Sight-Size Portrait Project

In this crash course, instructor Leo Mancini-Hresko will teach you how to draw a portrait of a live model using the sight-size method. You will learn to apply the same technique used for drawing three-dimensional objects to a human portrait, with the difference being that your model will be slightly moving. Leo will start with a block-in of the model. Then, you will watch him focus on modeling form and unifying values. After this course, you will develop great confidence in creating tonal portrait drawings from life.
