    Not really, no. Just make sure you can draw quickly, not just correctly, and make sure you can draw without a model/scene/object in front of you.

    If the academy only teaches life drawing, then you...

    It's a bit too late to fix the multitude of basic mistakes in perspective and lighting after you had rendered everything in high detail. Next time, ask these questions at the sketch stage. :)

    Picasso might have had a big hand at degeneration of the art scene into the pop art pandemonium we have now, but these drawings show anything but degeneration. He is clearly searching for the essence...

    I went from intuitive (read: incorrect, hit or miss) drawing to a more regular constructive method of going from general to detailed, with additional sketches in the process. I hadn't felt the need...

    In my experience, measuring angles and finding parallels are the most useful methods, while measuring for lengths is the least useful one.

    You should focus on structure, lighting, anatomy, holding the pencil correctly, and joining a figure drawing class ASAP.

    Since you are so intent on portraits, here's a book: "Drawing Head and...

    And yes, I can name more than one case like that. In my case, most prominently, that would be Boris Vallejo.

    Yes, you should. In the worst case, you'll be corrected and learn something new. :) In any case, analyzing others' works and putting your thoughts into writing will train your own skill, and give a...

    Do quick studies, return to them later. Learn to work in quick stints. Learn to focus on the process, not the result or the environment.
