Video 3 (Layering)

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 4 (Lips & Teeth Details)

In this stage of the drawing process, I demonstrate how I apply details to the lips and teeth. This part of the drawing process is what brings out the life in the subject. Slowly and meticulously I work into details creating forms and textures – creating the hyper-real effect.

Video 5 (Highlights & Finishing Touches)

In this last portion of the drawing process I  finish working on the details of the bottom lip and I also 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.
