Learn how to go from a simple idea to an engaging portrait of a captivating character with a gaze penetrating deep into your soul.

By the end of the course you will be better equipped to create a whimsical and emotive portrait by seeing beauty in darkness.

This class is for anyone who appreciates both creepy and cute! It is for anyone who wants to create lively portraits of their characters, through the wonderful medium of watercolor. I will help you build from a simple idea, give you tips on how to better notice and fix your own mistakes, how to add final details and making your character pop by adding accessories.



WHAT WILL THE STUDENTS ACHIEVE?


By the end of the course, you will know the anatomy of a face and how to stylize facial features to fit your own style. You will learn how to better control watercolor, and know when to let the watercolor control you, so you can create both interesting watercolor effects and smooth gradients. My goal is to give you the building blocks to keep improving your work after the course is done.
