Once a Member, where do I start?

We’ve created short informative videos that will help you get the most out of your membership. Click on Start Here at the top navigation bar.

When should I move on from one course to the next?

Every artist learns at their own pace. It’s really up to each individual artist to decide how long each course should take. Understanding that the techniques taught in each course will take years to master.

For example with Figure Drawing A Layered Approach you can practice drawing lesson one, the rough skeleton for about two days before moving onto the three shapes technique. Understanding that you will have to revisit each technique periodically in order to master it. Of course this varies from member to member.

How can I get my drawings critiqued?

Every member can get one drawing critiqued per week in our Member Critique Gallery

We ask that you upload just one drawing a week along with it’s reference if applicable. We also ask that you include your name in the image description. Also tell us a a little bit about your image. It provides us with a little context for the critique.

I can't seem to upload an image from your PDF's to the Member Critique Gallery.

If you have a Mac simply press “Command – Shift – 4” all at the same time. Then drag your cursor over the image you want to copy. When you lift off the trackpad you will hear a camera sound. Your image will be located on your desktop. Simply save it as a jpg.

If you have a PC select the window that holds the image you would like to copy. “Hold the Alt key then press the Print Screen Button”. Your image should be saved to you clipboard. Simply save it as a jpg.

How often do you post new content in the membership area?

Every single Monday night we post up the Member Critiques as well as the Member Podcast. We do our best to upload content as often as possible. We are committed to creating quality courses that really help you improve your craft.
