I’m so convinced of this, I’ll give you a no-questions asked refund if you’re not satisfied.

Bridging the gap between theory and practice, each module’s assignments have been designed to both reinforce theory, and feel rewarding. I’ve taken the core of the theory, and purpose built each assignment to help you rapidly progress, and you’ll see the difference in your own work almost immediately. Art is about doing, so let’s get started- let’s draw something awesome!

What are Students Saying about the Course?

"Probably the best art course I've ever taken -- online or in college. Wonderfully presented, it helped me correct mistakes I'd been making that were really holding my artwork back. I've seen phenomenal progress after 30 days practice of the course material. Highly recommended." 

Dan Rahmel ★★★★★

"Just a perfect 5 stars rating. It's really complete and filled with advice, theories and concrete examples. As he said, it's probably the last character drawing course you'll take. It's all I wanted. Thank you so much Scott Harris!" 

Mario ★★★★★

"Amazing course. I haven't even started drawing yet because I'm in awe of how simple the instructor makes even the most complicated techniques look. At last, drawing like a pro is within my grasp! I also like the fact that the instructor allows me to just watch the first time through without worrying about drawing until I'm familiar with the concepts. My next time through the course, I'll be prepared and more confident than ever to begin drawing. Even so, I've already used some of the concepts in this course for a sketch here and there when I feel inspired to draw, and I can tell worlds of difference between my former drawings and newer ones. Laid back instructor, but very knowledgeable. I highly recommend this course."

Figure Drawing From Life Using The Reilly Technique.

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.

Portrait Drawing 101 – Pencil Drawing Course for Beginners

Students: 62571, Price:  Paid

In this 5.5-hour portrait drawing course I will teach you step by step how to draw your first impressing portrait with a pencil.

No previous drawing knowledge is necessary. This drawing course is for beginners.

Most people think that drawing a human portrait is extremely difficult. Actually, it's just a myth. If there is desire in you, you will learn this stuff. Believe it or not, art is not the privilege of the few, it is more like a set of skills that you can learn.

Even if you draw like a 4-year old kid now, it will change dramatically in a few days.

Portraiture is a great thing, because once you draw you first pencil portrait, it will make you believe that you are able to learn to draw anything.

What drawing tools you need

If you have just a traditional graphite pencil and some copy papers, that's perfectly enough to begin this course. But if you prefer to use any digital drawing tools, that's ok too. For example, you can use Photoshop with a drawing tablet, or the popular drawing & painting app called Procreate on the iPad with the Apple Pencil. Whatever drawing tool you use, note that we will be doing traditional portrait drawing with a simple graphite pencil (or its digital equivalent).

Content

This beginner drawing course consists of four main sections.

I like to build up my students' drawing skills systematically, so we will start off with the basic building blocks of the human head, and gradually moving forward. You'll be doing plenty of drawing exercises before you draw your first full portrait.

The 1st section is about the structure of the head. The structure, the proportions, and relative position of the facial features (the eyes, the nose, the ears, the mouth, etc.) are crucial for drawing a realistic portrait.

So, you will learn

  • how to draw the head from any angle in a few simple steps (sketching)

  • the proportions of the head, the location of facial features in front view and side view

  • the planes of the head which will help you to understand its 3D structure, how to draw a face in perspective, and create a believable shading later in the course

The 2nd section is about one of the most important drawing skills called shading. Shading is key to create depth and the illusion of 3-dimensionality on your drawings.

You will learn

  • how an object surface behaves in light

  • how shadows are created

  • and how to illustrate them on your drawings to create a convincing 3D look

You can also make some shading exercises to prepare yourself for drawing faces from real life.

In the 3rd section you will have the opportunity to draw each facial features one by one in all kinds of viewing angles.

You will learn

  • how to draw eyes

  • how to draw nose

  • how to draw ears

  • how to draw mouth or lips

As a bonus, I'll show you how to illustrate emotions on the face in cartoon style. When you draw a human portrait, it's important to observe every little details on your subject's face. Drawing cartoon faces is fun, and a great exercise to recognize the important facial features. Don't miss this lesson!

In 4th section we will make a fairly realistic, full pencil portrait from scratch.

We will

  • take a reference photo, and analyze the face piece by piece

  • draw the construction lines of the head paying special attention to proportions and relations

  • then start the shading process step by step building up the face layer by layer

  • make the final touches and polish the portrait

If you follow my instructions and perform the drawing exercises along the way, your friends and family will be amazed what a human portrait you're capable to draw.

Have some fun with me and enroll in this portrait drawing course now.

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

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

***BRAND NEW COURSE OVERHAUL for 2020***

This is an introduction to anatomy and figure drawing. Drawing anatomy for some is an elusive unicorn that can seem impossible to catch. Books can be confusing and even cryptic. I have the same books that you have and they really didn’t help me improve. Not being able to create can be a crippling experience for an artist. We can trick ourselves into thinking we don’t need to draw the figure and can just “get by” through clip art or tracing. The truth is that is simply not good enough. It’s time to finally slay that figure drawing dragon.

