Advanced Head Drawing

Master artist Steve Huston brings you his highly-anticipated advanced head drawing series. In the 4th installment, he shows you that the rigid and elastic parts of the face and head dictate their ability to move with a given expression. There are key points of the face that are pushed, and others that are pulled. Being mindful of the “marionette-string” features of the facial muscles allows you to emulate and exagerrate the expressions of your model in your drawings. Steve will do several demonstrations working from photo references, which you can find attached to this page.
