The Layout -- In these first two classes, Darrel lays out exactly what you need to get started and presents the tools and confidence you need to make that first stroke. Base 4H Layer -- With the 4H pencil, you'll lay down a base layer of graphite in the darkest regions of your drawing and pave the way for the softer pencils. Focus on Clothing -- In Focus on Clothing, Darrel shares his secrets for drawing stunning textured patterns and reveals how you can use use the rules of light to create the creases, folds, and stitching that make your textures "touchable." Focus on Beard -- In Focus on Beard, Darrel employs his soft pencils, erasers, soft-haired brush, and knowledge of how light works to "pull" some hairs forward and "push" others into the background to create depth, variety, and ultrarealistic dimension. Fine Tuning -- In these five classes, you'll move beyond the surface of the 5-Pencil Method and dig deep into the subtle details that make all of the difference. Master the art of balancing values. Learn to spot inconsistencies. And discover how even the smallest adjustments can make a world of difference when it comes to capturing a subject's character. The Softer Layers -- In these classes you're tasked with using your softer pencils (HB, 2B, 4B) to build up and balance the darker values on the left side of the face. This critical step will help you create more depth and give you a wider range of value within your portrait. Balancing Values -- Darrel will show you how to maintain a gentle, dimension-boosting gradation that simulates how light works as it moves from the area closest to the light source, across the face, and into the shadows. Finishing Touches -- The final class takes you one last time over the entire portrait for the chance to fill in gaps, balance values, and ensure that you're getting the most out of your highlights. Then, Darrel shares his tips for cleaning up and signing your portrait.
