Are you struggling to draw heads, faces and portraits? Do you want to draw with more skill, accuracy, likeness, realism and confidence?

Mastering Head and Portrait Drawing is the ultimate class for improving head drawing skill level and confidence. In this class you will learn simple and powerful tools and techniques to help you draw better and get consistent, quality results. Along with the knowledge and information, you will also get expert mentorship and guidance to help you improve fast.

What will I learn in the class?

I’ve been drawing characters and faces since I was a kid. My dream was to become an animator and illustrator for video games and movies.

Transitioning from a student to a professional and making my dream a reality was a struggle. When I first showed my portfolio to studios in Hollywood I was ignored and rejected for years…

Then I found some master artists who mentored and taught me very powerful but little known drawing technology. I studied and practiced this technology and my portfolio quickly improved.

Soon, my work got noticed and finally got my first big break as a video game concept artist. Eventually I transitioned to movie poster illustration where I get to draw realistic faces of my favorite actors, celebrities and characters for Hollywood films, TV shows and animation.

Now after over 20 years of experience as a professional artist, teaching hundreds of students and writing two books on drawing, I’ve developed my own portrait and head drawing technology.

The same knowledge and technology that helped me and hundreds of students improve their head drawing and achieve their goals is what you will learn in this exciting new class.
