What you will learn

1Loomis Method
Learn how to use the Loomis Method for constructing the 3d forms of the head. This allows you to draw the head in any angle from your imagination or from life.
2Eyes
Learn the anatomy and how to draw realistic eyes step by step. Being able to draw realistic eyes brings your portraits to life.
3Nose
Learn to draw the nose by deconstructing it into major and minor planes. This will help you to shade the forms and make the nose pop from the page.
4Lips
Give your portraits luscious lips by starting with 5 squishy little pillows and then rendering the 3-dimensional forms using tone.
5Ears
Learn how to manage the complexity of the ear with the “Y?” method. You’ll also learn “shadow mapping” to design the light and dark patterns of the shadows.
6Hair
Most people approach hair the wrong way. In this course, you’ll learn how to give hair volume in your drawings. No more spaghetti hair!
