Mannequins over, and over…and over again

This naughty fellow is known as block-form mannequin, and it’s probably the one that can piss you off the most. Why? Because of the straight edges. If you get one angle just slightly wrong, the pose will simply be completely off. Thus, the frustration! I first copied the handouts of the Watts Atelier, then tried to figure out some from photos, directly. This is the second mannequin I studied, right after the Skeleton Mannequin

The next ones are made out of photos

The next ones are “ovoid” mannequins. Feeling a lot more like real people, and they are less frustrating, and more forgiving than the block form one!

The last page is a study from the handouts, while others are from real people.
Ah, Merry Christmas! 😀


The classic Asaro Head

I have been working on the asaro head recently, this time with an added complexity. This is actually the “Classic” model, while the previous one was simplified, and supposed to be memorized. I am actually trying to memorize this  as well, although I admit the facets are a lot, and hard to remember.

P.S. I am not drunk, the head actually does have two different sides, one easier, the other more resembling a real face.
