    In this three part series, Chris Legaspi covers everything you need to know about beginning portrait drawing, from start to finish. In this second lesson of the series, Chris covers the lay-in process. He will begin with a thorough lecture, introducing you to his steps for creating a portrait lay-in. Following the lecture, you will have an assignment that will give you a chance to put what you’ve learned into practice. The lesson will conclude with Chris’s version of the same assignment, allowing you to compare your work with his.

    Amazing lessons from you  Chris. I was waiting for all 20 minutes you will adjust her chin. It is a little too wide and lowered ( camera view right) .

    Cheers,

    Tomas

    The reference images used by the instructor would be useful here (Part 2: Lay-In; practice, practice, practice). Please provide reference images. -Thanks

    When you moved over to drawing digitally I find it really hard to see the soft lines of your work. Most of the time I can’t see what you’re actually doing.

    Lise,

    Is your video player set to the highest HD quality?

    It wasn’t at first, but I changed it to the highest setting. But I still find it hard to see all the marks. It’s very faint.

    What’s the best way to learn from these lessons? Should I draw along with each video, or digest all of the videos, do the assignment at the end, and then continue practicing?

    Sorry but I have a criticism with some of Chris’ video.

    The explanations are fine and Chris is really a great instructor. However, the portraits he made in video 4 and 5 are very off proportions. It would not be a big deal if Chris didn’t say that he felt satisfied with his drawing !

    It’s too bad because it spoils the whole content which is fine.
