Discover a new way of drawing

I’ve been teaching realistic drawing for 13 years and I’ve seen many challenges among my students. The one difficulty that has the biggest negative impact, is “getting proportions right”. Why? Because correcting proportional mistakes eats up a huge amount of time and energy. Sometimes it is so draining that it can even kill the desire to keep drawing. I’ve been there…

There is a better way. Imagine drawing in a way that lets every line fall exactly in the right place. No erasing, no confusion or frustration. If I could only teach one drawing skill, it would be proportional accuracy. That’s what this guide is for.

Dorian carefully walks the viewer through a successful representational drawing effort – from the earliest considerations to the realized linear construct. I regularly recommend his wonderful guide to our students.

I have never seen anyone so dedicated, enthusiastic and passionate about teaching. The positivity, and the amount of time, energy, and effort that Dorian gives to his students is a wonder and a privilege.

Having witnessed Dorian at work, I can vouch for the efficiency of his methods. Not only does his passion for visual accuracy inform beautiful works of art, but his finesse in observation extends into an eye for detail in every area of his life, seeking truth and beauty in all facets of the world around him. Dorian is a ‘seer’ of remarkable dedication and authenticity.
