TAKE YOUR PENCIL DRAWINGS TO A NEW LEVEL

The ordinary graphite pencil is usually the first art-making medium that we explore as artists. This common and simple tool is capable of producing incredible drawings and anyone can do it. All it takes to create amazing drawings is a basic understanding of the concepts of drawing, a knowledge of the tools and surfaces, and a willingness to learn and apply what you've learned to your own drawings.

Fortunately, it doesn't require talent to create life-like drawings. It requires knowledge and practice. This comprehensive drawing course provides you with the knowledge by exploring the core concepts of drawing such as light and shadow, shading, creating textures, sketching and proportion while covering a variety of forms of graphite including traditional drawing pencils, mechanical pencils, powdered graphite, water soluble graphite and even colored graphite. All while exploring the subjects of still life, portrait drawing, landscape drawing, figure drawing, and pet portraits.

Not all of us prefer to learn from watching videos. Some of us prefer to learn from books as well as videos, so ebooks are included as well. This course has been developed to accelerate learning by teaching to many different learning styles. Each course module includes an illustrated ebook that corresponds with the video. Every step and concept is clearly illustrated and described in each ebook.
