Course Description

This Frank Reilly method drawing course in fifteen lectures covers the details of the "Reilly" drawing technique and demonstrations using it. This technique allows for complete figure drawings from life in less than 45 minutes. Starting with the lines of action and large abstract shapes, the course proceeds through small shapes, negative space, value, perspective, foreshortening, edge, line, details (face, hands and feet), and drapery on the figure. The final two lectures summarize the entire technique and give two examples using it to draw complete figures in under five minutes by Reilly Method Drawing.

    Awesome tutorial

    Awesome tutorial presenter is very knowledgeable and there is a vast of very useful information. However it's a shame the production side of these video is extremely amateur at best. High school students do better work than that, but can't really complain its free. FYI get your self a tripod and maybe borrow a second camera if your on a budget as we all are.

    • Domingo Abrego

    So far so good...

    Amazing techniques show off by this teacher.

    • Brian Baker

    A decent introduction

    For a beginner like myself, I found this course to be a good starting point for figure drawing, but will probably need to look at some other resources later. For example, certain concepts are very lightly touched upon, which is fine for a starting point, but as you become better, more instruction on the topics would be very useful. Obviously, this is no substitute for experience and practice, but a good launching pad to get started with figure drawing, but again, another source will probably be needed to help fill in some holes after some time and practice.

    Very good short course

    I learned a lot about figure drawing and helped me to draw sketches of the characters in my video game.

    • Francisco Gomes

    Good

    The instructor is very clear.
