How to Draw a Face from any Angle | Part 2 – The 3/4 View

Loomis method explained in FULL DETAIL!! Learn how to draw faces/heads in the 3/4 view using the Loomis method. In this tutorial, I break the process down step by step so you can learn how to not only draw a face in the 3/4 view, but also how to draw faces from any angle that you can imagine!

It took me a long time to grasp/learn the Loomis method myself and so I wanted to create an easy tutorial that anyone could learn from. If you have a copy of Andrew Loomis’ book, you’ll notice that I added some of my own techniques into the two-part video series so you can learn how to draw faces even more easily, even if you’re a complete beginner.

The 3/4 head is a challenging one, but with this method, you’ll be able to draw it in no time!

You can check out Andrew Loomis’s AWESOME book in the link down below!
