What you will learn
Instructor Charles Hu teaches you his approach to beginning head drawing in this six part series covering Proportions, the Structure of the Skull, Laws of Light, Achieving Likeness, Facial Features, and Facial Expressions. In this final lesson, Charles takes on the difficult task of drawing expressions. He emphasizes the importance of internalizing the expression that your model is showing, given that he or she will naturally relax their face throughout even a short pose. He teaches you to feel the stretch and pinch of various parts of the face and head to find rhythms and opportunities to exaggerate or modify your drawing. Embedded on this page are the same reference images that Charles used for his drawings.
