Welcome to my website!
My name is Jasmina Susak. I am a self-taught, colored pencil artist and author of many how-to-draw books. I create colored pencil drawings of subjects ranging from wildlife to celebrities. Many of my drawings are accompanied by videos that show the techniques behind them. At the end of 2014, I decided to share my experience with those interested in drawing after countless questions and queries from my followers and watchers on a daily basis. I came up with a solution that is no other than writing books about my drawing experiences and share my extensive knowledge. I've been selling these how-to-draw books online and most of them are listed on Amazon and my website where my eBooks can be downloaded. I am really surprised by the number of people who are interested in drawing. Others are just curious about the process of drawing and want to peep behind the curtain to see how such work is done, and want to have a nice book with interesting drawings. This makes me feel even more inspired to do and offer more and provide and share my knowledge in drawing through my books and demonstrational videos.
In my stint being a colored pencil artist, most of the comments/questions that I receive on a daily basis are: "How do you draw like that?", "Which colored pencils you use?", "How can you draw so realistically with just colored pencils?", "How do you mix the colors?", "What do you use to blend your colored pencils?" "Which colors should I use for the human skin?", "Does the kind of paper matter?", "Can you give me some tips to draw better?", and many more. Browse through these pages and you'll find the answers to all these questions. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me. I will reply within 12 hours. Also, don't forget to leave some comments, so I can notice that you've stopped by.
