In this much-requested lesson, Glenn Vilppu will teach you how to invent your own lighting from your figure drawings. As artists, we often need to modify our reference to suit our needs but few of us understand how to light the forms of the figure totally from imagination. In this seventh lesson in Glenn’s Advanced Renaissance Figure Drawing course, Glenn will use Faber-Castell Polychromos colored pencil and wash to draw figures from reference.
