• 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! 😃

  • Hi I'm hoping to get some technical help. I'd really like to purchase the yearly subscription, but I seem to be having some issues. I'm from outside the U.S., and don't have the required zip code. I have a Canadian postal code, which the system doesn't seem to want to recognize. Is it possible for people outside the US to register? I've been attempting to use my Visa, and the registration page keeps asking me to try again. I know there's no problem with my actual credit card, so I'm wondering if I'm out of luck?

  • @Shannon-Blakeman It shouldn't be a problem, I live in Europe. But as for the technical part I'am sorry I cant Help you. You can Send an E-mail to, Alison will help you sort it out for sure!

  • Thank you very much Leontine! I will give the e-mail a try and see if someone can help me. I watched the video critiques on the most recent 3rd Thursday, and learned a ton! I am eager to subscribe by the end of the month : )

  • This is just amazing. You really know what we need to become successful illustrators. I feel like I have found a place on the internet where I belong. You guys are awesome.

  • The subscription service is fantastic! Even if I have seen a video, I like to repeat it while I'm working, and having access to this wealth of information is wonderful. Thank you!

    I'm loving it! There is so much to learn. I get a little discouraged looking at my sketchbooks after watching you guys draw All these amazing things on the fly, but I know it just takes time and practice. Trying to draw everyday and watching classes when I can. Thanks for making it affordable.

  • @Pamela-Fraley Hi Pamela, Don't get discouraged, because we all have to learn so much! SVS really helps you to grow quickly! It's also very motivating to work together in this forum, and I am sure you'll get benefit from that as well! Go for it!

  • I could have sworn there was a Zbrush class. Was it taken down (or retired)? I signed up a few days ago so it's possible there never was one...

  • @Cory-White
    There was definitely a Zbrush video, Although I have no idea what happened to it.

  • Was just looking for the ZBrush series as well. I had started watching a week or so ago, but didn't get to finish it 😕
