Feedback from Vladimir London and Natalie Richy,
Drawing Academy Tutors

Hi Filip,

Many thanks for your drawings. There are few things you may consider:

1. Constructive drawing principles

When making portraits, build your drawing using virtual helping lines. For example, if you mark a vertical central line of the face, you would see that the face is not symmetrical and eyes, nose and mouth are shifted horizontally from that line.

2. Human anatomy

Draw what you know, not what you see. For example, model’s eyes might look natural to you for now. However, when you learn that a human eye does not have a symmetrical “tuna” shape, you would depict a realistic eye with the top point 1/3 from its inner corner and the bottom point 1/3 from its outer edge.

3. Linear perspective

Work on linear perspective. In your still-life, the top book has the vanishing point on a different horizon level than the table’s vanishing point.

The bottom book has a “reverse” perspective.

4. Rendering techniques

When drawing in graphite, use a well-sharpened pencil to render tonal values. Apply strokes along object’s contours (contours are not the same as outlines).

We hope this helps.
