How to Draw Faces - Learn to draw Proportional, Lifelike Portraits from Scratch

In this class, you will learn to draw a portrait from scratch. I will guide you from sketching to finishing touches in this highly detailed tutorial. I will share a lot of tips and tricks with you that will become part of your drawing practice so that you can apply them to your future portraits. You will need a few graphite pencils, something for blending (a blending stump or Q-tips), an eraser and a high-quality paper.

In addition to this tutorial, I will provide additional, bonus videos for you, such as testing, reviewing and comparing the blenders. Furthermore, I will provide you behind the scenes access, showing you how I record and edit my drawing videos. I will also explain how you can scan and edit your drawings to show them on the internet.

In this tutorial, you will learn:

How to sketch from complete scratch without using any reference photos

How to draw lifelike eyes and beautiful eyebrows

How to shade the nose to make it pop

How to draw plump lips and teeth

How to patiently shade the skin to make it smooth and achieve the best results

And how to draw realistic hair

I am excited to have you in my class.
