Kelvin Okafor Art Academy: Module 5 – Ear Study

Happy to announce the release of my fifth academy tutorial!
3 hours of drawing in real-timetime! From the very first marking on paper to the last finishing touch. I will be narrating the journey from start to finish on how I created this freehand ear drawing.
There is also a transcript available for you to translate to your preferred languages.

The drawing tutorial is broken down into 5 videos:

  1. Introduction and Materials
  2. Outlining
  3. Background
  4. Layering & Structuring
  5. Details & Highlights

Video 1 (Introduction and Materials)
In this video I highlight all the materials I will be using in the drawing. I demonstrate how I create compressed charcoal shaving and how I apply it in my drawings.

Video 2 (Outlining)
In this video I show you how I create my proportions using freehand. I demonstrate and elaborate on the importance of the specified tools use to map out an outline – creating the foundation to build upon.

Video 3 (Background)
In this video I reveal my secret tool I use for creating and layering my backgrounds. When applying compressed charcoal onto the paper on using to draw, I use this secret tool to blend in the charcoal – creating an even layer to build upon. I also reveal to appliance I use to clean up dust deposits from the charcoal shavings used.

Video 4 (Layering & Structuring)
In this portion of the drawing process I demonstrate how I build up layers creating lifelike tonal values. This part of my drawing process is the most important with achieving a photo-real depiction of a subject.

Video 5 (Details & Highlights)
In this last portion of the drawing process I finish working on the details of the ear. I go back to restructure certain shapes, tonal values and details.

In this stage of the process I highlight the drawing tools I use to achieve highlights within the drawing. I go back to certain areas of the drawing to remeasure proportions and fine-tune the balance light and reflection.

A high quality downloadable print with a signed Certificate of Authenticity will also accompany the print. You will have a lifetime access to the course video so you can watch at your own leisure.

I trust you’re going to love this one as I reveal many techniques including one of my biggest secret tricks!
