Drawing Academy review by Popovici Andreea

Drawing Academy review by Popovici Andreea

Now I see a future

Hi,

Before I enrolled in this course, I designed, but I did not know the anatomy for artists because I had not studied it. I used the grid method.

When searching the Internet for new techniques, I found Drawing Academy and I immediately realized that it would be the best choice for me.

I learned how to draw the right way. After that, I participated in some contemporary exhibitions using what I’ve learned from this course, creating works of art and I had tremendous satisfaction.

Drawing means everything for me. I hope with all my heart to become a full-time artist one day…

Drawing Acadwemy review by Batool Alsamani

Best guidance! Thank you

I always loved drawing but I never had the proper techniques to learn to master it. Every time I draw I know my drawing is filled with mistakes but I don’t know how to fix them. That is when I decided to look for a guidance from scratch. Gladly I came upon Drawing Academy and I immediately signed up.

It was enlightening, it gave everything I need step by step. I learned how to master classical art with the pencil, to measure the light and shadows and how draw from real life.

It was an amazing experience that I’d recommend to anyone who wants to have a thorough understanding of drawing.

Toned paper project

This is my attempt at the toned paper lesson – live drawings of two whale skeletons in a nearby museum. To give them proper scale, I chose a full sheet of 140 lb Arches paper split horizontally.

I wanted to convey the immense size of these creatures as best I could. I used masking fluid to provide stark contrast between the background and bones. I prefer the profile drawings over the earlier three quarter views, but I am glad I did them first as I learned much from them.

Story and artworks by Amrita, Drawing Academy graduate

Hi, my name is Amrita. I’m a designer and illustrator and having good drawing skills is very important for my career.

Despite receiving a diploma in animation, I actually didn’t get any education in fine art and was unable to do realistic drawings; I only had cartooning skills.

About two years ago I enrolled in the Drawing Academy course. This was a very smart decision because I was able to learn at home what was missing in my art education. I have learned how to draw portraits and figures, landscapes, and everything I want. Now I understand a human anatomy and have a good knowledge of body proportions. This enabled me to create realistic portraits and draw natural landscapes.

Feedback from the Drawing Academy graduate

Painter Stephanie-Gabrielle Sneed

Mostly, I am a Painter, yet painting is like drawing, in its foundation. I suppose my level would be incredible potential. I have made drawings prior, yet after going through the Drawing Academy my drawings excelled. I learned principles of constructive drawing, tonal value, human proportions, perspective, and drawing techniques. Before the course, I almost exclusively painted and now I have knowledge to exclusively draw. I can excel now at both together or separate. After completing the Drawing Academy coursework, I can draw anything! It’s terrific! The clear instruction was awesome. I love how the Drawing Academy is based in traditional, classical methods. I enrolled because I wanted to be able to draw anything and everything. Additionally, the lifetime access to the lectures and demonstrations is a true plus.

Aztec Worrior

I used graphite and charcoal pencil in this drawing. I have been drawing for a couple of years now. But I have not found my own style yet.

I love to draw and just want to get better as I learn. I draw for a hobby and took the Drawing Academy course to start from the beginning as if I don’t know anything. I keep my mind open to learn new things. I know this course is going to help me improve very much.

In The Backyard

Hello,

I made these drawings of an apple and a walnut in my backyard this summer with graphite pencil on a rough paper. This is my first attempt to draw botanical artworks from life, after I studied Drawing Academy instructions in the related video lessons.
