Likeness Sensitivity Child Portrait Charcoal by Jeff Hein

Likeness & Sensitivity in Children's Portrait

We don't often realize it, but many artists reflect how they view themselves onto the portraits of children, not just other adults. This makes youth look years older than they really. In this lesson, Jeff teaches how to convey the true age of child subjects with correct shapes and proportions, principles that could vastly improve realism in the likeness in your work. Grab your instruments and weed out where your own weaknesses are, watching to see how Jeff solves many of the common beginner pitfalls. ( 2+ hours)
