  1. Hi matt, thank you for your answer,
    i followed the directions, but the download button dos not respond to me.
    i will try from another computer, and let you know.

  2. Really looking forward to this 1 after successfully completing secrets to drawing eventually like because of my disibility and extra illness, getting used to morphine patches etc……… Here we go !!!!! 🙂👍👍👍👍👍
    Oh just to say I’ve improved quite a bit since starting that 1st course thank you Matt for all the hard work you put in, from videos, Ebooks and live lessons, blogs 100 % passionate teaching 🙂 Cheers Matt xx

  3. When I tried I was unable to determine how large the circle should be, how far it came down on the line I had drawn, then how wide to make the lower portions of the skull. When I tried to guess, it was too narrow. Where can I get measurements?

  4. I think I have missed a tutorial on measurement when drawing from sight? Is this in the secrets to drawing course? I haven’t looked at that yet.

  5. This is a great drawing which highlights all the deep fossa of the skull which might have been overlooked but which were so well demonstrated.

  6. Matt I can’t find a Toned Grey pad. The Charcoal pencil seems to need to be imported from China for some reason. I found a pastel pencil ( white). Will that do? and can I use white paper?
