About This Class

Hello everyone,

Whether I make drawings for clients, or for personal projects I always try to make my work efficient and the final result a great looking drawing. How do I do it? With lots and lots of practice.

In this 50-minute class, you'll go behind-the-scenes as I share my process of drawing exercises. From introducing you to 3 basic principles of drawing to hand postures and finally the actual drawing, I’ll provide you with helpful tips for better understanding of shapes and lines. All for one purpose – to get better at your craft of line making.

Simple, yet very helpful for beginners. I have not drawn traditionally in some time and wanted this class to motivate me to keep drawing (digitally). The explanations were great, the topics and examples- amazing and I took a couple suggestions from the video to improve my art. Thank you! Would recommend.
excellent class i learnt how to hold my pencil to draw well, i also learnt to look for the basic shapes in every picture. My first exercises look really good, I am so excited.
