Fascinated by this proud facial expression

Fascinated by this proud facial expression

Drawing by Johann Krammer, Drawing Academy student

I saw this photo in a fashion magazine and was fascinated by this proud facial expression.

The original is from a great German photographer (Sorry, I could not draw from the original, I had only the photo ;-) ).

However, the graphical challenge was rather the headscarf. Around the nose are small corrections necessary. But I was afraid to destroy the image with a few strokes…

Drawing by Saninny

Drawing by Saninny

I started drawing again this spring after not drawing at all for about 35 years. I was never taught the classical drawing method and have just subscribed to the Drawing Academy course. I used three silver pitchers to practice perspective and the constructive drawing technique presented in the first few lessons of the course. This drawing is done with charcoal pencil on toned pastel paper. In order to make the background a really dark black, I used a compressed charcoal stick and did some smudging with a finger or felt.

Artworks by Spyridoyla Raftopoulou, Drawing Academy graduate

First and foremost, I would like to thank you for giving me the opportunity to take part at the competition Spring 2014 and for making me a lifetime member of your school.

Furthermore, having watched and studied thoroughly all the available videos in the course, I would like to thank Mr Vladimir London for his contribution and dedication. He was really obliging and helped me expand my knowledge significantly.

Lastly, I want to say that the classes were understandable, and I feel happy with the outcome…

Thank you for this wonderful Drawing Course!

Hello Vladimir and Natalie! My name is Malvina James, I am originally from Vladivostok, Russia. I moved to Canada many years ago. I started my art education taking online courses. I also purchased your oil painting course last year. Watching instruction videos I realized, that I wished to improve my drawing skills! Now, when 3 months passed and most of the assignments done, I feel like a pro:))) I could not believe how much I have learned! My figurative drawing become better, I learned about rendering and charcoal unique techniques. Also I was introduced to silverpoint – I didn’t have a clue that such a thing exists! I tried and felt in love with ink medium, and tried my first collage… This course was great motivation for me to get better and made me feel more confident about my artistic…

Collage by Malvina James

Collage by Malvina James

This is my first attempt in a field of collages.:) It was a lot of fun to do it! I have 500 rubles (year 1912); I didn’t dare to cut it, but instead copied, enlarged and cut the image of a woman. I think, she represents an allegory of Russia. The phrase means – “The appearances of things are deceptive” (Latin). Thank you for the nice lesson, have a great day. Malvina James

My father’s portrait

Painting by Aranka Kocsis Tothne, Drawing Academy student

In September 2009 I started studying Art management. After my first painting lesson I realized that I didn’t want to sell other people’s paintings but to draw and paint.

In 2010, I took some drawing lessons and started painting portraits.

Now, I would like to share my father’s portrait, which I painted after becoming a member of the Web Art Academy
