Kreated by Krause: Drawing the Planes of the HeadThe Original Planes of the Head mannequin is designed as a tool for learning in an effective and orderly progression how to draw and paint the human head. The model is applicable to both sexes and all races, with variations arising only in proportion. The right side shows a more complex structure characteristic of a thinner and or older face. This mannequin head has been conceived in the hope of benefiting all artists from the beginning student to the professional. It is designed for both independent and classroom use. Through academic exercise Planes of the Head offers a realistic approach for the understanding of light and planes in the modeling of the human head.

This post is picking up a thread that I dropped in April , the Loomis head drawings. One of my original ideas when I came back to painting was that I wanted to get back to portrait painting. I find portraits fascinating,and am often to be found skulking around the National Portrait Gallery. When I was a street artist in my twenties, every now and again people used to ask me to copy poor quality snaps of their nearest and dearest, which I used to do quite happily for them. Loomis was an illustrator who wrote some very useful art instruction books, most of which are out of copyright and can be downloaded here.
I cannot locate one of these cast. Shop with confidence. The Original Planes of the Head mannequin is designed as a tool for learning in an effective and orderly progression how to draw and paint the human head. Having these three- dimensional objects available to touch, light and closely examine will make learning to draw infinitely easier. Welcome to the world of radio controlled model airplanes.

Well I have found myself in a desperate spot, so I am going to attempt to take matters into my own hands. I cannot locate one of these cast. With the help of the place that cuts my hair and some very high tech clay, I would like to recreate a "cast" like head loosely based on the above. I am just concerned that I don't fully understand why the two sides of the head differ, before looking closely I thought it was muscular, but now I don't know if it is to show how different areas would turn for different types of light. Does anyone know the history of this sculpture and what the sides mean?

I actually hatch in planes when drawing. I find that finding the plane and then reflecting that in the way I draw actually helps add solidity to a two dimensional drawing. I get quite a few comments that it looks like I've "sculpted" my heads out of the paper! Though this is more intense. Actually I noticed when I was experimenting with a 3D program, that you can do a similar thing there, but in 3D. In many 3D programs, there's a 'sculpt' mode that allows you intuitively model your 3D shape like clay.
