This video is a segment of a twenty minute portrait of a young woman. The artist Matthew Archambault expresses heavy focus on the hair and eyes giving you tips and techniques on how to attain the best results. He uses an eraser to add highlights to the areas surrounding the eyes and upper cheek to give a more three dimensional drawing. Fantastic narration and easy to follow instructional advice. Great for the intermediate artist looking to improve their technique in pencil drawing.
Class artist Archambault puts his pencil to the test and tackles one of the hardest features in portraiture, hair. There are many different ways to draw hair, some prefer minimal fuss and less lines whilst others like to get right in there and seek out all the tonal values and shades which complete an extremely realistic look. You will not be let down by Matt and this relatively long tutorial will allow you to follow in your own time. Have fun with those pencils.
