Beautiful realist study of a male life model’s face for Kassan’s art class in NYC. Sped up to replicate the actual two hour study you can see where Kassan begins with very crude dark block filling with his charcoal. He introduces finer detailing with the charcoal and then the pencil. The face quickly takes shape and you begin to admire just how good he really is. His final touches include the use of a white pencil for highlights and tints to bring out some of the key features. A pure class video on how to draw like a realist.
As with the majority of Mark Crilley’s videos he uses pre sketched characters, which then enables him to spend more time on the subject that he is teaching.
The topic here is drawing glasses. Mark first of all starts to draw the glasses on the male character and offers a few tips to help you with the shape. Oval glasses are being drawn and to aid you, Mark suggests that you could use a pair of real glasses to get the shape right, as the shapes are often an area that people struggle with.
He then moves on to the female who he draws square glasses on a shape that is taken from his other Manga characters. If drawing Manga is an area that you are already interested in or having seen this video may want to see more of Mark Crilley teaching how to draw other characters or features on them, then please review the other videos on this site or share it with anyone else who may be interested.

The tattoo undertaken in this video appears to be of an underwater animal, possibly a squid. It has the wave detailing found in a lot of Japanese style tattooing. The tattoo artist is very skillful and quite funny actually but is the young lad’s lip giving away just how painful he is finding it. A great video to watch to show the true gritty nature of the tattoo business.
Expert artist Liberace puts this video together to show the aspiring pencil artist just how important it is to take in all the features you see on the human body. Here he is drawing a male life model pulling on a rope and his aim using a combination of cross hatch shading and blending with a brush shows how the muscles and motion in the figure can be accentuated. He explains how you will never fully achieve perfection but it is important to note everything which is going on in what you are studying. Great artwork which does truly show motion and action within the human form.
In this tutorial the artist uses a variety of mediums including, watercolor, pencil, pen, charcoal and acrylic to compose a painting which through male and female interaction and an explosion of colors shows the eternal denial which we as humans possess and take through life with us.
The painting is time lapsed but offers a fantastic insight into how a painting consisting of various layers and different mediums in undertaken from the beginning to the end. The artist begins with a medium sized rounded brush making sure all the major areas of the male face are covered but it is her use of vivid colors and intentional application with the inks and watercolors which allow the painting to take form very quickly. Further dousing with a larger sized round brush takes her into the corners and surrounding areas of the male and female face with yet more striking colors which starts to tie the painting together with marvellous consistency and intention.
She achieves her finer detailing through the use of watercolor crayons, pencil crayons and pen but it is the way she keeps her style loose and breezy by navigating evenly around the page which allows for her painting to retain a feeling of completeness. This is a great tutorial to learn from and a fine example of how a whole wealth of mediums can come together in harmony with the right application and composition.
In this video Crilley satisfies a viewer’s request by demonstrating how to draw hands in two different ways. He adopts a boxing in style to get the basic geometrics sorted before he goes on to adding details like knuckles and palms etc. One hand is male and the other is female, so the selection is there for you. Good narration as you come to expect with Crilley as he guides you through his drawing tutorials.
This video shows with the help of an awesome soundtrack the highs and lows of a guy named Dave receiving his first tattoo by a female tattoo artist. Well if you ask me he has gone pretty much in at the deep end with the region in where he has had done. The tattoo looks great though of the skull and wings and I think Dave should be very happy with his new inked up look!
This is a nice general video for beginner’s to follow and discusses the basics of drawing the male form and it’s proportions.
Generally speaking the average body is 8 heads tall, so with this in mind that is the first thing to remember when ascertaining the height for your person you are drawing. The artist uses a ruler to mark off 8 spaces to mimic the head theory down her paper and then draws a series of horizontal lines to suggest the different proportions of the human figure.
With clear and concise easy to follow voice over descriptions you are guided through the video picking up all the basic techniques as you go along, so why not grab a pencil and have a go yourself.
This is a live unedited sped up video of artist Zimou Tan painting. The painting is of young male and in my humble opinion I think it is absolutely beautiful. his technique is very block-like with his application but as the video goes on you begin to see how he applies the details with the smaller paint brushes. The music is highly appropriate also which makes for a thoroughly enjoyable 8 minutes of master class oil painting. Sit back and enjoy.
A well crafted piece guiding the viewer through the methods used to construct a male Anime character.

The use of written instructions adds a further touch of personalisation and rapport between the artist and the viewer.
