Portrait drawing intro

A good portrait captures the essence of the subject while also obeying anatomical rules. This is easier said than done when you consider that the human face is made up of many intricate parts. To help you learn how to draw a face, Wacom has put together this mini course of illustration videos by Darlene Nguyen.

Nguyen, who has shared a treasure trove of videos on her site RapidFireArt, is the perfect tutor if you need simple and easy advice. Thanks to her easy to understand videos, you'll learn how to conjure up noses, eyes, and whole faces from scratch.
