About This Class

In this class you'll learn some quick and handy sketching techniques that will propel your visual communication skills to the next level.

Humans process visual information 60,000 x faster than words. So get visual!

This class is suitable both for total beginners and more seasoned designers who want to be more efficient at doing quick sketches to communicate ideas and concepts.

I'll show you how to sketch anything and apply the 4 essential building blocks of effective visual communication: images, type, layout and colour.

In this class you'll learn:

  • Choosing the right pens
  • Sketching the basic visual elements
  • Drawing simple objects and icons
  • Easy techniques to give your type more impact
  • Effective layouts to arrange your sketches
  • How to use highlight color and shading


These skills can be applied in work and life to get more ideas out, think faster and explain concepts to others with visuals.

To learn this skill you'll choose an idea or process for our project, break it down to its 3 main steps and communicate it through simple sketching.

Join me and get better at visual communication and hand sketching.


1. Introduction: Hi, I'm Patrick. I'm use experience design here in Sydney, and I've been designing for most digital and online experience for nearly two decades. But one of the most important skills that I've learned along the way is how to quickly and effectively visualized ideas and concepts and messages using just simple pin and paper. As humans, we prices visual information about 60,000 times faster than anything else, and we also recall visuals six times better. So it's really important that you get to explain yourself visually in this class. I show you how easy it is to express your ideas, and we'll be doing this by doing some sketching some basic typography and also using layouts to structure you. Message. I believe this girl will help you think better, create more ideas, but most importantly, it will make your audience understand your messages straightaway and recall them later on. Now one of my passions has become sketching and drawing, but that wasn't always sorry because I didn't really learn how to draw until my late twenties. So I strongly believe anyone can learn how to sketch and get better at expressing themselves in a visual way. But I also have some tips and tricks for maybe the more experienced people along the way. Sorry for our project will pick a simple idea, and then we'll break it down into the three core elements. And then I'll show you how to visualize that and how to structure your message on the page will draw some objects. We do some typography, and we look at some layouts. After this class, I believe you will be able Teoh confidently. Andi, quickly express your ideas and concepts in a visual way by using some pens and paper, and it'll make you a better communicator. So I hope you come along on the journey and I look forward to seeing your class project. 2. Project Overview: Let's look at that project. So for this project will pick an idea or a concept or a message, and we'll break it down into three core elements or three steps that will explain this. The point of this project, really, is that we create a piece that you can show it to anyone and they will understand your message or your idea without you having to explain it. Now to demonstrate these, I'm going to pick something really easy. My 30 minute morning routine. I can intake this piece and put it on the fridge in my house. And then everybody will know what I'm up to for the 1st 30 minutes when I wake up in the morning. Now you could choose something that you're working on an idea or a project. It could be an experience that you've just had, like a trip, a piece of information you've learned on a podcast or in a lecture or something, or in a conversation, really, anything that you'd like to convey to someone else will go through some basic drawing exercises on. I'll show you how to simply and easily draw everyday objects that will help you tell the story, and then we look at some basic typography and how to make your words look better. And then finally, we arrange it into some practical layouts that will help tell your story much better. Final labour. Look a some colors and some shading to really bring into life and active more dimensions and structure. It should be a fun, an easy project on, and I look forward to seeing your ideas come to life. 3. Choosing pens and paper: Okay, let's look at some of the materials that we need for this course, and it's really pretty simple. We need some things and some paper, and we're right withdrawing now. The first recommendation I have for you is that you don't draw with anything else, but black felt tip pens there just look more professional. They give you better lines, and they also give you the maximum contrast on any type of paper. For example, when you and you're drawn, posted notes on things like that, then you know you want to have a chunky, thick black line that stands out when you when you put it on the wall so it doesn't really matter which brand of failed to Penn, you're going to go on shoes. The point I'm trying to make here is