Portrait Drawing Video
Check out the extended cut of David Jamieson’s time-lapse portrait drawing video that’s been such a hit on YouTube! This longer version features detailed voiceover by David describing his process for drawing – what he uses, what he thinks about and what he looks for while drawing the portrait. It’s like a mini master-class in portrait drawing for just 10 bucks!
The drawing video is an MP4 file, which is a broadly deployed file format. Depending on your playback options, however, you may need to download a player that can read MP4’s. A popular choice is VLC – a cross-platform, free media player that can handle just about any file format out there. You can download VLC here.
