can someone help me understand this loomis plate? I made my own copy just to try to wrap my head around it.
I'm not usually really meticulous about this kind of thing but loomis books have been really helpful so I want to understand.
I get that the head is 3 and 1/2 units high, and 3 and a half units wide including ears,
but he loses me when he says "three and one half units from tip of the nose to the back of the head"
does he mean the exact back of the head as in parallel to the eye?
the numbers on the plate don't seem to make sense either, the numbers I have circled on my right plate
seems to coincide more with what the text says, like he doesn't make any mention of the numbers 1-5 across
the browridge and how to measure that. the line placement in relation to all the features seems like a really useful tool
for measuring things but
I need to understand the methodology. halp, please.

I think hes talking tips yeah? like tip of the nose is the furthest out tip and so is back of the head, so the neck should never be parallel with the back of the head.

But if you take note of the differences between yours and his is yours is more square, where as his is more fluid and circular, although its in a square it doesnt mean you need to do everything straight, if you draw a circular line from the tip of the nose it should reach the perfect part for back of the head, see how they did it in the page you posted? how its circular?

Anyways hope that helps??

they're good. im not sure on critism or constructive feedback because im not entirely sure on your direction.

I love the washed out colours, more than anything else in the work, i enjoy the drawings too, so again not sure where you're going what your plans are, i like them.

What are your materials?

i enjoy https://www.instagram.com/p/BNrrCwYl_kP/?taken-by=maghx_em the most.

Thx for the feedback. Ive just been using random filters fuckin around, dont really have much experience. Been doodling/drawing with pen and pencil my whole life.

That sucks about the housefire.
I hope this doesnt come off as offence, but when i first seen your work i thought it would be perfect for political/social commentary, like you know those political cartoons? i think your syle would be wonderful for that, i think you should give it a go, find a social issue and draw about it and see how it turns out.
I mostly say this because your style is kind of haunting and dark but at the same time has a certain serenity to it which balances it all out and you kind of change in between the darkness and the calmness.

So if you want a direction to jump off on, i'd say find a current affair or political issue and do a drawing about it, do a trump cartoon where hes picking some person for his cabinet or whatever i dunno lol.

This is my first try on it. What do you guys think about it? How can I improve?

Share your sculptures, also. Let's share art.

It's great. Now to learn textures! That's where you really add the life to these guys.

Keep at it and also realize that when you finish them with a gloss or such, they'll stand out ten times more than they do raw.

Stay away from that store. Their prices are bad and their owners are crazy assholes.

As for the clay, depends on what you want to do. Adobe is great for larger stuff. Scratch is a fun one. Sculpey is what most people start with nowadays and is annoven bake one. There's even some decent clays that you could mix up on your own out of corn starch and paper mache and any number of mineral additives.

Oh, also paper mache can be fun. Experiment! You can just mix hot glue with sawdust and then sculpt it while warm even, or use a hair dryer to keep it warm.
