"Gary is a magnificent artist and instructor. What a remarkable class! I love to draw, but now I can certainly take my beginner skills to higher professional heights. It takes years to master the skills Gary has, but he made the class understandable and the work of drawing achievable.”
In this extensive portrait drawing program, "DRAWING FACIAL FEATURES" Faigin teaches the principles of depicting the features of the face, including the technical and structural elements behind a perfectly-drawn portrait.
Faigin begins with an explanation of the fundamental forms of the skull and shows how to use basic ratios to accurately depict distinct facial patterns. He illustrates how to sketch a compositional study of the underlying structure of the face, and then apply gradual tonal changes to define the ridges and planes of the portrait rendering. Faigin demonstrates the how to create emotionally animated eyes and an authentic smile, and the pictorial elements required to transform a portrait from flat to fully dimensional. ENROLL HERE.
