Learn to Draw Step by Step Through my YouTube Tutorials



Learn to Draw Step by Step

This is the most popular series of videos that I have on my YouTube channel (kazanjianm). These videos teach a simple skill that is very difficult to master; how to break a complex image down in to simple shapes, and render it on a piece of paper. 

The diffuculty of the videos in this series varies. If you are brand new at drawing, I recommend that you try the eyes, ears and nose videos at the bottom. It is an excellent starting point. - Merrill

Human Body Proportion For Artists

Why is knowing human proportion important? Knowing how the human body fits together is one of the essential topics for any artist who wishes to draw from his/her "head" (from memory). My step by step videos (above) will teach you how to observe an image and break it down in to simple shapes. But my proportion series, teaches the opposite. It is the "yang" to the "ying" of my step by step series. No artist is complete without mastering BOTH! This video will give you simple and easy to remember formulas to learn the proportions of the human body. I worked VERY HARD on this!!!!! It is #1 in search on YouTube and I think it deserves that! -Merrill
