Have you ever been interested in drawing stylized female characters, but didn’t know where to start? If so, then this is the class for you!

In this course we’ll dive into the process of sketching cute female characters with pencils. We’ll walk through materials and pencil techniques, then break down sketching the face, feature by feature, in easy to follow steps. In this class, even beginners will find that they can draw female characters with ease!

This 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 in to endless combinations.

This helped me to no end, I love you, thx
One of the better classes I have seen in Skillshare. The breakdown of the steps to create beautiful drawings was very easy to follow and very well done. Gabrielle herself is obviously very talented and teaches in a very clear and concise manner. I look forward to taking some of her other classes.
I absolutely loved this class! very easy to follow steps and straight to the point! You have inspired me to start drawing again after having not done any artwork in years! Thank you <3
