In week 12, instructor Miles Yoshida will guide you through his process of completing the self-portrait drawing. You will learn how to adjust the overall values of the drawing, emphasize the core shadows, and introduce the reflective lights. Miles will show you how he renders small details like beards and eyelashes. You will also watch Miles tackle the hair and his collars differently to add variations to the artwork.
