Instructor Details

Stan Prokopenko

My name is Stan Prokopenko, I’m an artist and teacher. Proko is a resource for artists to get good art instruction videos. When you watch Proko tutorials you’ll notice that I try to make them entertaining while keeping them educational. I feel that if you’re having fun and enjoying the learning process, you learn better. You retain more information, you pay more attention, you’re much more likely to continue learning and more likely to go back and re-watch tutorials. And it will leave you more inspired and motivated to go practice. I think that making learning fun is good in every way and that’s why it’s at the core of Proko. If fun and informative had a baby they would name it Proko.

I've only just started this course and am looking forward to seeing how this affects my work! I'll be sharing my progress and studies here with you, as well as a follow-up review of the overall course when I am finished with it. So far, I am very impressed by the thought and care put into providing such well-priced and detailed learning resources for artists and I expect to learn a lot from this course!

I highly recommend checking out Proko as a supplement to your drawing curriculum, especially if your work includes the figure. Its affordable, accessible, and very comprehensive. Personally I wouldnt start here if youre an absolute beginner. The figure is a difficult subject no matter what your level of experience, and attempting the figure when youre first starting out is sort of like being asked to play Paganini after being handed a violin for the first. The result will not be pretty and might discourage you from persisting. Then again, Ive heard many successful artists say they started out by copying Marvel superheroes and anatomy books, so if you feel comfortable with the material, go for it. Theres a multitude of online figure and anatomy courses out there to choose from. Proko is definitely a strong contender.

Honestly I've paid for the Proko courses and I haven't used them as much as I'd like (just due to my personal motivation), but yes they are definitely worth it. The amount of detail that is covered, as well as the structure of the lessons, it's pretty much everything you would need to draw portraits, figures, or anatomy realistically. It's high quality and if you have the money, I would recommend it in a heartbeat over other lessons or learning tools I've bought.

I've personally purchased the Figure Drawing Fundamentals premium course myself and I have to say that it helped me improve my skills significantly. The premium videos have more in-depth explanation yet are still manageable, plus there is a lot of content.

Definitely learn from Proko. Realistic figure is useful for all types of characters, even cartoon.

There are quite a number of online figure drawing courses but only a few stand out. I personally recommend prokos course as he has tons of free tutorials already and the paid ones are for in-depth learning:Proko

Ive made no secret of my admiration for Prokos online teaching - it is the most useful and clearly explained of any I know, and very affordable

Proko: Is an outstanding artist and shares all the basics for learning to draw on his website. Nice video's, clear, to the point and funny as well!

This guy makes extremely instructional videos. I think he is funny & serious at the same time.
