In week eight with instructor Glenn Vilppu, you will focus on developing contrast in your head drawings. Glenn will do a master copy to show you how to emphasize the core shadows, cast shadows, and reflected lights in your work for better depth. You will analyze examples by the Old Masters to see how they effectively rendered the human heads.
