ProfessorPicasso's Profile Picture
Professor Picasso
Artist | Student | Traditional Art
I have initiated a project that will be documented here on deviant art. The aim of the project is to learn to draw photo-realistic and to fully master the art of drawing. Once I have mastered this skill, I will create a step by step system that is easy to teach to others so that they can learn to draw independent of previous background or innate talent. I am convinced that everyone can learn to draw and all that is required is dedication, persistence and the right guidance.

Many people believe that being able to draw is something magical and that you have to be born with a special talent. I will prove them wrong.

To show that this is possible, I will document my development by uploading drawings made earlier at the beginning of the project. You can follow my progress from the start of the project until now. The image above shows my current skill level but I have a long way to go and the system is not yet fully developed.

As soon as the first phase of the program is developed, I will beta test the system with my watchers and teach everyone how to draw step by step.