that you go out and get three different sized tips so that when you draw lines like these that day buildup in sickness like so so that we go from a fine to medium to a six point so that you can have this variation in your line work and I'll show you in a minute why that is really handy to have in terms off the additional colors. I have usually a car pick C three cool gray. The ideas in, please that you find a great that works well, sort of a soft cheddar next to your black. You can go. A lot of you can go darker. I tend to find this to grab, remember Happy Medium and then also will have a highlight color. I like to work with yellow because it is the universal highlight color, and it's also a great contrast to black. You could go for a light blue or more orangey or more pinky color. That's really up to you. Other than that stick, we've just generic yellow in the paper department. It gets even more simple because I would recommend you just use photocopy paper or printer paper. You know, just your standard a. D D. A. Sim paper. For a number of reasons, it's really shape. It's available anywhere you pretty much go. You'll find a printer. You can pull out some sheets of paper, and I really liked the texture because it's really smooth and those black felt pens and those coping pins. They just glide over that paper, and it's also really white. Some of the sketchbooks. I have this yellow tint to them, but these kind of papers always really, really white. So that's great for scanning and for taking pictures with your camera to apply to somewhere . Sorry. By all means. Go out and buy yourself in expensive fancy nytbook, but you'll find you'll drawer less because you're just too precious about the paper. And the book and your new wanna put really nice drawings in the photocopy paper is really great for just getting lots of ideas out really quickly experimenting with your drawing. If you don't like a rip it up, throw it out. If you do like it, you cut it up. Stick it on the wall. Scanning Dean. As I said on DSO, Yeah, don't make your life complicated. Just start drawing on copy paper until you're ready to move. Maybe into a sketchbook. Off sorts. Go get your pins. Three different sizes. Find medium and thick, a grey shader and a highlight color, and we'll get started with some drawing 4. Pen Demonstration Sketch: Now the reason we have three different size tips on your pins These that I like to start with my medium pin. And if I just wear to draw this camera and, um looking at for the next our side, um, they were goes something like that on have the lands. I'll start with my Maniam pen so that I can use my fine pin to add the details with some, like Go there. Maybe a light sensor also has in a circle of the lens some reflection there and then those little brackets. Then I use the sick pen to put a strap on. And I also used to think pain too. Maybe, you know, grounded a little bit more at some emphasis, Teoh one side off my object Silence already has a lot more expression simply because we've used different line size is not a difference of that subtle, but there perceptible, perceivable. And then I use my shader just to add that time you beat a shed, I that just adds a lot off dimension to an object. And as you can see with very little, we've made this little icon a lot more interesting. The highlight color. Generally don't use them on the objects themselves. I keep them in black and gray. But Gilo is good as a foundation and for additional stuff around it and discussing just gonna loosely Jordi start off blob around it. And then I use one of my black pains to say, Yeah, it's got a flash, and in I can turn that go over the top, but that heaven doesn't have to be exact. It's more as a effect here and you can see with very few colors to, In fact, a great and a couple of pins were making those little sketches farm or expressive, and as you get better, you can do this really quick. 5. Sketching foundations and exercises: the case. You got your pens and papers. Let's do some drawings now is that every other skill practice makes perfect and rolling is no different. So it really helps if you set up a routine where you practice and exercise your basic drawing skills now, really what? We have to be confident. That is our basic elements that we need to draw pretty much anything, which is lying's, whether they're straight as quickly squares, circles and also triangles out of these few basic visual elements, you can construct pretty much anything that you want to draw. So we want to get confident at thes shapes, a good little warmer back size before you do anything that will get the blood flowing and that will put you into the right sort of brain. Married for drawing is squiggles on Infinity Loop, so just do that for a few minutes. You could spend entire days doing that, really and build up nice patterns. The idea is to start off with shape ano quickly, a racetrack or any other fancy shape, and in just keep repainting that and just try and get into a bit of a Zen married here. So let's look at those four basic elements lines and squares and circles and triangles, so it lines are hugely important because obviously, everything is a line. Lines