Story and artwork from Maya Aurel
Hello, I’m Maya. A plain regular person who fell in love with fine arts. I started drawing at a young age of 5. Back then i loved cartoon and anime thus i always draw them. Up until last year, I’ve only drawn with something like anime style. In fact, i discover the world of fine arts through a manga called Blue Period.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME Story and artwork from Zvezdana Stankovic I am a journalist by profession, but I have published several books and I have mostly lived art for 33 years, as a collaborator and best friend of one of the greatest Serbian actors and writers, Zoran Rankić, from whose play “Kalemegdan people” (1994) is this drawing, portrait of the Serbian comedian Zika Milenkovic, called ARE YOU KIDDING ME. My challenges in drawing, to which I have dedicated especially the last 2 years of my life, working very intensively, on over 40 portraits, are primarily of a technical nature, in order to portray the people from the portraits as faithfully as possible. I want to learn more about portrait drawing techniques, so that my works are as vivid as possible. I think Drawing Academy is a fantastic way to master…

I started my interest in drawing in the fourth grade. I loved the process, and the freedom to create. As I got older, I didn’t see much progress or direction in my ability, which frustrated me and I would go for long periods without drawing, not knowing why. As years past when I was bored I would gravitate towards drawing, which I found comforting. Occasionally I would produce a good picture or 2, which would encourage me. I always stumbled on the basic’s though, lacking the skill or knowledge to make objects look three dimensional. These skills for some reason were not taught in elementary, Jr. High or High School. The basic elements of line and form, to space and value. I could copy well enough, usually the outline of an individual or object which would look reasonably alike, but always struggled in depth.
Story and artwork from Thauan Silva
Currently I study alone and wanting to learn to draw was a snowball. I didn’t want to take the learning to high levels, but every day I want to know a little more and consequently I changed my mind, out of passion for art.
Story and artwork from Aadarsh Singh
I am Aadarsh and I fell in love with art because I have always wanted to express myself with a language with no rules but just emotions, to be honest I am just learning but I definitely have a come a long way from when I started. I have benefited from Drawing Academy’s free courses but I guess now is time for the official courses but again I can not even imagine to afford it. I have creativity but I want to officially learn the conventional techniques so, I can fulfil the lacks in my art.
