Stephen Bauman is an award-winning figure artist and in this Masterpiece Demo, you’ll get to watch him create a masterpiece from scratch. You’ll see his entire process from start to finish.

What You Get

Stephen completes this portrait over 2 days working entirely from a live model and finishes with realistic rendering. This demo and lesson is a must-have for those wanting to see the entire process and workflow of a professional draftsman. We’re so excited to release this new demo series. There are 2 versions included with the purchase.

A Real-Time Cut

A 12+ hour real-time version. The only things we cut out were breaks and long pauses so that you can learn from the raw experience. If there’s any portion of the drawing that you want to see in detail as it really happened, such as the eyes or hair, it’s in this cut. You’ll have the full experience and appreciation of the time and effort that goes into a drawing of this scale.

A Refined Cut

A shortened feature that will include Stephen’s complete process from start to finish. From the hours of footage we selected the most essential parts and assembled them into a shorter cut to deliver as much information as possible in the quickest amount of time.

What you will learn
1Blocking In Basic Shapes
Learn how to translate your view of the 3-D world into useful 2-D shapes. The practice of shape design helps every aspect of your drawing process from proportion and likeness to gesture and structure.
2Establishing Shadow and Light
Learning to see and organize these two aspects of the visual world is one of the foundational aspects of a proper drawing education.
3Organizing Halftones
Half-tones are the tool that you can use to create form in the light shape. They are also one of the keys to maintaining structure throughout the course of a drawing.
4Developing Structure & Planes of the Head
Planes help us to communicate the volume of the head. From the very first lines of the block-in all the way to the final and most subtle applications of value.
5Refining Shadow and Light Shapes
Shadow shapes and light shapes each have tendencies in their appearance.
6Resolving Planes of Individual Features
Learn about different solutions you can use to simplify and then elaborate on each of the features of the face.
7Softening Edges and Getting the Big Impression
Learn about where and when to apply different shading techniques. They can be the difference between a portrait really, "coming together," or lacking a sense of focus.
