When should I move on from one course to the next?

You’ll most likely want to stay with a concept at least two to three days until you move onto to something new. Understanding that certain techniques will take years to master. For example with Figure Drawing A Layered Approach you can practice drawing the rough skeleton for about two days before moving onto the three shapes technique. Understanding that you will have to revisit each technique periodically in order to master it. Of course this varies from member to member.

How can I get my drawings critiqued?

Every member can get one drawing critiqued per week in our Member Critique Gallery.

I can't seem to upload an image from your PDF's to the Member Critique Gallery.

If you have a Mac simply press “Command – Shift – 4” all at the same time. Then drag your cursor over the image you want to copy. When you lift off the trackpad you will hear a camera sound. Your image will be located on your desktop. Simply save it as a jpg.

If you have a PC select the window that holds the image you would like to copy. “Hold the Alt key then press the Print Screen Button”. Your image should be saved to you clipboard. Simply save it as a jpg.

August 8, 2008

We launched our original membership site Drawing Tutorials in 2008. For well over eight years our original site has serviced the needs of thousands of artists just like you. However there comes a time when you just out grow your space. In 2008 mobile wasn’t even a concern. Now half of all members access our site through multiple devices. This new flexible platform will allow us to grow into the future together.
