Total Runtime: 7 Hours 30 Minutes

What You’ll Learn

Loomis Method: Learn how to use the Loomis Method for constructing the 3d forms of the head. This allows you to draw the head in any angle from your imagination or from life.

Eyes: Learn the anatomy and how to draw realistic eyes step by step. Being able to draw realistic eyes brings your portraits to life.

Nose: Learn to draw the nose by deconstructing it into major and minor planes. This will help you to shade the forms and make the nose pop from the page.

Lips: Give your portraits luscious lips by starting with 5 squishy little pillows and then rendering the 3-dimensional forms using tone.

Ears: Learn how to manage the complexity of the ear with the “Y?” method. You’ll also learn “shadow mapping” to design the light and dark patterns of the shadows.

Hair: Most people approach hair the wrong way. In this course, you’ll learn how to give hair volume in your drawings. No more spaghetti hair!


Features

Step by Step Instruction: Receive step by step instruction on drawing each facial feature. Learn each one at your own pace and then put them all together at the end to complete a portrait.
