DF101 Drawing Portraits of Children

Level Beginner (For artists with little/no experience or who wish to expand their skills)
Duration3 weeks
Teacher None (self-directed)
Credits Figures: 1

The facial proportions of children follow different guidelines than adults. The most common mistake of beginners when drawing a child’s portrait is to make the face too big in proportion to the size of the skull. For example, a baby’s cranial mass is more than three times larger than the facial mass, whereas an adult's cranial mass is only twice the size of the facial mass.
