About This Class


If you've ever wanted to draw crystals and gems, but thought it too hard, then this class was made just for you. To make drawing easy, I have made 9 worksheets showing how to draw various crystals and gems step by step. I will also explain lighting in detail and how to fake it. I will also show you how to use different styles and mediums to illustrate magical gemstones, from Watercolor to Ink & Watercolor and even Gouache. You will pickup tons of techniques, tips, and tricks along the way! There will also be a lesson how to paint a rainbow, clear, and black crystal. By the end of this class you will have confidence, knowledge, and inspiration to paint beautiful gems and crystals in your personal style! Let’s make some magic!

i have yet to meet a yasmina creates class that i don't love. fun, encouraging, and easy to understand, they're a wonderful tool on the art journey! in this one i especially appreciated the repeated explanations of how light interacts with transparent objects, that was immensely helpful!
This class moves FAST and I mean that in a good way. I love skill share, but in my opinion there are a few to many “first steps with -insert medium here-“ and not quite enough second or third steps. In this class she assumes you have gotten the basics of your watercolor already and jumps right into teaching some really fun stuff. I have been learning/playing with watercolor for about two years now and still got A LOT out of this class. The fast pace kept me engaged and when I wanted to paint along I just paused while I worked on steps. Loved this class, thank you!