seem to be quite trivial, but what? I'd like it to practice this to make them consistent. Same length spacing. Um, you can make that small or big vertical horizontal quick tape here. Don't draw out of your wrist. Eurest has a fairly limited range, and you're so attentive. Draw curves more than straight lines, so when you draw lines straight, Lyons is and squares and lines lock your wrist. Draw out of your, um, your elbow movement. So especially for longer lines, stages turn out to be a lot more consistent and straighter fame with when we go across. Just a better way of drawing lines was a practice. You diagonal lines, fourth directions, and you can see you can quickly start building up some Palin's and some shapes. The next things is squares again. Squares, um, tend to be used a lot, so it's worth investing a little time of getting really good and confident at your squares . Now the first thing you shouldn't do. It's a style in the corner and then try and go around because my set a time you end up with something like that, especially when you wanna go fast. That is not the square. The best way to draw squares is to use four individual lines and also slow down just a little bit. Just, you know, make it deliberate. Don't rush into a square or into anything that you draw. Just take those extra couple of seconds. So squares or rectangles, four separate lines, and that makes it a lot more convincing. And it's okay to overlap those lives. In fact, it adds quite a bit of character tour. And that's what do you intend to see on plans and architectural drawings? A lot. Get confident with your boxes so you can draw them quickly and confidently. No difference with the circles with circles again. If you go really slow, you can probably draw fairly good circle that matches. But most of the times you'll be during this and again here. It's important. Find what's comfort for you. I tend to overlap him at the top. Um, if I was to draw another circle there because I'm left handed. So I started 12 oclock and go around, find what works for you. Big Small Draw the infamous win diagram That's a good one to practice constituents. Always handy in a meeting, you pulled that one out of your arm. That's great. So practice your circles and the triangles are relatively easy. But again, three separate lines gives you the best result in my opinion, and this one's very easy to build up some patterns here. And then when you start combining dogs, shapes and elements, you get to have interesting stuff, like little people or rectangle with the triangle on a right. And as we saw previously, a square with a circle and a little square on top makes the camera, and that's what we were doing in the next few classes. Practice those shapes, practicing whenever you can at night. Put you find a way when you watch television or pretty friend away in general, pick up a piece of paper and a pen, do some doodling, get flu and get consistent with those basic elements, and that will help you drawing and writing later on. In any case, next class we'll be looking at the project so that we can plan the things that we want to draw later on, 6. Choose your project idea: all right. Now it's time to look at the project. And what is it that we are going to visually express? So the idea of this class, really is that you take a process or an idea or a concept or a story, and you put it on paper, week, some images and some text and arrange them into a layout. You could really hand that over to anyone, and they would understand exactly what you're trying to convey without you having to explain it. That's the point, because this is also great for taking nights from lectures or podcasts, or any of those pieces of information that you consume every day to make quick visual sketches so that when you come back to them later, you literally only have to look at it for a second, and you will remember the key points. So choose an idea or concept that's really easy for this class, and you can go into the more difficult stuff later on. Now I am going to go with my ideal morning routine. This is fairly straightforward, so I can then take that concept, put it on the kitchen wall for the rest off my family here in the house to see what I want and leave me a line enjoying my morning retain so you could be choosing anything that you can working on a class project or something at work your next holiday or the trip. You've just been on something you've recent experienced, simple as you commute. Or it could be something you've learned through a conversation or a video or podcast or anything, just something that's quite recent and that you want to put down for posterity. Now, once you have your idea, think about the three key elements off that story or message or idea, and that could be the beginning, the middle. In the end, it could be that three key learnings. It could be three stages off the process. Just the three things that you need to tell that particular story a k for for my morning retain, I'm going to write down my three key moments, and that is, first of all, I have a cup of tea when I wake up, and after that, well, generally have a bowl off nice fresh muesli because I believe in