Learning to draw is supposed to be difficult
When I was growing up I always thought that you needed natural artistic ability to be able to draw, so I never even tried. Years later I wanted to start a business so ended up needing someone to design a logo for me. At the time I lived in a small town and couldn’t find anybody to do it for me. Out of frustration, I drew my own logo. It wasn’t great by any stretch of the imagination, but it somehow ignited a spark in me — I wanted to be able to draw. Just like something sparked in you at some point. I then set out to learn the secrets of the masters. Moving from one drawing course to the next. If I was lucky to get a good instructor I got a little bit better. More often than not though the tutors just let you do your own thing — you had to find the “artist inside” yourself.
Suddenly it was like a light was switched on
Then one day as I was sitting at the dining room table struggling with a drawing it suddenly struck me. I finally knew what the problem was. I knew why I wasn’t getting any better. I was drawing, but I didn’t understand what I was drawing. From that point on I spent all my time trying to understand what I was doing. No more monkey see monkey do drawings for me. In a short space of time my drawings went from this:
now, with a bit more practice under the belt, my drawings look like this:
You can also draw like this
Let me show you how to draw absolutely anything you want by understanding what you are drawing. I will take you from the very beginning with what equipment you need in order to draw successfully, all the way through to drawing hyper-realistic portraits.
but it won’t take forever to learn
It took me years because I had to learn by trial and error. I will show you what I wish I knew at the beginning. In your first class, I will show you what equipment you need and we will get a feel for our pencils. Even your very first full drawing will be gallery quality. This is the stunning drawing you will complete in your second class after I have shown you how to see your tonal values correctly:
You will be amazed at how quickly you progress
Over the next 4 modules, we will cover topics like shading, texture, negative drawing, and reflections. The way you will learn however is not with any heavy classroom stuff. I hate that just as much as you do. In each lesson, we will spend a few minutes looking at the core concepts and dive right in and learn the meaningful way, the way that makes sense and lets you remember it forever — by doing an actual drawing. Hands-on, step by step. Except this time at the end of the class, you will understand what you have done. For example, if we are learning about texture and we are drawing the onions and garlic scene. I will explain what to look out for, show you how to render the texture itself, and show you where possible problem areas are and how to find them. In other words, by the end of the class, you will be able to set up your own unique arrangement containing onions and garlic and be able to confidently draw it. Unlike other classes that just teach you to draw that one specific picture.
Draw along in each class
Each class has been professionally filmed in real-time so you can pack out your pencils for each class and actually draw along too.
No matter where you are
As each class has been filmed using the latest technology you can watch the classes in front of your computer, or from your tablet in the studio, or even review a class on your phone on the train on the way to work.
in Full High Definition quality
Each class is available in a variety of qualities to suit your Internet connection speed and bandwidth allowance. You can set the quality of each class up for better quality, or down for lower bandwidth usage at any time during the class. After the spoon class, you will move on to draw these pencil studies:
You won’t believe your eyes
After the first six modules of the course, you won’t believe how quickly you have progressed and the quality of the work you have produced — now would be a good time to amaze your family with your new-found artistic talent. You will probably even get a few commissions along the way.
Then you will learn how to draw realistic portraits
With your drawing confidence at a newfound high, it is time to take your ability to the next level by learning how to draw portraits. As with the previous classes you are never thrown into the deep end. We will start off with the easiest feature to draw, the eyes.
How to draw realistic eyes
In this class, you will learn how to shade the different features of the eye. You will learn how to make the eye look glossy and wet, how to make the eye look recessed into the eye socket, how to draw realistic eyelashes and eyebrows, etc. By the end of the class, you will confidently be able to draw any eye, no matter what color it is, no matter which direction the person is looking in because you will understand how each element of the eye fits together and how they affect each other.
How to draw realistic noses
In the nose class, you will learn about the subtle little shadings and reflections you need to look out for while drawing. These make the difference between a realistic looking nose and a flat boring one. You will learn how to make the nose appear as though it is raised up off the sheet of paper. By the end of the class, you will be able to draw any nose, at any angle, under any lighting situation because you will understand the mechanics of the nose and how the light affects it.
How to draw realistic mouths
During the mouth class, you will learn about the different components of the mouth and what to look out for which drawing them. You will learn how to make the lips look realistic, including the cracks in the lips that everybody battles with. You will learn how to make the teeth look sparkly and white. You will even learn how easy it is to show super fine detail like the reflections on the teeth. After the class you will be able to draw any mouth, whether it is closed, open, smiling, shouting, etc. because you will understand what you are drawing and know where the problem areas are and how to avoid them
How to draw realistic ears
Drawing ears is an area that most artists avoid because they really battle with them. In this class, you will learn about the six different areas of the ear and how to draw each realistically. After this class, you will not be shy to ask your model to turn their head sideways as drawing ears will be a breeze. You will know where the problem areas are and how to avoid them and you will know how to make the ear stand out off the face so that it looks three-dimensional.
