LESSON 1: GET LOOSE AND SKETCH
First you'll meet your muse, and identify the lines and rhythm in your reference photo. Next, you'll sketch out the main shapes, and loosen your hand with various exercises, including blind contour sketches. Finally, you'll create a blueprint for the rest of your portrait by picking and choosing your favorite lines and shapes from your various sketches.
Lesson length: ~32m
LESSON 2: REFINE YOUR LINES
Sophie will teach you how to refine your sketch using expressive, "living" lines. You'll tighten up your loose and scribbly sketches while looking at harmony and rhythm in your overall composition. By lesson's end, you'll have a clean line drawing ready for color!
Lesson length: ~39m
LESSON 3: ADD COLOR
Sophie will teach you how to create a harmonious color pallet and a fun way to apply color, by starting blocky and blurry and eventually tightening up. You'll also learn the importance of looseness and staying playful when applying color – and how to know when to stop.
Lesson length: ~65m
LESSON 4: FINISH LINE
Sophie will teach you various ways to elevate your final piece with fun textures, overlayed blend modes and color tweaks. You'll also learn how to thoughtfully let chance play a part when adjusting effects and overlays.
Lesson length: ~19m
