Por: Skillshare . en: , ,


Do you want to improve your face drawing skills, or just want to impress your parents and friends? Then you have come to the right place. This class discusses how to draw any face, but not in the method that leaves you with the very specific skill of drawing Beyonce with a 6B graphite pencil. We are talking ANY FACE! (That includes Beyonce if you like.) The class includes: breaking the face down into basic shapes, arranging the shapes to make faces from you imagination, learning basic facial anatomy, refining the shapes to look more specific to the person you are drawing, and finally being able to draw whatever face you want in whatever style you prefer.

-Students will create a final portrait of a person of their choice, whether it is themselves, their best friend, their parent, or their favorite movie/tv character.

-This class is geared towards people who want to draw portraits/faces. Portraits can be utilized in illustrations, posters, fine art, animations, gifts for family and friends, or just for fun!
