Lesson 4 & 5 by Hammerson

Two lessons for the price of one :)
Left: construction, Center: cleaned-up pencil version, Right: comparison

These are my best attempts so far, but I don't consider them as the last word on both lessons. Again, I made a mistake with the upper lip, similar to the one I've done on the lesson 3.

Lesson 5 was particularly hard to do, and it's important to realize in both examples that the egghead character doesn't have the features simply painted over his face. These are the real "fleshy" features, and they must stick out to give a solid 3D feeling to the viewer from every possible angle.

These look good. You have good placement on the eyebrows, I always have a tough time with that. The eyes on the lesson 5 cleanup seem sort of parallel, but it is very minor nitpicking.

Excellent construction, really makes me think!

When you clean up from your constructed drawing, do what kinda paper do you use, like tracing/animation paper, or just something thin enough to see what your cleaning up or what?

You've done a great job with these two. Especially with your line variation.

Great job!

I just see minor, and I mean minor, mistakes with the angle on lesson 4.
Thanks for the insights. If you get some time, ink the heads.
