    Learning the structure and gesture of the human skull is an important exercise to make your head drawings and portraits more realistic. Chris Legaspi shows you his approach to conceptualizing the skull’s proportions, angles, and landmarks. Drawing from skull references photographed at various angles, he first outlines the basic rules-of-thumb for drawing a skull and then moves on to rendering accurate representations of the skull. Chris is full of nuggets of knowledge about shadow mapping, value control, and technique! Find on this page the same reference photos that he used.

    I like your talking, Chris. You can talk as much as you want 🙂

    I found this lesson was really helpful after studying some of the other more in-depth anatomical skull videos. This one was great for getting overall proportions, and I am able to draw skulls a lot faster and more accurately now. Love the Boba Fett reference!
