Which Courses Do I Take If...

  • ...I want to learn how to draw landscapes (mainly wildlife)? I'm currently taking the Beginner's composition class, but when I go into the "intermediate" level, there are so many to choose from. Do I start with "Creative Environment Design" or something else? It's been hard to process information lately and put it into use in the composition workbook we're given, and I've been a bit more than lost...

    Edit: Basically, where do you start when it comes to wanting to learn how to make landscapes? I've tried keeping myself focused on the Composition class, but I keep drifting away from it. Do I start with Light and Shadow, or any of the Color and Light classes? How do I keep paying attention and putting effort into them? I want to improve but ever since January, I've just been kind of... sitting here. I hate it.

    Please reply.

    Do the Creative Environment class, and check out Marco Bucci's classes as well. And go outside and LOOK at landscapes. Really study them, the way the sky fades in the horizon and so on 🙂 Good luck!

  • Hi! I've seen several of the videos and just revisited Marco Bucci's videos. I think he's got a lot of good info on landscapes and backgrounds, light, and color. The one of live critiques has a lot of good info. Each and every course available overall has great info. So, no matter where you start, you'll always get something good. Hope this helps. Cheers!

  • Thanks you guys, I'll be sure to check out his classes straightaway!
    The thing that daunts me a bit is that I'll have to start coming up with my own landscapes soon... sure, using reference is always a thing, but. I dunno. It's hard to explain.
