Constructive Head Drawing

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. Glenn’s unique approach to head drawing will guide students through the process of constructing the head. In this fourth lesson, Glenn will focus on technique when laying in structure and how to control value through analyzing master works. He will also demonstrate how to create a rendering by visualizing certain points of the skull relative to each other, without the construction of the structure.