breakfast being the most important meal of the day, andan as a fit part off my morning routine. I will do some writing in my journal or any other opiates paper I could get my hands on. And because I want to break this down further to make it a little bit more interesting. In my project, I'm going to go by the three by three matrix which three main points and each being breaking down by three sup winks and for the cup of tea. If I was to get that to someone to tell me what I actually want to do, it's gonna be hot. It's got a brute for five minutes and I want a dash of milk in it. My measly needs to have some votes in it. I'd like some fresh fruit, please. And also some yogurt on top and for writing. I'm generally going to write down some of my thoughts. Hopefully some ideas I have and then lastly, going to plan my day ahead. This is my project outline here. So this is what I'm going to now subsequently draw something ordinary. What? My key points are that I want Teoh find objects to draw from and how I should look at the typography which we're going to do very soon. 7. Images - Sketching everyday objects: Okay, so now that I've got you comfortable drawing basic elements the circles and squares and lying's, let's put them to good use and draw some objects and their basic shapes that we worked on their squares and circles and lines. Makeup does elements around. You just have a look in things that you can see in front of you and deconstruct him and might damage does basic shapes for my project. As I said, I was going to draw that perfect breakfast so that my morning routine, which consists of a cup of tea and a bowl of cereal and then some writing in my journal So I'm going to draw a cup, which again is very simple. So I start with a semi circle and then lips. No, um, my handle is all nice to circle. Where then outlined there. That's my handle. And then, generally speaking, sits on a source. Sir, Um, in that case, well could argue. That's a source or not, but you get the idea very simple as my my teacup. Um, the other thing about a drawer is a breakfast bowl again. Very seamer to 80 captures larger, be same cycle on and lips for the opening, But sometimes you gotta look at things or deconstruct him in this case is going to be a spoon sticking out of it. So I want to draw that first because it's actually covering the back. That's what girls like that. And then I thought of drawing a bit of kind of food. The that'll do it for a ball. I can probably do a better one when I get to my final project, but this is just a warm up into to practice how I'm gonna draw these in. The last thing I wanna draw is a night book writing. I'll draw that honor could draw that straight, but I'm actually going to draw a little bit of an angle. So again, it's just a square, four separate lines to match them up nice and slow down when you draw these things. So here's the middle well, almost the middle. And then it's got some large some pages on the Nathan and I can see from pages on the side and don't hesitate to put the object in front of you and look at it. That will definitely help you draw them better. And then because it's a masking. It's got this black cover, So the guards around it. There you go. This is when I used my different campaigns. So I've got my basic objects here. Now, let's refine them a little bit to lift them up, because that is pretty basic. But again, use your stick a pin at some dimension outline. Maybe just outside. Or maybe I just actually go around here, Um, and with the teacup, I just to me that I can fix that up, maybe a little bit, so as well and just experiment which lines he would emphasize and which one you want to leave your medium. And maybe in this one I'm actually gonna pretend that it has a pattern on it. Just add a bit more visual interest to it. The cup of tea as well, I said, has wanted to make it steaming hot. So I'm using lines as effects to embellish things on the night book. I could put thumb Thank were thing. And just with a little bit of additional line work and I might face a lot more interesting , you're gonna put some soup. Thylacine. Lovely. The last set when you do your objects institute at your Schrader to it to give it to Dimension and the thing with Scheiding. There is a pretty simple trick that moment, things a lot easier, but also a lot better, and that he's imagine that the light source is in the top left, which means that the left side is always the lighter site in the right side, too Dark aside. Hence I've drawn those thick outlines predominately on the right side. So in terms of shadow that I cup, what happened? We shut her there and then the shadow around. I am the the Bests and I used these brush tips because it lets me go sick and then thin. I'm if that's too advanced from the out in Just use month. Um, strength doesn't really matter, and that's the beauty about it. We were keeping it rough for keeping it simple, so it doesn't have to be all that perfect on again at some shed are there in the book from Sugar on the Table and then maybe in the center line, has a bit of shadowing. Their, um, despairing has a bit of shelter and also lied. The east. Some teen there So I'm just going to Drillbit tea in my treetop. Maybe we should handle and you can see what I'm getting at here is used to basic shapes to draw dollars objects around you in a really simple but effective way. And there is, ah, a lot of character than you actually add by not drawing a lot just by simple representation and you'll find your own style. When you do that, practice that look at objects around you. Go online, find icons that you want to redraw. If you're struggling with, you know, visualizing a concept that maybe be more abstract, like process or speed, then find what other people have done and then do your own version off that in the next class, the next lesson will be looking at some typography, and they will move on to putting it all together for our final project. 