I made a thing

Part 5 (of 6):  [The Importance of a Good Recipe]

  1. Despite there being billions and billions of art tutorials out there… they still all teach you the WRONG old way of slow results.
  2. Using the new way of learning it’s possible to go from never picking up a pencil to drawing Lifelike Portraits in under 21 days.

hen I created the Lifelike Portraits in 21 Days course, I designed it so that anyone who can hold a pencil could start seeing results right away, from the very first lessons.

It’s broken down into modules that guide you through the same systems that I showed you here today: building up the structure of the head, adding details slowly, and finally how to add value through shading.

I took all the useless stuff that I learned in four years of art school, countless books, workshops, tutorials and more… and I threw it out the window.

In this course, I approach portrait drawing from a new and much simpler angle! One that’s focused on getting you the results you care about faster than ever.

And once I did that, the entire game changed. 

My students have been flying through the course!

They’ve been staying up late doing Rapid Learning Reps, sharing portraits that get more and more lifelike with each one!

When I shared this with my private Facebook group, it was like I’d set fire to an oil field.

The first week after making it available, my inbox was flooded with testimonials… photos of new work they were so proud to show off, and stories of how they’d been struggling for so long, and were BLOWN AWAY by how well this course was working for them!

And since it’s release, over 3,500 people have used this course to take their portraits from flat and unrecognizable to beautiful, lifelike drawings that they can proudly show off to friends and family. 

Here’s what a few of them had to say:

I am seeing improvement with every lesson…Thank you! I am so excited about this course. You are a wonderful instructor! 🙂


– Lynn Buckmaster

I am a long time landscape artist who has been afraid to tackle portraits…Until today. Thank you for the inspiration. I know I have a lot to learn but I am proud I made the attempt, and I am actually having SO MUCH FUN!


– Lacy Croft

This is the first time I have felt anywhere near knowing and believing that I could be successful with drawing — and enjoy drawing. You are a phenomenal teacher! This course is exactly what I need and more.


– Jeannine Mays

I LOVE the Rapid Learning Reps. I’m doing them every spare minute, now!


– Cindy Tanner

Wow, Rapid Learning Reps really work! I’m loving this course. Love that you can binge it or take a day off… Having the formula in my head to work with has been really helping me!


-Samantha LeDuc

I want to thank Rebecca so much for her lessons. I’m finally drawing without a grid! I’ve never been able to get a likeness without one before.


– Ahna McCue


About This Course

This course builds on itself every step of the way, so your skills will build smoothly and seamlessly as you go.

Each video teaches you one new skill that, when added to the last, gets you one step closer to drawing gorgeous, artful, lifelike portraits.

And because I really wanted this course to be as helpful as it could possibly be, I added another secret ingredient

I created a physical workbook that goes with the course.

Every video lesson in the course has accompanying exercises in the workbook. There are reference photos, example sketches, and plenty of spaces for you to work in yourself.

The workbook has over 80 pages of exercises for you to work through. And just like the program itself, it’s designed to get you results FAST.

And most importantly, the course is designed to be FUN!

Once you start drawing, and especially once you start seeing how easily you can draw realistic portraits, you’ll never want to stop!

And you’ll see those successes stack one onto the next.

Before you know it, you’ll look up to find that you’ve drawn a portrait that actually looks like the person you’re drawing!


No more tears of frustration. No more wasted time. No more wonky features or skewed faces that don’t quite look like who you meant for them to be…

No more crumpled sheets of paper on the floor by your trash can.

How would that make you feel?

How many gifts could you give? How many friends and family members could you surprise with a portrait that they’ll truly love?


If you’re really serious about taking your portraits to the next level… If you really want to create lifelike portraits more easily than you ever thought possible… the natural next step is simple:

Now, to be fair, you might have a few questions at this point.

Questions like…

"How is this course delivered?"

“How is the course delivered?”

All the training materials are online in video format,  plus you get the physical course workbook mailed out to you (I’ll give you a digital print-at-home copy too).

This way you can watch it on any device and have permanent access to it forever.

"I'm too busy to dedicate time to this right now..."

“This sounds great, but I’m busy, I don’t really have time to dedicate to this right now…”

The good news is that you can start and stop the program whenever you want. 21 days is just the average amount of time it takes someone to complete the program.

Some people complete it in as little as a week… some take longer… it’s designed to get you results… fast!

"What if I've never drawn portraits before?"

“I have always drawn still lifes in the past… I’m a little nervous about starting portraits. Will this course help me even though I’ve never drawn people before?”

This course will absolutely help you, yes.

You don’t need any experience to start this course, it’s designed to help you know exactly where to start.

In fact, it might be a good thing you are starting from scratch — no preconceived notions or bad habits to break!

This course, I believe, will help anyone, at any level, to improve very quickly.

"Can you use this information with other mediums?"

“Can you use this information in other mediums? I have always wanted to learn to paint people but I struggle with drawing them…Do I need to learn this stuff before trying to paint?”

If you want to learn to paint portraits, I would absolutely recommend that you take this course first.

Painting is so much fun, but it’s also so much more complicated than drawing, so having a good foundation in your drawing skills is super important.

It’s going to make your transition to painting SO MUCH EASIER if you have a solid foundation in drawing, first.

And yes, a lot of what you’ll learn in this course is stuff that does translate into painting.

It’s basically just like focusing on learning the stuff in black and white first, so that when you move on to color, you can focus just on the color part, rather than trying to learn the basics of form and getting the likeness right.

"Do I have to do this in 21 consecutive days?"

“Do I have to do this in 21 consecutive days?”

No! You can take this course at your own pace.

You can go through it in 21 days if you have time to do that, if not, you can go slower through it, take it at whatever pace works for you.

You can even go back through the course multiple times if you want. It’s very flexible, meant to build your skills easily and gradually at any pace.

What would it be worth to you if you could…

Stop running around… hopping from one art resource to another and finally have everything you need to draw Lifelike Portraits in one place?

Develop life-long skills that no one can ever take away from you that actually get you the results that you want?

Safely avoid wasting a buttload of time & money… because you’ve finally found the right solution that puts the old way of learning to shame?

Actually gain the confidence to show off your work… instead of feeling embarrassed or ashamed that something isn’t quite right…?

This is the opportunity in front of you today. 

To finally achieve game changing results with your portrait drawing that actually lasts.

Make the decision to invest in yourself today… I promise you that you’re worth it.
