What do you want to learn?



  • @Kevin-Longueil Thanks Kevin. Very thought out answer. Next time I will go with simplicity. I am taking Marco's computer painting class on SVS and he states, simplicity is a quicker read which makes for better story.! Here is a new piece I am working on. I took the references I will be using and made a FPO before I start drawing.Dega-photo-comp.jpg



  • @Lee-White How is the business course coming along? I'm stoked for that one :)

    Ace



  • I think there should definitely be a class on storyboarding.



  • I would really like to see a class on painting characters digitally, focusing on the face and maybe the body too: the features, the colours, how to render skin...
    The video from brett snyder is great but seeing it digitally would be a great plus. Besides, this is such a tough subject, that I think that several videos, with different approaches and styles, would be very interesting



  • My wish list:

    1- Class that goes deep into creating a great portfolio. From creating the images to setting up the website.
    2- Some add on's for the the existing business classes by Lee White getting a little deeper into creating your promotional materials and trying to get your first paying job.
    3- Paid portfolio critique session with all three of you would be awesome. It would be even more awesome if you could get an art director or an agent to do it with you. I think it would be really helpful to all of us to see how a trained eye looks at some of our portfolios and what turns them off right away or what they like.



  • Digital painting in other programs, such as Clip Studio Paint or Sketchbook Pro.

    Perhaps a course on doing art conventions.

    Traditional coloring approaches like colored pencils, Copic markers, watercolors, etc. And seconding:

    @Jack-B said in What do you want to learn?:

    I know this is a little bit late, however I really really would like to see some tutorials on creating 3D models in Maya or zbrush. I feel like they can be really useful even when you are just setting up 2D scenes etc. It would help a lot with composition and I am sure there are a lot of people that could help teach it.

  • Hi Jake

    Things to learn / Classes I'd like to have:

    • I'd like to have a class focusing on the schools of thought in animation and illustration and how they differ - Marco Bucci mentioned the 'animation school of thought' in his class and I was hoping to learn more about this way of thinking and how it compares to the other approaches.
    • A class on prop design and stylization (wonky vs real vs abstract etc). It's been touched on several classes with the environments and characters but it would be great to have one dedicated to it.
    • Storyboarding for film (I haven't watched the Drawing Comics yet, but it probably includes sb?)

    Artists I'd like to see demonstrate:
    Armand Serrano, Paul Felix, Marcelo Vignali, Cory Loftis (and/or).

    So far I have been so happy with the classes and have been enjoying them thoroughly!
    Thanks!



  • Hi! For those starting out....ABC in illustration...how to apply sketch book refs into images suitable for text/promts...maybe do a series of small lessons...step by step....If this is already embedded in other lessons just ignore!😊



  • Hi Jake,
    I would like to learn more about a few specific website creating sites maybe that you all use for your portfolios and how to go about setting them up. Portfolio and Self Promotion with James Yang was a great video about portfolios, I would like to learn more about the actual nuts and bolts of a few of the most popular website creators out there. Thanks and all the best, really looking forward to Inktober this year...
