Step Description
1 The first step is to establish a 13 ½” (34.3cm) long plum line on the center of your 11” (27.9cm) x 17” (43.2cm) paper using your graphite lead pencil. Place a mark at ½” (1.3cm) away from the top of the paper, then measure down 13 ½” (34.3cm) with your clear plastic ruler and place another mark. We will be using a stylized 10 equal head proportion rule for this lesson.
2 Map the position of the head in the first head section. Draw the head as an elongated egg shape, squaring off at the bottom, suggesting the chin and jawline.
3 Draw the plum line down the center of the head to the crotch, with a slight right curve. The crotch is positioned midway between the top and bottom plum line marks.
