Now I finally got through both the Drawing Academy and the Anatomy Master Class courses. It took me a while. I understand that I have a long way to go to master the art of drawing; however, I have developed a habit to practice a little every day and, from where I see it, I have learned a lot.

Dear Drawing Academy Instructor and Student colleagues:
I value a lot the programs offered for a very simple reason: I can learn in my own time and at a pace that I can control, and I appreciate having this a kind of flexibility.
Portrait of a lawyer
Here is a oil portrait of my friend who is a lawyer.
Self Portrait in soft pastels
Here is a self portrait in soft pastels on brown colored pastel sheet. For this work I have used reference photo. Actually I want to do self portrait with the help of mirrors instead of using photo reference.

Drawing Academy graduate
I have been drawing for many years, but all those years before enrolling in the Drawing Academy I did not know a human head proportions and anatomy and had been using grid to copy portraits. I also didn’t know how to draw in perspective.
I have learnt a lot in the Drawing Academy course. Now I can draw what I see or imagine (even though it’s not perfect) because I know the rules of constructive drawing, understand perspective and proportions and know the steps of portrait drawing.
I can proudly say that my drawing skills improved so much thanks to this drawing course.
I would recommend Drawing Academy to everyone who would like to learn professional drawing techniques and push drawing skill on a higher level.
