Template for Wings 3D
A template image is the color scheme which observed the continuity on the surface of a head. This color scheme is effective for discernment from a XYZ axis. The division of the color is not muscle, but it puts emphasis on the flow (edge ring) of the polygon. When a beginner recognizes a form, this thinks that it is easy.
The proportion of head is based on Andrew Loomis's ruler.
Some on-line documents and archives of Loomis's books.
