About This Class
This class is for anyone who has ever wanted to draw a face from a photo and have it really look like that person. While I share the basics of pencil portrait art, it is also in depth enough for the intermediate to advanced artist.
In this class you will learn:
- What tools are needed to create a pencil portrait
- How to pick a good photo for drawing
- How to get an accurate outline
- How to create smooth skin tones
- How to draw hair

I went to art school and found this video more helpful than some of my drawing classes! I appreciate your attention to detail. Great lesson! Thank you!
A really useful technique for capturing likeness. The people that I drew actually look like the people I was trying to draw!

Hi! I'm Morgan Swank and I am an accessories designer and freelance illustrator living in Richmond, VA.
I first fell in love with drawing as a little girl and have never lost my passion to create. I began developing my skills as a portrait artist and my work has continued to evolve into an emphasis in fashion illustration.
