About This Class

1894e33f

This class is only meant as a little Christmas bonus for everyone who likes my urban sketching style. 
In this class I will teach you how to draw a hot cup of chocolate, with some cozy Christmas elements surrounding it. 

You only need 3 things to get started:

  • Some thick paper of your own choice
  • A black pen with waterproof ink
  • And some watercolor of your own choice

We will begin the class by talking about the materials I use, and how the amount of details needed in a sketch changes accordingly with the distance. When we draw things close to us, we need details to get impressed! When things are further away, we don't need the same amount of details to trick our minds in to think that the piece is full of... well EVERYTHING.  

Then I dive into the actual lessons of how you draw the different Christmas elements, before we start the final sketch.

Transcripts

1. Introduction: Christmas is all about being cozy and it's about warm colors. And in my case, I like to draw. My name is Lancet foss. I'm an actor and an illustrator based in Denmark. In this class, I will teach you how to draw a wonderful hot Christmas chalk that cup, some red Kristen's berries, a Christmas cookie, came to gain a cinnamon stick, some pine branches and orange and a star hence. So let's combine the elements and make the most wonderful Christmas drone you've ever seen. Or at least the drawing. 2. Details vs. Distance: Alright, details versus distance. Whereas when we talk about distance, we usually talk about perspective. But in this case we talk about the details. You see when things are further away, you don't need as much details as if they are close to you. And this case we are drawing something that is very close to us, so therefore, we need a lot more details than otherwise. And that's why I would still call it urban sketching. If I need to draw people and buildings, I can probably draw the whole scenery in about ten minutes or so. And in this case, withdrawn something that is random in front of us with drawing a cup of hot chocolate and some Christmas the things around it. And since it's ran in front of us, we need to pay attention to the details. We need to use some shadings, We need to color it it, and that's what makes the drawing stand out. And tell me tell me. 3. The Eight Christmas Elements: In this lesson, I'm going to teach you how to draw the eight elements we need to use the final sketch. The eight elements are a cup, some red Christmas berries, a Christmas cookie, candid gain, a cinnamon stick, some pine branches, an orange, and a star ends. Let's start. Alright, so in this class we need to learn how to draw a different elements. And the first element we need to draw is a cup. And a cup is quite simple to draw. First need to draw an oval. That and at the bottom, we draw curve that follows the bottom of the oval, just like that. And then we'll connect on this side. But mind the gap right there in a draw around the oval like that. And connected on the other side. That's a cut. If you want to hope come up, then you might want to draw this, which is basically just two circles. That's a cup. The next thing we need to learn how to draw is some red Christmas berries. And the way I draw them is basically just a circle with a little dot on it. So that will look pretty much like that. Crawl another one right here with a little dot there and maybe one behind. Just like that. The next thing we need to learn how to draw is the Christmas cookie. And the way I draw it is basically just a circle like that. And to give it some thickness, I draw a line on the right side. And then some small dots, which is the chocolate. And if you want to draw a Christmas cookie laying down and you just make an oval thens dead, just like that, gave it some thickness and draw some dots. The next thing we want to learn how to draw is kinda came. That is quite simple. And just draw this shape. Naval little round circle down here and draw a line. And we could go on and we could draw one pointing the other way. Just like that. And to make it look like a candy cane, I'm drawing some lines, curved lines just like that. And that's ready to color in. I will do the same on the other one. Just like that. All right, the next thing I'm going to draw it tricky, it's a cinnamon stick. To draw cinnamon state, we will need to first draw this kind of shape, just like then, and then doubled the line. So I'm going to draw this. Then I need to draw three straight lines. So the first one right here, the next one right here, and the third one, p. Now I'm connecting the lines just like that. And this one go in behind. And that's a cinnamon state. You want to draw it pointing the other way. It would look something like this. Making the same shape. Once again, just like that. And let's draw the high and the other one, which is like that. Yeah, that will do. The next thing we need to draw is some pine branches. First thing I'm gonna do is draw two straight lines here fairly close to each other. Just like that. Next thing I'm gonna do is basically just making some shapes here. Maybe in the other direction. Just like they're going in behind. So it's basically just some tiny lease. It doesn't have to be perfect. Should be fairly quick to draw. Just like that. And that is a palm branch. The next thing is an orange. And if you want to draw an orange, it's basically just like a circle. Just like that. Some tiny dots on it painted orange and eigen our image. But if you want to draw it in a way that's more appealing to the eye. I would cut in half and then draw it. So now it will look something like this. I'll start off with an oval, just like that. And then now withdraw a tiny line right here. And as we come down here, I will make the gap larger. Draw it something like that. And now comes the hard part, because now we need to draw some triangular shapes with some round corners. So that would the middle off, it would be around here. So I would draw a line like that into the middle, an app. And then I would follow this line here. Make it triangular shape is like that. Then I will do all the way around like that. And the last thing we need to draw is a star means. And that is quite difficult. So I'm going to enlarge it a bit. First. First we draw a little circle. This will be the center of the star. And then I would draw this shape just like that. And the same down under here. And on this side. And on this side. Just like that. Now I just need to draw the last for connecting the lines. Just like that. And the last thing we need to do is to draw some oval shapes in here, just like that. Same here. The same all the way around. And that is the eight elements we need to learn how to draw. 4. The Final Sketch: Alright, the final urban sketch, K. So the first thing I'm going to draw this, a rat in the center of the drawing. I'm going to start off