This course is approachable enough for beginners and detailed enough for advanced artists. My philosophy is to teach timeless concepts in an approachable entertaining way. I believe that when you are having fun, you learn better. I take pride in producing high quality videos that you will enjoy watching and re-watching.

What you will learn

1 Gesture
One of the most important concepts to drawing the figure. Gesture is the rhythm, motion, action, flow, and posture of the pose.

2 The Bean
An effective tool for identifying and drawing the tilting, leaning, twisting, and foreshortening of the body.

3 Landmarks
Know the areas where the bone is at the surface. Landmarks are used to find forms and to measure proportion

4 Mannequinization
Give your drawings volume and perspective by using mannequinization to help invent poses from your imagination.

5 Robo Bean
Create a representation of the body with boxes to help find its orientation and use it to visualize it as a 3D form.

6 Proportions & Measuring
Learn how to use Dr. Paul Richer’s scientific system of measuring an average person and apply it to your own work.

7 Shading
Use highlights, halftones, core shadows and more to make objects feel 3 dimensional. Identify specific elements of light and apply it to the form.

8 Practice & Patience
Develop a drawing schedule and stay motivated. Knowing how to actually draw this stuff helps with… well, drawing this stuff!
