In this series, master artist Steve Huston brings you his highly-anticipated advanced head drawing lessons. In the third lesson, Steve will expound on the effect of aging on the anatomy of the head, making keen comparisons between the physics of drapery and the structure of aging skin. Often we work from models in the prime of their life, but it’s useful to know the effects of aging so that we can modify our characterizations of any particular model. Follow along with Steve as he tackles the key features that change with age, such as the eyelids, structure of the barrel of the mouth, and slope of the nose. Steve lectures on drapery (wrinkles), general shapes of an aged character, and specifically the structure of the eye. He does several demonstrations and an assignment working from photo references, which you can find attached to this page.
