Stan Prokopenko

I was born in Odessa, Ukraine during Chernobyl. This explains a lot. I’ve always enjoyed creating, whether it’s an animation, a website, a painting, a video, a lame joke, a business, or a human 😉

I’m the founder of Proko, home to the funniest and most informative video tutorials about drawing, painting, anatomy, and generally being mostly ok at some stuff…mom says.

Marshall Vandruff and I had one of the leading art podcasts for a few seasons… Draftsmen Podcast

I love my wife and two precious little ones. As well as 2 fur-babies, Wall-E and Eva, 2 fish babies, Princess Fish and Mayor, and 2 snail babies, Governor and Duke. 🙂

Catch up with me on Instagram, Twitter, TikTok or Facebook.


I have hundreds of free and premium drawing and painting lessons available on Proko.com.
My courses include Portrait Drawing, Figure Drawing, and Anatomy of the Human Body for Artists.
