Jacob Hankinson is an incredible draftsman and his drawings seem to bloom effortlessly from his fingertips, inspiring a devoted following among fellow artists. In his first portrait drawing video, Jacob shares how he captures a likeness with charcoal on newsprint in poses lasting from 5 minutes to over an hour. He explains how he thinks about the underlying structures of the head and features to create soulful portraits with evocative expression. The demonstrations allow the viewer to understand why his drawings are so powerful and how to incorporate his approach into their own artwork.
