Dove McHargue “Drawing the Heroic Head”   12PM
The head is one of the most critical storytelling parts of any character. Whether your character creations are talking, laughing, or fighting, understanding what anatomy lies beneath the skin gives the artist a huge advantage when inventing and drawing those amazing characters.

Bring your supplies and be ready to draw!