How to draw cheeks, chins, foreheads & necks
Most portrait courses stop after showing you how to draw the five main features of the face. Leaving you to figure out how to tie all them all together. We will continue on by learning how all the features of the face fit together. You will learn how to draw frown lines on the forehead and add a dimple on the chin. You will learn one of the most important, yet never mentioned features of the face — the neck. If you don’t draw the neck correctly, the entire face looks flat, no matter how well you have drawn the face itself.
How to draw realistic hair
The next module focuses on how to draw realistic hair. In this module, you will learn how to draw straight hair, curly hair, light hair as well as dark hair. You will learn how to create the impression that you have drawn every single strand of hair without actually having to do so. You will learn how to create depth, show the sunlit highlights on the hair, as well how to make the hair appear as though it is receding away from you around the back of the head. You will also learn how to ensure the hair doesn’t end up looking like a loose wig on top of the person’s head. At the end of the class, you will be able to confidently draw anybody’s hair because you will understand what you are drawing and what to look out for with each person.
How to draw realistic beards
Any portrait course would be incomplete without teaching you how to draw beards. In this lesson, you will learn how to draw stubble, short beards, long beards, and even greybeards. You are going to be amazed at the easy technique used to do this. Here are just one of the beards you will learn to draw during this lesson:
By this time drawing will be easy
At this point, you have completed 26 hours worth of easy to follow, step by step training modules and are very confident with your drawing ability. If you haven’t already started drawing your friends and family members, you will have no problem doing so. With a bit more practice under your belt, you will be able to take on portrait commissions and draw them so realistic they will look like photos. Do you know how expensive commissioned portraits are? Well, now you will be receiving the money, not handing it over.
but don’t take my word for it
this is what existing students have produced while following the course and what they have to say about the course.
Thank you for the great class. I really enjoyed shading a spoon, just one thing was distracting. These swirls on the spoon reminded me of cinnamon buns so now I am hungry, lol.

Artists usually avoid drawing hands like the plague because they are so difficult to draw. In this module, you will learn my secrets on how to draw ANY hand so that it looks like a photograph. After this class, you will be able to draw your own hand, and you will actually recognize it!!!
This module is a real bumper lesson. In the class, I answer and help with the most common problems encountered by the students of the course, so the lesson is not only practical but relevant to the work you have been doing. I show you how to fix the common problems ON the actual student’s drawings so you can see how it is done. Then I also do a demonstration showing the closely guarded secrets, used by the master artists you see on the internet, to draw hyper-realistic portraits. This info has never been shared before.
As an added bonus I will add downloadable pdf templates to each lesson, including the bonus lessons. You can then use these templates to transfer the drawing outlines accurately to your drawing paper without having to struggle with grids or proportional dividers. I will also add a high-quality exact size reference photo of the subject we are drawing to each module as well as a photo of the final drawing. That way you can reference my final drawing and the photo at exactly the same size as your drawing while you are working. As the photos are high quality you will also be able to zoom in on them to see the finer detail directly off your computer screen
And While I Am At It…
Let’s add a whole course on how to draw realistic birds as well :
In part 1 of the drawing birds class, you will learn the basic techniques used to draw the feathers. During this class, you will draw a beautiful seagull which will set you on a solid foundation for the rest of the course.
In part 2 of the drawing birds course, you take your basic knowledge of drawing feathers and build on it. You will learn how to draw feathers in fine detail as well as how to draw complex feather patterns.
Next, we move on to the most majestic of all the birds — an Eagle. As we want to be able to draw the bird in as much detail as possible, this is a two-part class. In this class, we draw the upper part of the bird. You will learn how to draw the eye, beak as well as crown realistically.
We complete the course on drawing realistic birds by drawing the rest of the Eagle. In this class, you will learn how to show the larger head feathers in brilliant detail without having to spend hours drawing every hair on every feather. You will then also learn how to draw the flat feathers on the body.

Charles Drewek review
5.0 out of 5 starsThis book is a great beginner’s guide to the basics
Reviewed in the United States on October 25, 2015
I’ve been working on improving the aesthetics of my backyard lately and I find myself sketching on random bits of paper all the time. I would describe myself as an artistic person being able to use Photoshop and Illustrator but I really have no idea how to draw. This book is a great beginner’s guide to the basics. It’s very detailed and the images throughout the book are helpful. It will definitely help me continue to mentally map out what I want my backyard to look like. I’d recommend this as a solid start for beginners.
I hope you liked this article.
