This is another portrait from the Sktchy portrait course “Drawing Anatomy with Tiffany”. This is Beata and the focus was meant to be on her ear, though I had the most fun with her nose and eye as usual. I used Copic markers and Prismacolor coloured pencils.
This has been a long slow draw over a few days but I got there in the end. It’s a portrait of Jeeb from Sktchy for the “mouth” class of my Sktchy portrait anatomy class. I decided to use ballpoint pen for the portrait because I find mouths so hard to draw with ballpoints. Mouths are definitely my Achilles heel anyway ; they are unquestionably the facial feature I find the hardest to get right and I really struggle to get that roundness with ballpoint pens. Anyway I’m reasonably happy with how it turned out and I managed to draw teeth and they look OK!
I’ve been plagued with killer migraines for almost a week so haven’t done any drawing for days but what a face to return to. This is Matt from Sktchy and he was great drawing practice for eyes and a nose especially!
More nose drawing today for this portrait of Christopher, drawin on my iPad Pro using the Procreate app.
This is a portrait of Yanina, focusing on the nose, for Sktchy’s Anatomy with Tiffany class. I’m not sure what happened with my shadows here – she looks likes come out of a fight. I’ve spent a while trying to resolve the problem but given up for now – can’t quite figure out why I can’t get the blending to work. I’ll have to come back to it when I have the time and energy.
I’ve done a couple of nose studies in Procreate today – the most that I could manage on a busy work day today.
This is another portrait focusing on the eyes for Sktchy’s Anatomy with Tiffany course. The drawing is of Sarah’s mum and was made on an iPad Pro with the Procreate app.

A year or so ago I took a Sktchy portrait anatomy class with medical illustrator Tiffany S. Davanzo. I absolutely loved it and right now Tiffany is offering a new portrait anatomy course on Sktchy. I was trying to resist this new one because I don’t really have the time for it but, of course, once I saw portraits of skulls popping up in my Sktchy and Instagram feeds I caved and signed up. So here’s my first skull portrait. If you want to see other class portraits on Instagram the hashtag is #anatomywithtiffany.
