figure 1: head drawings by Andrew Loomis, 1956
figure 2: women’s head designs can be generated by the same methods, they don’t have to all look very nearly the same
Some food for thought for drawing women and avoiding drawing a single female face. Too often artists seem to be afraid to give women big noses or lines or other distinguishing features, and we end up with the same face on all the characters. I’ve been browsing a lot of genderswap art lately and I’ve noticed that when male characters with large noses, thin faces, wrinkles, or other features get genderswapped, they end up with small noses, round faces, and no wrinkles, and they no longer look distinct. So. just some references and a reminder that women’s faces have all sorts of different features, and you don’t need to just have small cute features with no wrinkles to have a character look female.
I was having talks about this today>I wanna work on this in my stuff.
