The fundamental proportions of facial features that are most commonly taught are based on caucasian facial structures.

This is why it is more important than ever to DRAW WHAT YOU SEE,NOT WHAT YOU KNOW.

This is when you will notice all of the specific information that makes you YOU!

And more importantly, you should develop your rendering skills in a range of ethnicities, genders, ages, etc.

TRY

try imageAs artists, we are often our biggest critics.

We might worry about whether we are good enough, or what others around us think about our work.

As we start this new school year, I encourage you to TRY.

You will never know what you are capable unless you TRY.

You will never grow, unless you are willing to leave your comfort zone and TRY.

There are no mistakes, only experiences to learn and grow from.

So get out of your way, and let’s get started!
