    We are pleased to share with you a 10 week-long class brought to you by Art Mentors! In this class, Master draftsman, Glenn Vilppu teaches Constructive Head Drawing. The class will focus on the anatomical structures of the skull and face, and how to draw realistic features and expressions. In this first lesson, Glenn gives an introduction to his head drawing approach. Glenn will emphasize the importance of drawing from your knowledge of skull structure, and how to analyze the model, rather than copy. He will also go over basic proportions, and how to tackle various angles of the head.

    This course is nice and all but would it be possible to provide the reference he is actually using, it is incredibly difficult to follow along with the quick sketch when the reference is so small and blurry.

    i would like to congratulate you for an amazing course. For the first tine i understand the anatomy behind the good portraits. I tried other methods but I failed to comprehend the proportions, the differences  between faces nad what makes a face look real.

    You are a master. Thank you for sharing so important knowledge that I am definitely going to implement. in my art.


    Thank you so much!


    Kind regards,
