Craftsy: Drawing The Human Face

drawingthehumanface1

Our quality sponsor this week is Craftsy which provides classes for all you aspiring artists. I tried out a couple classes myself and they were great for picking up the basics. If you fell asleep during life drawing, or skipped art school altogether, this is your lucky day: They’re currently offering a free downloadable eGuide on “Drawing the Human Face”.

The eGuide gives you a quick overview of things like placing facial features, adding life to eyes, and drawing realistic hair. If you’re interested: Download the eGuide for free.
