  1. So I made a video response for you, and it SAYS it worked, but then I don’t see it showing up. Then I tried to post a link to it in the comments and it gives an error message. YouTube doesn’t like me. 🙁

  2. Thanks! I got the video reply. Still a little new to video replies but in mine it has the option to create a video response. Maybe try creating another post and see if the option comes up for you too. Says create a video response or Post. Think you have to have the video posted to youtube already though so you can select it. In any case I got the reply and will be releasing my reply soon. So stay posted.

  3. GeeKayEs your video critique is up and waiting. The video response is a little tricky for some reason. I figured it out but i think i accidentally removed yours! LOL either way it’s up.

  4. The faces I have tried drawing are in my deviantart gallery. Go to deviantart and search musicallyinsane09 and go to my gallery to see them. They’re labeled Kylie and Jojo

  5. Joe dirt teaches drawing. Actually pretty informative but that’s what I’m thinking as I’m watching this video.

  6. @Musicallyinsane09 Sorry for the wait your critique is on its way! Should be up in a little bit. Thank you for your submission!

    • I really love your site and am going to brmaokok it so I can come back to visit often.Following you from MBC. Would love if you would return the favor and follow back.Ruthie

  7. Awesome. I am glad it helped Scenarika. If there is anything else that you are needing help with drawing i’d be happy to help.

  8. This is a really difficult way of explaining the proportions in a face…It also took a really long time, it could have been explained easily in a 1/4 of the time.

  9. I think your placement of the ears is incorrect. It usually the top of the eye-brow to the bottom of the nose. Just an FYI. Try this instead and you’ll be correct most of the time.

  10. Why are so many artists using a sphere for the head? It’s much easier to use a box form for it. Spheres are just a pain to draw in perspective.

  11. Sormias, a box is a really great way to go too. Since everything can be drawn in one it can help simplify and give your image some structure beforehand. Once you study perspective a little more and get familiar with the box however you can go straight to the sphere or circle shape. Both are great. You can apply the guidelines used in the video to a box as well. Happy drawing!

  12. Thanks for the all great feedback. These are some of the first videos I’v put up. I am currently working on making some more that will really jump straight in and be a lot more hands on.
