  • An Oldie But a Goodie: But Is It Art?

    An Oldie But a Goodie: But Is It Art?

    Art and controversy seem to go hand-in-hand. What’s surprising to me is that  at least some of the controversies around art seem to have been around a long, long, loooooong time. They never get resolved, but neither do they ever get dropped. In fact, they are regularly dredged up every once in a while and presented as brand new. Today I have a classic Art Controversy, which although not directly about drawing, could be. It’s a variation on the ever-popular […]

  • The Best 3D Street Art of 2012

    The Best 3D Street Art of 2012

    It’s been a while since I’ve posted any trompe l’oeil street art, but today I have a terrific video of the best 3D street art of the year to make up for it. There is a little problem with this video: I don’t know who decided that these works are the best.  Hmmm . . . Oh well, they’re so good that I’m willing to overlook that. I hope you enjoyed the video.  My favorite drawing — I think — […]

  • Facial Proportions – Part 5 – Three Quarter View

    Facial Proportions – Part 5 – Three Quarter View

    Today is day 5, the last day, of the proprotions of the human face tutorial. I think this may be the most interesting of video of the series because today the instructor discusses the 3/4 view of the head. Most of us thing full face or profile, but 3/4 is a lot more complex and interesting to me.   So, that wraps it up for the mini course in facial proportions. I really do hope you enjoyed yourself and got […]

  • Facial Proportions – Part 4 – The Female Head

    Facial Proportions – Part 4 – The Female Head

    Today in part 4 of the facial proportions tutorial, the instructor goes into more depth as he shows the rules of proportion as they apply to the female head.     By way of ending today’s lesson, I’ll remind you what Merrill said about his rules: Don’t worry about all the proportion rules or you’ll never draw.” Note: As tomorrow is Christmas, I won’t be posting, but please come back on Wednesday for the last part of the tutorial. The […]

  • When You Understand Proportions . . .

    When you understand proportions, you can reveal the depths of  a person’s character in a drawing as well as (if not better than) one could in words. This drawing by Leonard da Vinci proves the point.

  • Facial Proportions – Part 3 – Profiles

    Facial Proportions – Part 3 – Profiles

    Today is Part 3 of the video tutorial of the proportions of the human face. Today, Merill discusses and demonstrates the proportions of the face in profile. NOTE: For some bizarre reason there seems to be an American Express ad in the middle of this video.  Don’t worry: It only lasts a second or two.     It’s really revealing when you find Merrill’s formula demonstrated on several heads together, isn’t it?   I haven’t seen that done before. I hope […]

    Facial Proportions – Part 2 – The Formula Applied Step-by-Step

    You’re back! Today is Part 2 of the tutorial on the proportions of the human head.  In this video, Instructor Merrill demonstrates his proportional formula for the human face and shows how it’s possible to draw a face from memory.     Tomorrow’s lesson will cover the proportions of the human head in profile. Most people seem to think that drawing profiles is easier than full faces. We’ll see.
