Being an Illustrator/Comic Artist for almost a year means I constantly have to learn new techniques related to drawing.
And I joined Skillshare to learn more tips, faster. If you’ve been following me for some time, you’ll know how much I rave about Skillshare.
I live in India and I’m a home bird. I never leave the apartment unless I have to take my dogs for a walk. I stay in an area surrounded by trees and a lake which means I never actually meet people.
I even do my grocery shopping online.
Skillshare enabled me to learn whatever my heart craved for without even leaving my desk.
In case you don’t know, Skillshare is an online learning community, where Creators can share classes based on practically anything (drawing, cooking, photography, baking, etc.) and people can watch these classes to improve their skills.
This is a course I really enjoyed because I love sketching girls/women in general.
Gabrielle teaches you how to sketch cute female characters with pencils. She’ll walk you through the materials and pencil techniques she uses before she breaks it all down by sketching the face, feature by feature, in easy to follow steps. This is a class for artists of any level.
What I love most of all is her course is full of worksheets, guides, tutorials, tips, and references to help prepare you for drawing female characters — with loads of video demonstrations to help you solidify the information, while watching it in action!
By the end of this class, you will know how to draw a variety of female eyes, noses, mouths, and hair styles that you can then work into endless combinations.
In this class, Camilla teaches you how to combine styles and techniques from two art world genres: manga and pop surrealism.
She will show you all the tools she uses of course and teach you the difference between hard lead and soft lead pencils. She begins with simple shapes that eventually becomes the outline of the drawing.
And then she goes to show you step-by-step instructions on how you can flesh out the drawing.
