Speakers: Matthew Sellen, UK

Matthew Sellen: Hi - My name is Matthew, I'm from the UK.

Can you show us an example of artwork you created with the help of Drawawesome?

Matthew Sellen: So here's one of my sketches, which I did a couple of weeks ago - or a month ago from the last Draw Awesome section, which was animals. Yeah, we haven't done many animals on this syllabus, but with all the other things that I've learned over the last few months, a dog! This is a dog that would have looked like two pointy ears and a little waggy tale and four stick legs. I don't think I would have done anything better than that. I was really, really pleased with this.

How would you say Draw Awesome has helped you?

Matthew Sellen: Before I started Draw Awesome I've been trying to draw and paint for probably about four or five years. But I I never quite knew why the good stuff worked and the bad stuff didn't. So every time I started a new project was always really quite hit and miss as to what would actually happen at the end.

Matthew Sellen: Since I started Draw Awesome, my knowledge, my confidence, my skills, I think I've improved a improved a lot. So I start looking forward to when the next project's going to come out, whether... you know, to challenge myself. But now I have a sense of confidence that whilst it might not be the greatest thing ever, at least it's going to look like what it's meant to look like, and I'm always pretty confident that's going to be the outcome now.

So would you recommend the Course to others?

Matthew Sellen: Phil is a great teacher, the detail he goes into, the time he takes. If you want to learn to draw better, then I can't recommend Draw Awesome highly enough. It's a great, great way to way to learn. It does take time. You do need to commit to it. Phil tells you that right at the very beginning and it's true. If you have the time and you want to do it, then yeah, it's a great, great way to learn how to draw. Use different media, different subjects and you start applying all of that knowledge into new things, more and more rapidly. It's a great way to learn.
