What's shakin', dearhearts?
As my most recent poll indicates, I'll be offering some online courses soon.
I'll post here and through my social networks when they're available.
It seems digital painting is an interest most hold. Considering the poll only allows for one choice, though, feel free to sound off in the journal comments about anything else you'd like me to teach.
Note regarding the courses:
I'm working out how many weeks they'll be, but it seems I can take on a subject and add modules as long and often as I see fit. Payment for each course will be up front, and content will be added as we go along.
I might also create some that are free, lower in cost, or filled with content from the get-go.
It's all a bit of experimenting.
In short, the price will range from $40-150, at this time. Hours of content will range from 2.5-10+ --> This may change a lot.
I'll see how the first few go, and offer what I can at different values.
This isn't just me offering tutorials (but I am doing that too -- keep reading!) -- these are assignments, demos, and proper instruction. I do local (ish -- I drive a fair bit) private art tutoring, and have been for some 4 months now. Expanding it to a wider audience (and one not exclusively of kids) is an exciting venture for me. It's also one of the many ways I'm making a living now. 2012 was pretty weird -- adjusting from my position as Creative Director and partner with Apparel Dynasty, saying goodbye (mostly) to Acrylicana®, closing my Etsy shop, and beginning anew.
Now, for other tutorials, I'm starting with some vector ones online. I'll have proper links as they're published. Seems like most will be free for you all, but some will be premium content as well. I'll keep up some youtube videos and live feeds when I can (most of the work I'm doing isn't something I can share publicly when it's in progress -- that's been the downside of the last few years of doing professional work full-time).
Sadly, I was not able to offer 2013 calendars this year, due to my schedule. Hopefully I can do 2014 or offer monthly downloads instead
(these would be free -- why the hell not, right?)
I'm still REALLY keen on doing an art book. I could compile old work into one, but I want to do something FRESH, without Acrylicana®. Although my art style remains (somewhat) the same, new content and less retrains should make things more fun. SO, more about all of that later (I've got so many outlines for such things -- now's a great time to do them...and it'd build up my portfolio, give me great videos and content for tutorials/etc).TLDR:
Classes will have a wide price range. Stay tuned for free content, premium content, and more. Feel free to discuss what you'd like to learn in the comments. I'm open to suggestions.
