“The face is a central sense organ complex, for those animals that have one, normally on the ventral surface of the head, and can, depending on the definition in the human case, include the hair, forehead, eyebrow, eyelashes, eyes, nose, ears, cheeks, mouth, lips,philtrum, temple, teeth, skin, and chin. The face has uses of expression, appearance, and identity amongst others. It also has different senses like olfaction, taste, hearing, and vision.”
The first kind of thing I thought about when I thought of ‘face’s was what the face represents.
A face can represent so many different things, for example, an emotion your portraying (happiness, sadness, anger, fear) and I was just thinking about how important the face is to us as human beings especially for communication.
I really enjoy illustration and I wanted to use my own style to represent ‘faces’, and the idea behind the busy-ness of my pictures is basically just portraying the things that can go on in someones mind. When you look at a face you immediately look at someones eyes because it is the focal point of the face and the feature we look at for communication, and you can also guess someones emotions from their eyes and I wanted to portray thoughts and the mind in the busy illustrations I created.
