Drawing Is Simple

Learn the skills you need without getting lost in the weeds.

I believe in teaching exactly the skills that you need in order to achieve your goals. Complex theory, mathematics, and overwrought explanations of simple concepts drive me up the wall, and I'm sure you feel the same way. So I design my lessons to give you the kind of experience I had learning under an experienced working artist. This course is designed to be useful for beginning artists and advanced artists too. We'll cover the entire process of drawing heads, from simple construction, movement in space, feature drawing, shadowing, and all the way through to a refined finish.
