  • Biography

    Hello! My name is Braden Messer, and I am a charcoal artist. I teach a unique charcoal application technique that I call “The 3 Layered Method.” I do not have a formal art education, but I did take an art class in high school once. My charcoal drawing method is a lazy and simple approach for achieving detailed artwork. I have helped thousands of artists conquer the charcoal medium by leveling up their drawing skills.

    What you'll learn

    Hey guys,

    In this class, I will be taking you through my entire drawing process as we draw a realistic Beagle. I use an approach called the 3 layered method that I have developed over many years of drawing.

    I will be speaking to everything that I do in this class but if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask. I am here to answer any and all questions that you might have in order to help you develop into the best artist you can be.

    The class has been fragmented into (13) digestible lessons. For the best results be sure you use the same materials that I use in the video and don't forget to post your project when you finish! :)
