I signed up at the monthly rate. I really like the site. Can I switch to your annual membership?

Of course we recommend that you subscribe to our annual plan. That way you won’t miss out on any new content. First cancel your membership under “My Account”. Then sign back up here.

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.

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.
