You can use these to check the general size, shape and position of features in your drawings. If you view a head from the front, its width is approximately two thirds of its height. Proportions of the Head - Illus. 2 The proportions of the head can be divided horizontally into four equal quarters. The first quarter measures from the top of the head down to the hairline. These proportions will only work if we share the same eye level as the subject. Proportions of the Head - Illus. 3 Many artists start a portrait with the eyes as they are the focal point of any face.

PORTRAIT DRAWINGS step by step instructions Drawing a portrait of yourself, or of someone you know, is the most difficult of all subjects to draw in my experience as an Artist and an Art Teacher. To help you learn to draw a portrait I developed these mix and match sheets to make the process more interesting. I do not see these mix and match portrait sheets as an end in themselves but rather a more painless step in learning to draw portraits from life. I suggest that you follow the steps from this first page to get the right proportions. Eyes for mix and match portraits. Noses for mix and match portraits. Mouths for mix and match portraits. More difficult mouths for mix and match portraits. Page one of heads for mix and match portraits. Page two of heads for mix and match portraits. Page three of heads for mix and match portraits.

t↑te muscles 1 1 transparent 2 Sketch Study – How To Draw An Awesome Eye Step 1: Blank Slate Let me start by saying that everyone’s style is different. I personally have a messy style of drawing. Take what you want from this tutorial and leave the rest. Step 2: Draw the Outline Lightly draw the outline of an eye. Step 3: Add More Outlines Draw a circle for the iris, the tear duct, the upper eyelid crease, and the edge of the lower eyelid. Make sure the iris is not dead center. Step 4: Outline the Pupil and Highlights Most eyes have a reflection of the light source. Step 5: Add Texture To Iris Every eye has a unique pattern, so add yours. Step 6: Darken Around Iris and Around Pupil Using the same stroke style as step 5, you should darken the edges. Step 7: Fill In the Pupil and Darken the Outer Edge Now you fill in the pupil and trace the outer edge. Step 8: Shade the Top of the Iris and Around the Highlights Darken the top of the iris (see below) and around the highlights to provide contrast. Step 9: Give Shading to the White of the Eye Gently add lower lashes. Durba

t↑te os 1 1 transparent The Fear of Values The Fear of Values by teaching_kids_art , January 31, 2009—12:00 AM Topics: Drawing, Mistakes, art education, fear, shading, teaching, teaching art, values The title of this article might suggest that I__™ll be exploring some kind of compelling Freudian doctrine concerning moral phobias. I__™m afraid, however, that my topic is nowhere near as intriguing and will entirely circumvent discussing either the id or the ego. Beginning drawers are exceedingly timid creatures who often only make their initial progress in the tiniest of steps. I find that in the early weeks of a class I must choose my words ever so carefully when providing constructive criticism. However, once they start to recognize actual improvement in their own work, the pace of progress takes on a more confident stride. Interestingly enough, this trend of latent shading is even more specific in that most students are surprisingly resistant to dark values. ~Michael Mize
