In this exciting in-depth drawing series, instructor Steve Huston shows you a step-by-step construction of the human head. He covers the basic forms and more detailed intermediate constructs of the head as well as the eyes, nose, mouth and ears.
In this lesson, you will learn how to use basic shapes (boxes, cylinders, spheres) to form the basic structure of the head. This lesson is a fundamental step in learning how to create a solid foundation to place the features of the face on. He will also show you how to construct the basic head in different perspectives. Following Steve's lecture, he will illustrate how the Old Masters constructed the human head.
You will then be given a timed assignment from Steve to utilize what you have learned and practice your skills. Finally, Steve will share with you how he goes about the assignment through his own techniques.

  • finally a long video to explain what I need to know. You can't explain how to draw a head in 10 minutes, the anatomy is just to much to learn in a short video.

  • Serious stuff...very interesting indeed...the only drawback the captions on a black background overlapping the demoes e.g . The baby by Raphael...and the rest listens as if blindfolded...cannot keep up properly with the worthy comments ... must reiterate my sincere thanks for your worthy lecture....

  • Thank you so much! I’m 14 and trying to learn art, I didn’t know where to start and you have no idea how much this helps, when I was younger I had no idea where to start or what to do! I was always following the wrong sources and I gave up so many times, and felt discouraged, I was at the verge of giving up art completely because anatomy annoyed me, I was thinking of starting to get serious again and failed to find the right recourses! This explains so much! I fully understand and I’m very grateful! This is so helpful years of not understanding and this helped god bless

  • This made me subscribe to the website, just amazing. Btw what's the name of this head drawing technique? I tried loomis method but it's SO not good at least for my needs. Also it's extremely difficult. But this head technique is so intuitive and "free" lol.
