  • Successfully portray a drawn face (no more wonky eyes!). Jane walks you through the anatomical proportions of the face, and gives advice on what to emphasize.
  • Give your profile an extra pop of personality with tips for adding volume, shading, and emotive elements to the illustrated face.
  • Create a range of face types with confidence thanks to step-by-step approaches to drawing straight forward, turned faces, and profiles.

Indulge in a fun, mixed-media frenzy of color! Jane sums up her imaginative approach best in the opening of her workshop: “Whimsical faces are based on reality, but play with the proportions so they’re a little bit quirky so when you look at them, they’ve got a bit of magic about them.”

Wonderful teacher Review by Janet

Jane Davenport is an excellent teacher. She makes it so easy to learn how to draw that within hrs you just have to try. I would recommend this video to anyone who want to learn how to draw just about any kind of face.

Will watch again and again! Review by Denise
Rating

I purchased this video download because of all the positive reviews. I was originally going to order Jane's book on the same subject but after watching another video I realize that I learn better by watching and doing vs. just reading about a topic. I was NOT disappointed. Jane is a delight to watch! I learned so much about facial structure and what makes a face look whimsical, older, younger, etc. Jane not only tells and shows us what to do, she talks about the materials she uses and why something works and does not work. I've only gone through her video one time and will be trying her methods this week in my art journal. I'm sure I'll be reviewing it again and again in my art journey.

Fun and easy to follow Review by Janene
Rating

Jane is a personality. A delight. I draw a lot of faces and had never tried to do any in a whimsical way so was very interested to see her technique and explanation of what she is doing. She is very thorough in her instructions. I had not planned to use her techniques, only to see them from an outsider viewpoint - however not long afterward I painted a face and much to my surprise it took on some subtle whimsy - and I know that Jane is the one that introduced it into my repertoire. It looked pretty cool. Thanks Jane.
I liked Janes energy and enthusiasm. It felt very fresh and real. .

One of the best teaching videos I have ever seen! Review by Angela
Rating

I have taken a few on line art classes, and I have to say that Jane has one of the best teaching videos out there, and its worth every penny you spend on it! I use to be afraid to draw a side profile, but her instructions makes drawing them easier than I could ever imagine.

I have been trying for MONTHS to get whimsical faces that I liked. I've read, watched videos, lamented... Until now. After watching this video through (and smiling the whole time - because who wouldn't smile listening to this lovely woman), my very first face is a LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! Thank you!!

Brilliant Review by Kelly

Now, I've watched a lot of digital workshops, but this is my all-time favourite. Warm, wonderful, quirky Jane is the most wonderful teacher. I love the way she explains things, I learnt soooo much from this video. I can now draw a pretty face! Very exciting!

Great Instruction, camara angles could be better Review by Tara Raye
Rating

I have been practicing portraits solidly for almost a year and they all look a bit off. Jane's instruction, especially around eye formation, has helped me so much and I have watched the video repeatedly. Danger's got an awesome personality and wouldn't it be great to hang out with her? LOVE HER. I have two complaints: one, I wish it was a lot longer--I could watch her and learn from her for hours and hours. Secondly, I think some of the camera angles could be improved. There are times when Jane is demonstrating a point but her hand blocks the image she is working on. A change in camera angle would allow a better view of the instruction. I highly recommend this video, especially if you already have some knowledge about drawing portraits but need a different perspective to help you stylize your drawings.

Loved this! I just happened upon her site as she was doing a sale. This was an amazing video at any price! I highly recommend it. I learned so much, and I actually drew a girl I loved and could be proud of. She goes over everything - eyes, nose, lips, shading. You will not be disappointed! Off to buy more of her videos....

I Found This DVD So Helpful! Review by Pauline
Rating

I have been trying to draw faces for years - they always came out slightly wonky - just wrong really, and I couldn't figure out how to improve them. When I saw this DVD for sale I thought 'Well, what have I got to lose?'

And Jane - Super-Gal Jane - saved the day!

Her clear and concise step by step approach made it obvious to me where I was going wrong and how to correct it. Within weeks of purchasing this DVD, I sold my first successful mixed media face to a very happy customer :-)

I just love Ms. Davenport's personality. Her video was very entertaining along with being so informative. She was very thorough in all aspects of the techniques, and I really enjoyed following the video and even laughed at times. She is very endearing, and I definitely will be purchasing more of her lessons and following her blog!

Love this workshop! Review by Debbie
Rating

This was my first workshop with Jane and I loved it! Her teaching style is so much fun. I really like the techniques she teaches. The thing I love the most is that Jane teaches you how to make the face your own, rather that just being a carbon copy of the teacher's work. I feel more confident in creating my own faces. I can't wait to take another class!

Wonderful video Review by Nancy

This is a great supplement to the class of Jane's (and Teesha Moore) that I took with Jane. So much information, and new information that will help me get a Jane face made. I can't say enough good things about this video and Jane. Check out her classes. I know I will signing up for another one in the near future!

Well Worth The Price and Time Review by Teresa

Jane Davenport is wonderful. She covers both techniques and art supplies. I've watched this video over and over again. Love the way she discusses how to draw the lips, eyes and nose.

