    Online classes for traditional drawing?

    Hello again all you badass artists!

    I generally dislike working under a teacher (lifelong authority issues), and I'm having trouble finding a good online course that teaches one how to draw the human body/portraits in the traditional style; you know, like Ingres and Prudhon and stuff.

    I'm especially interested in the drawing mediums - graphite, charcoal, etc.

    My primary concerns are shading, creating textures, hair, etc. of course anatomy.

    I've found that I learn best by simply watching experts draw. For example on youtube there a lot of helpful "speed drawing" tutorials, but most are too fast and often have POOR video quality.

    I don't mind paying.

    Thanks 4 any recommendations!

    Have you tried looking at any of the avaliable On Demand stuff from Conceptart.org? Or the Discovery Series they have currently on sale? They're great and they also help support the running of the site, so it's a win-win.

    If you're interested in some reading, I'd check out James Gurney's online blog

    http://gurneyjourney.blogspot.com/

    If that is also not your cup of tea, you could take a look at cgtalk's store, they have the gnomon series of dvds. Most of those are for digital, but I believe there are some traditional instructions as well.

    There's also the option of taking part in the drawings - There is a group on here and on other sites called the Crimson Daggers run by our very own Dave Rapozza. You could check that out and watch his drawing and the guests he has on as well.

    Thank you for your recommendations!

    Of the recommendations so far, David Kassan's DVD is closer to what I had in mind (video tutorials of classical drawing) - but $99 is a ridiculous price for a 3 hour DVD, I dare say!

    Well, good luck to you in trying to find something which will so comprehensively teach you what you want to know, for less.

    I don't know about that. After the cost of hiring cinematographers, (who themselves must cover the cost of employees and the thousands of dollars worth of equipment they have to schlep around) an editor to cut/refine/compile the final product, a designer to create the interior and exterior DVD artwork, a company to actually produce the finished DVDs, and a distribution company to mail the things out, 99 dollars starts to sound pretty cheap.

    That's not even factoring in the amount of prep work one would have to go through to construct what is essentially a three hour class. And, in this case, a class that probably had to be done in one or as few takes as possible. (again, cinematographers don't come cheap, and I'm willing to bet they charge by the hour) All that time is worth something.
