(ANALYTICAL HEAD)
JOHN ASARIO- “Planes of the head” was developed in the 70’s. Now used as a tool for learning how to draw the face and head in planar definition. This is applicable to male, female and all races. Though structural the planes are not straight but instead made up of French curves and ovals. On these shapes are concave and convex elements none of which are flat. The planes are next to and relate to each other.

Contour Drawings
Contour is the French word for “outline.” Focus on the outermost edges of a form, as well as dramatic changes of planes within the form. Draw without shading or rendering. Use various weights of line to show distance, differences in detail etc. You can also outline a shadow or reflection. Remember, if you can’t touch the outer edges they cannot be included. For instance, don’t include a pattern on an object unless it can be felt not just seen.
