Faces are so fun to draw and they’re an awesome way to express your creativity.
In this class we’ll be drawing female characters and exploring the different angles of the head.
We’ll talk about proportions, line quality, and how to draw each feature of the face, step by step.
Then we’ll talk about how we can bring our characters to life through the use of different expressions, hairstyles, and accessories.
Next, I’ll share my personal process for drawing female characters in front view, three-quarter view, side view, and more. This class includes over 20 character demonstrations!
When you join the class, you’ll get access to tons of class worksheets and hundreds of reference photos that you can use in your drawings.

HOW I BEGAN TEACHING
Ever since I was a little kid I would always have a sketchbook in hand- drawing everything from little fashion girls, to my cat, to celebrities...anything and everything! I had a passion for art and I was always encouraged by others to keep practicing. So I did!
Over the past decade, I've dedicated myself to serious study, attending more workshops and classes than I can count. I’ve studied with professionals, riffled through countless art books, studied the masters, and I've learned from my mistakes and successes through practice. And with all this study and practice, I’ve developed my skills and I’ve grown as an artist.
But I still remember how it felt in the beginning...
Struggling with my art, I remember telling my mom, "When I get this, I'm going to teach everyone how to do it!" The struggle was real! I would get so frustrated with myself in my art because I just couldn’t figure out how to make things look real, how to shade, how to blend, which colors to use where, how to paint someone’s likeness, etc! Because of this, I always knew I wanted to teach one day to help others through that struggle too.
I didn't get the opportunity to until a few years ago when I was approached by someone at Skillshare to make an art class. I was hesitant at first, but I gave it a shot. Fourteen classes later, you may be able to tell I have a new passion!
I absolutely love teaching. My approach to teaching is: there are no secret tricks that I will hide from you! If there is something that I have felt has pushed me forward in my art, then you can be sure it will be shared in class and explained to the best of my ability.
In my classes, I try to get into the mind of the beginner. I try to remember how I felt when I was first starting out and all the struggles that came along with learning new ideas. From there, I build upon the basics, so as a more intermediate or advanced artist, you should still feel right at home in class.
I believe beauty is found in simplicity, so often I try to share basic fundamentals and principles that I believe help us in making more beautiful art.
The exciting thing is, I know I'll never be finished learning. So there's so much more to come. I’m so excited to learn more about art! And when I do, you can be sure I’ll share what I learn with you on Skillshare and Gumroad! :)
Hoping to see you in class!
