Are you tired of drawing generic heads that lack variety? Well that's all about to change. Because in this class you'll learn how to draw unique, memorable looking heads that stand out from the crowd - and leave a lasting impression.
Drawing heads and faces with the correct proportions, shape and facial feature placement is one of the first challenges most artists face when learning how to draw characters. With time and consistent practice, most of us master this skill.
But there comes a point where we realize our head drawings are looking rather generic and boring - even though they're technically correct. Our heads wind out looking like cookie-cutter clone domes that lack variety and pizazz.
What happens if we want to set our characters apart from one another? How do we make them look different?
Short answer - we've got to mix it up. But, we've got to mix it up in the right way, taking everything we understand about head proportions, shape and facial feature placement - and modifying them to create head and face variations for our characters that still have a solid structure and look accurate in their own right.
That's what this class is all about. I'll show you the step by step process for creating three unique looking heads. Each demonstration is recorded and narrated real-time, giving you the ability to follow along at a steady pace, and put everything you're learning into practice.
This class teaches you how to:
- Establish the foundational structure and proportions of a unique head drawing
- Stretch, squash and shape the face in a variety of different ways
- Draw alternative sets of facial features
- Design a range of hair styles
- Draw head accessories
- Clean up your head drawings with slick, smooth and sharp line art
When you've completed this course, you'll have an iron clad understanding of how to draw memorable heads that convey personality, intrigue and copious amounts of character. You'll possess the knowledge to design heads far beyond that of the average run-of-the-mill model which adheres to an idealized structure and proportions.
Comic artists, character designers, illustrators, and all other artists across the board, who enjoy drawing or painting people, are sure to benefit from the lessons taught in this class. So buckle in, and get your sketchbooks and pencils ready - Let's begin!
