By popular demand, we decided to focus our tenth episode on the old masters.

Why are the old masters so revered, even in this day and age? Is there still a lot to learn from the old masters? How can we learn from them? We discuss all these topics and more – I hope you enjoy it.

We talk a bit about concept artists during the episode, and we’re referring to the artists that do the character design for movies and games, create landscapes and so on. They are often the creative minds behind the stunning visuals in much popular culture.

To build a solid foundation of life drawing skills, have a look at our new online course Draw Life Beautifully: The Fundamentals of Life Drawing Every Student Should Know

    Great podcast!
    Kim Jung Gi is one of the greatest living draughtsman ive ever seen. He draws directly with a pen, without using any reference. No procedure involved. Most draughtsmen work from general to specific (action>volume>detail) but he does it all at the same time and has a enormous visual library to boot!

    Thank you for another wonderful podcast.

    You have peaked my interest in silverpoint drawings. I hear you can do them on stone paper without needing to put down a ground, although making a ground (gouache, gum arabic + water) is not very involved. I am excited to try it.

    Thank you again.
