I have been taking a lot of time in the portrait drawing section of the Drawing Academy course as I have not learned portrait drawing before. Here is the latest portrait I did of a young African woman.
I would appreciate your critique of this portrait to help me fine tune my skill in this area!
Drawing by Ann Marie
Can you critique my drawing of a statue? This is the best portrait drawing I have done so far, thanks to the Drawing Academy videos. Before I enrolled in this course, I would never draw portraits, it was too hard. This course make drawing portraits a lot easier.

Town of wooden toys
This is a still life drawing of some wooden toys, drawn from life. The lamp was set left and above the objects. I would like to know what can I improve. Your opinion is very much appreciated,

Still life with oranges, lemons, a cup, and a pot
Dear Drawing Academy,
In my drawing I focused on shading and on round and oval shapes. It depicts citrus fruits, a pot and a cup on a table with a white table cloth in folds. In the background hangs a piece of grey cloth.
Still life drawing by Debora, Drawing Academy student
Currently I am working on drawings of geometrical objects. I would like to ask for your suggestions, for I want to improve my skills and technique. These are still life compositions made from life, the same objects from different angles. The first one is a linear drawing of the objects and their reflections on a shiny surface, with a window behind and above. The other drawing is rendered, the lamp was set left and above the objects.
Drawings in 2H pencil
Here are my drawings in pencil of Roman and Greek busts. I drew it using what I’ve learned from the Drawing Academy lessons.
Castle Drawing by Jeff Rissman
I drew this image of a castle, first light outlines in graphite, then filling in with colored pencil. Here’s a sequence of images showing the stages of progress on the piece. I’m interested in any critique you may have.
Drawings and questions from Jeff, Drawing Academy student
I continue to attend figure drawing sessions from time to time. Recently, I did these two drawings in blue Prismacolor Premier colored pencil. Each drawing was based on a single 20-minute pose. I tried to improve the models’ faces based on your video lessons on how to draw a mouth, nose, ears, etc. However, I still find it difficult, especially when I only have 20 minutes to complete the whole drawing. I am interested in any feedback you have for me.
I have been studying the drawing techniques of the old masters.
In this drawing (conte’ and sepia pencils) I have combined the works of two great masters: Bertoia (left) and Raphael (right) and added the bathing pool in the center to combine the two drawings into a new composition. I faded the Raphael nude to add depth.
