Workshop Booster Session - for the 4 Day Grisaille Portrait Workshop
Finishing Touches and Final Considerations
The Workshop Booster Session
This workshop booster session is an optional bonus (only available for those who purchased the 4-Day course) where we'll cover elements that we didn't inside the workshop.
Our goal in the booster is to work on just the final drawing steps!
We'll push the colors in both a warm and cool direction, depending on the area.
We'll show how to use the value structure in place to create smooth skin.
We'll be completing the shadow side of the face, correcting some proportions in the eyes, nose, and mouth.
We'll also fully rendering the hair, to create a believable, long, brunette border to the face.
As always, we'll talk about and show how to create depth and dimension.
