Figure Drawing From Life Using The Reilly Technique.

Learn to draw the figure from life in less than 45 minutes.

Created by Donelli DiMaria - Professional artist and teacher

"]

Students: 101920, Price: Free

This Frank Reilly method drawing course in fifteen lectures covers the details of the "Reilly" drawing technique and demonstrations using it. This technique allows for complete figure drawings from life in less than 45 minutes. Starting with the lines of action and large abstract shapes, the course proceeds through small shapes, negative space, value, perspective, foreshortening, edge, line, details (face, hands and feet), and drapery on the figure. The final two lectures summarize the entire technique and give two examples using it to draw complete figures in under five minutes by Reilly Method Drawing. There are also five complete demonstrations using this technique done in 4- 7 minutes of figures drawn from life in a variety of positions. The driving principal behind this course is that the "whole is more important than the parts" which is the reason that I start with a gesture drawing and build on its structure until completion with anatomy and details. Also, I cover how to apply drapery to the figure using the same principles.

How To Free Hand Draw with Square Drawing Grids

Learn to draw with pinpoint accuracy using a pencil and transparent grids. Copy your own photographs and scale up

Created by Colin Bradley School of Art - Pastel Pencil Artist and Teacher

"]

Students: 28665, Price: Free

Hi my name is Colin Bradley, 

I believe that everyone would like to draw. Not just draw but draw accurately, they’d love to copy their own photographs and create beautiful pieces of art. 

In the Victorian times, artist’s gridded out their drawings to ensure they had correct proportions and perspectives. A number of years ago I needed to do the same and created my own product - the square drawing grids. 

These have helped me time again to create accurate outline drawings that I use with Pastel Pencils and other mediums.  I began selling these grids 20 years ago and since then thousands of students all over the world have found success. 

In this course I will show you how to use our grids or any other gridded system to create precise and accurate outline drawings from your own photos.

I will show you 3 examples, a portrait, an animal and a landscape. I will also show you how you can use the grids to scale up your pictures, especially useful if you are working from a smaller photo.

When using the grids, you will not only understand perspective and proportioning out, but you will improve your free hand ability. 

This course is free and we encourage you to give this method of drawing a go. 

______________

In this course you will learn how to use the Square Drawing Grids to copy you own pictures accurately. 

You will learn how to overlay smaller grids to replicate fine detail in eyes and buildings.

Using the Square Drawing System teaches you about perspective, proportions and creates the muscle memory for drawing free-hand.

In this course Colin shows you how to use the Square Drawing System for:

  • Drawing Portraits
  • Drawing Animals
  • Drawing Landscapes
  • Scaling up your drawings
  • Transferring your drawings using a graphite carbon

Foundation for Digitally Sketching a Face

Accentuation of proper detail

Created by Chris Scalf - Commercial Illustrator, animator, and creator!

"]

Students: 16706, Price: Free

Welcome to my overview on sketching a face. 

The main focus of this video it to share specific details that I have memorized when drawing a face— in this case a woman.

These details are very specific for high speed deadlines, and are very important to focus on for accentuation of the right details in a fast delivery...

I work in the commercial art industry and am called upon to turn around a high volume of work in a short time. Just a week prior to this video, one job had the client needing 4 drawings within 8 hours. But in the first couple hours of that 8 hour time, I also have to delivery rough pencils for approval to make sure the composition and layout (as well as the look and feel of the people/characters) read very quickly, and clear. There really isn’t time to sit and adjust each feature as if working on a portrait commission. You have lay down the details fast, and move on--- Or miss the deadline.

So I hope you enjoy this video, and that it will give you a basic understanding of the foundation of how my creative process works when I am working on any projects— fast or slow. And I hope you will also check out my other videos on here, as well as stay tuned for many more to come.

Students: 2323, Price: Free

Create Better Illustrations by Understanding the Importance of the Rough Sketch

Thumbnailing your artwork is an integral part of the illustration process.  It can save you an immense amount of time and can spark your creative thinking.  This course is here to help you improve that aspect of your work.  The goal should be to explore a variety of ideas quickly and without too much judgement.  They don't need to be perfect.  Even in this rough sketch stage you can explore things like perspective, composition, proportions, and storytelling.  Then once you have your ideas in place, refinement will come more naturally!

