Andrew Loomis Technique? WTF? (moved from Fine Art)
(This isn't quite Fine art, but it is about the basics, so I'll use this board).
So recently I've been trying to imitate Andrew Loomis' way of constructing the face, because it's a proper formula. I'm stuck.
Usually what I do, is I free-hand draw the face and fix mistakes accordingly. This isn't productive. I've read a bit about Loomis' technique and tried to apply it by using a 3D rendered sphere with the cranium cut off, as an under laid base to draw from.
This is the result. The face is waay too narrow or elongated, but following the proportions and curves of the sphere, technically, it's supposed to be correct, isn't it? What am I doing wrong?
I might not be seeing the obvious, but I'm just confused right now. Any tips?
