Hi!!! this is Sujata ,I am an artist. I am the student of Silver Portrait Course at Pencil Perception Academy. I was in search of realism in my art & my search ended at PPA . Am very much satisfied by enrolling at PPA. Many different aspects are covered in the syllabus. It's a one year artistic journey. along with realism it gives us knowledge about various techniques regarding portraiture, that we wouldn't have think. So much detailed and thorough knowledge is given through recorded videos. all the videos are detailed and thorough, even absolute beginner can enroll and can successfully complete the course. Trust me the result at the end of the course is totally different then that of beginning. I'm definitely looking forward to enroll Onyx course ,after finishing the Silver Portrait Course. Sadashiv sir is a magician in true sense blessed by goddess Saraswati . My mentor Komal Thoria is the most passionate and hardworking mentor I have got. She made me work better and better. I am so much thankful to Sadashiv sir, Prabuddha ma'am and Komal for all the support. thank you so much.

Hello. I am Siddhi Patil. I loved to draw since childhood. It's been two years since I started to draw portraits. But I always felt something was missing in my drawings. One day i saw pencil perception's Instagram profile and i was amazed by sir's drawings. Then i decided to join online silver portrait course. All the assignments helped me to improve my observation and better understanding of tonal values. My art improved a lot within a year. I have successfully completed a silver portrait course and am now doing an onyx course with mentorship. It's a really amazing experience. Thanks to the sadashiv sir and prabuddha mam for the valuable guidance. I highly recommend these courses who want to learn photo realism art.

Greeting sir! There is a proverb called ' A mentor is someone who sees more talent and ability within you, than you see in yourself, and helps bring it out for you by Bob Proctor. I can relate this proverb with myself when i joined your course.Thanks a lot for making my dream into reality. I got the best foundation about the drawing,rendering,perception etc.This is the best decision which i took in my life. Before joining your course when i tried few portraits it didn't resemble the reference . After joining your 'SILVER PORTRAIT COURSE' i am confidently trying out and making my own portrait assignments. My Parents, Friends and relatives are very proud of me and they are very happy. Thanks a lot sir and i am feeling blessed and overwhelmed

Joining Pencil Perception academy was a life changing experience for me – The course is so well structured All you need is practice and dedication towards the art. Sadashiv Sir is a great tutor who is very aware of how to support and guide you throughout the cource. I have learned a great deal about gradiant, anatomy, behavior of light, drawing and composition in this "Silver cource" and it has been fun to do. Hopefully I will start next course soon Thanks a lot PPA team and Sadashiv Sir For taking my drawing beond my imagination. 🙏😊

Drawing, sketching has always been a passion for me. My knowledge on the subject was limited to self learned basics from Google. I needed a more professional approach and application to this knowledge which made me enroll for this course under the mentorship of Vrinda mam. This course is well researched and developed to enable even an amateur to master the skill of sketching. Kudos to the team of Pencil perceptions! A special mention of my mentor, Vrinda mam who was very patient in explaining the nuances of sketching. At times my hectic work schedule did not permit me to submit the assignments on time. But she has been very supportive and encouraging throughout...Thank you Sawant Sir for giving a chance to many amateurs to make our dream turn reality

The Silver Potrait course is extremely helpful if you really want to start drawing or develop yourself in potrait drawing. The course is perfect for beginners, and it is more helpful when you opt for the course with mentorship. The advantage of mentorship is that the mentors guide you in every way to correct you and make you perfect which will help you in drawing realistic potraits. For a beginner I really recommend the Silver Potrait course with Mentorship.. for amazing guidance from the mentors.

Being a working professional, focus towards our inner passion fades away is a misconception. Initially I was skeptical about joining a full time course where I have to manage both work and art. But Penci Perceptions made it easy through detailed video sessions and mentorship. My perception towards Pencil Drawings has completely changed until I started my journey with Pencil Perceptions. This course trained me in observing, detailing and drove me towards perfection. My mentor was very patient and helpful right from the start providing guidance in identifying my mistakes, correct them and did regular check up on my practice. Regular live sessions from Sadashiv sir gives us the technical details that we overlook while practicing. Pencil Perceptions is one such platform for anyone who wants to tune their inner artist. Amazing thing about Pencil Perceptions is that any kind of complex work is rendered only through pencils without any blending tools which is the very first reason for me to join this course. I am extremely happy to be a part of this amazing community and would recommend to anyone without a second thought.

It's the best online Pencil Realism Course. I started developing my observation because of object studies and saw a lot of difference in my portrait


on 24 Jun 2021

It's a very detailed course, teaches you to have patience and keep trying until it's perfect. Maybe the duration could be little longer. I've reached half way the course and it's extremely detailed and organised.

Being a commerce graduate, my exposure to sketching was limited to whatever little that was taught in the school. Thereafter trying to pursue it alongside family responsibilities neither seemed feasible nor important. However the unprecedented circumstances of last year made me determined to explore things that I really wanted to, but couldn't due to various reasons. And 'Pencil Perceptions' seemed to be the right starting point in this regard. It allowed me to begin my learning without even stepping out of my house and that too at my own pace. The systematic structuring of the course -basic strokes to plain patches to objects with different textures to portrait- is suitable for everyone including novices like me who want to follow their interests but don't know where to begin without getting intimidated by lack of technical knowledge. The best part of the course are the various videos wherein Sawant Sir walks us through the whole process of rendering the sketch; right from 1) focused observation of picture 2) understanding the nuances and the finer points of the effect that is expected to be achieved and 3) actually demonstrating how to go about achieving it. This approach makes understanding so much more effective than mere reading of books/literature. Various mentors provide the much needed connection for sharing the difficulties in case one feels stuck up. They are always available for guidance and correction of mistakes. All in all, if you enjoy sketching or find it therapeutic, 'Pencil Perceptions' is definitely a right step in honing your skills irrespective of whether you aspire to be an artist or not.


on 24 Jun 2021

I am 5 months into this course and enjoying every bit of it. This course is perfectly designed for amateurs like me who dream to develop a future in realism art. They polish the basics first then move on to more technical and complex methods. This course has made me trust the process. Kudos to Sadashiv Sir and team for developing such a comprehensive training material. And not to forget, having a mentor is so beneficial. Getting your practice vetted by an expert at every step is really important to know that your are progressing in the right direction.

Each and every concept is explained so well. And they are always there for support and guidance. For people who want to learn realism just go for it.

This is the first time I have tried sketching, was skeptical in the start but now I am able to learn so much with proper guidance . It's a deep study and requires lot of patience. Having said that , the videos constructed by the PPA team is so easy to understand, focusing on the minute details and the work is doable. As a complete beginner I am able to manage the work well . My mentor Jill, is extremely supportive and have lot of patience in regards to the corrections and minute detailing. Consistency is very much required if you are planning to take this course.
