Exploratory Sketchbook: Find Your Drawing Style is a course on drawing and finding your own style. It's a course for beginners and assumes no prior knowledge of drawing.
The course covers the basics of illustration such as how you can use colours, contrast, balance and composition.
You'll learn how to draw people, scenes and the final project is on drawing yourself in your own setting, at home or anywhere. The instructions are pretty straightforward and easy to follow.
The course is not about copying exactly what's being draw but on drawing things in your own style. So there's no stress even if you can't copy exactly. The fun part is on experimentation and seeing what your drawing tools can do.
The main medium used throughout is gouache for its opacity. You'll definitely need to use an opaque medium to follow along with the drawing lessons. Other tools include coloured pencils and markers.
This course shows you the creative process from start to finish, and is a fun course for anyone who wants to learn drawing.
