The Vase/Faces Drawing

A side benefit of learning to draw is getting to know your own brain a bit better - for example, how, for you, these two modes compete and cooperate.

Here is a quick exercise designed to illustrate the mental conflict that can occur between L-mode and R-mode.

This is a famous optical illusion drawing, called "Vase/Faces" because it can be seen as either two facing profiles or as a symmetrical vase in the center.

Your job, of course, is to complete the second profile, which will inadvertently complete the symmetrical vase in the center.

Pt. II MONSTER VASE/FACE

In the 2nd part, you will flip your paper over to the back and create a monster profile. You will then use your measuring techniques and create a profile of a monster creature complete with horns, a snarling nose, teeth, and some chin hair. 


You will then complete the 2nd profile using the same techniques that you used on the first image.
