"First let me say that this is a really comprehensive course for beginning to draw and for super techniques to use. I have learned a lot and can already see much improvement in my drawing" - Xina

"I thoroughly enjoyed 'Drawing From Scratch' course. It was very informative and easy to follow. Tom is a great Tutor, he explains everything in great simple detail and demonstrates the various techniques via the online modules. I would highly recommend this course for absolute beginners, but also for people who haven't picked up a pencil in years and would like a refresher in the basic techniques of drawing, such as tonal value and perspective." - Twiglet142

"I just love your youtube tutorials and I was really thrilled when I saw this course, because that's exactly what I need. What makes your tutorials and this course special for me is that I can follow each and every step, no gaps where I'm wondering what happened in between. Of course I still need lots of practice, but at least I know what to practice!" -Kerstin

SECTION ONE


In the first section of this course you'll learn how to start a drawing from scratch, how to use thumbnails, how to see and record 2D and 3D shapes and how to use the three essential shadows.

SECTION TWO


In SECTION TWO we focus on tonal values. I show you how to see the tonal value of a colour, how to draw a flat tone and a graded tone. We explore how to use a Tonal Key and then draw a tonal landscape sketch.

SECTION THREE


We consider what lines are. I show you exactly how to draw a straight line and then we explore drawing some different types of line. We also look at how lines can express emotions and depict shapes.

SECTION FOUR


An introduction to basic shapes. We explore how to simplify complex things into basic shapes. We look at how to use negative shapes and how to draw shapes in space.

SECTION FIVE


An introduction to 1-point and 2-point perspective. I show you how to choose the right perspective technique to use, where to place vanishing points and how to find perspective in a photograph.