8. Type - 4 ways to make words look better: Okay, let's talk quickly about words and typography and how to put dies under page most efficiently in the context off this project in in context, off sketch noting and visual. No tanking and expressing ideas quite quickly. Okay, let's look for ways to improve. You're writing really quickly. Number one right in up a case. It just looks a little bit better than lower case it also, it prevents you from falling into your own handwriting too much, and it's more even and easier to plan your spacing off your words. Number two. He's adding some styling indican duties by writing where its in bold, which simply makes over it a couple of times, or use different sicknesses off your pains to make bit of an impact. The other one is the sort of fake Siri's from Just add a bit of visual interest to it. Look up some sort of typefaces for some inspiration, Dear said. One is you do use the handwriting ever contrast the cursive writing and the other one. He's what I call double. For that, you need to leave a bit more room so that you can then basically just add double outlines to your down strikes and just get again. Just a little bit of visual variation in your words. The 3rd 1 he's, um, work with scale. And that's just a basic typographic sense, which means make sure your titles or keywords are bigger, then supporting works or in fire. And then, as you go down the page, decrease the scale just or that keywords stand out. And it's easy to skin the important to the not so important words on your page. And lastly, the 4th 1 He's adding some effects to your words, and it's just really I'm working with devices. Um, okay, adding errors. Two words boxes, um, appointive or speech bubble left, I thought. Bubbles. Um, those sorts of devices starbursts. There's tons of inspiration there on Pinterest as well to see what other people are doing, but by simply adding, you know your basic devices around keywords. You can see that you can make them the most important part off the page quite quickly, and then think in youth Conectiv, a rose dotted lines those sorts of thinks to make your words flow a bit better. So uppercase styling, record scale. Add some effects to the words devices, and that's really all you need 9. Layout - arranging your message: Okay, We nearly there nearly ready to get started on our final masterpiece. And if you followed along so far, you should already be quite ready before we that I move on to the final piece. We have to think about lay out. How are we going to put this on the page? And here? Awesome. Some general tips on what kind of layout you short following when you do those tops and sketches. Um, so first, I'd like t just talk a little bit about the general float on a page. So when we come to a website or we look at the page or a magazine page, maybe not so much a book, but those types of layouts, we tend to start at the top left to look for an inter pointing, going, you know what it is. And then I tends to sort of move over to the right, the kind of going scan that and then eventually really end up here at the bottom, right, as a little confirmation things. And if you go out and look at some websites that you browse today, pay attention to that and you'll find out quite often we have the main information here with some supporting facts here and then down here will be sign up or by now type of thing . And this space here is kind of the debt sign where we don't really want to put too much important stuff because we tend to ignore it. Another really common or easy way to do things. Ease the circle, especially if you have a circular process. Andi idea, really is that you have. You know, you're three points and die guard in a merry go round, and that helps the audience to follow that it's in a nice floy. They can go around and come back to the beginning, so the circle of floor is a great layout, and then you can also put your title in the middle. That's is your main idea. And then the three supporting facts. And, you know, looking at this little example here, which he's a circular process, we have our customer in the middle, and then we have the three points. Think make and test. Another really handy layout used what's called a hub and spoke. And as you can imagine, this is if you have a central idea in the middle, and then you have a number off concepts that are kind of branching off it. None of them are more important in the