Drawing Portraits: Fun, Simple, and Easy!
Drawing portraits has always been a passion of mine. This section is dedicated to helping even the newest newbie learn how to draw faces accurately and build confidence in the process..
Most people think in terms of symbols when they draw a picture of something.
They draw the same picture, or symbols, over and over for a certain thing, perhaps a chair, and they definitely do this when drawing people.
The key to creating a good likeness is to draw what you see and not the generic picture symbol you learned in 3rd grade.
Learning what something looks like and drawing its likeness is not the same as drawing the same picture for that object every time.
This section will help you learn how to manipulate that “symbol” you are using for faces so you can draw them however you want.
In this section you will also find templates you can download so you can practice right along at home
. They will provide a breakdown of all the elements of the face, including the eyes, ears, mouth, nose, and hair. There will also be supplemental videos available soon for each to help further demonstrate and provide a fun learning experience.
Let’s face it (no pun intended; well, maybe a little), if you’re not having fun while you learn and it’s not interesting, you probably won’t continue and then you’ll be stuck drawing all those symbols from 3rd grade or, worse, you’ll stop drawing portraits altogether!
