Welcome to Lesson 8 of “Drawing Secrets Revealed” where you’ll learn all about drawing the human face! When drawing a broader figure drawing, you don’t need to think so much about the details of the human face, but what about when you’re drawing a portrait? Then it’s ALL about the face! This lesson is modeled after the previous lesson on drawing the form by giving you some helpful guidelines to recognize and follow in your portraits, and then giving you several chances to put those into practice with several step-by-step demonstrations. Faces are my passion – I could spend hours drawing nothing but faces and be happy as a clam. But while it’s easy to think it’s too hard for the average artist to draw faces well, that’s just not true. Anyone can learn to draw even complex subjects by using the concepts and techniques I teach in my program. So get ready to master another challenge!
