. Week one has begun so do it fast if you're planning to.
The syllabus this time around is as follows:
Week 1 - Seeing & Drawing
Learn to train your eye with basic drawing and observation techniques. These are the basics that everything else is built on.
Week 2 - The Sketchbook Habit
Sketchbooks are the birthplaces of paintings. Learn to develop the habit of continual sketching and observation.
Week 3 - Perspective
That thing everyone hates. I'm going to break down perspective to the basics of what you need to learn and explain it as clearly as possible. Don't be afraid. It's not that scary.
Week 4 - Experiments in Drawing Materials
Learn to play around with new materials in drawing. We'll cover charcoal, graphite, pastel, ink, and perhaps others in an attempt to see what these mediums can offer us.
Week 5 - Experiments in Painting Materials
Most people paint digitally because they think traditional painting is expensive and/or complicated. But I'll show you how to do it. I promise you'll love it.
Week 6 - Basics of Digital Painting
I'm going to show you every trick, tool, and method I know for working digitally. Specifically designed for working in Photoshop.
Week 7 - Light & Form
Learning to draw & paint basic forms is a cornerstone of learning any new medium. These fundamental exercises will push our facility to the next level.
Week 8 - Narrative & Storytelling
Learn to communicate compelling narrative in visual and written form. Let's dive into the art of storytelling.
Week 9 - Sequential Art
Storyboards, comics, and other sequential art. Learn the freedoms and challenges that come with working with multiple images.
Week 10 - Photography & Reference
Get out your cameras. I'm going to show you how to use photography to improve your other artistic skills. Also we'll be talking about shooting good reference and using it effectively.
Week 11 - Digital & Traditional Sculpture
Learn to think entirely differently. Working in three dimensions will radically change how you approach your drawings. Trust me—you don't want to miss this.
Week 12 - Creating Work
you Love How to find your "style" and do work that you love.
I know at least 3 others on here are doing it so if you all fancy posting your work here we can maybe help each other out a bit, stay motivated and get some bonus critiques. And if anyone not doing it fancies having a crack at the assignments without the benefit of the tutorial then feel free obviously. The critiques are working a bit differently this time around as Noah now has a forum, and several instructors lurk around on there giving out advice as and when. So far they are pretty active, so things look promising. Hopefully it will remain that way!
As with the first thread, no links to the tutorials on here please.