Even if the art style is not quite one you would use, take it anyway, because the techniques she reviews are useful to have under one's belt.

Wish I could post what I was able to draw/paint from learning her techniques, but suffice to say, the class was extremely useful.

Great fun. Review by Linn

Great video. Already viewed entirely twice and bits and pieces to review specifics. Jane is a wonderful instructor giving enough info as to why but not overwhelming. My girlies are looking sooooooo much better and I'm able to make them "mine" versus copies of hers. I want more of her instructions. Soon please.

I Love Jane!!! Review by A. Renee

This video was an awesome inspiring experience. It was a fresh take on drawing that broaden my knowledge base of drawing faces. The information was conveyed and filmed really well. Jane's personality and style were really refreshing.

Jane is great! camera work not so much. Review by Lauren

Everything the other reviews say about Jane is true! I always enjoy her videos and classes.

Camera Work:
The camera takes three positions.

Facing front --when she is talking and explaining stuff

Overhead onto the paper --her hair gets in the way a little. The giant bun and flower style was a problem that should have been identified and fixed while shooting.

from her right side onto the paper --this was most problematic. Jane is right handed which means for this shot we are looking at the back of her hand and her arm and cannot tell what she is doing with the brush. This is a MAJOR issue for me and I feel this should not happen in a professionally shot production. (especially by a company that has produced many videos). There is no way you look through that lens and think, "Oh, people will definitely be able to follow this!" If they had simply shot from the left side onto the paper it would have been great. Major fail on this! Jane's work and wonderful instruction deserve better in my opinion.

Jane Davenport is a FABulous Teacher! Review by Jo Ann

I learned to draw mermaids in her awesome "Mermaid Circus" online workshop with Teesha Moore, so I knew her Whimsical Face video would be great, too. Jane makes learning to draw so fun and easy, loved the video!

Best Portrait and Painting Class I've Taken EVER Review by Mary

I just watched this class and can't wait to get some additional supplies (order a couple stencils I never thought I would want but really can see that I need for Journaling) and start painting. If you only buy one painting Class DVD I'll bet you will love this, I am excited to get started. One of the neatest things is that we all have most of these supplies and can get started right away. Thank you Jane, can't wait till your next one.

Jane Davenport Five Stars Review by Joys

This was a great value. Jane Davenport is smart, sassy and extremely knowledgeable. In addition, she is a great communicator, making clear as she goes along the whats and wherefores of what she's teaching. Excellent value, excellent mini-workshop and fantastic instructor.

Great video! But have a suggestion... Review by Susie

I love Jane Davenport and am so glad I got this clas. My first whimsical face is amazing! I love her teaching style and her explanations. She's thorough and fun! I would love to take a class IRL!

I do wish the video had built-in markers to separate the lessons. It would be so much easier than clicking through until I find the spot I want. Other than that, this is PERFECT!

Highly Recommend Review by Fay

Have just finished my first watch of Jane's video. It's fantastic. Full of energy and inspiration, I learned more than I thought I knew about supplies and while watching the video I got the basics down for two faces of my own to put in my art journal.

Thank you Jane and interweave, fantastic value and wonderful to learn with you.

Whimsical Describes her best Review by Theresa

I've never found a class I've thought worth paying money for until I found Jayne Davenport she is funny, intelligent and REAL. You see her mistakes and how she fixes them. I was leery at first paying for a class because I have always been left feeling cheated but this class was relatively inexpensive and more so since my best friend and I shared the cost and was so pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed listening and learning from Jayne she is a treat and worth every bit of money paid for this class. I bought the stencil faces and have been playing and I started mixing my mediums while doing them using oil pastels, pencils, gelatos etc... And to see her doing what I was doing reinforced my way of looking at what I was doing them.

And last but not least listening to her talk I just love her Aussie accent. If you are thinking of buying this class do so. I know I am actually considering a few of her other ones after watching her in this one I can't stress just how REAL she is, it was like being in the room with her.

Happy Creating!!!

Excellent Review by Diana

I have had the pleasure of taking several of Jane's online classes as well as attending her first Escape Artist retreat in Bali. This DVD/Video is no different. She packs so much information in there! I showed my husband a work in progress from working along with this video he as blown away. For the price you can't beat all the info she packs in there! You will NOT be disappointed! Go for it. She will blow you away.

~The Whimsical Face Review by utilityquiltlady

Jane Davenport's video is refreshingly fun. She thoroughly explains how and when we need to draw the details of the face. Her presentation style is easy to understand and done at just the right pace to keep us glued to the screen. I'm lovin' her art style!
I've never been good at drawing faces, but now I have the confidence to make a whimsical face that looks like a face. :>}
I look forward to anything else she has to offer for us amateur artists. Thanks for the fun Jane!

Fun and skills! Review by Jane Davenport

Flying to the USA and making this video was a whole bunch of awesome! A big thank you to Jenn Mason, the Editor of Cloth Paper Scissors and the Interweave Production Crew for making my filming fun!
I hope you enjoy 'The Whimsical Face' and it inspires you to not only draw, but love what you draw!
Choose happiness,
Jane/ Danger
