HELLO & WELCOME!
Thank you for joining the How to Draw Faces Workshop, I'm glad you're here! We are going to dive deep into drawing the face and kick self-doubt out the door! The very first think we will do is establish feature placement. By the end of this workshop you will be creating faces with confidence. You got this!
All you need is a pencil (I use a 2b pencil), eraser and a sketchbook!
Creating a Drawing Routine
Keep in mind that you don't have to complete this workshop in one day (I recommend you take your time and pace yourself). There are enough lessons for you to schedule a drawing session 2 times a week for the next 4 weeks. It may not take you that long but that's an option if you would like.
I would also like to invite you to take the 5-Day Face Drawing Challenge which goes hand and hand with this workshop. There you will learn how to draw small sketches everyday and fill your sketchbook on a regular basis. Sign-up here.
Where do the features go?
Print your worksheets and follow along as we breakdown each feature and where it goes on the face!
How to do Shading
Using the same worksheets from our placement studies we will practice shading. This video may seem familiar because it's from the 5 - Day Face Drawing Challenge but I wanted to include it here for anyone who needs the practice.
