“I was genuinely impressed by this class. I thought I had a decent grasp on color mixing and skin tones, but the practical tips and step-by-step guidance opened my eyes to nuances I’d never considered before. It exceeded my expectations and genuinely made me excited to apply what I’ve learned to my next project.. Thanks Iva!!”

Hey!

Are you keen on drawing character mini-portraits but find mixing colors and painting skin tones a bit challenging?

Well, I’ve got just the right class for you. 😊

In this brand-new class, we’ll delve into the nitty-gritty of creating stylized character portraits while mastering the art of color mixing and painting authentic skin tones.

What’s the Class About?

  1. Character Mini Portraits: We’ll start with simple shapes, so you don’t feel overwhelmed. I’ve found that beginning with basics helps ease the frustration of wanting to make everything perfect from the get-go.
  2. Color Mixing & Skin Tones: No more struggling with figuring out which colors work best for skin tones. I’ll share my tips on mixing darker and lighter tones, and what to consider for cooler and warmer colors.
  3. Value Understanding: We’ll look into values to make it easier for you to decide on color combinations.

Who’s This Class For?

Why Should You Take This Class?

In my experience, understanding the fundamentals of color and shape can take your artwork to new heights. This class aims to remove the guesswork from color mixing and shape building so you can focus on what truly matters—creating art that resonates.

Once you’re all done and super happy with your project illustration, don’t keep it to yourself!

Share it on Instagram and make sure you tag me in the image @art_side_of_life, not just in the description. That way, I can see your fantastic work, and who knows, it might even feature in one of my upcoming videos.
