Scary heads and a cat who became a gargoyle


Continuing this week’s collection of unusual and spooky-ish drawings, here are some heads from an evening class I took last year.

The art room was full of marble heads, statues and the odd skeleton. I thought it best to start from the beginning (or the end I guess) so first up was a skull:

Next up was the “Planes of the Head” cast, developed to show where shadows fall on the face.  The two on the left are “Planes of the Head”. The strung out looking guy on the right is an example of the muscles in the face.

Lastly, here is a cat from a few weeks ago. I don’t know what happened. I’ve drawn a cat okay before. Somehow, I misjudged the length of its nose or I just discovered this cat’s true nature, because unfortunately it ended up looking a bit like a gargoyle.

Happy Halloween!
