Amy Schumer - Round or Square is Usually the Answer
Hey Tom LaBaff here this week with one quick tip for you. When drawing people, choose between round or square. People usually fall into one of these two buckets.
They either have angular features or they have round features. For some reason I struggled with this in my attempt at Amy Schumer. She's definitely in the round category. Once I realized this, and embraced that she's round and cute, I found her cuteness is all about these full round features in her face. Finally it came together.
In the painting, I was making the same mistake of looking for angular features, but she didn't have any. So the take away is this: don't ignore the obvious, ask yourself is this person a ball or a cube? That's all I got this week, thanks for watching.
