About This Class

In this class, I’ll be teaching you my own tips and tricks for constructing the features of the human face. Each feature is showcased in two separate videos, none running longer than 15 minutes. In the first video, we cover a bit of the anatomy of the feature. In the second video, we dive into drawing that feature using simple shapes and layering detail on top. 

Every face is different and every feature unique. So during these videos I’ll also drop tips on how to add variety to your eyes, noses, mouths and ears so that you aren’t stuck drawing the same face over and over.

Your class project will include a couple of practice worksheets to exercise what you’ll learn. You’ll also get reference sheets and photos to aid you on your quest.

By the end of this class, you’ll walk away with a couple of formulas for drawing facial features seamlessly. You’ll be able to construct eyes, noses, mouths and ears from reference and imagination!

See you in class!

This class is beginner friendly and also recommended for intermediates who want to brush up on their skills or learn a new tip or trick.
