Small Figures: Ernie

Every so often I like to practice drawing portraits through drawing plaster or plastic skulls. If you've never heard of this before it may seem odd. However, drawing a skull helps to inform an artist about the underlying structures of the human face. It is much easier to see the distinct plane changes on the forehead and cheek bones and to see the subtle movement of the jawbone on a person after you have drawn from a skull. I suggest skull drawing whenever possible.
