Jack has been a practicing and exhibiting fine artist and freelance illustrator for over 35 years. He has taught drawing and painting at Cornell University, College of New Rochelle, University of Southern California, Otis College of Art and Design, Gnomon School of Visual Effects, and Woodbury University, to name a few institutions. He did background painting briefly at Hanna-Barbera and was hired as a trainer in Feature Animation at Disney in 1995. In 1999, he continued as a training consultant to Disney and taught at various institutions until he was hired to set up an Animation Department at Woodbury University, which he chaired for three years. He retired two years ago after eight years at Woodbury, as Professor Emeritus.

In this second part of the Drawing the Figure series, Jack explores the properties of structure. Here, he introduces the basic elements required to create the illusion of 3-Dimensional space and form as they apply to the human figure. By constructing simple forms, exploring overlap and translating the complexity of the human body into its simplest, most basic forms, we can begin to understand the process of converting a 3-Dimensonal, real world form onto a flat, 2-Dimensional surface that an observer can understand. Jack will demonstrate how to see the forms and draw through them without losing the gestural quality described in his first DVD.

This lecture is the first of a series on how to approach drawing the human figure. In this series, Jack states that a successful figure drawing must include evidence of three sets of information: gestural, structural, and anatomical; the first being the focus of this particular demonstration. Gesture drawing establishes the unique storytelling and emotional properties of a given pose. It can also be used to map out the essential idea conveyed in the pose. Jack explores rapid-sketch technique, weight distribution, and the rhythm of the body parts as they adjust to the effects of gravity. Key concepts such as "contrapposto", twist, overlapping shapes, and foreshortening are also covered. In short, this lecture will show you how to create a dynamic, lively interpretation of the subject being observed.

The ultimate goal for the concept artist is to create an individual artistic design language that is unique to them. Nick’s demo takes the viewer through the process he uses to get as close to this goal as possible. The ephemeral nature of this subject is discussed within the framework of historical context. Inspiration sources and methods for cleansing the mind and body are shown, and a hands-on process is demonstrated. Over 140 pages of sketches lead to 6 pencil rendered images that define a novel look and form that can be applied to a wide variety of designed objects.

Syd's first DVD introduces the student to the principles of creating thumbnail sketches and subsequent line drawings in the process of creating a successful composition. Topics illustrated include establishing value using only shades of black, and then using those shades to identify levels of detail in the composition, including vehicles, architecture, people and foliage. He guides the viewer through the process of choosing appropriate camera angles, and determining the geometry of the image. Syd goes through the process of defining proportion, the horizon line, the vanishing point, perspective and the ground plane, resulting in a series of sketches ready for further development.

This comprehensive introduction to animal anatomy is for artists who want to draw authentic-looking animals from their imagination. Marshall demonstrates that the core of this skill is in knowing animal bones and muscles, constructing them as three-dimensional forms, and practicing these disciplines until they become easy enough to let your impulses take over. He uses hundreds of drawings to show the major components of various animals, how their anatomy works, and how to draw them so that they look anatomically authentic, solid and alive. 3D artists looking to enhance their understanding of basic animal form and motion will also benefit from Marshall's presentation.

Drawing the head can be the most challenging aspect of figure drawing. In this tutorial, Van Arno addresses common mistakes and provides tips to keep features in proportion. He demonstrates two methods of tackling facial symmetry in perspective, and works up to long poses using each of these methods.

A solid understanding of Perspective gives the artist the means to draw what they see both accurately and believably. This series on the Fundamentals of Perspective will provide artists with the understanding of not only the concepts but also put them into practice as Illustration master Gary Meyer takes you through each exercise. In this lecture titled Fundamentals of Perspective 2: Two-Point Principles and Concepts, we continue the discussion with an overview of Two-Point Perspective. Gary discusses methods of measuring and plotting scale correctly in two-point perspective by first discussing ways to transfer scale correctly, then using those techniques, he demonstrates how to correctly draw from plans and elevation diagrams. Gary then demonstrates how to plot various surfaces like ellipses and incline surfaces in perspective. Lastly, he discusses concepts dealing with auxiliary vanishing points, the cone of vision and using both one and two point perspective correctly in a drawing.

In this series, Marc Gabbana walks you through his visual development process as he creates the TribalBot, a forest dwelling robotic vehicle. In this second volume, he begins by adding tone to his pen drawings using Adobe Photoshop. Marc demonstrates how to work with values and shading, and he shares his methodology for layer management. He also shows you which custom brushes he uses as he adds dimension to his designs. Through his gray scale paintings, Marc emphasizes how value, composition and lighting are all integral for creating drama and mood in a scene..
