About This Class

Most of us thought that the average face shape was oval however, it turns out that only 14 per cent actually have an oval shaped face.

Explore and draw faces using the kite, heart, rectangle, oval, round, square, teardrop, heptagon and oblong shapes and see how some shapes are more successful than others when trying to depict a specific age, gender or personality type.

Use this class to:-

  • experiment and 'play' with your own style of drawing faces using shape as your inspiration
  • give you the confidence and try new ways of drawing faces
  • create a new set of faces to add to your portfolio of character ideas

Nina's character development series will inspire and support you creative journey, uncovering new possibilities with your character designs.