other, and they're not even really connected to each other either. But they sort of huddle around the central idea. So that happened. Spike is a good little layout that that you can use. But the idea is that you have your the main idea here, and we're gonna one. We doing this true, that's important. And then three and four, you get the idea. So that's your husband Spike layout, which is a good one. When he comes to more lenient flows of an idea, there is a few options that we can use. Actually, our monitors user posted for these, So a linear flies. As I said, you can simply do the timeline. You have one to for etcetera. So you go from left to right. Um, another layout would be Horizon's. Let's say if you wanted to know your page, Gladys, Dad, and you can go one. And here is something on to and you just go down the page. Another good one for linear is if you don't really know where it starts and where it finishes, you start in the top left to go one and hear some stuff, and then you get like a ah new idea here, some stuff and then three. I'm basically just meander down the patch and have drawn these lines because they're sort of these divisions where you can separate the ideas and maybe it stopped, said three. And maybe it stops at five, depending on you know, if you're listening to a podcast or something and you want to take some notes, you know you're going to have three points in your layout. So obviously, then you would kind of go, you know, almost like drawing a invisible triangle way ago. Here's the main idea is your second idea, and here's your third idea. But this helps the you are the reader to fly now. I didn't say you don't use the dead space, but if you only have three ideas on a patch, you're safe to use that as well. So these are some basically add options that should cover it a circular flow hub and spoke central idea things around it. You are a linear flow where you either got a timeline from left to right or from top to bottom, or you divide the page into three sort of sections like that, and that should give you some ideas on how you want to organize your project, depending on what kind of prices or idea D's and let's get started on draw our file project . 10. Sketching my "30 minute morning routine": okay. We've looked at drawing objects. We looked at typography options, and we looked at some layouts that you can use to structure your message better. And now it's time where we bring it all together into our final piece. Let's get started. Okay, Before we start drawing things on paper, take a minute to plan out your page. I think about the layout, which structure you want to do, and in my case, I've decided to go it for a linear flow, have from heading at the top and then go from left to right with my three steps. But there's also got a vertical flow to wind, so it's quite easy to go from top to bottom going. I kept anything of your own routine, made up of the three steps that add another that court. So that works for me. Now I've got a little guide and that I can follow you. So now I need to sort of playing out the page a little bit, you know, from edge Teoh Edge. It goes about here and enough got from top to bottom. I go from here today, so now I've got sort of my area and I'm going to work in three columns, so I'm going to go. Okay. 123 So I start in the middle. That makes it a little bit easier for me to then go left and right. And I need to leave some room for my heading at the top. So I'll start not quite halfway, but sort of rant here. And I'll start with my first object, which he's my bow. - That's my three objects. Nicely spaced out. The next thing I'll do it right, The titles straight on anything. And I'll start. We this one. Cool. All right, so I can know. Had a little bit more detail to this. I've got my pen in my hand. Might as well that bit of there. You're right. Um, using a fine pin. It's hard to it That doesn't really need anything. But you know what? Going to give this a bit of a pattern with some dots. Yeah, that'll do it. Call my three basic elements. I hear simple as that. And now I need to write to decide points. I use my medium pin for that. I start again in the middle. Are just gonna go actually want to leave a little bit of room between here and there because I'm thinking of maybe putting a box around those three objects. Um, three sub points I am. So I'll start with writing way, and I'm doing this quite loosely. As you can see now. I'm going to draw a little icons there, too, with my fine pain to add contrasts. Ideas is just went to Mama Dow here, just in case there's confusion. We actually going to bring my tea back for five minutes and then I'll add a little bit of milk to it from a tiny milk job. It's not sure how that actually should be drawn. Maybe it's, um, it's in their sort of in a pile of hurts, um, apple for fruit. It's kind of sometimes you just go for the cliche icon that you can think off, because again, the point is to explain something really easy to people. W I get, um, thoughts. Best to use the thought bubbles Ideas Mile. That's only really one way to do that, and that he's the infamous light bulb. And then we have a plan which often ends up to be a to do