About This Class

In this class you will learn how to do a simple, minimal sketch of a person from a photo reference, using pencil and marker. The goal is to achieve a minimal and expressive sketch, rather than a realistic and perfect copy of the photo. When I sketch a person, I prefer to do a quirky illustration with a personality instead of an exact replica. Join me to discover how easy it is to draw your own awesome sketch!
