Faim Arts- Achieving realism


zero to hero book cover


You can, for the price of a day's meal or less
Between early 2020 and late 2021, I have gone from having no knowledge and skill in drawing and no familiarity with realism whatsoever to creating masterpiece after masterpiece every time I hold a pencil and so desire. Achieving realism for me is now no longer an event, but a consistent habit. Through this period, I've learnt a lot through sheer dedication, but the bedrock of all I've learnt is that: any knowledge or skill that can be acquired, can be taught. This is why as a part of my career goals to "help other aspiring artists achieve their goals", I am releasing this e-book to share both my knowledge and my process with you.


The book contains 164 pages of content for pencil artists at both beginners and intermediate levels. The examples used within the book are done using graphite and charcoal media, however a lot of the concepts explained are not medium restricted. Hence, any artist can pick the book, read it and come out on the other side a realism artist in spite of whatever medium they use, however the best gains would be achieved by those who use black and white medium due to total relatability. Also, IT DOESN'T MATTER IF YOU HAVE NEVER DRAWN BEFORE. I've curated the topics not only to teach you everything you need, but also to take you FROM ABSOLUTE ZERO TO CONFIDENT REALISM PENCIL ARTIST WITHIN TWO MONTHS. It contains step by step explanations and practice exercises set to help you COVER A LOT OF GROUND IN A SHORT SPACE OF TIME.


The books answers practically, most fundamental questions on realism. It contains things like:
  • why we pursue realism and it's difference to resemblance
  • the potentials of realism
  • components of realism
  • pencil grips and pressure control
  • how to get accurate outlines
  • 12 most used shading techniques tutorials
  • 18 different texture drawings tutorials
  • graphite vs charcoal in drawing
  • facial features tutorials
  • portrait drawings tutorials
  • basic facial proportions
  • common mistakes to avoid towards achieving realism
  • and other miscellaneous stuffs like

  • realism and drawing surfaces
  • material recommendations for different levels of pencil artists
  • when to use grids or freehand
  • making money from realistic art drawings etc.

My promise to you about this book is that it will get you from absolutely zero knowledge about drawing to a professional realism pencil artist within two months. However, it won't work like magic. There are material requirements, there is a way I recommended that the book should be read, and there are a ton of time-taking practice exercises. THIS BOOK IS NOT FOR YOU IF...
  • You don't want to get any necessary material but you want results
  • You want to read the book anyhow you like without following the recommendations
  • You want results without putting in the work to do the exercises
  • You don't really want to achieve realistic results in your drawings


The current selling price for this e-book version is #3,500/$10.


Like I mentioned earlier, I have a learnt a lot. Learning has cost me lots of money and time, and practicing to refine my knowledge and skill has cost me more. Also, there's the fact that there's a world of difference between having knowledge and having the ability to impart it. The process of putting together this book for you has also taken a lot of mental activity and physical effort. The financial reward you're giving therefore isn't so much for the knowledge (as that is worth way more, actually worth all satisfaction and the money you'll make from your art if you choose to build a business from it as a result of this book). Instead it's for the effort it takes me to get it to you. Think of it as "thank you" gift for packaging and sharing all the information present in the book.


If you don't buy it, the book will still be available for you nonetheless, with all the transformation and future success it offers. I'm still releasing all that information even if you choose to turn your eyes away. However, you'll be holding to that little extra cash instead of trading it in exchange for improvement in your art which can potentially build you a successful career, all things being equal. If you don't buy, you'll still be the same, with the passion to create realistic drawings but no skill to fulfil it. Not buying would be a choice, but MAYBE NOT THE BEST CHOICE for you. I promised you less than two months to achieving realism, but if you don't buy, your journey will likely be much longer than that, and hopefully, that is not what you want.


The book IS NOW AVAILABLE at the click of a button.
