Have you ever stared at a blank piece of paper, coloured pencil in hand, and wondered “Where do I even start?!”

Confused on which colours to choose, no idea which layer to start with, and lacking the skills to add the right textures and details.

Do you ever get frustrated with your drawings, and give up half-way through because they look
nothing like the reference?

Wondering if you’ll ever draw something you’re proud of, thinking maybe a more expensive pencil set will do the trick.

And do you ever look at your finished pieces and think…

Have you ever stared at a blank piece of paper, coloured pencil in hand, and wondered “Where do I even start?!”

Confused on which colours to choose, no idea which layer to start with, and lacking the skills to add the right textures and details.

Do you ever get frustrated with your drawings, and give up half-way through because they look nothing like the reference?

Wondering if you’ll ever draw something you’re proud of, thinking maybe a more expensive pencil set will do the trick.

And do you ever look at your finished pieces and think…

Why Do All My Drawings Look
Cartoonish And Two-Dimensional?!

Why Do All My Drawings
Look Cartoonish And
Two-Dimensional?!

If there’s anything I’ve learned after working with nearly 21,000 artists in my premium art classes, plus the feedback I’ve gotten on over 61 Million views on YouTube…

It’s that we all go through the same struggles when it comes to mastering the art of coloured pencil drawing.

It’s a slow medium.  It requires a lot of precision and control.

And sadly, because it’s such a challenging medium (when you don’t have the tools I’m about to show you), I see way too many artists giving up because they don’t think they “have the talent.”

But what you need to realize is…

Drawing With Coloured Pencils Is
A Skillset That Anyone Can Learn!

Drawing With Coloured Pencils Is A Skillset That Anyone Can Learn!

Would you try to play the piano, and give up if it didn’t sound right on your first try?

Then why would it be any different when drawing with coloured pencils?!

And don’t tell me it’s because you can’t afford expensive pencils…

I’ll show you how to create a super realistic drawing with an affordable 12 pencil from Amazon.

Just like any other skill, drawing with coloured pencils is a skill ANYONE can master.

Do You Make These
Coloured Pencil Mistakes?

Let’s take a look at some of the most common mistakes artists make when drawing with coloured pencils:

They Don’t Have A Gameplan

When most artists start their drawings, they have no idea how to draw an accurate sketch, which colours to choose, and what layers to start and end with.

But what if I told you there was a set of questions you can ask yourself before starting your next drawing…

That gives you a crystal clear gameplan for sketching perfection proportions, choosing accurate colours, and knowing exactly when to add each layer to your drawing?

They Don’t Understand Values

This one is huge!

When it comes to drawing a realistic image, most beginners think choosing the right colours is the most important part…

But understanding values is WAY MORE important!

Your colours can actually be quite off if your shadows are dark enough and your highlights are accurate.  I’ll show you why in the next section…

They “Finish” Their Drawings Too Early
They “Finish” Their Drawings Too Early

Drawing with coloured pencils really can get stressful the more time you put into your drawing…

Because the more layers you add, the more likely you are to make a mistake and RUIN your drawing!

Which is why so many novice artists finish their drawings early, afraid to try solvents and other blending techniques that would dramatically smooth out their drawings…

And adding the right texture and details to get their drawings to pop and come to life.

If Any Of These Sound Familiar
Trust Me, You're Not Alone!

If Any Of These Sound Familiar Trust Me, You're Not Alone!

When I started my YouTube channel back in 2015, I quickly realized that my most popular videos were the ones where I broke down the HOW behind the art.

Over time, I started recording premium art tutorials – Showing step by step how I chose my colours, how I added each layer, as well as blending and sketching techniques…

And I’ve been lucky to have over 21,000 people purchase my tutorials, where I get messages like these daily from artists who have used my tutorials:

But What Do You Do When You
Want To Draw Your Own Reference?!

But What Do You Do
When You Want To Draw
Your Own Reference?!

But the more tutorials I put out, the more I started noticing a problem.

When someone purchased one of my tutorials, they were easily able to follow along with me, using the reference I chose, and creating something that looked realistic.

The challenge was when they wanted to use their own reference, like a picture of their family or someone’s pet…

Whenever they went off on their own, their drawings never looked realistic!

And what I’ve come to realize is…

No Art Tutorial Will Ever Give
You Everything You Need To
Master Coloured Pencil Drawing

After seeing the same questions pop up again and again, as well getting countless comments on YouTube asking for help…

I’ve decided to create a comprehensive online course that distills down everything I’ve learned over the last 5+ of years teaching in my premium art tutorials.

And teach you in a visual, step by step framework, a method for drawing ANY reference you want.

So that instead of doing lots of trial and error or needing to follow along to an art tutorial…

You’ll know exactly when to add each layer, the theory behind choosing the right colours and values, and how to effortlessly draw in the details without the fear of making a mistake.

Here's How We'll Level Up
Your Drawings Together...

Intro: Setting Yourself Up For Success

Intro: Setting Yourself
Up For Success

Before we jump into the drawing, we need to first make sure you have the right mindset for success.

You’ll also learn how to setup your ideal workspace environment, so that whenever you’re ready to draw it’s an exciting and fun experience instead of a chore.

Here’s some of what you’ll learn:

We’ll finish the Introduction section by making sure your workspace is setup for success, with proper lighting, desk choice, and even where to place your supplies.

And finally, I’ll have you submit your latest drawing before you start the course so we can see how much better and realistic your drawings are by the end of the program!
