Facial Expressions

Facial Expressions

I think this is a fantastic learning tool for drawing as well as sculpting. It shows you the effect of different facial expressions using an animated face; the changes that take place in the muscle and face shape due to a change of expression. A range of expressions has been provided. I hope this resource stays online.

Update - "Artnatomy autorun improved tool (with some corrected mistakes and bugs I've detected) will be available this summer (I'm overloaded by work, right now) at a price (30 €, 35$ USD) I believe reasonable and will allow me to continue financing this kind of works (I'm working in new project) and the server big traffic. Same improved version is going to stay online free anyway." Victoria Contrera Flores.

Update : Oct 30, 2006 : I got an email today from Victoria Flores announcing the availability of the Desktop (offline) version of this application for 30 €. I've put below an excerpt.

communicated and delivered to you totally free." Victoria Flores

Learning to draw

A couple of days back there was comment asking for help on starting to draw and paint. I'd asked him to join the WetCanvas! Classroom forum and to look up some additional sources from this site.
This morning I got a newsletter from drawspace . I find that it is growing to be a wonderful online resource for drawing lessons. These are divided into 3 levels - beginners, intermediate and advanced. drawspace also has a forum which is slowly growing and the activities are focussed on drawing with pencil, charcoal, color pencils and pen & ink. All the lessons have been written by one person and you have a choice of viewing it for free online or downloading the pdf version for a small fee. Brenda Hoddinott whose lessons populate this website is amongst other things a self taught artist. She is currently working on a new website along similar lines for Fine Art.

Today, Mayank has got an update with details of this site as an alternative and few other suggestions one of which I shall put …
