What Sets This Course Apart from Others?

In his sculptural Dirk breaks down the drawing into several layers where he only works on one element at a time. This makes each step much easier!

Start by setting the main mid-tones. Then, add the bigger shapes and smaller shapes on top of them to give the picture a three-dimensional look, even before you start drawing the details. Keep building up the tones and add the details last. A set of tools makes this quick and easy. With the right plan and tools, it's easier to "attack" every part of a drawing. 

  • Dirk shows you the importance of mid tones, and how to easily identify and draw the correct tones.
  • Graphite pencils are always grey - you will learn how to draw in full range from white to black to add amazing depth to your drawings.
  • How to reduce the typical graphite sheen.
  • Use the shown techniques in your own drawings to create stunning photorealistic drawings easier and faster than before.
