If you prefer to read, here is the transcript: Hello and welcome to a very special Halloween episode of Proko. My name is Stan Prokopenko and for this Halloween episode I decided to draw Jack Skellington. He’s very easy yet very fun to draw. So, let’s have some fun. I’ll start by warming up with [...]
Learn how to draw the lips step by step: lay-in, two value, dark accents, halftones / highlights, and details. Start with the 5 squishy little pillows of the lips and render 3-dimensional form using tone.
In this video learn to draw the nose in 5 steps: lay-in, two value, dark accents, halftones / highlights, and details. We visualize the minor and major planes of the nose and render 3-dimensional form using tone.
Today I have a critique for the Shading lesson and generally summing up all the figure lessons. Amit Shirole submitted two drawings. He did such a great job with this exercise, I think he’s a good example for everyone else and maybe an inspiration to do the same thing.
