Figure Drawing & Anatomy Premium Track

Learn the fundamentals of drawing the human figure by developing a base knowledge of human anatomy. Whether your focus is painting, character design, comics, or illustration, anatomy is an enormously useful skill to have as an artist. You’ll have the option to draw with either digital or traditional drawing media to explore the structures of the human figure, while developing skills in both quick gesture drawings and sustained drawings. The curriculum we will use is from Prof Lieu’s Anatomy for Artists lectures.

Here is your opportunity to work with guidance and comprehensive support from Prof Lieu and the Art Prof staff. Working on your own can be challenging to pace yourself, know what direction to go in, and what skills you’ll need.

Free Track vs. Premium Track

The free track and premium track use the same curriculum. The Anatomy for Artists lectures are available for free; you can learn by yourself at your own pace.

The difference is that the premium track provides guidance and support through weekly voice sessions and critiques from the Art Prof staff.

About our Staff

Prof Lieu and Teaching Artist Alex Rowe have many years of experience both drawing and painting the human figure in both a fine art and illustration context.

We’ll kick your butt (if you want us to that is) and keep you on task as you develop your figure drawing skills.

Art Supplies

We understand that many people have limited budgets for supplies, so our premium tracks are structured so that you can use any materials you want, within that track’s focus.

For example, if you are doing the Painting Premium Track, you could choose any paint media: watercolorgouacheacryl gouacheacrylicoilswater mixable oilsink wash, etc. We provide a supply list with recommended supplies for each paint media and are happy to provide further support, but you can work with whatever you have! Same with digital software: you can use ProcreatePhotoshopKrita, whatever you have access to.
