About This Class


Lots of people have great ideas and designs in their head but they have a hard time putting them down on paper because they have a challenge when it comes to drawing. In this class I teach you how simple it is to create or construct a design and how to give that design dimension and depth making it look pretty realistic. 

What You Will Learn

In less than 40 minutes, you will learn how to

  • Construct and add shadows to a wallet
  • Make it look 3 dimensional with the use of the gradient tool
  • Make a realistic looking wallet using real leather swatches
  • Create a simple gold stamped logo 

What You Will Be Able To Do

This is a simple class to teach you the foundations of design, specifically accessory design. Once you have completed this class you will be able to apply these tools to create other products such as handbag designs, eyewear cases, make-up bag sketches and many more. The skill you are learning is easy rendering so you can produce realistic designs to help you in the first step to bringing your fashion ideas to life.

Anything Is Possible

Hello everyone, my name is Sharon Mapuvire and I'm a freelance fashion designer based in Harare, Zimbabwe. The Skillshare team invited me to be a part of the teaching community and I felt it would be a great platform to share my skills and talent because I have developed ways of creating designs through computer programs in easy ways applicable to anyone. Making it possible for anyone to design whatever they have in mind without ever knowing how to draw.
