As students continue to develop a basic skill set throughout this course, a special emphasis will be placed on the understanding and application of those basics to the human figure. This course will emphasize a process based approach focusing on the analysis of form, construction, and perspective. This course will offer an in depth study of the figure and the surface anatomy while always maintaining a grounding in the artistic and principles of design.

By gaining some understanding on anatomy, I was able to overall improve my figure drawing. As a story and concept artist, this course was a good investment. Thank you.
I have gained more confidence and my anatomy drawings look much better. I can also draw from a reference without relying too heavily on it now.
Ron Lemen is a tremendous source of information. He really knows his stuff, and he gives good critiques. Also special commendation for getting all the feedback videos in before the Q&As.
Rey is the best teacher I have ever had. The effort he puts is inspiring. I feel like he really has made a massive difference to my learning. I understand so much more. So good!
I have been trying to learn anatomy by myself for some time now, and I feel that Ron’s course helped me to finally grasp a lot about anatomy! Everything finally made sense!
