Hello and thank you both for being here. Why is that even today illustration is not taken as serious as fine arts even if it also takes a lot of hard work?
Erik, have you ever used Stan as a nude model? Will you ever use Stan as a nude model in the future? Will it be posted on Proko.com?

I am trying to differentiate myself from my peers, do you recommend any good books on rendering technique for drawing and painting?
Hi Erik and Meadow, I am a big fan of your art and the Watt's Atelier online lessons. How should someone learn to draw to a professional standard when time is a limiting factor as they are full-time employed in something unrelated to art? - I spend 10-20 hours a week still on art so time management isn't the issue. Also, If knowing that I am doing the right type of learning is the problem, would mentoring be the only way to ensure you are learning the right thing? PS. Kristian or whoever reads this question is a bae!

What types of work did Disney and Viking Children's Books ask you to complete? How could someone align there studies for success with those types of work?
I love Erik's figurative artwork. How long did you actually study Anatomy while training and for how many hours you used to practise?
Not a question, just wanted to say - when someone commented Eriks work on instagram, that he wish to draw like him - Erik replied, that there is nothing special about him - it is just hard work. Its nothing life changing - but impact on me was huge. So anyway, thanks for your art and stay safe!
Hi. What must be included in a good current illustratoon portfolio? And what pitching advice can you give a beginer freelancer
I am 15 yrs old boy and I am trying my best to understand everything I need to know about art on proko and elsewhere to achieve that dream. I am planning to be a self taught artist using proko.com and other art websites to help my grow. Questions: 1. Could you give me the difference between a concept artist and an illustrator because I want to be them both in the gaming industry someday. 2. When being a self taught artist, would I get less money working in the gaming industry because I have not graduated from a physical art college? 3. Would I hinder myself from getting jobs or a fan base because I don’t have an art degree? 4. Could you give a summary of what it is like working in the gaming industry? 5. Why do you two are so interested in art? 6. What could I do right after I am out of school meanwhile I am learn art and eventually applying for Jobs in the industry? 7. Where would I apply for different companies worldwide? 8. What are some encouragement you two could give to me for always continuing to love art? Thanks for your time in advance and for you lovely answers. I WANT TO WORK AT XBOX SOMEDAY 🥇🧨🥇
Please give some insights into illustrating for graphic novels and their covers as well. What should the process be for the planning out the panels and how is flow of story decided? For the cover, how is the title designed and how are both cover art and title graphics merged together?
Hi, i am currently recreating Art School at home inspired by the Draftsmen podcast and bought a couple of books to get started. Now I just wanted to ask what the most effective way to study from books is ? I am curently reading the book Drawing the head & hands by Andrew Loomis but i feel like im not studying it properly by just copying the drawings and reading the text.
