Book Worm Girl

She’s finally here guys! :D So many of you saw the work in progress photo steps of this girlie on my instagram and instantly asked me: ‘will she be available as a lesson?‘ and at first she wasn’t and then all of a sudden: SHE WAS! NOW SHE IS! :) Yayyyy!

Come learn how to make this adorable ‘Book Worm Girl’ and get in touch with your Inner Book Worm! :) She is sassy AND bookish and she has so much spunk this girl! :) I totally absolooooodely LOVE her and her bookish ways!

What you’ll learn:

  • I show you step by step how I made this painting, no skipping of any parts (approx 1 hr 45 mins worth of video)
  • Supported by an in depth 20 page PDF
  • You’ll learn a new type of face angle: her face is tilted down, she is reading a book, this is a different type of face than the usual front-facing portrait, so you’re learning a differently angled face, that is angling downward, interesting!
  • The book pile is done with ‘perspective’. I go over how to achieve depth on the pile of books.
  • We shade the face with beautiful little details to make her face radiant and ‘glowy’.
  • We go over how to make a beautifully messy mixed media background with lots of different layering techniques.
  • There is no time limit on class access
  • All Videos are downloadable and for you to keep forever!

This class is suitable for beginners and affordable at only £17.50 GBP (Bargainnnn!) – I hope you’ll sign up moonbeam, it’s good fun this one! :D
