been looking for, I'll surely check out your other tutorials. In the meantime, keep up your fabulous works!!
