Dear tutors,

I always liked to draw, but I never learned to have a solid foundation in traditional drawing skills.

A short time ago I wanted to dedicate myself to learning seriously, and so I enrolled in the Drawing Academy. I’m very pleased with the course.

I’m learning a lot with lessons and exercises. This course provides a solid foundation, and I noticed my progress in this short time.

I would like to show you some of the drawings I have done by following the first lessons: drawing in perspective, drawings of still-life objects, drawing by rendering shades and drawing of a front and profile face.

I used a paper A2 similar size for all drawings, except in the first rendered shaded drawing and the drawings of the faces. These I drew it on paper size A4.

I used a 2HB pencil in the rendered shaded drawings, and for the others this and a 2H for the initial indications.

The drawing of the metal amphora, I realized that I drew badly the ellipses.

The drawings of the faces, in profile, I noticed that I need to improve the part of the jaw and ear.

I’m analyzing and studying the proportions and anatomical features before drawing a portrait of a model of a statue.

Kind regards,
Javier

Feedback from Vladimir London, Drawing Academy Tutor

Dear Javier,

Many thanks for your drawings and kind words about the Drawing Academy course.

It is very good that you are serious about learning traditional drawing techniques, it will help you in your creative development.

Yes, A2 size of paper is a good size for practice. I’m not sure about 2HB pencil, maybe you mean HB or 2B?

I like your two-point perspective sketch, it shows you have a right understanding of perspective principles.

Regarding ellipses, it is very good that you see the room for improvement; it means you will progress with time and practice.

In your still-life, I like that you are not afraid of well-pronounced pencil strokes and do hatching along the objects contours.

The transition between light and shade on the cylinder can be a bit more gradual.

It is also very good that you are using constructive drawing principles for portraits, thinking about head proportions.

Here’s few drawings by other art students for you to check how they do backgrounds and shading.

    This is beautiful… I can’t stop staring at it. I can’t wait to get started; but due to circumstances right now, I have to wait a little while longer.
