Drawing Forensic

This master workshop provides an intense five days of advanced techniques for skull-to-face reconstruction drawing. The 2-D technique will be reviewed with emphasis on accurate prediction of the facial soft tissues from bony clues. This includes subtleties of head and neck muscle attachments, individual feature development and anomalies.  Methods for repairs of missing areas of the skull and missing mandibles will be discussed. During class, there will be exercises of various ancestries and ages to provide the opportunity to simulate actual forensic case experience in a compressed time frame.  Upon completion of each facial reconstruction exercise, attendees will view a photograph of the person in life for comparison. This unique training opportunity is unavailable in any other drawing course.
