I'm continuing to work through Loomis's Fun With A Pencil. Up to page 30 now, although I am skimming it a bit - not replicating or practising every single little example. As I mentioned in the previous post I'd like to master the proper Loomis method but having failed spectacularly in the past I thought Fun With A Pencil might prove a nice primer.
For each quick cartoon like character I've been doing an equally quick copy of a photograph using the technique shown. So we have a "surprised expression" to start with.
Loomis then moved on to using two circles, rather than the one that's been the basis for all the drawings so far. So we have a couple of quick examples of that.
I then did a longer, 30 minute, go at the two circles method.
It seems to me that I'm already starting to see how the main Loomis method will work to improve on this very simple methodology. But I shall persevere nice and slowly.
