Full-Length Video Tutorials
As a member of Let’s Draw People Club, you will have access to a growing collection of full-length video tutorials. Videos are organized by series, and each series focuses on one reference photograph as its subject.
Once per week, I will release a new video recording as a continuation of the current series or as the beginning of a brand new series.
Each recorded video will be available for streaming or download. You can access the recordings whenever you want!
The duration of each video varies, but the average duration of each video is about 2 hours.
I like to think of these tutorials as a “paint-by-numbers” approach, even though we are drawing and not painting (haha)! Step-by-step, I show you every pencil stroke with thorough explanations of what I’m doing and why I’m doing it.
The learning curve is expedited because there are multiple skills being applied to a single drawing series. You can then take what you learned from that drawing series and apply it to similar drawings and portrait subjects of your choosing.
The full-length video tutorials are designed for you to draw right along with me or to use as a resource when you need specific help drawing a particular feature or using a certain technique.
Draw along with me at your own pace. Pause, back up, or skip ahead whenever you need to. If you watch and draw a completed 6-week series, you get to decide if you want to complete the drawing in 6 weeks, 12 weeks, or 1 week!
You will get full access to downloadable, high-resolution reference photographs, grids I use for each series, and even reference photos with grids already in place. For each drawing series that uses the grid method, I also teach you my step-by-step method for setting up the grid for that drawing, so you will gain the knowledge to apply the same techniques to any future reference photograph and drawing you may choose to do on your own.
Each video is accompanied with a sequenced list of what is discussed or demonstrated, along with what time the topic starts in the video. Furthermore, you can click on the time and go straight to that part of the video to find precisely the help you need.
Currently in the Full-Length Video Tutorials area of the membership, there are 3 complete series and 18 high-definition videos totaling over 35 hours of instruction and demonstration!
Here are just a few of the many topics that I cover step-by-step in great detail throughout the course of the video tutorials currently available:
- Create a grid over a digital photograph.
- Create perfectly parallel and perpendicular grid lines on drawing paper.
- Create a drawing paper grid that disappears after the drawing with no erasing.
- Draw realistic eyes, eyebrows, and eyelashes.
- Draw a realistic nose.
- Draw teeth in the proper shape and size relative to the subject.
- Draw realistic hair.
- Draw and shade wrinkles in the skin.
- Draw realistic hands with detailed knuckles and fingernails.
- Properly use highlights, reflected light, cast shadows and other values for realistic shading.
- Draw without a grid using plot points and other observational methods.
Membership in LDP Club includes a weekly email notification about the availability of new full-length video tutorials. In addition, new members who are not already receiving the Let’s Draw People Newsletter will get access to that too! This newsletter lets subscribers know about new free tutorials and articles available on the website, as well as other resources not found on the website.
Work at Your Own Pace
For all of the current and future content that makes up the LDP Club, there is no pressure. You are free to work at your own pace. You do not have to watch all of the videos and complete all of the drawing tutorials if you do not want to or do not have the time.
LDP Club is designed to be flexible and fit your schedule. How much or how little you complete is totally up to you. Of course, your results will be comparable to the amount of time and effort you contribute, so the more you are able to complete, the better!
You have two options when purchasing a membership in Let’s Draw People Club:
Option #1: Try it out for one week for $1, then pay $7 per month.
Option #2: Try it out for one week for $1, then pay $57 per year.
Why only $7 per month or $57 per year?
I wanted to create a high-value, affordable resource for anyone wishing to get better at drawing people. Whether you aspire to have a future career as a portrait artist or you only aspire to impress your friends, I didn’t want price to hold you back from getting the additional help and support you need.
Like I mentioned earlier, LDP Club is a new and evolving member resource, so the amount of value found within an LDP Club membership will only continue to expand. The goal is to always keep the price of LDP Club low and affordable. However, after the amount of content grows significantly larger, a small price hike cannot be ruled out. Those people who join now during the early stages will not be affected if prices do eventually go up for new members.
Your LDP Club membership will last for as long as you are a paying subscriber, so you’ll have many opportunities and lots of time to improve your drawing abilities and get value as a member.
If you join LDP Club and decide for whatever reason that it just is not for you, simply request a refund within the first 30 days of your membership, and we’ll refund your money.
