What knowledge is needed to be able to draw a very realistic face (that one would think as a person, not a cartoon) consistently from all perspectives, which would be easily recognized as the same character without counting on secondary characteristics? And without having to draw a portrait from life each time?
I know Loomis head construction to be useful but not much more.
May depend on what you consider "very realistic" but full understanding on the construction of the face and its realistic proportions, perspective, light and shadow, rendering, colour theory and values for starters come to mind. I probably forgot something too. Using reference (such as self-made sculpey bust) also helps.
Heavy amount of drawing and painting from life required.