list nice. I've got to Michael's happening there. Great. Now I need Thio added the title. Um, that one is going to be with my stickpin. I'm actually thinking I might put it into, like, a banner of thoughts, so I might leave some room there on and try and write it up up here. Um, sorry. I'm going to go from here to there, live some room for maybe here that this is all a little bit of guesswork. Um, and sometimes you get it wrong, and then you have to fix it or redo it. That's up to you. But if you have enough character on the page, Deng really matter. Some of the other elements will carry your mistakes. It is a little bit tight around here, but I'll see how I'm going to get away with it. Well, let's do that now. So I gotta flip the page for that, because it's probably easier, but I won't go really tight there. That was okay. Just get away with it and then draw the box there and there. Okay, That's like a um and then I just gonna and trouble if monkey triangles to it at some happiness and then I actually also sort out. Maybe because this is the morning I could just at a simple cloud and cento it very guy. It could be longer. Pretty simple stuff. Um, no, I've run a bit out of space to shore everything on this came rabbit. Let's just keep going for these ones. I also think it could benefit with some separate us. So I'm going to simply draw a books around there. Um, a point. I that just helped structure the page a little bit better. And this is the sort of stuff you just want to experiment with and and keep drawing. And then you'll find your own visual language over time on how you put things on paper. And now I can finalized its with my time in decadas. Um, you can see him sort of moving between pins just to get that variation in there. And then here, This is going to be, uh, 65 minutes, and then well, that was probably going to be more like, um Well, that's just I make that 15 minutes. Um and then this one will be five minutes. I'm quitting, fasted, eating, And that will leave me with 10 minutes off writing. Because here is where I spent most time thinking about what I'm going to write. I forgot my little he'd indicated on do like my tea hot on DNA. Now I'm going Teoh at some color and shading to it to bring this all together a bit better . Sigh How? Start. Leave two shadows on my objects. Been over Grand Chedid. And don't forget to put some tea in there. Um, Enbrel immediately again. Six. Or enough on the table. There, spoon. Been of color there. That's it. And then this one we run and justice into line. All right, So sunshine of the that quickly go over that great with Cho picks that can lay them. If you wanted to be a bit darker to Ben as got the shadow as well. And then I got maybe one shot out there like that in a short on the cloud. No good. Even at some Shaddai day, cool for that starts to stand out of the boy. I'm probably going to give these one more wolf, and this is when you can get a bit playful and get carried away with it. So importantly, don't go too far because otherwise you will ruin your drawing. That has happened many times. I have speed things up a bit here again. Atom shadow. It doesn't have to be accurate. It's just about so there going to be the character to be to dip through it. Finally, I wanna we'll be talking about 30 minutes here and then we go into ads. Yeah, to everything. And OK, so most importantly, this is about my 30 minute routine. Here we go with someone like that stand out and then we going. Teoh highlights two key message. My three ingredients really quickly and loosely so I think, in writing. And then we'll also highlight the time, Um, five minutes and 10 minutes. That's just really roughly just to indicate that I did so. I usually don't put color on objects, but sometimes it's just nice to bring it together, with some highlights sprinkled in in the light bulb building next to the yellow and maybe some shadows and these ones as well, and Chris looks better. I can't help myself, but adding another line at the bottom there, our final piece, or nearly the son done our final pits by a 30 minute morning routine. I hope you enjoyed that high. You learned enough to go along with the same one or with your own one, and I look forward to seeing it. 11. How to use this skill: that was indeed done and well done. I hope you've enjoyed my skill share class, and you've learned a few things along the way. So where to go from here? But obviously, as with every skill, practice, practice, practice I really urge you to take this on and used is Aziz much as you can, and you don't have to make big pieces, you can just scribble things down on a post it night. One image, one word as little reminders. Take more visual nights when you hear or re things summarize learnings, ideas, conversations. Really, it's open in that it's such a useful skill toe have, and it's so much fun. The better you get at it, the more you will do it. I hope I see you in one of my upcoming skill share classes that will go into more depth of any of those aspects of looked at today, but also on how to take sketching, furthering their business and user experience sitting. I really enjoy doing this, and I hope to see you seen again
