Brian-RileyWhat Drawing Magazine's Managing Editor, Brian Riley, has to say:
Dan Thompson’s pedigree as an instructor is beyond reproach (he’s the co-founder of the Janus Collaborative School of Art and the Grand Central Academy of Art), so it should be no surprise that a DVD featuring him as the instructor is so chock-full of useful material. Artists interested in portraiture and anatomy will be hard-pressed to find a more valuable tool for developing the groundwork needed to achieve lifelike portraits.

excellent Review by bridget

Thoughtful, and very well presented. It would be even more in depth, if the video showed more of the actual drawing process, and less emphasis on Mr. Thompson's face.
He is, of course, an outstanding example of the teaching arts.
