Great Fundamentals Course

I took this class as a sort of a precursor to Jake's "How to Ink" course which I was interested in taking in preparation for Inktober next month, to get an idea of how the classes worked. I am of an intermediate experience level so a lot of the in...

Very helpful review of some fundamental visual, mental and physical skills to hone until they become instinct and allow you to draw more effectively from scratch. Even if you think you've heard it before or know it already, the exercises and lect...

This was my first course with you guys, and I loved it! Took me two afternoons to complete it and I feel I learned a lot. Great way to start too. SVS, I think I'll stick around for long! :)

I really enjoy the drawings by Jake Parker and having him teach me some of the tricks he uses really was as special as I thought it would be.

I really enjoyed the cutting shapes section of this course. I don't recall ever going over that stuff in art school, so it was refreshing to work on those exercises in particular. I admire Jake's style and truly enjoy his courses.

For the most part, this course refreshed my mind on a lot of the fundamental things that are required in art such as breaking down complex objects into simple shapes like cubes and spheres. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who wants ...

I enjoyed drawing when I was younger, but didn't take any classes in high school. I decided to take a beginning arts class in college, but the teacher's approach was not welcoming. I got discouraged if I could really draw. I put my dreams of becom...

A great demonstration of how to build upon the basic shapes. I know that it seems tedious, and less fun than jumping right in and drawing zombies and unicorns, but it's SO helpful in the long run.

I could not figure out what I was missing and this cleared up everything. I appreciate that Peter explained the "why" behind the fundamentals and supplied constructive, simple, time efficient, practice strategies. I've taken multiple art courses i...

I loved this course! I already knew the fundamentals of human anatomy drawing, but this course is a real eye and mind opener to really drawing, instead of just reproducing realistic human anatomy. Essencial for anyone who wants to create and draw ...

About the Instructor

For the last 19 years Jake has worked on everything from animated films to comics to picture books. For several years he worked for Reel FX and Blue Sky Studios on such projects as Horton Hears a Who, Rio, and Epic. He is the creator of the popular Inktober drawing challenge. Jake currently works as an illustrator and cartoonist on children's books and comics. He works out of his home studio in Utah.


The road to mastering drawing starts here.

There is often a mystery that clouds the visual arts with confusion and uncertainty. This is largely because most of us were never given serious art instruction in our childhood years. Jake Parker breaks down the fundamentals of basic drawing and cuts through the fog with so much clarity you'll be saying, "I could do that".

This video takes you from simple line construction under-drawings all the way to solid render lines of objects and characters, including his famous "Skull Chaser!" If you struggle with drawing characters, objects, or any form, you will understand how easy it can be if you follow his simple instructions.

In this class you will learn:

  • how to use simple shapes as the groundwork for any object
  • how to draw those simple shapes in perspective
  • how those shapes can be used to construct a tree, car, or character and virtually anything
  • how the under-drawing is essential to drawing complex objects

Note that this class is in our fundamentals series and therefore covers beginning level concepts and ideas.
