This is a better version to use as a reference. It depicts a more feminine head.

Assignment 4: Planar Study (DUE Mon. 4/3)
***This drawing homework is due at the beginning of class on Monday. We will be going on a trip to start a new project during the rest of the class. 
TO DO:
1. Complete your constructive, mass model study of the head began in class last Monday. Practice the structure on a piece of tracing paper then transfer the best solution to your final paper surface or complete the version as a separate drawing. In other words, you complete the tracing paper planar study as the final one and have a separate portrait version. Be sure the tracing paper version is neatly attached to the portrait using tape cut with scissors and clean edges on the tracing paper. Use charcoal pencils or conté sticks in various yellow, orange, red and brown combinations. Use only a little of the white chalk at the end. (or none at all if out of your comfort zone).

Use your analytical head reference in the handouts from class, photos of the plastic head you took in class, images of the planar head with the black background above, and other pictures that are shown (under the torso anatomy series) on the Lecture page to apply the techniques. Try not to make the structure too confusing or complicated. The reference provided in the handouts, and this blog shows proper application of the forms. You can also view the numbers of sides of each of the planes on the Lecture page. ***Be sure not to make her look too masculine.
