Do I need to be good at drawing to join?

This course is meant for people who have little drawing experience.  If you are completely new to drawing I would recommend you start with my sketchbook course. 

we all love our pets

And wouldn't it be great to use the pictures on your phone as references? 

In this course I will talk you though what a good reference picture looks like, how to set up your sketch, how we use alcohol markers combined with colour pencils and how we add details to our final artwork.

Letting go of perfectionism

The technique that I use is great for those of us who are secret perfectionists. the underpainting in marker allows for a little messy-ness and then we use colour pencils to add realism to our drawings.

we start with quick sketches and I invite you to draw along from the start. 


My goal is to get you comfortable with drawing as the more you draw, the easier it gets.

You can also share your artwork in the discussion group where all course participants can see it. (This may sound scary but it's a great step towards sharing your artwork with the world eventually if that's something you want to do.)
