Rendering Techniques

In this series, instructor Chris Legaspi will share with you various ways to render your drawings, using a variety of different materials. Chris uses his approachable, thorough teaching style to make the often-intimidating rendering stage accessible to artists of all levels. In this sixth lesson of the series, Chris uses the Prismacolor Verithin and Premiere pencils to demonstrate various cross-hatching and tonal mark-making techniques. Chris will demonstrate using photo reference of a female portrait, standing male, and a male hand– all of which you can find attached to this page.
