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

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.

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

Created by Rich Graysonn - Illustrator Designer


Students: 21984, Price: $109.99

Students: 21984, Price:  Paid


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.

The Art & Science of Figure Drawing: GESTURE

Learn everything you need to know about drawing dynamic, expressive figures.

Created by Brent Eviston - Artist and Instructor


Students: 19530, Price: $99.99

Students: 19530, Price:  Paid

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.

Foundation for Digitally Sketching a Face

Accentuation of proper detail

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.

The Art & Science of Figure Drawing: VOLUME & STRUCTURE

Learn to Draw the Figure in Dramatic 3-Dimensions

Created by Brent Eviston - Artist and Instructor


Students: 8511, Price: $99.99

Students: 8511, Price:  Paid

Volumetric drawing is an essential figure drawing skill that brings a dramatic sense of 3-Dimensionality to drawings. It does this by emphasizing the fundamental volumes of the figure. This technique has been relied upon for centuries and is still used by master artists and creative professionals today.

In this course we’ll be using a vocabulary of basic volumes: the sphere, the cylinder, and the cube. If you’re enrolled in this course you should already be comfortable drawing these volumes at various proportions and various orientations in space. We’ll be combining these basic volumes to create the more complex forms of the figure.

In this course we’re going to focus primary on geometric drawings of the figure. These geometric drawings are a powerful tool that will ensure that you see and draw the figure as a dynamic 3-dimensional object moving through space. Once you’ve learned how to draw the body geometrically, you’ll learn how to incorporate a dramatic sense of volume into realistic drawings by using dynamic mark making and descriptive contours.

To help you understand the volumes of the body, this course includes some unique projects. You’ll be led step by step through the process of creating anatomical models of some of the more challenging volumes of the body including the head and the rib cage. You can use these models as drawing and anatomical aids so you always have help understanding how these forms of the body operate in perspective.

This course includes numerous timed practice poses as well as downloadable still images of fully nude figure drawing models.

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

This is an intermediate figure drawing course. It is highly recommended that you complete my Gesture course before taking this course.

Drawing Comics – Anatomy and Figure Drawing

A step by step guide to drawing human anatomy

Created by Ed Foychuk - Illustrator and Instructor at How To Draw Comics . net


Students: 5485, Price: $29.99

Students: 5485, Price:  Paid

Let me ask you something. Do you ever struggle with anatomy?


Maybe you're not completely sure where the muscle groups go, so you just kinda guess instead - and hope it's right.


Or do you ever get people who leave feedback on your work, simply stating "You need to improve on your anatomy" and then forget to tell you how, or where to even begin?


You might be motivated to learn anatomy, but just feel so overwhelmed by the thought of how long it's going to take to learn every single muscle from memory. 


If that's you, Ed Foychuk's new course "How To Draw Comics | Anatomy" might just be just what you need to

help you solve those anatomical obstacles once and for all.



When it comes to drawing characters in comic books, animation, story boarding or concept design, understanding anatomy is critical to drawing people that look accurate.


Every muscle carefully clicks into the body like an interlinked jig-saw puzzle to power the human machine. They propel each movement with momentum - tensing, twisting and pulling to execute our desired, physical action.


It's a complex system to say the least.


But learning anatomy is necessary to truly harness the power of dynamic figure drawing.


If you can hack the intricate, underlying system of muscles within the human body - to understand how each muscle connects to the next; it's size, form and purpose, the level of confidence you possess in your figure drawing abilities will sky rocket.


In fact, you'll have complete control over the way you draw your characters.


Imagine, being able to draw your characters in any pose, from any perspective, knowing that their 

anatomy is properly structured, without ever having to second guess yourself.

That's what this course aims to give you in 14 lessons, spanning over  6 hours of intensive anatomy training. When you get this course you'll watch example after example as to how the muscle structure of each part of the human body is broken down, analysed and reconstructed.


