RE: AUGUST COMPETION TOPIC: MUSIC
Here’s my submission. I asked my musician friend to name some of his favorite instruments he’s played. I learned a lot researching these. I’ll post my wip in another post. I wanted to hit the deadline but I’ll probably keep working on this. Had a lot of fun making this image. Jude

RE: June Prompt - Low hanging fruit
@Kevin-Longueil looking back at it I realized that the twisting tail of C isn't isolated the whole body of the alligator is corkscrewing into the air, it feels connected which makes me wish the monkey was twisting more. To make it more aligned as an image.
RE: MAY CONTEST: ISOLATION
@Joshua-Dages Thank You Joshua! It was done with gouache. Might be my favorite medium. It lives between watercolor and acrylic in a beautiful matte and opaque area. Dries fast and plays well with other mediums. Mary Blair did a lot of work in gouache.
RE: Hello! also, please give critique
@yego this is great, agree with the skin tone criticism earlier also do we need the clouds around the surfer’s head and sharks teeth? Love the lighting in the water, creates an authentic underwater atmosphere. Maybe one too many sharks swimming around-would like to focus more on the main players. Or maybe show the teeth on the other sharks since teeth are the theme. The image looks finished though so I assume you probably won’t rework it, which is ok because it’s pretty great as is. Jude
RE: Some thoughts on my drawing?
I wish there was more dramatic tension in the little bunny’s body. Like he was really struggling to pick up that sword. The face is great, put some of that emotion into his torso and back. It would also be a nice contrast to the serenity of the older bunny.

Dear NYFA Community:
NYFA has partnered with The Maurice Sendak Foundation (MSF), which has seeded a new emergency relief grant program for children’s picture book artists and writers who have experienced financial hardship from loss of income as a direct result of the COVID-19 crisis. The Maurice Sendak Emergency Relief Fund, administered by NYFA, will distribute unrestricted grants of up to $2,500 apiece until the fund has run out. MSF has granted $100,000 to NYFA to begin the program. The initial goal for the fund is $250,000 with hopes that it will expand. Those interested in donating to the fund may do so here.
The application will open in Submittable on Thursday, April 23 at 1:00 PM EDT, and will close once 600 applications are received. Funds will be awarded to eligible applicants in the order in which applications are received.
We encourage you to visit our regularly-updated Emergency Grants page for more COVID-19 specific resources that may be available to you during this time.
Who can apply:
Applicants must be children’s picture book artists and/or writers who have published at least one picture book in the last five years (between 2015 and 2020) or who has a book currently under contract.

Applicants must show documented losses of income for the period of February 1 - July 30, 2020.

RE: Svs vs skillshare and udemy
@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!
