In this lesson, you’ll develop the skills for drawing 3D objects from any angle! Let’s start with the basics of 5 different perspectives, which are key to giving your artwork form and depth.

We’ll then experiment with drawing 3D shapes in these perspective grids before taking the brave step of drawing them freehand!

And then for the fun part: You’ll get to break the rules to add more flair and exaggeration to your artwork, giving it a life and personality of its own!

Now let’s dive into Reference Building, to enrich your mental library, and Reinterpreting Archetypes, to create unique and enhanced designs.

Soso shows you the steps for breaking down props, vehicles, and buildings into their basic forms to make it easier to draw them. Then you’ll discover how to manipulate them to create your own unique designs.

By the end, you’ll be able to draw any type of man-made object you want! This is a game-changer!

Learn to draw anything from imagination

Starting with the basics of male and female human bodies, Soso breaks down the human form into simple shapes to manipulate the proportions for endless variations.

He then teaches how to draw human faces and various animals, explaining their features, and showing how to draw them from any angle.

To cap it off, we’ll go crazy creating exciting, fantastical creatures like orcs, elves, and dragons! Super cool!

Let’s explore the wonders of Mother Nature!

We’ll immerse ourselves into the awe-inspiring natural world, simplifying complex landscapes, plant life, and organic objects into easy-to-draw shapes, making it a breeze to recreate.

Then, we’ll have a blast pushing the boundaries of our creativity by designing fantasy landscapes, suspending gravity, and creating cosmic, life-like forms. The sky is no longer the limit!
