About This Class

Welcome to my class! I hope you're ready to sketch :) 

Sketching is a big part of my life as an artist. It's the one thing i would recommend to anyone willing to improve their drawing skills : practice sketching various subjects, as often as you can! You can create sketches in preparation for complex and detailed artworks, or simply to have fun. Whether you create digital or traditional drawings, if you want to improve your skills this class is for you!

Level : Beginner

Supplies : your usual sketching materials, digital or traditional

What you'll learn

  • my trick to easily draw better proportions
  • how to create sketches in around 10 minutes
  • my personal sketching process, with live drawing examples for a portrait, an animal, a landscape and a still life object

Remember : sketching isn't about creating a "perfect" drawing!! In fact, the less time you spend on each sketch, the better! It's about training your eyes to see the proportions, and training your hand to recreate them :) 

Happy Sketching!

Short but sweet-simplifies the drawing process
Incredibly helpful short and sweet!
