Drawing The Mouth - Master Class - Parts 1, 2 and 3
Master one of the most challenging features of the face - the MOUTH!
This Master Class series on drawing the Mouth tackles the most difficult part of drawing the mouth- THE TEETH! And we do it in colored pencil! In the third video we get a little crazy and even through in a beard with teeth.
This 3 part series was delivered to a group of students on-line. These recordings are available for streaming or downloading for convenience. Enjoy!
Some of the Issues we deal with are:
1. Do I draw the teeth white, even when I see they aren't?
2. How do I keep the color balance and make the mouth, gums and teeth look realistic?
3. How do I create edges and space in-between teeth without the jack-o-lantern look?
