Here is step two. I want to just redraw this for a second to make the concept simple. And Bug's head is tilted towards the dog, that is the neck somewhere down here and drawn there and that, okay that is the basic construction of bugs in its simplest form. But now we are going to break it into its next levels of sizes. This is a little bit hard to put into words. He is made up of three basic forms here one, two and three in this drawing then each of these forms is again broken up into separate pieces and his head is made up of two pieces, the cranium and the muzzle area the jaw. Think of the dogs, cranium, jaw, nose, so notice that his nozzle is smaller than his cranium in this position partly because it is smaller and partly because his head is tilted down a little bit.
So part two of his head, I will bring, a set of line to the head and then on top of that I am going to place his muzzle. There's the muzzle on one side, and there is the muzzle on the other side. So that is step two. it is the second level of forms. The first level was, one, two, three, head, neck, body. Then the head is broken up into, one two, skull, nozzle, got that? So if we go back to step one, there is my construction and the basic forms of the picture, here is step two, broken down a little bit and I added the nose, I liked his nose here.
Now notice that I am not trying, this is important, I am not trying to draw one thing at a time and hoping that I end up with a good looking picture. This is how most people when they teach themselves how to draw, they try to do it a little bit at a time, detail-by-detail. That is a much harder way, again a good picture. Now I am sort of a little bit able to do this because I understand Construction. When I look at this, I understand how it is built, how it works, so I can get away with the little bit of this but it is still not going to be as a good as picture as if I constructed. So this is a bad way to draw, detail by detail. It won't add up, you won't draw like that. That is step two.
