Portrait Drawing The Smart Way – The Eye – Frontal View — 10 Comments

  1. great video! my eye turned out perfect. so proud of myself! the only problem is i don’t have white charcoal. besides that its beautiful!

  2. I have improved more in the few days that I have been taking these lessons than I did in a month of trying to relearn the drawing skills that I lost due to Traumatic Brain Injury. As Karonne said, “I am proud of myself.” Thank You. If you can teach these elderly brain damaged student, you can instruct anyone to become a proficient artist.

  3. Making my way through this course, slowly but surely. Pastel portraits call me, but I need these basics. Drawing the details, learning the shadowing & planes etc.
    Thanks Matt.

  4. This was a great lesson. I really like the way my drawing came out. I enjoy drawing eyes and usually start a drawing with the eyes. If I can get them right then the rest seems to follow. Thanks Matt

  5. Hello Matt
    This is so good and has helped me a lot, but I’m struggling when the scale is much smaller. Might you have something on your site that addresses facial features in graphite when the scale is small? Thanks

    • Hi Genevieve,

      The modules that come later in the course do cover drawing eyes on a smaller scale. Look for the modules that cover the complete portrait drawing process.
