:star: $19- Start Drawing: Techniques for Pencil Portraits :star:

Seven years ago when I was struggling to learn portraiture, I remember saying to my mom, "When I "get" this, I'm going to teach everyone how to do it!"  So here we are, seven years later and I'm ready to share the knowledge I've discovered!

After years of studying with professional portrait artists, by reading tons of books on how to draw the face, and by studying the works of master artists such as Sargent, Bouguereau, and Vanderpoel, I'm ready to share the most helpful information I've learned with you all!


Anthony Hopkins by gabbyd70 Drawing WIP by gabbyd70 Professor Snape by gabbyd70
 
Through videos, images, and easy to follow project steps you will learn how to make a great portrait. In my skillshare class, I will walk you through materials to use as well as how to pick the best reference photos. Then we will start sketching and I will teach you how to accurately draw the portrait using gesture and correct proportions. I will then share the knowledge I've learned from professionals on the planes of the face and light and shade. Blending and shading will of course be covered. I will also walk you through how to draw the eyes, nose, mouth, and hair and all the common mistakes you should try to avoid when drawing these features. Finally, I will teach you how to make your drawing really special with finishing touches.

All along the way I will be sharing tips, tricks, and techniques I've learned. This class will be packed with information and will help bring your drawing skills to the next level! This class will be great for the beginner as well as the intermediate or advanced student. 

In this class I will share knowledge about portraiture in general and it can really be applied with any medium! So if your favorite medium is say charcoal, digital paint, pastels, watercolors, etc. this class will still have tons of useful information you can apply to your portrait work. 


Eye Drawing by gabbyd70 Pencil Drawings by gabbyd70 Light and Shade by gabbyd70

This is a self-paced online class. So once you purchase you will have lifetime access to all the videos and content, for only $19! You can use this class to get started on your own pencil portrait. Then share your project in the student gallery for feedback from classmates all over the world. As this is a lifetime class, I can not guarantee I can be hands on with every student through skillshare. However, I will be active in the classroom providing feedback whenever I am able. You can also feel free to contact me through deviantart if you would like a critique on your work.

If you have any questions about the class, please don’t hesitate to ask! Hope to see you there! :D


----------------------------------------------------------------------------
There are so many great artworks going up in the STUDENT PROJECTS section of the class. So cool to see! If you joined the class and would like feedback on your work or from me, make sure to upload there. I would love to see! :dance: (also, send me a link so I can put it here) :D

I've decided to do a project this year. I need to become more active with my art and learning. I have the time, I just get lazy often and I don't do it! This year I am going to try and change that. So I've started this project for myself and hopefully I will be able to stick to it! I will be keeping track of the art I make here by writing down the date and what I did that day.  Hopefully it will keep me more accountable. :D Anyway, I will post links to works as they are uploaded.

Wonderful Artworks!

First of all THANK YOU to everyone who joined the contest and took part in any way. Every entry was truly great and I hope you all enjoyed creating your works! :hug: If your entry did not make it here, please do not be upset or feel discouraged. If nothing else, you have an awesome new artwork to add to your gallery, so thank you for joining!

I wish I could feature all the entries here, but with 333 entries, I would exceed the limit! :wow:

So with that said, I need everyones help picking the final three winners.
There are three equal grand prizes:

:bulletpink: 65 dA Points from llamablaster :points:
:bulletpink: Feature from gabbyd70 Kachumi sabannaJDarnellCrazypurplebat

~Please pick your TOP 3 favorite entries that you think should win a grand prize.
~Write down the numbers (found next to the images) and post it in a comment on this journal.
~Comments will be hidden as they come in so the voters will remain somewhat anonymous.

IMPORTANT! If your piece has made it to the Top 24, please DO NOT ask anyone to vote for you. Please do not post a journal, send notes, tell others to vote for you via comments, etc. If it is discovered that you have asked people to vote for you then your work will be disqualified.

:rose:Girl with a Flower Contest:rose:

Hello Everyone :wave:
I haven't hosted a contest in a long time, so I figured I would host a little contest since I have some points. :D

The objective is simple. Draw a girl with a flower! It can be one flower or it can be many. It can just be a simple flower in the hair, a flower incorporated into her jewelry, a flowery pattern on clothing, a flower tattoo design, a flowery background, or she can simply just be holding a flower. It's up to you. Let's just see what beautiful art you can make with this idea. Here are some great examples by some amazing artists- gabbyd70.deviantart.com/favour…


:bulletblue:R U L E S:bulletblue:
(Please read all these rules, if you still have questions, leave a comment :D)
  • You may make a drawing or painting and it may be made either traditionally, digitally, or a mix of both.
  • It can be one flower or it can be many. Your work just must contain a girl with a flower.
  • One entry per person.
  • Entries must be new. (uploaded on or after 10/21/11)
  • No deviations that need a mature content filter will be accepted.  Also no blood, gore, or other frightening imagery.
  • To enter, upload your piece to dA and please put a link to this journal in your artist's comments (the text section under your deviation) and say you are entering the contest. Then note me with a link to your piece.
