Study Hall: Two Techniques for Drawing Faces


Drawing portraits: Difficult! Unless you try these two tricks in this week’s Study Hall.

In our current community kourse, Sketchbook Skool fakulty member Nelleke Verhoeff gave lessons on her unique approaches to drawing portraits with techniques she used in her Face A Day project. In this Study Hall video, Sketchbook Skool co-founder Danny Gregory shows you what he drew. If you have magazines or books with faces, you can try these two fun techniques too. They make portrait drawing simpler and also show off your own unique style.

Our next community kourse is Seeing, which teaches you how to look at the world the way artists do. Community kourses are taken by people just like you from all over the world, and they’re great for all skill levels. Seeing starts this Monday, March 6; click here to check out a preview.
