Faces and facial expressions are something I’ve always had trouble trying to understand to draw. I pretty much always end up drawing way too much detail making the people look like old folks or the opposite gender than intended. I’m trying to learn how to convey just the right amount of information and leave out extraneous details. I suppose this is another part that will become easier as I progress. I start out with a simplified version of the Loomis Method for drawing heads at the correct angle, then I am trying to apply minimal detail to convey the emotions.
