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.

You will learn

✓ How to draw dynamic figures that come to life on the page.
✓ How to capture the action of any pose.
✓ How to assemble the parts of the figure into a dynamic whole.
✓ How to draw the various parts of the figure including the hands, feet, head and neck.


• Although this is a beginning figure drawing class, it is not a beginning drawing class. Some basic drawing skills are recommended, but not required.

This course is for

• Anyone wanting to draw the figure.
• Fine artists looking to improve their skills.
• Aspiring digital artists looking for a career in the arts.
