Everything you need to know to achieve a realistic portrait is here, including how to make flat drawings look three-dimensional, comfortably pose subjects, and work with structure, perspective and proportion. Practice blending, hatching, cross-hatching, and stippling. Try working from photographs and with live models. Plenty of hints are included on creating convincing likenesses of specific features such as hair, eyes, mouths, and noses. Draw babies, children, and adults of different ages. Capture different skin tones and hair textures. Each project is done in a particular medium, but also includes an alternative drawing of the same subject produced with different materials, enabling you to fully explore this rewarding art form.
