Recently, a student requested some private mentoring sessions, and supplied the reference image used in this drawing. I’ve decided to make the main tutorial from this private mentoring available to purchase as a standalone tutorial.
This video tutorial demonstrates every step in the creation of this drawing, from start to finish, in crystal-clear HD video. Together with the video tutorial, you are also supplied with the Painter 16 brush presets used, my own layered RIF file, and a layered RIF file for you to create your own drawing on.
Although this has all the freedom of a draw-from-scratch project, you’ll begin by creating an accurate and detailed trace-sketch, directly over the top of the reference image. Starting with a trace sketch makes the whole process much less intimidating, giving you the chance to concentrate on shading, careful line work, and tonality.
This classic technique of Black, Red, and White chalk is ideally suited to portraits, and after following me through this full-length demonstration you’ll be all set to create beautiful portrait drawings from your own references.
You’ll find some short excerpts from the demonstration below. Total running time of complete demonstration is approx 2.5 hrs
Make sure to hit ‘HD’ and choose 1080p in the video below.
