Facial Planes

I made this self portrait with the goal to define facial planes. Facial planes are the areas that the skin changes direction based on the underlying bone structure. It is an interesting way to compose a picture because you are not necessarily depicting what is there; you are constructing an image based on shapes and forms.

This was a valuable illustration because it became the basis for my digital portraits. To see examples of my digital portraits please visit the following link:
