Content & Overview
Whether you are a beginner or an advanced artist, in this course you will learn everything you need to know about portraiture.
In an introduction, you will learn what the head is made of and how to break down the complex anatomical structures into simple shapes. In individual lessons about facial features and emotions, you will acquire more detailed knowledge in order to be able to draw realistic portraits. Afterwards, I will show you in numerous different examples how to apply the acquired knowledge, construct heads and draw individual portraits of every person from this world – no matter which age, ethnicity, gender or emotion.
After completing the course and all the exercises you will be able to draw your own portraits completely from imagination, in different styles and in every perspective.
You will also have acquired basic drawing techniques to draw other things and to modify your portraits. Whether cartoon-, alien-, or other portraits: you will be able to put everything on digital paper. Although the course is designed for digital work, many of the techniques can be transferred to traditional drawing outside of Photoshop or to other digital drawing programs.
I will provide you with numerous exercise sheets, additional materials, editing tricks in Photoshop and insider tips so that you can improve quickly and never again get into an artist block with portrait drawing.
If you finish the course completely and have worked on it really carefully, you will certainly become a very good (portrait) artist.
