About This Class

Hi, Marouane here,

In this class, you will learn how to sketch a cool looking wood texture using a pen, paper and 3 markers.

We are going to start by creating a wooden cube. You will learn about lighting, marker shading and layering to get the colors right and highlighting.

After that, we are going to sketch the first letter of your name and make it look like it's made out of wood! 

Thank you for checking out my class, I hope to see you inside.

Let's get sketching!
