The inspiration for this lesson actually came from my sisters playing Shakira's song over and over again called 'Gypsy'. I can't tell you how many times I have heard the song and it's not due to my interest on listening to it. This lesson will show you "how to draw a gypsy", step by step. I wanted to be traditional with the concept, but I also wanted it to be colorful, easy and pretty to look at. Instead of making a whole bodied image I went with just her head and shoulders. I used some of the characteristics of Esméralda from The Hunchback of Notre Dame like her big hairstyle, pouting lashes, and big gold earrings. If you are a fan of gypsy art and have wanted or waited for a lesson on drawing a gypsy, here is your chance to start making it happen. I will be back with some sports tuts in a bit so stay tuned in people.
