What 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.
