Free Lesson from my Course on How to Improve Your Figure Drawing

Free Lesson from My Course on How to Improve Your Figure Drawing

This is lesson 2 from my course on How to Improve Your Figure Drawing Step by Step that is available on both Udemy and my Gumroad. This will give you an idea of what you can find in the full course.

In this lesson I show you how to break down the arm with basic shapes to make drawing it from your mind much easier. This won’t replace knowing your anatomy. That takes years to accomplish. But this will give you the fundamental knowledge to build upon. I create these types of studies all the time to continually improve. You will also get the art files from each lesson in this course.

The entire course goes through each of the body parts of both male and female. This is a basic approach to figure drawing. This entire tutorial is 3.5 hours.  I share techniques that I have used over the years to create comic book illustrations and storyboards for television.  You will learn how to systematically break down the various parts of the body into simpler shapes.  As I illustrate each area step by step you will follow along and learn from my studies.  This will give you insight into how I create my artwork and create poses from the mind.  I also share what techniques I use to improve my knowledge of the human form.  Things like gesture drawings, timed studies of the pose, negative space drawing, foreshortening, perspective, organic versus angular lines, and much more.  You will also be given a copy of the art files that I have created here so that you can work along and study from them.  By the end of this course you should be more confident in constructing your figure drawings from the  mind and have a better understanding of the human form.

Batman’s mask Step by step Drawing Tutorial

Here is a quick step by step drawing of Batman’s mask.  This character is a great way to test your level of drawing.  He is very recognizable so the mistakes will be easy to spot.  I always revisit popular characters for that reason.  And they are just fun to draw.  I will be doing lots of these so as I get them uploaded there will probably be a gallery or something dedicated to them.  You can also make requests so that if and when I get some time I can create them.

This is the way that I have always gotten better at my drawings.  I want to show other artists that this can be a great way to learn complex drawings for comics.  By breaking down the simple parts like this, you can make those tough drawings easier to accomplish.  That’s how I do it anyways.

And of course we can’t forget about the guns!  Can’t have superheroes without big muscly arms. 😉  I will also be adding some more step by step drawing lessons on proportions as well.  That is another sticky topic area for most of us.  I constantly struggle with them myself.  One of the reasons I like to create these is that I get better with my own artwork as I am sharing these with my fellow artists.  Everyone wins that way!

So make sure to check back real soon for more step by step drawing lessons.  Share this blog post if you find it helpful and informative.  I need lots of feedback to make this site work for everyone.  More of these are on the way and let me know if you have any questions.  Good luck with your art!
