Love all your videos. You have such a good technique!
That’s a masterful drawing of a skull but I noticed there are minor proportional differences in the overall shape, the eye sockets and the teeth. I may be accused of being overly picky here but minor proportional variations like these often result in a missed likeness when doing portraiture. Judging accurate proportions seems to be the biggest obstacle anyone faces when doing representational drawing so, Stan, can you do a series on nailing accurate proportions?
Yup, there are some proportional errors here. The key to getting proportions right, I think, is spending a lot of time measuring and correcting. In this drawing I made almost no correction and moved on with my initial layin. Total time for this drawing was 50 minutes. Wasn’t too concerned of getting a ‘likeness’ of a skull. If it were a doing a commissioned portrait, I would definitely be more careful.
Thanks for the observation and critique
Was he pleased with his portrait?
He thought it was ‘killer’ and ‘dead on’
What great Halloween fun! I always enjoy your videos. Thanks! Jean
Proko, you could make a dead man draw.
Throughout the whole video I was amazed.. I kept thinking “What could he do to make this drawing more fantastic, epic, amazing?!” (lack of better words) I learned a bit of anatomy through on watching, which I will be practicing soon. I been holding off drawing for a while but this has inspired me to continue my journey to become a better artist. thank you.:)

In this demonstration, Marshall Vandruff explains the joints of the foot and how to draw them as simple forms in perspective.
There are 6 types of synovial joints. They have varying shapes, but the important thing about them is the movement they allow. Let’s go through each joint.
Anatomy Tracings is one of the assignments we’ll be doing throughout the course. Here’s an example of how to do one.
Introducing “Anatomy of the Human Body for Artists”.. In this video I’m gonna give you an overview of the course. Why we study anatomy, what you’ll learn from this course, and what’s in the premium version of the course.
