"I think it becomes a completely different person, but somehow I've finished it!! I'm proud to have completed the whole face, but I didn't really like it, so I'm going to do it again, and the hardest thing was controlling the pressure. I was blending the neck part with white color and it’s all lumpy. Oh well, if I practice more, it will get better."
-by So Yeon
"I wanted to learn how to draw portraits, so I took this course. Hair and accessories are still a struggle, but I'm happy that I was able to finish the class."
-by Eunsol Lee

Congratulations on completing the course!
Hello! I am Songbly, an illustrator with 42K followers on Instagram. I’ve received so much praise for my colored pencil portraits—many fans have reached out to let me know how much they love my work BUT I was sad and shocked to hear that people consider drawing the human face incredibly difficult!!!
So I’ve put together this comprehensive (and FUN!) online art class so YOU can learn how to depict the human face in gorgeous portraits using colored pencil.
It's true that depicting the real world and capturing emotions and beauty can be challenging… especially if you’re trying to create realistic art.
With this class, we’ll start with simple sketches and focus on the colors, eyes, and emotion of the person you’re drawing. It's not going to be difficult. In fact, you’ll discover a new joy in capturing the true soul of the person you’re depicting in your portrait!
- People that are interest in art and painting but find it hard and challenging
- People that already draw and sketch and want to improve
- People that want to work in color
- People that wish to learn how to express emotions and moods in their drawings of the face
- People that want to make artwork to share with friends, family and the world!
