Welcome fellow artist, this class is for you! Today, I invite you to find a more powerful connection with your drawing by allowing your feelings and your personality to guide you through your art. You will be able to work on your drawing skills (control, technique, consistency and confidence) while stimulating your imagination to add your own style to your illustrations.

Facial proportions and easy guidelines to follow before start drawing with ink;
How to choose the right reference photos for you: interesting lighting, textures and facial expressions;
Stippling and hatching to create skin textures – you are welcome to use your own techniques if you like!
How to create contrast and depth in your drawing to reach the aesthetics you like;
Draw with a realistic approach combined with a creative and more abstract perspective that allows you to explore your creativity and imagination;
Get out of your comfort zone to create abstract textures with ink;

By creating a portrait drawing you will discover the infinite possibilities offered by ink pens. You will dive into different inking practices, improve your overall ink work, and push out of your comfort zone to be able to express yourself fully!
