Lesson One: Construction of the Head - Moustache Man

Here's the first character to draw "in every position using the above egg as a guide". This to me seemed to be the most important part of this lesson. You are given a character and you have to envision it in 3-D. You need to know what the back of his head looks like, how his hat sits on his head, how far out his nose sticks, where his moustache separates from his face - it's hard! I had the most difficult time envisioning what the hat would look like from different angles. I even took a little hat and put it on one of my sons' toys to try to picture it.
