I have a new class on Skillshare –

“How to Draw Cool Character Designs – Mech Warrior.”

In these videos I will walk you through the process of drawing the character you see here. I go over how to sketch out the proportions of your character. Then I talk about how to construct your character design by using basic primitive shapes.

This is a beginner to intermediate class and it isn’t specific to any type of software. It is for traditional and digital artists to learn from.

I will also be adding more character designs so be sure to let me know what you would like to see in the future. I will do my best to make it happen.

If you have any questions I am always happy to help!

Right now you can use this link and get 2 months free of Premium on Skillshare. So watch all you can and really up your art game. There are tons of great instructors on that platform! 🙂

Digital Painting in Manga Studio 5 – Character Design

I am currently working on my next lesson for drawing and painting in Manga Studio 5 / Clip Studio Paint.  This fantasy art piece will be what I demonstrate from start to finish while explaining the tools I use within Manga Studio 5.

In these lessons you will learn how I draw out a concept like this one and continue to make changes until I am satisfied. Then we will move to applying the paint effects. You will learn how I use layers and groups, combine modes, custom brushes, quick masks, mesh transformation, and pretty much everything it takes to bring this artwork to completion. You will even learn some cool post processing techniques that I use to get my artwork ready for the old portfolio!

You will also get some cool custom brushes to work along with as well as a copy of the art file.

I will keep everyone posted on the release of this next lesson so be sure to follow me on my Gumroad here –

How to Draw Comic Style Hair – 3 Ways – Narrated Lesson

How to draw comic style hair 3 ways
How to draw comic style hair 3 ways

Here is my next lesson for Drawing Comic Style Hair 3 different ways.

This started as a request from one of my Patreon supporters. I have done some other tutorials on my Youtube channel but this one is a more in depth look with art files to work along with.

I have struggled with getting the right look for hair for many years so I know what others mean when they say they just cannot seem to draw it properly. It is one of those things you will always be studying to get better at. Just like hands, faces, and feet. ( Yuck! I hate drawing feet. lol )

So don’t beat yourself up in the process and just take your time. Draw from as many resources as possible to gain your perspective on the subject. Great artists are not made overnight. It takes lots of time and lots of studies!

In this lesson I will walk you through my process step by step in real time. You will see how I built up the shapes and design the hair style I am after. I then show you how I place the shadows and add in the render lines or texture of the hair. I also talk about the importance of simplifying the process for your comic book style art.

So I hope this lesson will shed some well needed light on that subject matter for you and keep in mind that I am here to help. If you have any questions or requests for future content I am listening!

How to Draw Hands – 6 Different Poses – Narrated

How to Draw Hands – 6 Different Ways – Video Lesson

In this video I discuss how to draw hand poses and things to look for to make this process easier.  I talk about some of the primitive shapes that are noticeable in the hands when designing your art pose. As well as study methods to commit more of this to memory.

Hands are always a tricky topic but it is important to not shy away from them because you find them difficult to do. We learn a lot from drawing hands and they are in integral part of telling a great story within your illustrations.

If you have any questions about this video lesson then please feel free to comment and I will do my best to help you if I can. Either in a response or through and upcoming video.  Good luck with your art and thank you for reading!

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.

BONUS Content!  ( Only on my Gumroad ) Now by getting this course you will also get my lessons on How to Draw and Shade Muscular Arm Poses just to sweeten the deal.  Includes the art files as well! 😉  Sample Video – https://youtu.be/0w6m3KiMfZ4
