headshots by ErrantCrow headshots by ErrantCrow
91 heads
53 unique angles

This started as a reference sheet, but it soon took on a life of its own. I'll be doing more of these if I can ever get someone I know to do 53-91 poses.

UPDATE! 12/30/12:
Another in the same series. I am a workaholic so I'm not as prolific as I like, but there are some cool projects I have in the works that I hope to share in 2013. Thanks again for the amount of interest in this piece. Over 10K views, 1K fav's, and 100! (commenters, you're 1 in 100 technically, but you're all 1 in 1,000,000 to me!) Happy New Year!

Edit 8/28/11: Can I just say, um, whoa and thanks? It looks like someone suddenly decided to put up a huge, honking Look At THIS sign on the internet pointing to this deviation. In fact, yep, there is, and the sign belongs to =FOERVRAENGD. Thanks. The comments alone made this week for me. ~WhiteShinigami has won a llama for the line: "sweet friggin cheezus O .O"

Thanks also to #ArtistsHospital, #Drawing-Tutorials, and #Animal-Anatomy for requesting to feature this in their groups. Usually I'm the one the other end of the rope on that one, trying not to hang myself or my ego.

Using as a Ref: I'm completely cool with people using this as a reference for drawing those difficult head angles. I'm particularly fond of the angle on the bottom row, second from the right. Send me links of what you do; I'd love to see them. Exercise restraint.

Thanks again,

attempting to redraw this for anatomy learning purposes... harder then it looks! I'm about 18 in and keeping the head size, face and bone structure consistent is so difficult! kudos to you. This is a great resource, but also very well composed as a piece!

If I were an art prof I would be that sadistic and give this assignment, so kudos for volunteering! Note: find extra refs - shadows help. Look at photos or use a statuette you turn around. There's a reason Disney has those cool gray character models.
OMG! Can you make a female one for this please?!

Oh Thank you of this! It'll be so useful!

oh my gosh this SO useful- is there a female version?
ErrantCrow Nov 23, 2013  Professional Writer
I have one in progress...but it's a lot of angles!  I can't believe I did this first one in two days.  How did I do that...and can I bottle it? 

I'll be sure to link any new images in the same series in the comments on this page.  Still hard to believe people are STILL looking at this.  Glad it's been so useful to a lot of people.
