Overview

Grow your illustration skills and confidence—while having lots of fun drawing!

Illustrator Charly Clements truly believes that drawing faces doesn’t have to be scary—but she knows it’s something a lot of people struggle with when getting started on their illustration journey. In this hour-long class—recorded using Zoom and featuring participation from the Skillshare community—Charly will walk you through three fun exercises to help you get more comfortable with drawing faces and figures.

You’ll start by brainstorming as many variations on basic facial features as you can, quickly creating a library of eyes, noses, and mouths you can pull from when you’re feeling stuck. Then, Charly will walk you through how she creates natural-looking skin tones, and pairs them with clothing colors that really make things pop. Finally, you’ll bring everything together to create a whole page of quirky characters, practicing creating different body shapes, combining different facial features, and adding a lot of personality through hairstyles and clothing.

Throughout the class, Charly will encourage you to remove any pressure to create something perfect and instead enjoy being creative and playing around with your drawings. Whether you’re just starting out or are a seasoned illustrator, you’re bound to learn something from Charly’s approach! Plus, students who participated in the live session were able to ask Charly questions, so you’ll get to learn more about her journey and process.