with an oval like that. And I'm drawing down here just like that. And the same, and yet the same slag then. And I'm drawing this tiny nine following the oval shape. And then I'm gonna draw down here. Same and yet the site. But I'm going to stop here because I want some red berries. Want one right here. And I want one school lightly behind. So this tag that I'm going to put two dots. So I'm gonna step back. And I'm going to draw the cup down here. And I'm going to follow current right here and follow the same curve. At the bottom. I ban and one molar. And we're gonna draw this one here like that. And one more. Pretty much like an ear. And the last one like that. This sign, I'm going to draw a cinnamon stick. So I'm starting off with a shape like this. I'm kind of the line. And then I'm going to draw a line behind. The same with this one. And with the last one right there. And I am going to draw one more of them. Is NYC that dock with the line again. Draw it. And this one. Same with this. And with that. And the other side, I'm going to draw a cookie. Or Then I'm going to draw stories. And to do that, I'm going to draw a little circle. And then I'm going to draw this, say the same on the other side. Here, here, there, there and there. And then I'm going to draw a small oval inside of them like that. And I'm going to draw some thickness to it. So much like that, just on one side like that. And then we're going to draw cookie. And I'm trying to do it as round as possible. So I'm gonna start around a year and we're going to make it current. Pay get circa. Yeah. There. Okay. Now I am going to make some thickness to it. Down here. Here. Just like that. I'm going to draw some shock with pieces. Just like that. Now I'm about to draw the orange, but instead of just Making a circle, I will like to cut the orange and pass and draw the inside of it. I think that's more interesting and appealing to the eyes. So I'm gonna draw a circle on this, on this side here. Like that. Just behind right here as well. And I'm going to draw an outline here. But as we move towards the bottom of it, will make it figure. Just nine bat. To make this orange Luke realistic, withdraw some triangles with soft edges like that. I'm just going to continue that all the way around. And a final one going in behind here. Dope there. That's it. And I'm gonna make some dots on it. It's just small ones. Yep. That's good. And I'm going to draw the red Christmas Barry right here. Just like that, with a little dot on it. Right now I'm going to draw two candy canes. The first one rather big, this side, just like that. And the other one a little bit smaller, pointing to on the other side. Just like that. And then this, I'm gonna make some curvy lines which helps selling the idea that this is around cane. Display. That this same and beyond the one. Just like that. Now I'm going to draw two types of pine branches, just for some variation. The first one, I'm going to draw this double line to spike that. Then I'm going to draw this little pine cone up here. And then I'm going to draw the leaks. Kind of draw one right here. And let k be a one right there. Maybe one more on this side. Just like that. Maybe I'm going to change direction here. May be on the side, just like that. A B side thing going be outlined. The slag that are ongoing and BI player maybe want to be here. Yeah. That is one type of a pine branch. The other one is quite easy to draw. We've got to do a double line once again, just like that. And then I'm just doing that. And the same on the other side. I'm not thing in too much about it. I'm just doing it. Then. And maybe a final little red Christmas pairing a year. Now I only need one thing, and that is some odd chocolate variety here. And that's the sketch. 5. Adding Shadows: Hatching: Mao's liked drawing some shadows. And to do that, I'm going to use a technique called hashing, which means that we decide on which side the light is coming from and then withdraw the shadows on the other side. So for this particular base, like the shadow to be on the left side, which means that we have the Sun and the right side. So this is some symbol hatching. And we're gonna do the same thing as this right here on the left side. And I will kind of do the same thing on the right down here. But a bit darker. Yeah, just like that. Then I'm going to draw it a shadow inside here, the same under this one. Slack that maybe a little bit on. The orange berries spec, that bit kinky. And maybe some file lunch or at a year and a year on the left side. And that's the final sketch. 6. Coloring: Let's color in this sketch. I'm going to start with, I'm going to leave some white space on these berries. So yes, lag there. Now I'm going to use a brown color in the same mistakes. Again, that even some white space here and there. And now it's time for the cookie. And again, I'm going to leave some white space on the top. Just highlighted a bit. Just like that. Slightly darker color. And a little bit of whitespace. Once my red now it's time. Now it's time for the orange. And I'm quite clear for Phil in colors on the outside. And then I'm leaving some whitespace right there. And the inside. I'm going to paint them all rights as well. And the rest, I'm gonna leave that wide. Omega1. Pick colors here a little bit stronger by applying some new color. Minimal applies some yellow here. Just let it blend in with the orange. Just making it a bit lighter. Skin color in the leaves. Quite carefully. Like that. Still even some whitespace hearing there doesn't have to be too perfect. But we don't want to color outside of the paintings. The sketch. I'm happy with that. Now I'm going to change the green just slightly. And pain in the other branches on this side. So this screen is to slightly lighter. And the color. Yeah, I'm happy with that. Alright, now it's time for the candy canes gonna draw this one green. And I want this one to be white. Green, white. Rent white, green. Why red? White, green. Light red, light cream. Just like damn. Why bring white grant? That. Green light. Red. Green white ramp. That's it. And I'm yeah, the sign wanted to be read out here. Why? Red? Red. Red. Red. And red on the bottom. Just like that. Lance coloring the chocolate. And we're gonna remedy some whitespace there. That's going to make a little the shadow from the cookie. There. Maybe a platinum, where I am, I want you back. Now I'm going to paint in the cut. I dislike that. Leaving some whitespace on the top may be so wide space over here, that area. And there is just gonna pay in that blue. And the rest of fitness, Wow. Just like that. Now we're pretty much done. And just want to make a last final touch on it, which is to use some splattered facts on just flavoring and brash. And as we slide that, using colors that deaf already used on this, just like that. And then as I Skanska hot Christmas chalk, that 7.
