Drawing the Human Head with Mike Creighton
Want to create a convincing portrait? You have to get the head right. In this beginner-friendly group class, multidisciplinary artist Mike Creighton will teach you the fundamentals of drawing the human head and all its features from different angles.
Headstrong, All August Long
Starting August 3, Mike will release a new batch of video lessons every Monday in Sktchy Art School.
- 9 pre-recorded video lessons in total
- 30-45 minutes per lesson (approximately)
- Inspiring reference photos to draw
We'll start with an introduction to the Loomis drawing method, and then do warm-up exercises to learn the basic structure of the head.
Next, we'll cover all the major features of the face and head: the nose, eyes, mouth and ears, breaking them down into their simplified forms and learning how to place them correctly.
Finally, we’ll bring it all together and construct the human head from three different angles: profile view, frontal view, 3/4 view.
By the end of the class, you’ll have all the building blocks for drawing believable, well-constructed heads.
Got Questions? Get Answers – Live!
In addition to the pre-recorded lessons, Mike will be hosting a live broadcast every Sunday during August 2020 to answer student questions while creating a new portrait. Don't worry if you can't watch live: You get lifetime access to the recordings, so you can watch (and rewatch) at your convenience.
