Today’s face: Joe, inspired by Sktchy. This is another series of drawings for Sktchy’s Drawing Anatomy with Tiffany S DaVanzo course.This time I started by drawing a full portrait of Joe before working on a skull drawing, which I colour coded and labelled.

All the drawings were made on an iPad Pro with an Apple Pencil using the Procreate app.

Rebecca’s Skull

Today is the first day of a new Sktchy course “Drawing Anatomy with Tiffany S DaVanzo.” The course is an introduction to understanding and drawing the anatomy of the face for portrait artists and the instructor, Tiffany, is a medical illustrator. The first class was about understanding the skull and learning to draw the skull by looking at, and feeling a face. So the skull above was drawn from a photo of Rebecca, but also by feeling my own face and beginning to understand how my skull is constructed.

I have to say that I was completely gripped by this first class. I watched it through the first time just feeling my face, and then again feeling my face, -amusing the video and trying to draw – so perhaps the skull I’ve drawn is more an amalgam of mine and Rebecca’s skull than just hers! But there’s no doubt that I find this fascinating.

And if you’re interested in taking the course if you click on the title of the course in the first paragraph it’ll take you to the Sktchy shop where you can find out more.

L’s Skull

Today’s face: L’s skull, inspired by Sktchy. Something a little different today! I picked up this wooden Halloween cut-out at Hobbycraft and found the perfect muse on Sktchy to inspire my decoration – a skull carved with symbols and stars.
