Learn How to Draw! Fun & Easy Exercises for Nailing Proportion, Shading, and More

via Skillshare


Drawing is a learned skill. Even people who seem insanely 'talented' weren't born that way: we all start as beginners. My name is Brooke Glaser, I'm a full-time illustrator. Drawing didn't come naturally to me, at first I struggled with it. But now I work as a professional illustrator. In this class, I'm going to share the techniques I use to draw proportions quickly and accurately, tips for getting in the 'zone' of drawing, and we're going to dive deep into shading. I'll share the different types of shadows, where to place them and different tricks for drawing them digitally.

My goal with this class is to show you that anyone can learn to draw. If you're a new to drawing, this is the perfect class for you. The examples will be done entirely in Procreate, but if you prefer working with traditional mediums, you'll be able to follow along just fine.

I also share my favorite art tips, in person meet ups and workshops, and other resources for artists via e-mail. You join in here.
