Its nice, but a small critique! I believe you make the necks look too small, as the skin stretches closer from the jaw....i hope im making sense ;; But this is very useful! I always have trouble with the lips and nose in profile.
Well yes, yes you are right^^" I have to admit that I concentrated on the skull and the facial features... (Hahah, "the point of departure is always myself", so maybe the cause of why did I draw too small neck is I have an incredibly thin neck too×D) Thanks for your notice, I'll keep it in mind: )
Yes! This is how I red-line people's work. I often tell them to keep the skull in mind! As it's helpful. Glad I'm not out of line! :'D Knowing the sternoclaidomastoid also helps in guiding jaw and ear placement (as well as helps to make sure the back of the head isn't too flat!). Plus if you then know right where to place the ear, it makes the eyes easier to place. ♥
My only nit pick is that it is possible to have a flat brow lead down to straight nose. You notice it in certain ethnic groups (Greek being the more famous for this). So if a person is of such genetics, and sees this often, they will probably draw noses and brows that way, since it's what they naturally see. Though there may be wrong ways to go about, it's not entirely wrong in itself. It has a basis. . u.;;
