In week five, instructor Glenn Vilppu will teach you how to draw the head, focusing on value control through various pencil techniques. You will watch Glenn analyze the use of values in masterworks, then apply that to capture a live model. He will also demonstrate how to create drawings without the block-in of the structure, visualizing landmarks of the skull and how they relate to each other.
