Figure drawing is one of the most challenging and exciting experiences an artist can engage in. Join artist Brent Eviston in this drawing video tutorial to get started drawing the figure now as you learn the fundamental tools and techniques to develop a strong foundation for how to draw people. A collection of individual skills that are best learned separately before combining them into finished drawings, the exercises in this video focus on the foundational skills that will allow you to create masterful drawings later on.
As you follow along with Brent's in-depth instruction, you'll start with a sepia-colored pencil and reference photos to capture a gesture pose with quick, expressive linework. Next you'll learn how to use measuring techniques to make the drawing accurate. From here, you'll learn tips to see and draw shape and volume as you complete the basic construction of a figure using simple shapes.
