Svs vs skillshare and udemy



  • @NessIllustration I think I’m gonna sign up. Besides theirs a 30 day trial. You said lee is great at social media. Does he do classes on it.



  • @Ari-Sorokin Ness hit the nail on the head. The only thing I would add is this question: Did you try the free trial yet? That would be the best way to find out if the site would work well for you. I know I've been learning TONS from these classes, and would definitely recommend SVS over any of those udemy-type platforms.



  • @Ari-Sorokin there's a reason they give out free trials because the classes are so addictive. Also after the free trial it's only $25 or $30 a month, I can't remember, but it's a ridiculously good value considering what you're getting in return.
    A quick breakdown-
    Anything to do with color go take the Will Terry classes
    Want to have your mind blown about how to draw go to the Jake Parker classes
    Lee White's business classes are in your face not messing around truth bombs and honestly it's hard for artists to find the kind of content he provides.
    The one drawback for me is that they convinced me I needed a cintiq so I could be faster and draw and paint more, now I'm broke!😰


  • Pro

    @Ari-Sorokin Jake is the social media master actually. He is the creator of the Inktober challenge, pretty cool huh? He has a class called "Your first 10k instagram followers" or something like that.


  • SVS OG

    @Ari-Sorokin try the 1-month free trial and see for yourself.


  • SVS OG

    @JudeKillory 😂😂😂 you could’ve just bought a cheap cintiq alternative tho.



  • @JudeKillory how addictive are the classes



  • I agree with everyone’s comments here. I am new to SVS but think the amount and quality of content is fantastic. The forum also offers the chance to get honest feedback from peers who range from novices like myself to those who are working illustrator and artists. To get a flavour of the three illustrators personalities it’s worth listening to the Three Point Perspective podcast, it’s a great listen and reflects the style of the classes very well.



  • @Ari-Sorokin hello! Same comment : try it for free for a week. Not only you'll get a feel of the education, but also if you can technically take the courses. My experience, for exemple, revealed that my computer is too old : the sound and the video didn't synchronise therefore I didn't enroll. That being said, I am still learning bits and pieces on the forum by simply reading and seeing people's artwork and improvement. It has been nearly 2 years!! There is a great atmosphere here and I am convinced it participates to the learning curve.

    I also tried skillshare for a month, did as many courses as I could but concluded : quality varies and the research tool to access the full library is poorly designed. It makes it hard to find relevant content and organise the courses in a practical way to progress. All in all it was a disappointment.



  • @Ari-Sorokin I have watched a lot of content, I have even watched some classes twice. In general stick with the newer versions. There's a reason they've updated them(mostly editing out class critique sessions that aren't that useful) but I have spent days upon days during the pandemic watching SVS content. It is definitely more expensive but on Drawing America's website Will Weston does anatomy and composition classes that are phenomenal.
