Join illustrator Marc Taro Holmes and find out how to draw people in motion. Gain the skills to use pencil, ink and watercolor with confidence for results that will astound everyone around. To begin, you'll create a gesture drawing, and learn to sketch moving subjects quickly and freely. Up next, add detail with ink as you define the basic shapes of your subject, refine your image and loosely sketch in shadows. Then, create movement with hatching and get tips for building silhouettes with swift strokes. After that, bring your sketch to life as you apply a watercolor wash, reinforce shadow shapes and lay down rich color and detail for a fascinating finish. Plus, use fun watercolor techniques to capture fast-moving subjects. And finally, explore fundamentals for infusing storytelling into your visual narrative.
Meet your instructor, artist Marc Taro Holmes, and discover how you can easily draw people in motion using pencil, ink and watercolor.
