The Loomis Method part 2

I can’t believe that I went through school and never heard the name Andrew Loomis??!! This is the second installment of my Loomis series on YouTube. I meant to publish the video tomorrow, on Thursday, which is when I usually publish but I pressed the wrong button. So here it is today. Anyway, this video explains how to measure the face and find the placement of the hairline, brow, bottom of the nose, and chin. It’s invaluable when trying to draw comic book characters; a very helpful method of measuring.

Let me know if it helps in the comments!

New You Tube Video: Drawing the Head

I’m extremely new to making You Tube videos and it’s really quite more difficult than people may think. I’m trying to make informational videos about drawing but I don’t want to go over a certain time period either and have the videos drag. I recently discovered an old master who has been around for awhile! Did I learn about this person in school? NO! I have no idea why not but, hey, better late than never, right? I made a video introducing Andrew Loomis’ method of drawing the human head. He is an absolute GENIUS when it comes to figure drawing. I definitely recommend reading his book Drawing the Head and Hands.

Let me know how I can improve my videos with a comment! Enjoy.

Ideas for You Tube Videos

It’s been an eternity since I made a new You Tube video but the time taken hasn’t been in vain. I’ve been restructuring how I present my content and concentrating on things that people want to learn. For example, my “how to draw hands” videos get the most views so I’m going to do more videos about foreshortening the fingers, dynamic hand positions, and measurements of the hand. I’m also trying to draw my comic book which means more videos about how to draw in the comic book style. I’ve been researching how to create basic construction of the human form (male and female) and I think those videos will be a lot of help as well. I’m also going to deliver on topics like composition, shading, and coloring.

Stay tuned because some really cool stuff is coming soon!
