We've decided to release an entire 3 hour video lesson from our New Masters Academy subscription library to give you an idea of the quality of content you can expect from our Web site. Go to to learn more.
In this exciting in-depth drawing series, instructor Steve Huston shows you a step-by-step construction of the human head. He covers the basic forms and more detailed intermediate constructs of the head as well as the eyes, nose, mouth and ears.
In this lesson, you will learn how to use basic shapes (boxes, cylinders, spheres) to form the basic structure of the head. This lesson is a fundamental step in learning how to create a solid foundation to place the features of the face on. He will also show you how to construct the basic head in different perspectives. Following Steve's lecture, he will illustrate how the Old Masters constructed the human head.
You will then be given a timed assignment from Steve to utilize what you have learned and practice your skills. Finally, Steve will share with you how he goes about the assignment through his own techniques.

    • Nathan Ubeda not every approach is a good fit for every artist. We have many other head courses with artists like Mark Westermoe, Charles Hu, Glenn Vilppu, Chris Legaspi, Iliya Mirochnik etc. Some are more procedural as in first do this then this then that and others are more loose and conceptual such as Steve’s approach.

Each energy-sphere has a certain sound (Frequency = Hz) of music that they vibrate on and when you MAKE THE SAME SOUND IN YOUR MIND THAT YOU ARE HEARING while listening to the sound while meditating or just listening with headphones to get the maximum effect and tuning the sound into your MIND.

As SPIRIT in a PHYSICAL FORM, is a BEING of FREQUENCY of HARMONIOUS SOUND can make items vibrate with their MIND, by learning the SOUND for their MIND, for benefit of OTHERS and your-SELF by creating the frequency of the Hz above with your MIND and then directing it to an ITEM or another BEING.
