Ramon Hurtado: Drawing the Human Head Videos


Ramon is pretty much a boss- he single handedly made drawing fun in less than an hour. When I first started trying drawing a while back, I asked the guy who was trying to teach me if there is any special ways to hold pencils or think about stuff in general about how to make strokes and marks and he didn’t have any good answers… but with Ramon, boom! within the first 30 minutes of the first class all of my questions and thoughts are validated and answered – with relish.

If you want to feel more confident being able to draw heads and portraits but never retain the information after studying, then this course is for you. Ramon Hurtado breaks down the structure and anatomy of the head in detail, along with general foundational drawing concepts, and makes the information approachable, and most importantly fun.  After this course, you can actually use and remember the information you learn in your art, and not redraw anatomy diagrams. These lectures and demos will help you to:

  • Learn the bones, muscles, and fat pads of the head in a simple, approachable way
  • Learn the structure of the head so that you can use the information for an artistic purpose
  • Learn how to get a likeness
  • Learn how to draw hair in an efficient and artistic way
  • Learn important concepts related to how to draw any subject
  • Retain information with fun and simple analogies like the Scary Eye

At the end of the course, you’ll have a full understanding of the structure and anatomy of the head, from the skeleton to the muscles and fat pads.
