Thanks to Drawing Academy

Thanks to Drawing Academy

Hello there,

Before taking the Drawing Academy course, my drawing skills were basic, so I couldn’t even apply for any formal art university. The main purpose for joining Drawing Academy was to improve my skills and get prepared for entry exams.

Today, I am getting sketches and paintings commissions, and I also got admission in a university for fine arts – they found my portfolio really impressive and I give all the credit to Drawing Academy.

Charcoal sketch by Aura

Charcoal sketch by Aura

This is my first charcoal drawing since an attempt at art high school 15 years ago on paper they gave me that was not suited for charcoal. It was a mess and I didn’t enjoy it. I absolutely love this medium now!

Drawings in Charcoal

Artworks by Richard E Salazar II, Drawing Academy student

Hello and thank you for the Drawing Academy course.

As a child I dreamed of being an artist, but as I approached adulthood more and more people advised against it. I dismissed my dreams as unrealistic and put my sights on a “real” job. After that I rarely picked up a pencil to even doodle. 20 years later I found myself a stay-at-home dad with an opportunity to give art another try. I knew if I ever wanted to be a successful artist I needed to know how to draw.

Still-life artwork critique – How to use constructive drawing

Artwork from Geri, Drawing Academy student

Hi Drawing Academy tutors,

I’ve just registered and look forward to my journey on this art course.

Just to let you know I am a totally self-taught artist and have had no formal art training at all. As a child and young adult I found it quite easy to draw from my imagination but as I got older I started drawing from photos and now I’m even finding it quite difficult just to do that. I enjoy it but it takes me ages to create my artworks.

I’m just scared that I may not be able to break out of old bad habits like copying from photos.

Here’s one still-life I’ve done from life.

White Mountains

Artwork by Carmelina Fauteux, Drawing Academy student

I love doing landscapes. This is from the White Mountains in Nh. I chose a monochromatic color scheme that fit that cold shady path and frozen stream.
