What Happens When You Put Flesh on Bones
Artwork by Mary, Drawing Academy student
Prior to commencing this exercise I looked at several skulls and facial muscle references, viewed from different angles, to get an idea of what lies under the skin.
At first glance all the diagrams looked the same. Closer inspection revealed quite a lot of differences, which makes sense as every face is unique.
I was so surprised at the third stage when I began to see the face emerge, as I’ve not been able to draw a ‘convincing’ face from my imagination before.
