Very inspiring and full with useful tips. Great class!
Love her breakdown of how to get the proportions right. I always forget to do that or it never really crosses my mind when I'm actually making the attempt to sketch something. It's easy to follow and very encouraging.
Your classes are amazing. Keep posting them. I suggest a class in how to draw people, animals, vehicles and trees for beginner urban skecthers :)
