"Thank you so much for the last video critique. I really learned a ton. Makes me wonder what I would do without this site. One of the best investments I've ever made. "

Priscilla Taylor

"This is so cool! I've learned more in ten minutes watching and listening to this than all the other drawing classes I've taken...you explain and demonstrate everything so well that it makes sense to a complete novice (is complete novice an oxymoron?)...can't wait to practice!"

Anita Van Hal

"I'm way impressed with your style of teaching as well as your awesome work. I can say that your website is easily well worth more! To bad for me that I live in Detroit and can't take your classes directly. Your site is truly the next best thing though. Please accept my virtual hug and pat on the back. You really deserve it. Thanks for being there for everybody. You are truly an inspiration Matt!"

I admire your teaching style, your quips, gestures, and the PRICELESS tidbits of info you share while drawing... more than words mate... more than words! Your DTO site gives me a reason to look forward to each day while doing something that I love. Thank you from my heart to yours."

"I am a new member into week two. Just wanted to thank you for the excellent instruction. I also received the Cast Drawing DVD, for which I thank you. I am working everyday on my drawing. Following the program you recommend for beginners seems to be working for me. The skeleton really has helped me to make some progress on my gesture drawings which are the most difficult for me. I will upload some drawings soon. Thanks again for all the effort you are putting into this website. It is truly professional and quite effective."

Karen Gale
Spring Hill, FL

How To Draw The Figure From Your Memory Sample Clip

We just added a whole new series that will teach how to draw the figure from your memory. In this short sample clip we show you how to combine the rough skeleton with gesture line. Drawing the rough skeleton is your foundation to executing a solid figure drawing from your memory. In this step two we show you how to combine both key anatomical features as well as key gestural elements. The idea is to draw anatomy, gesture and movement all at the same time. Subscribe now to get the whole kit and Ka Boodle. Thanks for watching.
