This tutorial will give you the contrast and realism you've been wanting - regardless of the subject
You'll learn the key elements necessary to make any drawing look realistic. Without this foundation, many artists never improve beyond a
certain point because they are missing important knowledge that would
make all the difference in the world in their drawing ability. It’s
kind of like trying to understand an advanced math class before you
grasp the concepts of beginning algebra.
Over 4 1/2 hours of instruction, demos, and step by step exercises.
18 detailed lessons - with downloadable pdf reference photos and lesson highlights.
Membership discounts on future tutorials and much, much more!
NOTE: If you have seen the 35 minute video that is included with my pencil kit,
this is NOT the same tutorial.
Although I explain all the
tools I use in the kit, there are over 4 more hours of lessons in this
Comments From Students Who Have Taken This Training
"I have to tell you that I’ve purchased all of your tutorials, including including the realistic eye video. I have enjoyed and learned so much from
them. I am in awe of your work and am hopeful to make it to one of the
live drawing workshops in the near future, as well as meeting you in
person. Thanks once again!"

"This is the real deal. I've looked at the 5 pencil method from Darrel Tank, I've learned some technique, and been pleased with the results. Same with Lee Hammond. But what i most like about JD is his ability to get more detail
into the work. More punch. In his 4 and a half hour course, you will walk away
with more stuff than you can appreciate!"

"A lot of art classes are "here, draw this." JD Demonstrates how to achieve the
effect all artists want to know - how to create the illusion of 3-d
on a flat surface."

"Within the first 2-3 hours, I learned more than I had ever believed possible. This is stuff that would have taken me years to figure out on my

Thanks again! Wow! This new video tutorial is FABULOUS! I have only
viewed the first clip so far but it is amazing. That is the best money I've
spent in a long time!
"I have some training in drawing, so this is not all new to me, but I’ve already picked up a couple of excellent points and I’m only part way through the course. I am particularly grateful that the course is not long drawn out sessions of “watch me draw”, but well organized and meaningful material that I'll be able to apply."
"It has been over 19 years since I was serious about art. I joined the Military right after high school and left art behind me. Recently, I decided to start drawing again as a stress relief and a way to encourage my children to bring out their artistic abilities. I thought that picking up drawing again would be easy like riding a bike; however, that has not been the case, so I started watching YouTube videos to help improve my drawing abilities but none have been as useful as your online tutorial Realistic Drawing With Light Texture And Contrast. I was going to just buy the hair video but I figured I would give this one a go - and I’m glad I did. I wish I would have come across this tutorial first before my last portrait and the one I’m currently on. Thank you for your time and I look forward to purchasing more tutorials."
