Thank you for taking an interest in my tutorials page, it took me 3 years of drawing 5-8 hours most days, along with countless hours of researching tools and techniques, to achieve the results seen in the portraits I create today. I was never really in a financial position to allocate several hundred pound for tutorials from the artists I admired, which would have undoubtedly accelerated this huge learning curve, so I wanted to put something together that was not only educational, but cost effective and insightful. With this in mind, I created the following tutorials to teach you how to achieve photorealistic finishes to your portraits, which take you from outline stage to completion. You will learn how to add a full range of beautifully rich, saturated values, using pencils (excluding the charcoal bundle). So whichever method you use to create your outline, whether it be freehand, grid method, Loomis method, or any other method of choice, by the end of these tutorials you will have learned the skills necessary to create dazzling photo like finishes to your portraits.