Each demonstration is specifically designed for you to follow along with, with easy to follow steps that clearly show you how to give the basic foundations of your figures sound anatomy. 

How To Draw Comics | Anatomy covers suits such as:

  • Simplified Skeleton

  • Torso

  • Breasts

  • Back

  • Shoulders

  • Neck

  • Arms

  • Legs

  • Butt

  • Hands

  • Feet

  • Structures

  • Adding Clothes

  • Line of Action


Plus you'll also learn how to construct a proportionally accurate, simplified skeleton to serve as the foundation of your character's anatomy.

On top of that you'll get a PDF companion included in this course which is to designed to compliment the video tutorials your instructor, Ed Foychuk has put together. And while it could be of some help on it's own, it really is made for you to follow along with the video lessons.

Shading is the most sought after figure drawing skill. If you can shade basic volumes like spheres and cylinders, this course will teach you how to use those same skills to shade the human body. You’ll be led step by step through the figure shading process from simple light and shadow patterns to highly rendered anatomical details.

In addition to Brent’s award winning instruction* this course includes a set of 100 photographs of beautifully lit, fully nude figure models. These photographs were created specifically for this course and will provide hours of shading practice. This course also includes high resolution images of Brent’s original drawings for you to study.

Each lesson in this course focuses on a specific step of the shading process. At the end of each lesson you’ll be given a specific exercise. By the end of the course you’ll have your own fully shaded and rendered figure drawing.

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

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

Drawing & Art Course with sketches Drawing

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

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!

Figure Drawing

Learn to Draw Dynamic Figures

Created by Siobhan Twomey - Artist, Animator & Figure Drawing Instructor


Students: 90, Price: $89.99

Students: 90, Price:  Paid

If you’ve always wanted to learn how to draw dynamic and expressive figure drawing, or if you would like to push your drawing skills to a higher level through drawing the figure, this course is for you.

This course is also for complete beginners who have never drawn the figure before, because you will learn a set of foundational techniques that beginners and seasoned artists can use to dramatically improve your drawing.

In this class you will learn what I believe are the 3 most important aspects of figure drawing:

  • how to make marks that your own unique expression,

  • how to observe, or see, correctly;

  • and how to identify anatomy on the model to draw what you see with more precision and detail.

You’ll start out learning ways to unlock your own signature for drawing: your marks on paper - we’ll explore this through gesture drawing, using short 1 minute and 2 minute poses to create fluid, dynamic and powerful studies. I’ll explain exactly what gesture drawing is and what it isn’t, I’ll give you a set of exercises to develop the technique of gesture drawing, and you’ll also learn the real reason behind these ultra short poses like 30 seconds or 1 minute, and the real reason has nothing to do with making a fast sketch!

From there, you shift gears and discover the other side of the coin to gesture - a slowed down and considered contour line. This is a crucial skill that will help you to develop your observation. The way you look at anything when you draw is the key to being able to draw. And contour drawing is the most powerful and most direct way to unlock this.

You’ll learn all about blind contour, outer contours and edges, and cross contours.

After developing correct observation, and developing a way of expressing what you see, you will then learn how to apply a solid knowledge of the underlying structure. You’ll learn all about anatomy for artists, and how to identify and understand the structure that you’re drawing.

Then I’ll show you how to bring together everything in a cohesive and unified way of drawing - a Natural Way of drawing, a way of drawing based on your marks and your observation., supported by your understanding of the forms.

This last section completes a drawing skillset that i believe is powerful and will never let you down. With this, you’ll be able to draw anything.

I’ve been drawing the figure for close to 20 years now. The way I express my self though drawing is I believe who I really am as a person. Thats what it’s like, the power of discovering your own voice as an artist. Figure drawing for me is not just about proportions and anatomy it’s also deeply about creativity and expression.

I would love to share this with you and help you to discover your artistic voice through figure drawing, because not only is figure drawing a beautiful art in itself it’s also probably the most foundational art practice you can do.

So, join me in the class and start improving your drawing and your creativity today!
