I have been involved in the visual arts niche for some time now and  I have seen many products come and go.  Many of them are terrible quite honestly. Some of these products are sold by people who could care less about you or your interest in becoming a better artist. So it is very difficult to trust anyone these days. This is definitely not the case with Christopher Sia.  After speaking with him personally, I can tell you that he has a sincere interest in helping you succeed. He has created an amazing product here at an amazing price and once you see what comes with this course, you will agree.

It has been said, that if you can draw the human form, then you can draw anything.

What I find most appealing about this course is the amount of detail Christopher goes into explaining everything.  I know of no other portrait drawing course this elaborate.  Christopher goes above and beyond many other courses on portrait drawing with detailed instructions,  high quality images and fantastic bonuses.

Drawing Supplies

You may be wondering what kind of drawing supplies you will need in order to start drawing along with this Realistic Pencil Portrait Mastery course. Unlike other drawing books and courses that you may have purchased in the past, that recommend you buy tons of expensive drawing supplies to get started,  Realistic Pencil Portrait Mastery is different. To get started drawing portraits in pencil like a master, you only need 2H, 2B, and 5B wood cased pencils and an eraser. Other supplies you will need you probably have laying around the house like q-tips and tissues. You can get them easily in any local or online art supply store

Christopher Sia’s First Portrait Drawing

Its important to note that Christopher was a beginner just like you at one point.  It took him years of trial and error to become as good as he is today. I say this because you may be looking at your current work and skill level and feel that you may never be able to draw realistic portraits.  Get that out of your head right now!  With patience and hard work, anyone can draw portraits like a master.

Just take a look at the first portrait that Christopher ever created below:

After years of trial and error, Christopher can take the same portrait and do this:

This is by far my favorite bonus. This could easily sell as a  course all on its own.