 

 The skills you acquire here will enhance not only your own work but give you a solid base to in any other online course or book. There is no "Quick fix" or "shortcuts" to making great art. It requires work. It's fun work and I'm going to show you a method that will make creating your own human figures for games and comics or a client’s work "pain free".

 

The skills you will learn will apply to things like character design and turnarounds for games and creating action for comics. It can translate to illustration and digital painting and can even give you a jumpstart to 3D. There are limitless possibilities once you learn anatomy and figure drawing. The only limits are the ones you set for yourself.  

 

  • ·         You will learn how to draw anatomy without relying on reference

  • ·         You will be able to think like an artist and be a problem solver

  • ·         This is for those that are serious about improving art

  • ·         Keep an open mind and there is no time limit, work at your own pace.

  • ·         You will learn the muscles of the figure

  • ·         You will learn how to pose the figure

  • ·         You will learn to create variety and develop your own style

  • ·         You will no longer need to “search for a pose” or look at another artist's work.

Who this course is for:

 

  • ·         Any beginner who wants to learn how to draw

  • ·         Art students (traditional and nontraditional and self-taught)

  • ·         Traditional artists who want to learn anatomy and figure drawing

  • ·         Graphic designers who want to learn to draw anatomy to get more clients and more work

  • ·         Anyone who wants to make their own game, graphic novel or illustrations

What this course is Not

  • ·         Not a "Speed Painting" course

  • ·         Not a series of "Shortcuts"

  • ·         Not a "Watch me draw" type of course

  • ·         Not a "magic wand" for drawing (You have to put in the work)

  • ·         No special software or any software is required. 

I hope you will join me and allow me to be your professional guide on your art journey.

In this beginning figure drawing course, you’ll learn the exciting art of gesture drawing.  Gesture drawing is one of the most important, but least understood parts of the figure drawing process, but Instructor Brent Eviston will guide you through the figure drawing process with the same award-winning instruction and hands on projects that have made his other drawing courses bestsellers.

This course brings the figure drawing studio to you by providing master instruction and timed practice poses for you to draw from.  Once enrolled you’ll learn from numerous anatomical diagrams, detailed drawing demonstrations and hundreds of photographs of a fully nude model.

This course contains 12 lessons, each filled with essential figure drawing techniques. Each lesson contains at least one practice reel with timed poses specifically chosen so you can get the most out of the lesson they accompany.

By the end of this course you’ll be able to do gesture drawings that stand alone as works of art as well as lay the foundation for more detailed figure drawings.

Because this course features photographs of a fully nude model, it is important that you conduct yourself maturely and appropriately in the course.

Although this is a beginning figure drawing course, it is not a beginning drawing course.  Some basic drawing skills are recommended.

WHAT STUDENTS ARE SAYING ABOUT THE COURSE:

The first thing to say is that unlike some 'art instructors' Mr. Petrocchi is clearly an accomplished artist. He's not simply some guy who's always liked to draw, got a microphone for Christmas and thought it'd be cool to make a course. I regard myself as an exceptionally unexceptional draftsman but can already sense some improvement in the way I'm tackling portraits.The value I've already received leaves me with absolutely no complaints. You'll be getting A LOT of information from a guy who knows what he's doing with this course. And the demos - from blank sheet of paper to finished, fully rendered drawing - are both highly informative and inspirational. I'm not sure you can ask for more than that from any instructor. It's a keeper. Many Thanks, Mr P for putting this together.

–Sam Pollard

Of all the elements of drawing, portraiture is one of the most difficult to master. Practice alone is not enough to create portraits that come alive. That is the core value of this course. It provides a strong foundation for the individual to begin to master the creation of portraits of substance. This is not a course for the lazy. It requires patience and practice. But it will provide a roadmap that will allow the student to create fulfilling and satisfying portraits.

–Stuart Givot

An Excellent Course. I was Impressed by Chris's Level of Knowledge, Experience and Expertise. This course has differently give me knowledge that will help me improve my work and help me integrate into work with Charcoal.

–Aisha Smith

I was blown away of how great of a teacher Mr. Petrocchi is. He provided some incredible insights into helping me improve my facial drawing skills. It's amazing of how easy and simple he teaches technique. I feel inspired and highly recommend his courses. I can't wait to learn more from him!!!

–Tuese Ahkiong

Here is a clear, deep and well made course. Chris's sense of art teaching is excellent, it's like hanging out in his studio, looking over his shoulder (literally sometimes) and learning from following a professional. He talks out loud what goes on in his thoughts as he mindfully works his image. Seeing him work really helps me. His own career is used as an example, and I love all the personal stories that talk about his journey in the art world and specifically in this field of drawing portraits. The course is full of gold nuggets of info, stories, metaphors that help me put words and structure in my work. (I love the "Valley of the Suck" concept–so true! ) This course really helped me to clarify my work in regards to values. Also, it helps to come back to those foundations of the underlying structure of the face. I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to build a strong foundation and seriously wants to get into portrait art. As it is in my case, I would recommend it as well to any professional that wants to come back and touch those foundations again, one tends to forget stuff! Thank you Chris, and I agree "the figure is a song"!

This portrait drawing course will teach you how to draw beautiful, realistic portraits that capture the subject's likeness.

