Awesome, thanks! I should get around to marking more later in the week :) Did you sign up for P101 after the first lesson? I think I remember this but let me know if I'm wrong. If you joined late I'll take that into account for the completion points.

Do you want the assignment in one larger file or 3 smaller ones?

Okay. I did both, here's the one with all three. Links to the separate ones are there if they're easier to load. [link]
Oh, and spoiler, everyone's bald right now. XD

I have a question as far as facial anatomy. One of the portraits I'm doing is a side-view, and I was wondering if the 7-eyes-tall, 5-eyes-wide rule changes at all. I can't help but think the eye would be really large if I followed that rule.

Thank you!

Here's a helpful tutorial I found about the eye width thing: [link]

The skull is fatter out the back of the head, so it might be more like 6-7 eyes wide as well as tall at the widest point for a side view. That'd be eye-width from a straight-ahead view, too. Likewise for the height, chin to crown of the head, should still be 6-7 eye widths. So it'd take some eyeballing, but you might still be able to work with it. Works best for a front view, though. Should have specified, sorry!
I'm not aware of a similar trick for different views (beyond simple practice), but if you played around a bit I'm sure you'll find a method that works for you :) I'll have a section of the next tutorial on head angles along with expressions. I'd have touched on it in this one, but I didn't want to drag on for too long, haha.

Ah, I see. I'll try to not overachieve too much and won't do one of the portraits as a 3/4 view. :P

Holy crap! I'm pretty sure I can get this done by the due date, but I'm just gonna let you know in advance that I'm very new to portraits. Time to get crackin'. :9

Don't worry! They don't have to be finished pieces, something quick and rough will do just fine :) In fact it shows a bit more of your process, which'll mean better feedback for improvement.

Oh, okay. Sounds good. Now I can concentrate on lighting instead of cleaning up perfectly.
