This is my dream

This is my dream and I need your help to make it real

I’m Nav and I’m working towards to become a professional artist. I just wanna draw, create, learn and share that’s my life. I’ve been practicing for a while now and it’s going nowhere, without any proper resources and guidance it’s like wandering in desert naked. Mostly I’m seeking to learn about life drawing in art, drawing what I see in real life and creating my own.

Mitzie’s Story

Artwork and story from Mitzie

I’m 19 years old and based in Colorado, graduating from an art high school. I’ve been drawing since middle school. I like critters, karaoke, and chicken gump a whole lot! Art for me is my passion and drive and I want to be a professional artist one day, instead of being anything else. Challenges do come with this. I need to buy a tablet so I can start drawing on my computer. Drawing with a computer is, I think, the first step to becoming a professional digital artist. Besides learning strong foundations in art.

Channeling Those Who Went Before

Artwork and story from Diane Ackley

Growing up in Clare, Michigan, USA, I never even attempted drawing. While I was in the sixth grade, I did realize that I could write, and I continued writing voraciously for several years. When I went to Central Michigan University, I studied creative and copywriting, but I wound up working first in Desktop Publishing and later in Administration and Software Support.

I want to move up

The Drawing Academy looks like a solid course with tutors who know the skills of craft, and that is why I would like to get this course. The best thing for me in this course is that I can receive critique on my art. My previous teachers could only tell me “well done” regardless how bad my drawings were. After checking the Drawing Academy articles with critique, I see that the teacher-student communication can be very different. Drawing Academy teachers are not afraid to tell what is wrong with students’ art and how to fix those mistakes. This is exactly what I need at this time – someone who can guide me on my mistakes and teach me how to avoid them.
