Hi my name is Carrie and here on Artist Strong I help artists like you build your skill and develop your unique artist voice.
Today I want to talk about mastering likeness in your portraits.
We are going to talk about:
How capturing likeness isn’t about copying the photo reference;
Tips to help you see the information in your photo reference and painting or drawing that you sometimes miss; and
How people aren’t actually harder to draw than anything else, but we’ll talk about WHY we feel that way.
We end with some quick tips on aging (or not aging) your portrait subject and a few considerations when refining your artwork.
