Neck & Shoulder Study

Neck & Shoulder Study

In this module you’ll learn how to draw the neck and shoulders in a lifelike manner.




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 shavings 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 (Layering and 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 4 (Background)

In this video I reveal a special instrument I use for creating even opaque backgrounds. After applying Pitt Charcoal onto the drawing paper, I use this instrument in a circular motion – softly and carefully blending the charcoal deposits into the tooth of the paper.

Video 5 (Details & Highlights)

In this last portion of the drawing process I finish working on the details for the jaw, neck, shoulders and chest area. 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.
