coming back to the skull

image reproduced from digital artform

In Life Drawing I, we had a brief introduction to the skull and facial features. In Life Drawing II, we will begin the course with in-depth study of the skull via gesture and long drawings of the skull--first in standard position, then in various positions from several points of view. One of the objectives I have for you with the skulls is to be able to draw it from memory from any position.

Here are a few links that address this drawing problem:
