Dave Malan's portrait drawing
txels last edited by
This last summer I took Dave Malan's course on portrait drawing and I recommend it. What I found most useful for me was the emphasis on systematically approaching drawing from the larger shapes to the smaller ones and details at the end.
I had made myself a challenge of drawing a portrait a day on summer 2019, and repeated it again on August 2020 starting with Dave's course. The idea is 1-2h per portrait at most.
Here is a sample of the portraits I made, in chronological order. It feels great to see the progress that comes from continued practice.
Feedback is welcome!
