Reilly Method Figure Drawing

We are pleased to share with you a 10-week long class brought to you by Art Mentors. In this class, legendary illustrator Mark Westermoe teaches figure drawing using the Reilly Method. In this 6th lesson, Mark will go over the Reilly Head Abstraction in detail and analyze selected master works of Matania. He will then demonstrate how to design the hands, first by laying in the structure, and then by refining the design through tonal and value control.
