Proko Tutorials by Outrack Proko Tutorials by Outrack
A pretty awesome guy named Stan Prokopenko started a video series on Youtube where he covers the basics of Andrew Loomis' art, with an absorbing teaching style that makes them fun to watch as well as being very informative. There are a lot of aspects of the construction of the face I didn't "get" until I started watching (especially with the placement of the jawline and relation to the neck when the head's tilted upwards) and I definitely feel like I've improved by working through them. If interested, you can find them here.

I also started playing around with Sai's brush settings and was able to replicate the look and feel of drawing with a pencil (which you can see on the eye and nose), and am now totally comfortable drawing in the application. This was a great warm-up for the 5 Hands assignment in the Sketch-Books group which I'll start working on right now.

C&C is always appreciated! I'll move this image to scraps in around a week and upload a revised version with facial features added to the head templates.

First ever critique so bear with me

Ah hell yeah Stan Prokoprenko. I've been showing him to a few friends of mine and some have resorted to calling him Broko.

You've nailed the Loomis method down perfectly. Good job on the odd angle's aspect as that has always frustrated me to no end. I must say however that it looks like you copied his nose and eye tutorial, as if you were following a step by step procedure when watching his videos. What I find to be most educational is that one must learn his advice, seek out an image and then attempt to draw that using the techniques and tips offered before hand.

All in all though, your foundations for the head is top notch and I hope you many successful art works from you in the future!

Thanks, pity he's slowed down with them but the Ctrl+Paint vids have fill the void nicely.
