About This Class

If you wanna learn how to draw people in an urban sketching style, you'd come to the right place.
In this class I will teach you how to draw simple lively sketches of people and crowds.

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 why i use them - before going into the actual lessons of how you draw people. We will cover the most important topics such as figure proportions, eye-line, perspective and last but not at least - how to draw a final sketch completed with people and background.
