Anatomy for Figure Drawing

Mastering the Human Figure

Do you want to be a professional comic artist, concept artist, or storyboard artist, etc?

Then you need to be able to draw the human figure quickly. Most artists can’t do this because …

They never learned Anatomy for Figure drawing.

My course teaches you anatomy for figure drawing in an easy to understand way, but don’t take my word for it.

Scroll down and watch some of the free lectures. I offer a few hours free so you can see that my teaching style is for you.

In this course, you will learn the basics of proportions, and how to simplify the skeleton. You will learn the draw the skeleton and learn where all the muscles attach, which is key to drawing figures from imagination. You will learn a simplified muscle map, simplified mannequin and more.

You will even learn how muscles change when in different poses. You will also learn where fat builds up, and all the different body types. This is the last and only anatomy for figure drawing and comics you will ever need. Money back guarantee, upheld by Udemy’s high standards.

I also have bonus videos, like how to draw breasts and a quick sculpting of the human video.

This is a huge course, but well worth the time. 65 hours, but ...

you are ready to draw figures like a pro, so simply scroll down and watch some of the free videos.

We analyzed reviews for this course to surface learners' thoughts about it

so far in 38 reviews

I've been trying to learn figure drawing for some time, and so far I am getting the grips with this topic.

So far, I have enjoyed this course.

like it very much so far :) First lesson done and I’ve already learned more about drawing anatomy than all the books and courses I’ve previously gone through.

I bought one of the instructor's previous courses and really didn't like it so I was skeptical about this course, but so far this course is amazing.

I'm not too far in yet, but I've had a wonderful experience with what I've seen so far.

Enjoying it very much so far.

Ótimas explicações, gostaria que outros cursos do autor tivessem legenda em português ou espanhol I like it so far, but i feel like the videos tend to have some dead time.

I just like it so far Толково и все что надо.

easy to follow in 24 reviews

Very detailed and easy to follow.

Its great and he is probably the best anatomy teacher on here he makes everything simple and easy to follow.

Other than that the lesson was great, he made it easy to follow along, understand, and grasp the content.

It’s easy to follow along This rating is relative to the quality of courses I have seen on Udemy.

Though he talks a bit fast, I find it easy to follow.

It is helpful being able to watch someone and follow at the same time, aided by the fact that the course (or at least what I have seen so far) has a steady, easy to follow pacing.

Pretty neat techniques pretty good first impression and easy to follow and understand I honestly think that it will take a while to do the muscles because i'm already having troubles drawing the bones but i'm sure that this will benefit me in the future!

It's easy to follow, yet you'll get information overload at times from him describing how certain things connect.

step by step in 10 reviews

Really simplistic and easy-to-follow step by step guide that really helped me understand the basics of the human skeleton.

Stay on track and do step by steps like we are.

If you want to learn about anatomy, this is the way I didn't know I could draw humans until this course - THANK YOU course clearly has a defined structure, is incredibly easy to follow as instructor provides step by step guide.

I have personally found this far more useful than any book I have used, as it has given me a step by step method of breaking down the human body and measuring correct proportions, which is something I have previously struggled with.

The instructor took time to explain everything step by step.

The instructor explains everything clearly and I love how he shows everything step by step and draws with you.

You must do the work to be successful and this does a great job at encouraging you to follow step by step.

I love how this is broken down step by step.

recommend this course in 9 reviews

I highly recommend this course for those who want to improve their anatomy skills, especially character designers.

like now I understand how everything works :D I do recommend this course to everyone but sure you must have patience :) So far clarifies some existing concepts from books but useful to see some one in action with their memnonics.

I highly recommend this course for anyone weither they're drawing comics or just want to understand how to draw human body correctly.

I recommend this course, just helps to have a grain or two of patience.

Thank you I bought this course 2 years ago and what can i recommend to anyone who wants to draw figures on mind is study with 3D objects not from a course like this.And this course is hella boring i don't know if anyone could finish it.Just study with 3D muscles & bones and you can try Proko too.I don't recommend this course at all.

Aside from that, I highly recommend this course (especially for those interested in creating detailed fighting game styled sprites).

I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn figure drawing and how to draw the human body or face from imagination (without a reference eventually).

I recommend this course (or any course by this instructor) without any reservation.

draw along with in 8 reviews

Sometimes it feels a little repetitive and dragging, but it is the right speed to draw along with the instructor.

Really great to learn this easy way to build the human form I am really enjoying the detailed explanation and the fact that you insist we draw along with you because it is easier to draw along than trying alone while building those neural networks.

It's not sped up or anything, and being able to draw along with him is very productive.

The only neg is that i watched and draw - dont watch draw along with the videos - the whole course at 1.25 speed.

No joke, try to count how many times he says "neural network" or reiterates how important it is to draw along with him, the number will be higher than you think.

A simple and methodical yet comprehensive approach, done at a relaxed speed which allows you to keep up and take it all in, and draw along with the lesson without missing anything.

There is enough time for you to draw along without having to pause and rewind the video multiple times.

You are encouraged to draw along with him as he demonstrate techniques.

talking about in 8 reviews

You can tell he is a pro and has a lot of knowledge on what he is talking about.

very easy to follow and having fun doing it :) Very in depth nice job Good information, though the quality comes down as the instructor spends around 30% of the “proportions” lesson talking about repetition in practice.

Understandably this is an important element, however the time spent talking about the subject seems to border on filler and often drowns out the good information while you are trying to commit it to memory.

Instructor seems to know what he is talking about, but he is repeating himself a lot which is a bit boring.

Kinda wish he'd have reference up next to his drawings, so that you could compare the two and really see what he's talking about.

Neil gets distracted while teaching or, while teaching, starts about different things than he was just talking about.

First, I must say, this man knows what he is talking about.

The instructor clearly knows what he's talking about, but at times I feel as though he gets ahead of himself, and then has to back track to the topic at hand.
