Craftsy: Portrait Drawing Class

craftsy-portraitdrawing

Once again our sponsor this week is Craftsy which provides resources for creatives in the form of videos and tutorials. We’ve teamed up to offer a Free Portrait Drawing Class that teaches you how to capture a likeness; things like mapping the face, refining shapes, and drawing different variations. This is worth checking out if you want to pick up some fundamentals, the best part being the fact that it costs nothing.

Sign up for the free class Draw Better Portraits: Capturing Likeness.
