Hello! Guess what.. I’m here to announce that June 17th, I’m starting the figure drawing fundamentals series! It’s been a long wait, I’ve been working on it for 6 months now. For those of you that have been waiting, thank you for your patience. I’m excited to finally get started.
I’ll try to teach you everything I know about figure drawing. I got it all planned out. Here are the topics I’m planning on covering in the figure fundamentals series in the next, oh….. 4-6 months? Each week or two I’ll introduce a new concept that builds on to the previous. We’ll start with gesture, then move on to the bean, transform it to the robo-bean, structure and manniquinization, landmarks, proportion, balance, exaggeration, measuring, and finally finish it off with a complete figure drawing using tone. At the end of the series I hope you’ll be able to complete a figure drawing and you’ll be ready for my next series on figure anatomy.
In this figure series I plan on putting out a lot of material and examples with each concept for those of you that want more than just a 5 minute weekly video. So, I’ve setup a premium section on Proko.com where I’ll post extended versions of the free videos and additional videos of example drawings and critiques related to the lessons. For those of you that can’t afford it or just don’t like paying for things, I love all my viewers not just the paying ones. That’s why I’ll continue making free videos. So, basically each lesson will have a free video and premium videos. If you want to learn more about it, visit proko.com/figure
