I'm so excited to show you how to draw and shade a whimsical SCOTTISH face in copic markers today!! We'll even be drawing freckles!! While learning how to draw freckles in copic markers may SOUND SCARY, it's really not!! Trust me! Grab a sheet of cardstock or a paper you love using for alcohol markers art, a pencil, & let's sketch an oval for the face shape.
🙋 NEED MY CHEATSHEET for Face Drawing Guidelines? Scroll down & request it in the comments!
Drawing facial features to match the art reference photo was a little trickier than I anticipated, so watch me carefully if you're just learning how to draw a whimsical face. Once you've got your drawing proportions of the face the way you like them, pull your skin tone markers out and do some copic marker swatches before diving in with color you can't erase!
For the next part of today's "Whimsical Women of the World" portrait drawing lesson, I'll teach you how to draw freckles and wavy red hair on your adorable Scottish lass!!
When you're feeling brave, pop those freckles in dot by teensy dot. If you're still scared, practice drawing freckles on paper you don't care about, off to the side. Still nervous? Press play and we'll do it together ;)
