    We are so happy to finally offer monthly subscription rates at You asked and now we're ready! We wanted to offer this for a long time but have been waiting until we had enough classes to move forward.


    By subscribing to SVS you gain access to ALL of our classes, tutorials, and demos. As long as your subscription is active you can watch as many classes as you want, as often as you want, from multiple devices, and in different locations. We don't make you pay any extra fees either - jump from class to class or watch one from beginning to end. We know many people are on tight budgets, and we've been asked about payment plans for our classes. The subscription plan was our answer to that problem.


    From now until August 1st 2015 new subscribers will be "grandfathered" in at the current introductory price which will go up on Aug 1st. Tell a friend before we switch to our regular price!


    You can choose to pay month by month or year by year at a substantial discount.


    Only interested in one class? That's fine, you have the option to purchase any class and own it for life. Also, subscribers get a special 25% discount on all class purchases. So you can always have it there for reference even after your subscription runs out.


    If you need to travel to remote locations with spotty or no wi-fi you've got options with SVS. Every class purchase comes with a download option. Subscribers get the download free with every class purchase. Not a subscriber? Purchase a class and the download for a small additional fee.


    We will be offering new tutorials, classes, and demos under our subscription plan each month. Our goal is to add new content many times during each month as we grow. Any new material we add will be yours for no additional charge if you're subscription is current. Here's what's coming in the following months!

    Drawing with Digital Pencils in Photoshop - Will Terry - July
    Drawing and Painting on a wacom tablet demo - Jim Madsen - July
    How to Ink Like a Pro - Jake Parker - August
    Designing Emotion In Characters Demo - Brandon Jeffords & Jake Parker - September
    Watercolor Sketchbooks - Marco Bucci - Nov
    Drawing on the iPad in Procreate - Will Terry - Nov


    SVS would not be where it is today without the support of our students. This is a living, breathing, evolving website and we appreciate all the feedback and suggestions we've received from class members. If you have any questions, comments or concerns please let us know by sending us a message on our contact page.

    Thanks, and hope to see you in class!

  • This is awesome. I've been waiting for this forever.

  • So have I - we had to wait until we had enough content - but now we'll be creating new classes each month to add to the library!

  • Fantastic! Thanks SVS Team!

  • ahh, thats great! count me in!

  • Count me in. Just subscribed. How long does the process take?

  • Great news. Thank you guys!

  • So excited! You guys are awesome!

  • Good Golly Miss Molly!!!
    Have you seen the massive collection of videos and classes in the SVS library lately? Everything an artist needs to be making a profit from their work is available there. Some classes selling for $300. My second question. Have you gotten your subscription to the entire library for as little as $9.99 a month? Never have I seen this kind of content for such a fraction of what it is worth. Remember on the 1st of August the price goes up. What are you waiting for? Thanks Will and Jake and all at SVS.

  • Thank you Steven! We couldn't ask for a better endorsement 🙂 ...we knew that many of our students just couldn't afford each class separately so this was our answer - we hope it's sustainable - it was a leap of faith 🙂

  • I subscribed immediately! SVS Learn is the best. Thanks so much.

  • Hey guys, quick technical question - does the streaming video player allow you to manually set the "quality" like in YouTube? My ADSL connection is a bit ordinary and can only just handle 720.

  • SVS OG

    @Rowan-Ferguson Good question. I don't have an answer, but I can ask our web guy.

  • Amazing! I have taken 4 classes or webinars from Jake and Will - all of them have been fantastic. "10 Steps to Digital Painting" and "Creative Composition" were outstanding and totally convinced me to convert an almost entirely digital workflow. I can't speak highly enough of what a great service you provide to the artistic community and I am so excited to start digging into more courses with the new subscription model.

  • @Jake-Parker Thanks Jake. Even if setting the quality explicitly is not supported I suspect the browser would be smart enough to serve a lower res version if the browser window was smaller. I'm going to go ahead and subscribe anyway, but keen to hear what your web guy says.

    @Rowan-Ferguson He went camping for the week so I'll have to get back to you next week sometime.

  • No, I think subscribers can only stream. We get a hefty discount if we want to purchase for permanent download. I think they want to prevent someone from subscribing for only a month and downloading every class and then unsubscribing. It would take months to go through all these videos...not to mention how handy it would be to use as a reference over and over again...

  • You can download handly pdfs with the class content and practice tasks, so you can use these offline to study. That's a good thing to have after watching classes.

  • Just subscribed and I'm kind of new to the whole community thing, but I'm so excited to learn more. Nice to meet all.

    I subscribed the second I heard about it, so so worth it! A fantastic deal! 😃
