Realistic Pencil Portrait Mastery Review – Pros And Cons

Christopher Sia is the creator of the Realistic Pencil Portrait Mastery Home Study Course.

He is a teacher and he taught hundreds of students to draw pencil portraits from beginner to advanced level and has helped his students to achieve their dreams of becoming masters in pencil portrait drawing.

Realistic Pencil Portrait Mastery Review – What Exactly Is This Course?

Christopher Sia has certainly put in tons of effort in putting together what I call the “Complete Pencil Portrait Drawing Package”. It consists of 5 drawing lessons in PDF format with a total of 208 pages, 605 of illustrations and images – to guide you step-by-step with detailed descriptions through the entire home-study course.

I think that the step-by-step guide in the home-study course is really useful because it isn’t just another pencil portrait drawing guide that you normally see online.

Most of the other pen and pencil drawings books and courses that could be found online have beautiful completed illustrations with lots of descriptions with the expectation of you being able to learn from such a way. However, my thought is that providing a step-by-step tutorial is the best and most effective way of learning, rather than figuring out how to draw each part based on the reference completed picture.

The big question is, while there are so many drawing books and courses available on the internet today, is Realistic Pencil Portrait Mastery really worth the money?

To answer this question and to find if this course is really for you, let’s talk about some of the pros and cons of this course.

Realistic Pencil Portrait Mastery Review – The Pros and Cons

The Pros:

  • A “truly” step by step guide shows you how to achieve a certain outcome with helpful descriptions
  • Easy to create stunning pencil portraits like a master without years of trials and errors
  • A total of 10 drawing work, 200 pages, and 505 photos  to guide you along with
  • Useful bonuses to effectively help you to improve your pencil portrait drawing

Realistic Pencil Portrait Mastery Home Study Course is designed for anyone who wants to create realistic pencil portraits on the “real master level” that most artists in the world rarely reach, the quick and easy way.

In my opinion, it doesn’t matter at all if you are a beginner who has never done any pencil art drawing before. This training is definitely the easiest way to start creating stunning pencil arts.

Unlike any other drawing books and courses that need tons of drawing materials to get started, you only need 2H, 2B, and 5B wood-cased pencils which you can get them easily in your local art or stationery stores.

Other than that, you get free updates as a subscriber to their mailing list which ensures that there is a constant stream of content which compliments the course more.

The Cons:

I feel that the member area have pretty large downloads and certain files may take you a long time to complete the downloads due to their sizes with lots of illustrations. In addition, the home-study course is currently only available via instant download without any shipping of physical products.

However, it is understandable there will be no risk of product damage as these are downloadable digital files

Conclusions:

All in all, this is a great home-study course to move to the next whole new “real master level” of pencil portrait drawing.
