“A day without Christoph is a day without sunshine.”
Step 1: Choose your favorite photo.
Step 2: Draw a circle to serve as a guide for the front plane of the face. Draw a small inner circle to roughly set where the ear will fall. Drop a line from the circle to serve as baseline for where the eye, brow ridge, nose, lip, and chin will fall.
Step 3: Drop down horizontal lines where you estimate features will fall.Divide the face into the front panel and the side panel (where the ear is located). Now on the eye line, draw circles where you think the pupils will fall. Then roughly sketch in the jaw, the chin, and other features.
Step 4: Start adding details. The more the merrier. Observe as much as you can. If you see any discrepancies in proportion and details, corect them immediately. (But if you’re working in photoshop, you can make corrections later on. Especially for problems concerning proportion).
Step 5: Add shading, and create highlights. model the features. Now, set it next to the photo. See more glaring mistakes? Now you can go back in and make corrections.
admittedly, it’s not a work of art, but that’s what Waltzitis does to you, makes you a lunatic to draw these pictures. The goal is to keep striving with the condition, not against it, and maybe one day, we can make that piece of artwork that will make someone else say:
“Give me Christoph or give me death.”
