Discover the 7 Secrets of Figure Drawing:



 

Draw Awesome Figures
in Two Weeks


 

Ever feel so frustrated with your figure drawings you just
want to give up? Is it even hard to draw a cartoon?



 

You see other artists’ work and think, why can’t I draw my
figures like that? I used to feel the same way until I discovered the secrets
of figure drawing, and I’m going to share them with you.



 

Tim thought he would never be a concept artist because his figure
drawings weren’t good enough, but then he found my 10 hour course, and guess what?
He’s now a concept artist.



 

You too can draw the human figure like a master artist.



 

“I want to help Neil because he helped me. I owe my job to
him. His teaching techniques and teaching style made everything finally click.
I just got it! I started drawing figures that looked good. What a great
feeling. Even if I never landed my dream career, just the feeling of drawing
great figures was worth every penny Neil charges. I can’t believe he offers so
much for so little.” – Tim.



 

Don’t give up on yourself. You can draw people, and you
won’t believe how little it will cost you.



 

You want to draw for a living, or paint for a living, but
the human figure is holding you back, but it doesn’t have to anymore. After you
go through 10 hours of video containing my step-by-step drawing lessons and my
best-kept secrets, you’ll draw the human figure like never before! Guaranteed.
I mean that.



 

I can guarantee it because I’ve seen it work again and again
for my students.



 

You should see Kim’s before and after, but I don’t know how
to post that here.



 

It worked for me. You should see how my figures used to look.
I almost gave up!



 

Once the secrets of drawing the human figure clicked, I made
quick leaps. Would you believe that before and after was only 30 days after I
figured the secrets of figure drawing out? Yes. It’s true. It only takes some
two weeks. I want to repeat that because it’s so awesome.



 

You can learn how to draw the human figure in two weeks!



 

What? Crazy, right? My students are evidence. I am evidence.
I’ve seen it work for me and others.



 

You just have to watch the videos and do the exercises.
That’s it.



 

You can have that dream job, drawing or painting.



 

You can make money
with your art.


 

You can, you can, you can.



 

But you’ve tried art courses? You read some figure drawing
books? You even paid for personal art lessons?



 

Why will my course be any different?



 

Because it is different. Why don’t figure drawing books tell
you how important it is to master the stick figure before you even start
drawing mannequins? Because not every artist is a great teacher. Most master
artists either don’t know or don’t remember what it takes to get to that level.



 

They don’t know how to break down the step-by-step learning
process that is necessary for most people to draw the human figure like a pro.
That is what this course does for you. It turns you into a figure drawing professional.


 

I guarantee you will finally be happy with your figure
drawings once you complete Master the Human Figure that I will give your money
back if you aren’t. Of the 1,297 people that have bought the course so far, not
one of them has complained. Not one.



 

But you won’t ever be able to draw the human figure?



 

If you can master the basic stick figure, you can draw the
human figure.



 

It’s true.



 

Students have told me I should charge $500 for this 10 hour
course Master the Human Figure. I don’t. I’m not even charging the normal $69
dollars.



 

What am I charging then? You are probably ready to punch me.



 

But why? Why would I do that?



 

Because, I have no overhead, no electric bill to pay, no
office rent, no CD’s to produce, etc. I offer you the 10 hours as instant
streaming video, with fast servers. You can even download them.



 

“I had spent a lot of
money previously on books and classes however what i have learned from both
your Mastering the Human Figure and the Mastering the Human Head is incredible.
What i enjoy most of your courses is that you break down the *Formulas*, and i
really enjoy the fact that you are always stressinsg the importance of
practice, practice, practice. I went from being frustrated and stuck to excited
and motiviated. And thank you for making it soo affordable, THANK YOU...”–Orlando
Piedrahita, CA



 

Why should I over charge you? It only cost like $100 to
produce a new, flat-screen TV, and they sell them for $300 and up. I’m not
going to do that to you. My conscience won’t allow it.



 

Why do my students believe I should charge $500?



 

Because you get 10 hours of video lessons. You watch over my
shoulder as I draw and teach you as if you were right there with me. You are
getting 10 hours of personal teaching.



 

Just look at all the
lessons.



 

In the fast-paced
world of professional concept art, you must learn to draw quickly. This means
you need to be able to draw the human figure from your mind, especially if you
want to be a comic artist. That’s exactly what these lessons will do for you. Without
any reference, You will draw people in complex poses.

Curriculum

Section 1: My First Section
01:56

Just a quick overview of what will be covered.

30:41

Learning the proportions  is vital to mastering the human figure, so don't skip this one. Don't skip any of them. The lessons and exercises in each lesson will bring you one step closer to drawing from your mind.

21:07

After you've mastered and memorized the proporstion for the human figure, then move onto mastering the basic skeleton. It's so important. I wish I had gone through this learning process. It would have saved me much time.

31:02

After you have mastered proportions and the basic skeleton, you're ready to move onto the mannequin. Each step is important, and you shouldn't skip ahead until you've mastered the one's before it.

23:31

Continuing the manneguin lessons.

32:07

In this lesson, we will cover what makes human figures look 3D, and how to shade and light a figure with basic principles.

26:31

It is important to master poses with the basic mannequin before moving onto learning anatomy/muscles, so we will do that now.

37:45

More on Poses.

34:25

After you have mastered drawing the mannequin in different poses, it's time to learn anatomy.

37:34

Continuing with male anatomy.

28:52

Continuing male anatomy.

21:24

This is the same as the male version, but in these lessons you will be learning female anatomy.

17:31

Continuing female anatomy.

20:22

Continuing female anatomy.

26:06

After learning everything from the stick man to anatomy, it's time to learn manga, a Japanese style of comics. Really, it just comes down to exagerated anatomy, same with cartoons. Once you have mastered the human figure, this will be easy. :)

15:11

Continuing manga, but this time the male.

32:01

After we have mastered everything else, it's time to tackle difficult poses. These are the poses that have you draw through a character and have foreshotening.

19:51

Continuing with difficult poses.

37:17

Continuing with difficult poses.

31:37

Continuing difficult poses.

19:15

In this lesson we will go over how to draw comic figures, both male and female.

20:16

Continuing comics.

14:09

Continuing comics.

32:16

I decided to cover breast seperately because they really do have their own mechanics that are worth learning. Think of them as water balloons attached to the body. In fact, study a water balloon setting against a wall, and you have a good idea of how a breast works.

Instructor Biography

Neil Fontaine, Art Instructor-Comic Artist-writer

I'm a best selling author on Amazon for "How to Draw Awesome Figures."

I studied art at different schools, one of them being a community college in San Jose, Ca. Over the years, subjects in art finally clicked. I teach these subjects in ways that make it easy to grasp. It's hard to brag about myself, but students have written me emails saying how they have learned more from me than they did in art schools, art schools such as Academy of Arts in San Franscico. That blew my mind because it's supposed to be a great school.

I'm also a writer that has sold novels. http://masteredit.info