Lessons in this Course -

L1 - Drawing with Basic Forms and Overlaps

L2 - Using Basic Forms to Draw the Body

L3 - The Benefits of Thumbnailing the Sketch

L4 - Refining the Concept

Just remember to explore the rough sketch phase of the work. It's your blue print to the rest of the drawing. If that is right, the illustration will turn out much more confident looking and chances are you will get it done faster.

I hope you enjoy this course and good luck with your art!

Sincerely,

Students: 2175, Price: Free

In the third way you learn to draw with proportions. Be careful like a ruler. Follow the millimetres. We discover the slopes and angles. Slope Angle Distance Scale. What is the importance of scale in drawing? The fourth way you learn is to draw a volume. Discover each topic in four major volumes. Spherical cylindrical cubes and cones. The objects are all made in four volumes. Even a bird. We practice rotating the volumes.

Combining volumes to make objects. No object is complicated because I will teach you analytics skills. Use the objects themselves instead of imagination and pictures. Draw the object in your hand. Accurate and close. Your eye and hand triangle should be strengthened. For this you can pass these master fundamental lessons.

You understand the intensity and direction of light shading. How is the shadow shape created? How does light dance on your hand? See technical notes and geometry of light and shadow. How does light shadow the volumetric collision? What is cast shadow and how is it created? Sunlight or artificial light? What is the highlight? How do shadows and objects affect each other? What do the cube and cylinder shades look like?

What are the shades of gray? Is it with thousands of dark and light? Not just three degrees of tonalities. Black and white gray. How light shades on fabric? Again three degrees on the cloth. Black and white gray. How do light or broken surfaces change light? Look at the glitter and shine of the glass. Practice sharp reflections on the glass.

Animal Sketching & Drawing for Beginners

Students: 1351, Price: Free

Would you like to learn how to draw animals? Dogs, cats, birds and horses and lions.

You must first draw and divide the animal body into its original shapes. Using circles, ovals, and curved lines.  You know that animals' bodies have tissues. How to draw animal body?

The subject of animal design is one of those topics that, despite being very attractive and an undeniable need of visual artists, especially illustrators, cartoonists and animators, has so far received unbelievably little attention to our education! Most of the designers who are working professionally today have gained this knowledge with effort and a lot of time and energy.

I am happy to have organized an animal design workshop to train students as well as those designers who feel weak in this area. In this workshop, a process is on the agenda during which you will first learn to see correctly and then you will move towards drawing correctly. You will go through this process by studying the treasure trove of information about animals. You will also learn how to draw animals with the correct scale and display the movement, gesture, and figure.

Creative B&W Pen Drawing

The Rules of Creativity

Created by Francisco Capelo - Visual Artist

"]

Students: 577, Price: Free

You may think that Drawing belongs to realistic art. And you may also think that this kind of creative visual expression belongs to artists.

You would be wrong on both ideas.

Creative Drawing should be everyone´s territory. Because it has to do with our mind. And our emotions. It´s the way we connect to the world outside: the objects, and animals, and plants, and absolutelly Everything that we see and touches our hearts.

If we are Humans - we Draw. It´s as simple as that.

The Black & White aesthetics continues to be very, very strong in Art History, and keeps producing incredible artworks.

Remember that these paperart works have the maximum colour contrast: black ink on pure white paper.

This Creative B&W Drawing course is divided in 4 parts:

  1. Wrong ideas beginner artists have (copy reality or the pencil and rubber kind of drawing, for instance);

  2. Art history and Comic book masters (Corto Maltese by Hugo Pratt, for example);

  3. Human figures and abstract symbols (and how to merge these two visual elements);

  4. Technique - visual composition (how to achieve your own unique creative voice and personal style).

And each 4 parts of this course has a different pratical project:

  1. Chaotic line and human figure;

  2. Make a perspective

  3. Draw a mother and son

  4. Create a simple but complete scene: figures, symbols and background

    It intends to suggest new ways of creating highly engaging and interesting works with simple elements that most people think don´t belong to visual arts: lines, patterns, letters, numbers, signs...

A world of new emotions is waiting for you.

Now you will be able to create another reality - Yours!
