Andrew Loomis AR Head Guide is an app powered by Unity Vuforia AR to help artists draw better heads. Based on the Andrew Loomis book, the ball and sphere head, grid, and planar head is modelled and placed into the app. Simply rotate the head to the desired head position and style, then augment the head and project it onto your paper to draw.

PROBLEM STATEMENT

Often times beginner artists would encounter problem when drawing the human body where the proportion could be amiss, resulting in an unappealing drawing. Learning the correct proportion will ultimately help improve drawing.

ABOUT THE APP

Good artists copy, great artists steal. The AR app focuses on the human head proportion, helping beginner artists or perhaps intermediate artists easily draw better head proportion using a 3D head proportion model that can be rotated to be viewed at different angle. The head model can be viewed as it is or projected onto the drawing paper with AR to be traced. Head proportion can also be customised, like the Sims. The head however, is only a rough block out and not a detailed head rendering, it serves as a rough guideline to each artist’s drawing style. It is also advised to first rely on the app, and then slowly deviate from it (the tracing) as you progress.

USERS

Unfortunately I was not able to provide more customizations due to time constraints. The app will rather only provide a standard male head model.
