About this course

Welcome to this class!

My name is Emma Woodthorpe and I am an artist and illustrator, and today I'm going to be talking you through the basics of creating a believable 3D image using the medium of charcoal.

The basic skills learned here will help you develop your skill and confidence through to more complex pieces of art, making your 2D drawing appear 3D.

I do take feedback on board, and have already changed my class thumbnail image in response to feedback, so please do interact with me through the community tab or through the reviews!

For this lesson you will need:

  • Fine Grain Cartridge paper - suitable for charcoal,
  • Charcoal sticks, 
  • Charcoal Pencils ranging dark, medium, light, white charcoal
  • A paper stump,
  • A putty eraser,
  • a cotton wool ball, or a piece of toilet roll.

Let's get going!
