How Red Draws Heads Tutorial by RedRodent How Red Draws Heads Tutorial by RedRodent
Warning, pretty big file

Did this up for a buddy of mine who told me he's struggling with drawing heads at odd angles. Since I've been doing a lot of practice in that area, I thought I'd give doing a tutorial a shot!

Part 2 to follow, perhaps. I'm thinking I'll show a 3/4 rear shot for that one. A less commonly used angle, but an important one to master.

I don't claim to be an expert here, I'm just trying to show ya'll how I do things (I'm sort of re-learning as I go, in fact! :XD: 'Teaching' puts things into a different perspective). I hope it helps.

Critique of my method is encouraged if you see I'm doing something wrong and can help me out, or if you see I how could improve something, please let me know! I really appreciate any tips I can get ;P

Same goes for all my deviations, really :aww: I want to get better! That's a big part of why I'm here. =D

Wow! I sould have looked at this sooner! I usually start with a circle, then the nose (with appropriate size) then connect it to the head for the muzzle, and free-draw from there. Your tutorial should make drawing heads much easier.

Actually, I've been starting to merge styles. It's easier to draw a head in good proportions if you do it the way you just stated ;)

I'm glad to hear it! :) I really should do another tutorial some time, with different angles, and hopefully improved art quality! :XD:
