In Part one you'll get a very abbreviated anatomy lesson - bones and side views, and top and bottom views, even an "explodo-view". It's here you'll start getting an introduction to adding volume - three dimensions - to the head and face. It's here you'll also catch your first wind of "Mr. Johnny Average Head".
In Part II you'll get the front view - a two dimensional breakdown of the main horizontal divisions of the face. These are the landmarks you'll see on everybody's face, and not to worry, we're going to get into the divisions of the head and face s - l - o - w - l - y, so they'll sink in and you'll remember them. Make sure you do all the exercises.
This is your first exercise. Here you'll incorporate a format as a guideline for the horizontal divisions. You'll also see familiar things like "negative space". I know you haven't forgotten about those. :-)
Using the same methods you saw in Part II, you'll learn about the side view of the face and head. Has it's own separate exercise section and print outs. And of course an animation.
In this part - part V, you'll begin combining everything you know to build a three dimensional head - and from any angle. This lesson got huge and a lot more will be added over tine, but for now, these seven sections will supply you with all the foundation you'll need to build symmetric or distorted heads. You'll do this by getting a little more steeped in perspective. You'll also see the "Mr. Average Head Miter Box" and learn to build your own for both realistic and hilarious results.
Part V Section summaries:
Yes, the moment you've all been waiting for - well, almost. This is where you'll learn about and incorporate vertical guidelines into your Miter boxes. You'll also learn the major accepted landmarks in drawing a realistic face - which will only springboard your caricature drawing. And it'll all come together in Mr. Johnny Average Face. But it won't be that big of a step - you've been building towards this all along.
Part VII extra session: really getting into those three dimensional drawings. Here you'll review and really focus on understanding cubes, cuboid shapes, and the role block-drawing can play in developing your feel for drawing palpable volume in your creations.
