Figure Drawing From Life Using The Reilly Technique.

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

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.

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

- TESTIMONIALS -

"Juan was instrumental to my growth as a painter, and I would not be the artist I am today without his guidance. He's not only a great teacher but very fun and interesting with knowledge in topics beyond the visual arts that relate directly to them. He is possibly an ancient wizard, despite his age claims, he looks not a day over 40."

- David Shepherd

"I had the great pleasure of working with Juan Martinez during his tenure at the Academy of Realist Art here in Toronto. The school offered a one-week course in 'alla-prima portrait painting' with senior instructor Juan Martinez and I immediately signed up. I had been a drawer for the past 50 years, so I was relatively new to painting having only started to paint in 2003. I felt that an intensive portrait painting workshop with one of the ARA’s principle instructors would be helpful in broadening my abilities.

Day One of the workshop began with a 3-hour demo by Juan and I immediately knew I was in the right place. Not only was he a superb painter, but his explanations of the process of painting were clear and well-directed to the various student levels in the room. His understanding of light and shadow and (more importantly) his ability to pass this understanding on to his students was remarkable. Over the week I found Juan to be an excellent instructor with personal, individual help for every student and an easy-going charm in the classroom. Would I sign up for the course again? Absolutely."

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.

Welcome to the wonderful world of Colored Pencil Drawing!

In this course I reveal my professional colored pencil drawing secrets with a super fun project - a fully rendered illustration of my children's picture book character "Mr Andy Snufflewood".

Afterwards you'll be able to apply these same techniques to your own colored pencil illustrations, characters or colouring books.

Spend a few hours with me in the studio

Grab yourself a cuppa and relax. I'll take you through this step-by-step. It's like you're spending a few hours with me in the studio as I personally show you my professional techniques. Don't worry though. I've spent years figuring out the quickest and easiest ways to do things so that you don't have to. Follow along. This is going to be a breeze.

Here are just a few of the pro tips I'll be sharing with you...

One Pencil Tip - Three Ways!

Have you ever used colored pencils and been frustrated as you constantly sharpen them?  Your beautiful colored pencils very quickly shave down to tiny stumps before you know it. How sad! But it doesn't have to be this way!

In this course I'll show you how to get outstanding results without having to constantly sharpen your pencils.

Less sharpening means your precious pencils will last longer and you can color faster. It makes a massive amount of difference (plus if you are using expensive professional-grade pencils it can save you a huge amount of money!)

(Interesting fact - while shooting this entire course I used a pencil sharpener just three times!)

Vibrant Color, Depth and Form with Awesome Gradations

Do you want to create coloured pencil drawings that almost pop off the page with vibrant color, depth and form? I'll show you how to do that with gradations in just one color and also in multiple colours. You'll see the effect in Mr Andy Snufflewood's golden yellow overalls.

Learn how to really impress!

And when I say 'impress' I mean I'll be showing you how to use the impressing technique to create a wonderful easy fur texture you can use again and again in your own characters.

Inking your characters outline

I'll show you how to outline your character with accents to add interest and depth to your outlines, ready for the really fun bit... coloring.

Give it all a bit of a burnish!

Have you ever heard of  'burnishing' and wondered what that's all about? Well...you're in for a treat. I'll be showing you (in a very practical way) how to use burnishing to add that final touch of gorgeousness to your coloured pencil drawings.

Plus loads of other tips and techniques sprinkled liberally throughout the course...

This course was filmed in almost real time. As I'm drawing I chat about little nuggets of coloured pencil wisdom all throughout. No boring bits I promise!

Works with cheap pencils and professional brands too

The great news is that for this course it's up to you what pencils you choose to use. The techniques I'm revealing will work with cheap supermarket brand-name pencils as well as the more expensive professional brands. Tip: avoid buying the super-cheap no-name brands. Either way, whichever pencils you choose for this course, you'll be saving time and money just by using my super-duper '1 pencil tip - 3 ways' method which minimises the amount of sharpening you'll do.

You'll feel so supported

You're never alone with my courses. My students describe my Facebook community as "the most welcoming and supportive group on the internet". You're going to love it.

You've got absolutely nothing to lose. Udemy offers a 30 day money back guarantee!

So come on then! Bring your sense of childlike wonder and fun (plus your pencils and paper of course) and let's get started.

Pencil Drawing – The Guide to Graphite

Students: 936, Price: $34.99

Students: 936, Price:  Paid

"Pencil Drawing - The Guide to Graphite" is a complete video course on pencil drawing with graphite designed for beginner and intermediate artists. The goal of this course is to provide the learner with a rich learning experience through "easy to digest" modules consisting of video demonstrations and accompanying ebooks.

The ordinary graphite pencil is usually the first art-making medium that we explore as artists. This common and simple tool is capable of producing incredible drawings and anyone can do it. All it takes to create amazing drawings is a basic understanding of the concepts of drawing, a knowledge of the tools and surfaces, and a willingness to learn and apply what you've learned to your own drawings.

Fortunately, it doesn't require talent to create life-like drawings. It requires knowledge and practice. This comprehensive drawing course provides you with the knowledge by exploring the core concepts of drawing such as light and shadow, shading, creating textures, sketching and proportion while covering a variety of forms of graphite including traditional drawing pencils, mechanical pencils, powdered graphite, water soluble graphite and even colored graphite. All while exploring the subjects of still life, portrait drawing, landscape drawing, figure drawing, and pet portraits.
