About This Class

In this class i  will teach the basics of sketching "characters", or simplified portraits of kids using photos as inspiration for pose, style and expression.

Beginners & Intermediate artists will learn a lot but may need lots of practice. Experienced artists may pick up a few bits, or at the very least see how another artist works : )

Lessons will include tips on:

- choosing a good source photo for inspiration

- making super-quick gesture drawings to establish the basic form and structure of your figure

- simplifying facial features to stylize the face

- cleaning up your gesture drawing to make a finalized sketch

- adding loose watercolor to your illustration,  and even splashes & spatter to create a bit of life and flair
