Chuan-Bin Chung teaches art at Taiwan’s Shu-Te University, creating impressive chalkboard drawings for students in his Illustration, Anatomy of Arts and Painting Skill classes.

The class does have a textbook, but the students do not use it. Instead, as Chung draws skeletal structures on the chalkboard, the students must draw what he’s demonstrating.

“The process of demonstrating is very important to students,” Chung tells Kotaku. “Without the process, they learn nothing, so I draw every educational drawing on the chalkboard in class.”

Learning about the human body is obviously very important in art.

Chung has put some of his classes on YouTube, which you can see below.

Here’s him working on a whiteboard.

He’s an incredibly talented artist and, from the looks of it, an interesting teacher.

Is it wrong how much i love little anatomy rules like this?

Your ear is the same length as your nose, starting from the tip at your brow to just under the nostril.

Your eyes are the mid point of your head. From profile the length between your eyes and the base of your chin is the same as the length between your eyes and the top of your skull.

Looking straight ahead, your pupils line up perfectly with the tips of your mouth.

The space between your eyes is roughly the width of one eye.

There’s always some slight variation but these are great rules of thumb if you’re trying for a more realistic vibe.
