Do you want to learn how to paint beautiful portraits? A refresher for anatomical drawing? Maybe you want to understand how light and color work to improve your drawing and painting skills.
This 'Digital Head and Portrait Painting' course will teach you how to create believable and appealing portrait drawings and paintings digitally, both in grayscale and color. Whether you use Photoshop, ProCreate, Krita, or whatever other digital painting software, the content of this course will apply just the same! The principles I teach even apply outside of the realm of portraits.
I’ll guide you through the process of understanding face and head anatomy so you can confidently draw from both reference and you imagination, and I’ll show you some valuable resources to further expand your anatomical and artistic knowledge. I’ll teach you the essentials of painting, light, and color, as well as explaining the way that common elements of portrait paintings should be implemented for the best results. I’ll even go into full detail as I do two large painting demos for you, detailing my entire thought process and techniques so you can follow along every step of the way.
The human head is an essential part of drawing and painting people, and understanding it is indispensable when designing appealing and believable characters, drawing from observation, and making impressive portfolio pieces. By the end of the course, you can go from knowing little about anatomy and drawing, to understanding and painting beautiful portraits!
The course is set up to take you through progressive steps that build on each other. As you learn each principle, it will help you understand the next. With 6.5 hours worth of lectures, there’s plenty to learn, and I look forward to sharing it all with you!
You'll also get exclusive resources and personal help!
You’ll have access to my own personal brushes for digital painting in ProCreate, the program that I use most frequently, as well as links to extra resources and reference for anatomy, drawing, design, and painting. In addition, you’ll be able to join a Facebook group exclusively for artists to post your work and get feedback from me and your classmates. You’ll also have priority for live feedback and paintovers during my livestreaming sessions on Twitch.
Plus, this course comes with a 100% money-back guarantee if you’re not completely satisfied.
I’m ready to start helping you take your artistic abilities to the next level!
