About This Class

fb744beb

In this class you’ll be learning how to illustrate a stylised digital portrait.

You’ll be taking part in 3 super fun exercises to help you add personality to your faces while keeping your line work simple.  I’ll be walking you through my whole process on how I create my unique characters, and exploring different ways you can experiment with hair styles, clothes accessories and colour to make your portraits stand out.

I’ll be working in Procreate for this class but feel free to use any other drawing software!
