About This Class

The majority of our improvement comes from the time we spend practicing on our own time. Most of us are no stranger to the idea that it takes 10,000 hours to become a master of something. What many of us aren't aware of is that those 10,000 hours must be quality as well. That's where this course comes in.

After going through these videos and trying the routine out yourself you will have a tool to ensure that every time you sit down to draw you are getting better!


What you'll learn:

  • A 30 minute drawing routine that can be applied to learning to draw anything
  • The ability to tailor the routine to be any length that you want
  • How to draw from reference photos so that you aren't just copying but actually learning
  • How to test your abilities to get confirmation that you're improving
  • How to create a habit out of drawing

This is an easy yes as I liked the approach.
This is a great course if you're really not sure how to build up your drawing skills. I always struggle with exercises/drills I can do on my own to improve and Hayden does a great job laying out a structured practice routine and goes into great detail explaining why each step is important and what you can learn from it. Definitely recommend this course.
I have always been comfortable drawing from reference no matter the subject, however, I have NEVER been good or confident about drawing from memory. Running through this class to give it a once over has shown me how I can make this possible. Looking forward to setting aside some time to put you're advice into practice.

Think of it as optimizing your artistic development ;)
