Head turns/tilts example by tombancroft Head turns/tilts example by tombancroft
This is a sketch example for Tom Bancroft's upcoming "Drawing Animated Women" lesson that we shot last night. This was illustrating how tilts can help push your expression/mood. No, its not supposed to be a character from Frozen. The lesson will go up in a week or two, but check out what we have online already!

I wanna do animation someday but I have no art class background, I'm self taught. 

Beautiful sketches!

Hi Tom, I was in Florida Disney World in November. Great to see a younger you in an interactive video on a behind-the-scenes animation session. You were drawing Mushu and conversing with the real-flesh actor on stage hahaa.

HA, yeah, thanks for noticing me.  I've been talking to Mushu there for years and I never get tired.  I do miss that younger me though.  In Disneyland Paris, I speak French fluently apparently.

Isn't this head tilt technically a cheat? As in, it's just a 3/4 angle drawn head thats been tilted.  Not that there's anything wrong with that, but it would be nice for a little variety in the drawings.

I'm not sure what mean by cheat, but yes, its supposed to be the same character head, just tilted and turned at an angle.  That point was to show it from a slightly different view to show that the dimension and mood gained can often times improve the same expression.

Ah, OK, I gotcha.  And I meant "cheat" as in, you already know very well how to draw a 3/4 angle head, so you use it here instead of a slight upshot of the head.  Not as in a bad way, just in an "efficiency" sort of way.

I'm excited about this lesson, and about Taught By A Pro in general! I'm looking forward to finding a groove in my schedule again in the coming weeks and giving a lesson or two a try soon. : )

And yeah, love these faces. I love that last one and how the tilt of the head does a lot to flesh out the look on her face. Awesome!