What makes this course unique from all the others out there, is how it breaks down the complex topic of portrait drawing into manageable concepts and step-by-step exercises.  

You'll begin by learning simple concepts and practicing basic drawing exercises. As your hand dexterity and understanding improve, the lessons will gradually increase in difficulty until, by the end of the course, you will have drawn your every one realistic portrait. Even if you are a beginner with no drawing experience, you'll find the lessons and exercises easy to understand and enjoyable, while still learning critical drawing skills.  

Key things you will learn:

  • How to simplify the head into basic shapes so you can draw it more easily

  • How to draw the head from different angles to create more dynamic portraits

  • How to draw the planes of the head in order to create a three-dimensional effect

  • Understanding the rules of lighting in order to make your drawing look realistic 

  • Understanding the basic anatomy of each of the facial features so you can draw them better

  • A simple step-by-step process for drawing a realistic portrait from start to finish

  • And a whole lot more!

COURSE BONUSES:

  • Reference photos and hi-resolution scans of all finished drawings

Course Overview

This course is divided into 5 sections. 

The first section is going to primarily focus on how to draw the head freehand. You'll learn about the very powerful Loomis Method and how to use to it draw a simplified head in the front, 3/4, and side view. 

Then we'll learn how to draw this same head and neck in more dynamic angles like the front view tilted down and up and 3/4 view tilted down and up. This will help you understand how the head is affected by perspective and allow you to tackle many different portrait positions. 

Next, you'll learn about the proportions of the head and features and how to place them on the face. This knowledge will become very useful in the next section where we'll build upon the Loomis Method to construct a more three-dimensional head. 

Again, we'll cover all the different angles like the front, 3/4, and side view. As well as the more dynamic positions. 

OK, by now, you should be pretty comfortable with the overall structure of the head and in the third section, we'll cover the fundamentals of realistic shading. You'll learn about the 5 Elements of Shading and how to combine them to create a three-dimensional look. And you'll also learn about the 4 Different Types of Edges and the Rules of Realism and how to use them to add interest to your drawings. Then we'll combine all these concepts and techniques in a drawing exercise. 

Now, all these shading skills you've just learned will become very useful in the fourth section where you'll learn to draw each of the facial features. 

First, you're going to learn about the anatomy of the feature and point out little tips and details that you need to pay attention to. Then we'll apply everything we've just learned in a step-by-step drawing exercise. You'll see how to take the drawing from a basic lay-in all the way to a complete realistic finish. 

And we're going to do this for all the features: eye, nose, lips, ear, and hair. 

Finally in the fifth section, once you're comfortable with drawing all the features, we'll combine everything together and draw a complete portrait from start to finish. Even at this stage, you'll be learning some new techniques like how to use Triangulation to keep your lay-in accurate, how to accentuate the shadow to make the portrait more dramatic, how to stylize your drawing to add more interest, and so on. 

Who Is This Course For?

As the name suggests, this course is very beginner-friendly. I designed it to help beginning artists learn portrait drawing as quickly and effectively as possible. 

We start out by developing the simplest skills first and then gradually add on to them so that you don't feel overwhelmed. All the concepts and techniques are throughout explained and I never just assume any knowledge on the part of the student. 

Also, I know that draw free-hand can be a bit challenging for some beginners so, in some of the drawing exercises, I offer additional approaches that you can use as a guide. 

So, yeah, if you're a beginning artist who wants to learn portraiture, then this course is definitely for you. On the other hand, if you're an intermediate to advanced portrait drawing artist, then this course is probably not for you.

Have you always wanted to learn to draw?
Have you struggled to take your drawing skills to the next level?

You’re in exactly the right place. This course is for beginners and also for those who want to gain confidence with the fundamentals.

I start you off nice and easy - Basic shapes and construction drawing

Master these and you’ll feel your confidence growing already. Lots of fun introductory projects like ‘Peppie the Pup’ build your skills step-by-step.

Wow! It looks so realistic! - Shading and Form

Those skills you’ve admired in other artists for so long can be your skills too. Projects like ‘The Shoe Well Travelled’ will challenge you (but you are up to the task!) Your drawing will almost ‘pop’ off the page, amazing yourself and those around you.

One of the most admirable skills in art - Portraiture

Capturing a likeness is one of the most admirable skills in art. It’s so satisfying. Render individual facial features and create a wonderful child portrait.

Look at the world in a whole new way - Perspective and Proportion

How can you represent the three-dimensional world on a flat piece of paper? How do things we see change as they get closer, further away or turn towards us? These questions are all answered with perspective. Your eyes are now open to a whole new way of seeing and drawing.

Plus an extra bonus...
For additional inspiration I've include an extra bonus section where I detail my approach to drawing people and cute characters using construction drawing.

This is the beginners drawing course you've been looking for...

Even if you think you're not naturally talented my super easy methods and in-depth explanations will set you on the path from your first pencil lines towards creating professional grade artworks.

I've been teaching beginner artists for over 20 years. I know exactly what you need to get started the right way, and I've jam packed it into this course.

Plus, if you have any questions at all throughout your drawing journey, just ask. My team and I are right here for you.
