His process of building from a layer of vine charcoal (in many forms) before layers with the more permanent charcoal pencil and compressed charcoal is easy to understand. He uses his fingers, palms, paper napkins and kneaded eraser to smooth, blend, and highlight the lighted areas of the drawing.
It is magical to see how he pulls this incredibly beautiful head out of blank paper. If drawing is your nemesis, this is a program you will want to view over and over to see how little is required to create a head of astounding sculptural quality on a flat piece of paper.
This is another program we recommend for your art video library, and one you will refer to often if you are interested in perfecting your drawing techniques.
I studied with Zhaoming at the Academy in San Francisco. Hes one amazing artist. I always wanted to watch him draw a head again...as Ive since graduated and no longer watch him in person and this dvd doesnt disappoint. You really have to watch it many times to understand what he does and how he thinks when he draws this head. Hes a great teacher and artist. His explanations are excellent as is the demo. Thanks Zhaoming.
