transforming hundreds & hundreds of students into professionals since 2004

 Welcome back!

Did you do your homework?

All of it?


Drawing this way probably feels a little different than what you’re used to.

BUT, this really is a simple small thing that can really make the biggest difference.

That’s the step-by-step approach I take with students just like you.

You start small, learn that skill and then move forward. 

That’s how you grow over time to master drawing.

Let’s combine a new skill with the previous one to help take your drawings even further.

Make Your Drawings Feel 3D

Don’t look at the PreTest! You’ll ruin the surprise.

DO go get some paper and a sharpened pencil.

Watch the video, follow along, and then do the homework below!

Play Video

That was easy, right?

Especially now that you know how to hold a pencil.

Your first try won’t be perfect, mine never are, but…they’ll be a lot better than before.

You’ll feel a little unsteady at first, which is very common.

Later on, like all my students, you will forget that you ever lacked the ability to make a confident line.

Drawing like this will become perfectly natural.

Just by knowing these tools exist make it a lot easier to see that you can draw anything at all with them.

Even from a single simple, short video.

Combine and multiply them and over time and you’ll go even further.

Really, no talent required!

By the way, my favorite definition of talent is:

“Talent is just another word for the love of a thing.”

    • What kind of change is possible for you?
    • What’s something you’ve improved at over time and how did you know you improved?
  • Look at the everyday simple objects around you and sketch them as 3D Primitives using the ideas you learned today. Try and fill 3 pages with these sketches. If it helps, go back and review this lesson and the previous one!
  • Remember to share your project activities on Instagram with the hashtag #myartprofessor, so I can see it!
  • Follow my instagrams RainlandStudios, PeterSakievich, & MyArtProfessor
