Are you still thinking about needing to practice drawing or doing croquis? Whether you’re completely new to painting or just looking to improve your skills, I invite you to join me in the “One Day Croquis” class. This class is especially helpful for those struggling with human body drawing. By committing to drawing a little bit every day, we’ll build the habit of consistent practice and improve our skills together.
I’m not lacking in talent when it comes to painting. The main reasons why my skills aren’t improving are as follows:
- I’m not practicing enough.
- The exercises I’m doing are not helpful.
Painting requires both cognitive training and repeated expression. The limitations you may encounter while drawing can be overcome by expanding your cognitive abilities and practicing expressing them with your hands.
Are there certain difficulties in drawing a standing person versus a seated person? Is it easier to draw skinny people compared to muscular people? What about drawing just the face versus the entire body?
If I’m feeling frustrated with my current progress in drawing, it’s likely because I’m not doing the right exercises. By doing at least one sheet of croquis per day, I can accurately identify my areas for improvement and work on them. Through consistent practice, I’ll begin to see my stagnant drawing skills improve and progress.
Ultimately, my goal in painting is to move beyond just practicing and incorporate my skills into my actual work.
Have you only been practicing croquis since you started studying painting? If you’re interested in creating webtoons, illustrations, or concept art but lack confidence because you’re just starting out, remember that practice is key. There’s no end to the amount of practice you can do, so why not dive into it and start working towards your goals?
Let’s commit to practicing every day and working towards our artistic aspirations together.
Even if you draw the most beautiful eyes, nose, mouth, and hair, it won’t matter if the person you’re drawing has an awkward body. That’s why it’s important to learn how to draw people naturally using various approaches.
In this class, we’ll cover:
- ✔︎ How to recognize people by breaking them down into simple silhouettes
- ✔︎ How to recognize characters as a combination of organic lines
- ✔︎ How to recognize the volume and space occupied by a person
By starting with simple lines and gradually adding depth and dimension, we’ll learn how to draw characters that feel natural and comfortable. Let me guide you through the process of natural character expression, from two-dimensional lines to three-dimensional forms and into space.
When it comes to improving your drawing skills, it’s important to both learn properly and practice consistently. However, the most important aspect is developing the habit of drawing regularly. With enough practice, anyone can draw a great picture.
Let’s begin building the habit of daily drawing together through our Croquis class. Each day, we’ll cover one chapter and work towards improving our skills and developing a consistent practice.
