Discover the Secrets of Drawing Realistic Portraits

Realistic Portrait Drawing Class

Have you ever seen a realistic portrait and wished that you knew how to create something similar? Thanks to My Modern Met Academy's new course, Realistic Portrait Drawing Made Easy, you'll discover all the tips, tricks, and techniques to produce a portrait that looks incredibly real.

Taught by accomplished artist Matheus Macedo, who is known for his realistic drawings, this online class takes you step by step through the creative process. Macedo will show you the basic tools that you'll need to get started, as well as provide tips on selecting a good reference photo. Then, he'll go over two ways to transfer the image onto paper before diving into how to sketch, shade, and create volume on every feature of the face. In a little over two hours, you'll truly get a masterclass on realistic portrait drawing.

As part of the class, you'll be provided with Macedo's reference photo, so you can draw side by side and walk away with a refined portrait of your own. And while this class is geared towards those at an intermediate level, beginners who have some concept of proportion and shading should also feel free to take the plunge.
