Sketch A Photo: Portrait

Sketch A Photo: Portrait

Learn how you can create a realistic portrait drawing with our photo projection feature! Follow along with Hayley in using our Smart Trace technology to sketch your portrait outline, define the features, and shade by applying light pressure with your pencil to create depth. The photo in this experience is provided by Jimmy Fermin via Unsplash. Whether you’re a beginner or are looking for a new approach to realism, using the photo feature to sketch is a great way to train your artist eye to examine your subject like the pros.
