Learn how to draw a realistic portrait like a master! In this class we are going to learn how to draw step by step a realistic portrait from start to finish using graphite.
This class doesn’t require prior knowledge, because there are secrets that make realistic drawing accessible to anyone. Of course, different artists will have different results depending on their experience, but if you are a beginner this is the opportunity to take your first steps :)
In this class you will know:
By learning how to approach this theme, you will be able to draw anybody, be them a famous star or someone special in your life!
For this class you will need basically paper, graphite pencils and other drawing tools shown in the video about Materials. Also, it is better if you can print the reference image used in the course to sketch the outline.
The project consists in drawing a realistic portrait in A4 size using graphite. You are allowed to choose your own reference image if you don’t want to draw Natalie Portman for whatever reason. However, if you want to draw along with me, the reference I used will be available for you to download.
Don’t feel intimidated if you think your drawing doesn’t look like mine. The goal is to do your best! Remember I probably have much more experience than you, otherwise I wouldn’t be teaching it.
Don’t worry about the entire portrait as soon as you start. Watch each video and try to draw along before advancing to the next one. It will be easier if you take small steps everyday than running a marathon at once. You can also post your work in progress in the gallery to see how it is going and join the discussion with other artists like you.
By the way, as you finish your project, don’t forget to share it in the Community Gallery! I will be checking it whenever possible.
