I hope you can appreciate the irony of the title of my blog. Of course it will not be a complete guide to becoming an artist but it will guide you through my own struggle in becoming an artist. I´m an art student and I study art in the classical, academical way.
The pictures above show you how to (according to the Russian tradition) make a drawing, in this case a drawing of a bust.
When I started doing "30 minutes portraits" in November last year I had no clue of how to build up the structure of a portrait. I merely goofed around and produced strange looking aliens.

In the coming posts I will show you how my 30 minutes-portraits have evolved.
