With this drawing instruction DVD you will learn to draw as David N. Kitler shows you how to us basic shapes, locate important value shifts, understand the role of different pencil grades to create depth, locate and accurately plot objects on a page, and properly position the parts of any object, be it animal or plant, to relate to the whole. David combines these fundamentals of how to draw with confidence to help you develop a center of interest and to lead viewers' eyes around your composition.
In this 3-DVD set, you’ll start with how to create an accurate layout — and how to train yourself to see. Then, follow along as Darrel shows you how to take the skills you learned in “Core Concepts and Exercises” to draw an entire portrait from start to finish.

I wanted to make neuroanatomy simple, so I wrote Neuroanatomy: Draw it to Know it during my Neurology Residency at Wash U 10 years ago, which I was fortunate to have Oxford University Press publish. However, the process of reinterperating neuroanatomy through noiseless diagrams taught me that to "keep it simple, stupid" is anything but easy.
Drawing is one of humanity’s oldest forms of expression, with existing examples dating back an astonishing 80,000 years or more. Older than written language by tens of thousands of years, drawing developed across millennia, forming the base of many of the world’s artistic traditions.
