tutorials. Step-by-step drawing of a portrait. How to draw faces.
This section covers basics of drawing portraits. Shading and rendering, basic drawing techniques, choosing drawing materials, and other drawing fundamentals.
While the pages and tutorials on this section cover some "basic" concepts of drawing, a modest amount of drawing experience is recommended. However, even drawing and art "newbies" should be able to get a lot out of the tutorials.
is the philosophy of the tutorials on this site that understanding and
