Description: The next batch of lessons will be all concept pieces that I have worked on over the week and they are some of my best concepts I have done in a while. The descriptions will be short and sweet, but I do want everyone to know that each drawing holds meaning to me. They were done with specific symbolism, but for the artist who will be drawing said pieces, it could represent something different for you. This first lesson is going to show you how to draw a side profile, step by step using a girl who is baring her soul for all to see. She is surrounded by the moon and ocean as this is the only places where she finds peace. She looks to the moon for answers while she sits by the ocean side. Anyways, I hope you enjoy this lesson.
