link to mask and golden ratio
currently trying to work out how to draw the golden mask. Ive read this creates a face which is pleasing to the eye.
There are two points numbered as 1 and 2 below. anser is my reply to what part confusing me
Q1..Ideal height and width of a face. If the distance between the two cheeks are 1, then the ideal height is 1.618
answer( is that a measurement of 1cm as i cant see anthing bing a centimetre.
Q2. This mask of the human face is based on the Golden Ratio. The proportions of the length of the nose, the position of the eyes and the length of the chin, all conform to some aspect of the Golden Ratio.
answer what are the ratios. As i would like to create this mask for a portrait face drawing
If you are planning to make a portrait drawing, isn't it more important to make the drawing look like the subject rather than an interpretation of the golden ratio?
You would be much better off getting a good book on drawing heads.
Try "Drawing the Human Head" by Burne Hogarth or "Drawing the Heads and Hands" by Andrew Loomis.
no not in this instance as its for a character design and its the mask is used in 3d modeling for some characters which usualy are the heroes which fit within this steroe type
i have a degree in creative digital media 2 years professional experience as animator, illustrator at webanywhere
I would like to know how to create this mask as it will be useful as i will make alterations to suit later.
Dividing a line segment into two parts such that the ratio of these parts equals
the ratio of the larger part and the line segment
gives us the golden ratio (Phi).
the qout above i donot fully understand
this lady who draws model heads talks about how leanardo davinci usesd the golden section to create heads . 1 divisible into 3 . and i think andrew loomis does use this technique. of splitting the head into 3 sections. then they use a triangle at the base
which are clos e to making the mask aas based on this prinicple i think
