Drawing beautiful, in-proportion figures

My first job was as a Fashion Illustrator, and over the years I devised my own methods for drawing beautiful, in-proportion figures. I will show you, in step-by-step detail, my various methods of drawing the figure, including my Secret Heart Technique in this self guided workshop.

So as you are experimenting with your art supplies in different ways, you will also be learning:

  • The Fashion Face
  • Small Faces
  • Jane‘s Secret Technique
  • Dressing Figures
  • Hands and Feet, Arms & Legs
  • Torso and Cleavage
  • Backs and Bottoms
  • Profiles and much, much more!

    You can revisit, rewatch, recharge and remind yourself of all the art supplies, all the drawing lessons, all the mixed media inspiration whenever you want.

    You need never feel embarrassed about not ‘clicking’ with a new skill straightaway. It’s a terrible feeling when you feel left behind, or that you dont ‘get it’ and everyone else does in a learning situation! But you will NEVER feel that way in my classroom because you can pause and rewind, and ask questions.

    “This is a big milestone for me. I’ve been a collage artist and wanted to learn to draw people to put in my collages. After two workshops with Jane, I’ve married my collage with what I’ve learned from janedavenport.com.”

    “Jane Davenport my hubby knows your voice from all lessons I rewatch and rewatch. He says it makes him happy to see me smiling and giggling when I watch — even my cat Jersey-Girl jumps on my lap when she hears your cheerful voice and she has to watch you on my mini-pad as you explain and teach. I can see I am making progress as I practice and rewatch the lessons. Thank you so much. I wish you could see all of our smiling faces.“

    “Jane, you amazing, magical wizard, you! This secret heart technique is so incredible! My limbs are in need of serious training, but I’ll get there. I’m loving how proportional she looks though! Head to shoulders to waist to hips… such a game changer!”
