Not sure if this is what you are looking for, but lately I've been listening to Sketch Zone Podcasts and next to the SVS podcasts these have become my favorite company during my drawing sessions. You can listen to it, but they also provide video where they show art related to the topic or artist they have as a guest.

How to do a digital master study?
I have become obsessed with the podcasts and the one thing that stood out from them was 'do master studies'!!!
Lee suggests you do a master study and afterward create an artwork of your own applying what you've learned.
I've done my first master study a few months ago, but that was based on an actual painting. I know how to paint, I know the logic behind how it works, so figuring out what the artist did isn't that difficult.
After listening to the podcast and making a list of artists I like, I realized Marco Bucci is on there...
I've looked at his paintings, I've watched his tutorials on SVS... I still feel it's total chaos 99% of the time and then out of nowhere, there is an amazing colorful artwork.
The options while painting digitally are endless. Software, brushes, colors, patterns,... How do you even start a master study of this?
Another thing, is it useful to do a traditional master study of digital artwork (if that is even possible)?
RE: Introducing myself :)
Thank you all for the warm welcome.
Currently, my art doesn't relate to any storytelling, but I hope to gradually change that in the future and build my skills while doing so.
@Gary-Wilkinson I hope I can participate soon. I've been checking out the last contests and I usually never have a problem coming up with an idea, I just didn't have the time to execute it. Now that I have more time to art, I should be able to schedule it in.
RE: Episode 03 - Ship Happens
I really like the podcasts. There is no video so you don't need to watch the screen to see if you've missed some information. That is why they have become my favorite company during my drawing activities.
I'm not working as an illustrator, my art is mainly just a hobby, but even then the topics are interesting and inspiring. You never know what the future might bring.
The notes are handy as well. I like that I can go check them for links to the artists you all talk about.
Keep them coming.
Introducing myself :)
My name is Murielle, I'm from Belgium and I still find it hard to call myself an artist, but I'm doing it anyway. I'm an artist.
I became a proud SVS member in September 2017 in preparation for Inktober. It was the 'How to Ink' tutorial that got me on board. Well done Jake :D
For years Inktober was this one challenge that I wanted to be part of but in Oktober 2016 I was preparing for my first ever fitness competition. I had to train every day, watch my diet, sleep well,... So no time to draw. That moment was a complete eye opener for me. Fitness was not what I wanted to do. So in 2017 I decided I was going to do my first Inktober and I loved it. It made me discover talents I didn't know I had...
- drawing WITHOUT reference
- telling a story with one image
- okay the inking part turned out to be the least interesting, but still, I did it
These are my favorite pieces
After that experience, I wanted more so I started a Christmas themed dry brush painting based on the class given by Will Terry. I kept it simple so I could focus on the technique.
In March 2018 I've given up fitness completely and focus now mostly on my art. I hope to be more active on this forum but I can't give any promises. I'm a quiet person, so I usually read and marvel in silence.
