All About Drawing Realistic Portraits in Pencil

November 8, 2009

I recently finished my series of pencil portrait lessons and thought I’d put them all in one easy-to-access place for you! Here are 17 helpful articles that cover everything from drawing the individual facial features to shading your drawings. Everything you need to learn how to draw realistic portraits is here!

The lessons take two different forms: a how to lesson that features drawing  hints and strategies, and a tutorial that takes you through each process step-by-step.
