Are you a dog lover? Maybe you have a dog and love it so much that you are inspired to draw it. And not just one drawing, but many, in different poses and from different angles.
Or do you just want to draw dogs in general and find it difficult?
I thought so. That´s why I´ve created this class for you. Here I will teach you an effortless technique that will allow you to draw any dog, from any position. We will go step by step and learn how everything comes down to construction.
Would you build a house without a blueprint? Sounds crazy, right?! Well, it´s the same about drawing dogs.
Seeing the dog´s face in simple shapes will allow you to build a solid construction on top of which you will be able to add the features of the dog. In that way, you will be able to draw any breed of dog in any position. It won´t matter to you if you have challenging perspective changes or if you can see the dog from the front, you will be able to handle it easily.
I´m also going to teach you how to use a pencil to create shading. The way you hold your pencil determines the pressure you add to the paper. Using your hand to tilt the pencil will allow you to draw strokes with different intensities. And that will allow you to draw dogs that look three-dimensional with no effort.
Then you will learn about light and shading and how important that is to create an illusion of a three-dimensional object.
I will teach you how and where to add details. Like, for example, you don´t have to draw all the hairs on the dog´s fur. What to choose to draw and what to leave out is as important to creating an appealing drawing that looks rather like an artwork than a photograph.
I´m going to use four different techniques that will help you break your fear of drawing, which is the main reason you are hesitant for having the best experience while drawing. It is about pleasure and boosting these dopamine receptors while learning in the process.
So, follow me in this course, and let me guide step by step through constructing the dog´s face to refining the features and adding details.
Now, I won´t keep you waiting. Jump into this course and let´s get you started.
Who this course is for:
- Beginners in drawing
- Dog lovers who want to draw their own dogs
- Portrait artist who want to draw dogs for a living
- Anyone who want to learn drawing by drawing dogs
I am a character design, film director, animator, and illustrator. I have worked in the animation industry for over 15 years, bringing characters to life.
I have worked with clients such as McDonald's and Ericsson to create top-notch 3D animated characters for their commercials.
I´ve had the privilege to direct actors such as Sir Roger Moore and Peter Stormare among all, as voice actors for animated movies. I´ve worked with renowned illustrators and screenwriters such as Iain McCaig, the legendary designer from Star Wars, to breathe life into stories and characters.
The TV-show I´ve recently written and directed, called Space Yoghurt, is having a worldwide success and has been featured twice in the Animation Magazine.
I´ve published several children´s books.
I started my life as an artist at the age of 13 when I attended art school. The first year we had to draw 50 drawings a day, after school. It seemed a lot, but now I know it was what it took to be able to draw well. I know what it takes to become an artist, but also I know the struggle of the process.
I´m here to share with you the knowledge that I´ve been gathering through my experience on how to draw. I´m also here to inspire you and let you know that each one of the artists you admire today has been a beginner. Having said that, I´m going to share with you some shortcuts to how you can start drawing and get a result immediately, because, sure you need to put in the work, but inspiration is what will keep you going.
You will see that you too have it in you, but you are not aware of it yet.
Welcome to my world.
