In this intermediate Drawing class, 5 lessons will cover sketchbook drawings to follow along and complete, using photos from Paint My Photo (so an free account there is needed.)
Spplies are the same as Drawing 101 except the addition of 2 lessons in Conte Sketching Pencils (black and sanguine). The class is taught assuming students know how to transfer their drawing to their sketchbook, though some tips are provided; basic highlights and shadows as taught in the prerequisite course.
What does “intermediate” mean here? The class is taught with paper and pens – no stamps, no sketches, no net! That doesn’t mean it’s going to be terribly difficult, but it does mean that at least a basic facility with Copic markers is a must. Some experience with making marker strokes, blending, and flicking is needed; as well as the willingness to put a lot of color on the paper. Scenes are not for the timid who are hoarding ink in their pens. *smile*
This class is appropriate for artists working in any genre – cardmaking, fine art, animé, etc. Lessons are taught on a small paper – each is 4-1/4″ x 5.5″ but can be adapted to a larger size as desired – just remember if you double the size of the paper, you may need to double the size of marker strokes.
