Overview

How to Draw Portraits is a unique collection of techniques, terminology, and examples for the beginner and advanced graphite artist. Over one hundred illustrations support carefully reviewed explanations of elemental technique. Discover that you can draw with an eraser and simulate skin texture with circularism. Find out how to draw hair, and how to break down complex shapes into simple abstract components. Use layers and "punch-up" your work. You can even draw with a brush and graphite dust.

Most drawing guides explain fundamental principles, but this book takes the topic much deeper than others on the market. You will learn to understand and use many exciting ways to put marks on paper and bring an image to life.

This book distills five years of practice and research into a few hundred pages of concise, accurate information with a comprehensive index for easy navigation.
