Karina’s skull

I’ve spent the last couple of evenings working on this lateral skull drawing on my iPad Pro. I started with a comic marker portrait of Karina that I made in my sketchbook a few weeks ago, which I uploaded to my iPad. I was teaching today and spent all the quiet moments in class examining my students jaw lines to try to understand variations in the lengths and shapes of their mandibles from the side because that’s what I was struggling the most to figure out how to draw here. My husband also bought me a medical skull model, used for anatomy classes, which is very useful – seeing the skull in 3D makes a huge difference to understanding how it all fits together. At the moment my fascination with facial anatomy is growing the more I draw it!
