Hey Fun Fab Drawing Club Member!!
I hope you're as excited as I am to start on a new expression....
Super sexy and sultry.... va, va VOOM!
So FUN, am I right?!
I've dropped a copy of the face drawing reference image I used, along with a PDF of my final to help you along.
When coloring time for this lesson, I started with marker shades from a combo in my Skin Tone Secrets book, page 36. Remember, YOU HAVE ACCESS to an eBook version of this right HERE.
I've also left a PDF of page 36 in the classroom for you. Grab all the resources for today's lesson HERE.
If you've been a club member, or even YouTube follower, for a while - you know I'm ALL about showing you everything- the good, bad, and the ugly.
When I make a mistake, I will NOT edit it out, because this is how we ALL learn! And you're right, if you think I'm about to tell ya I made a mistake while filming this lesson, I sure did.
The issue I had was a problem with SCALE. The reference I was using was on my phone, so of course I wanted to blow that up to fill a large piece of paper, right? Well, this is where the problems started.
The face on today's girlie is upturned - which makes proportions a challenge anyway. Hopefully, YOU learn a valuable lesson by watching me mess up and work my way out of the little pickle I got myself into!
Art is SO often just as much about problem-solving as it is just having fun!!

What Fans Are Saying
Karen, you are absolutely fabulous! You make me feel like I can draw anything. I have recently retired and finally have the time to do some of the art that I have loved since I was in school. I am really at the beginning of my art journey and I hope to learn as much as I can. Thank you for all you do.
