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, 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.
