Atlas of Facial Anatomy
Atlas of Facial Anatomy for Portrait Artists
Now that you’ve attained your basic portrait drawing skills (i.e., striking shape and developing tone) there is simply no better way to step up your portraiture than by acquiring an understanding of the underlying architecture of the human head – that’s the Anatomy.
Knowing how a feature is put together and, surprisingly, given a name demystifies it. There’s no more guesswork. No more struggling with a vague form that never quite looks right.
The Atlas of Facial Anatomy is an invaluable PDF resource that builds up and details the anatomy of the head and neck step-by-step with clear, concise drawings presenting both the frontal and profile portrait views. Begin with the formation of the skull and then proceed to understand each and every muscle that contributes to the myriad range of human expression.
Never be stuck on how to proceed with a difficult, nondescript form. Now you can just look it up and immediately understand what you’re looking at.
