HOW TO DRAW ACCURATELY
EVERY TIME!
Master these 2 drawing tools and you’ll create
accurate drawings every time!

Have you ever gotten to the end of a drawing and realized that something was “off”? Maybe the eyes were too far apart? Or, maybe the entire shape of the head was wrong, leaving your drawing looking lopsided and “just not quite right”?

And now, after you’ve meticulously balanced the value throughout your drawing and you’re just about ready to “make it yours” by adding your signature… Going back to fix your drawing is either going to be a massive hassle or completely impossible.

But don’t worry, you aren’t the first artist to stumble upon this frustration...

It’s an easy mistake to make. All it takes is one or two misguided strokes in the layout and the rest of your pencil strokes play follow-the-leader down the wrong path. And before you know it your drawing has quickly gotten away from you.

If your drawings have been down this path before and are you’re ready to unlock the secrets to drawing accurately (from the very first pencil stroke), then we have the solution:

How to Draw Accurately Every Time by Darrel Tank is a 5-part, powerhouse drawing class that will put an end to inaccurate drawings—for good!

There’s a battle for your best going on and you need all the help you can get!

Accuracy is your ally.

Imagine being in the thick of a drawing layout… Each and every stroke you make could be taking you further and further from where you need to be—you may not even be able to tell… yet.

Fortunately, over his nearly 50 years as a professional artist, Darrel has developed a method for checking your accuracy with two tools that you may have never associated with fine art… The straightedge (a.k.a. the edge of a ruler) and a divider.

This method has helped thousands of frustrated artists draw more accurately than they ever thought possible—and it will help you too!

This series of 5 classes digs deep into the straightedge and divider method and presents it from a fresh new perspective unlike anything Darrel has ever done before. You’ll learn the ins-and-outs of the method at a relaxed, fun-to-follow pace and discover (or rediscover) just how valuable these two tools really are!

How to Draw Accurately Every Time was created to:

  • Put you in control of your drawings from the very first stroke — Discover how the straightedge and divider method allows you to check for proper angles, distances, and proportions from the very start of your drawing. It’s also one of the few ways that you can regularly check for accuracy at any point in the drawing process— this saves you from painful discoveries at the end.
  • Train your eyes to see shapes — The sooner you can start to recognize the individual shapes that can be found in the objects and people around you, the better. The straightedge and divider method allows you to break your drawings into easy to draw sections and gives you the ability to check every shape you draw for accuracy.
  • Prevent you from time-consuming bloopers! — A small mistake in your layout is only compounded as you continue to draw. How to Draw Accurately Every Time teaches you to recognize these errors while you can still easily fix them.

Since discovering Darrel's straight edge and divider method, I won't go back to the grid for portrait drawings. I can't say enough good about it. It has helped my proportions tremendously and to get as accurate as possible in my drawings. —Anilda Patterson

Check your work
Understanding the straightedge and divider method gives you the option to check your work at every step of the drawing process. You can rest assured that the lines and shapes you create are accurate and won’t cause costly, time-consuming errors that may not come to light until you’re ready to sign your drawing.
Start seeing shapes
It’s easy to look at a subject or reference photo and feel overwhelmed by the sheer complexity of it all—but that won’t get you anywhere! The straightedge and divider method teaches you to see your drawings as a series of manageable, easy-to-draw shapes rather than a big, scary, obstacle you have to dread. The method starts as a guide, but as you continue to use it and grow as an artist you’ll begin to see these shapes naturally.
Apply the concept
It’s one thing to read a book or watch a lesson, but when it comes right down to it, when learning a new skill, nothing beats good ol’ application! You won’t just learn a new set of skills from these lessons: you’ll get the chance to put them to use while you layout an actual portrait.
Build your confidence
You can be confident that the skills and techniques Darrel teaches are time tested and artist approved! Thousands of artists have drastically improved their “artistic vision” and advanced their drawing ability by following the 5-Pencil Method, and now you have the same opportunity. Here’s your chance to put Darrel’s nearly 50 years of experience to work for you!

Lesson Descriptions
Lesson 1 Art Studio Episode 41
A Solid Foundation
When you realize that even the smallest inaccuracies in the early stages of a drawing are bound to grow and be compounded with each new stroke, you understand the importance of a solid foundation. In Lesson 1, you’ll start with the basics of Darrel’s proven straightedge and divider method by drawing your first bearing lines, plotting your sizing points, and capturing that first angle—the first steps toward accuracy!
Lesson 2 Art Studio Episode 42
Truth in Triangles
Lesson 2 walks you through the process of triangulation. Don’t be fooled by the fancy name; it’s just another easy-to-use tool for creating accurate portraits. By breaking your subject into these manageable shapes (triangles), you’ll not only create more accurate drawings, but you’ll also be able to tackle the project one small step at a time, avoiding overwhelming frustration as well.
Lesson 3 Art Studio Episode 43
Quest for Accuracy
The quest for accuracy continues! As you continue to create shapes, you’re going to witness a transformation. Each new shape gives you the opportunity to start roughing out the form of the face, changing your drawing from a series of lines and dots to a recognizable form that you can get excited about.
Lesson 4 Art Studio Episode 44
Divider and Conquer
In Lesson 4, Darrel shares the secrets of his “divider recipe.” If you aren’t familiar with the divider as a tool for accurate drawing, you soon will be! The divider is just one more simple opportunity to ensure that your drawings are accurate before you invest your precious time and energy in creating the eye-popping, realistic masterpieces you’re after!
Lesson 5 Art Studio Episode 45
Clean Up
Time to clean things up. The aftermath of the layout process leaves you with a rough, albeit beautiful, rendering of your subject of choice. In order to avoid confusion in the later stages of your drawing, Darrel shows you how to clean up and commit to your lines. Plus, learn how to use the power of a gradient to create the illusions of depth and dimension at every step in the drawing process.
