Overview

Are you a beginning or even seasoned sketcher that’s intimidated by the thought of adding people to your drawing?  You’ve come to the right class!  People are the life of the city, and drawing them into your urban sketches gives your drawing movement, character and energy.  This simple technique will have you drawing believable people and crowds in almost no time.  You’ll learn:

  • Why I start urban sketches by drawing people first
  • An easy, step-by-step method for building a human figure in a sketch
  • A simple way to remember correct human figure proportions
  • How to use an eye-level line as the foundation of any sketch
  • Using people to create the illusion of depth on the page
  • Using darks and color to bring the scene to life

This is a class for all skill levels.  I’ve taught this technique to everyone from professional illustrators to adults who hadn’t drawn since the age of six.  All enjoyed and learned from it, and so will you.  By the end of the class you’ll be sketching people and crowds for the pure fun of it, and ready to learn more in the next class in the series. Have fun!
