Been waiting three years for this. It's rewarding to see this part of the course finally coming into being.

It's all about addressing and resolving the emotions that brought me to the low place. Granted I have cPTSD (among other things) and thus am more "screwed up" than many people, but I still think that to get far with art study we all have to have something supporting us emotionally. What that looks like will vary from person to person but for me it's laying out a clear path to follow, knowing what "good enough" is so I know when to move on, being organized and knowing exactly what I want to work on when, having somebody approachable to critique my work, and probably most important having somebody safe that can lift me back up when things get rough and I fall apart. This is what sustainable art-study looks like for me. How about you? Have you considered the emotional side of things? Figured out anything yet about what helps or hinders you?

@Liandro Now I finally know what you sound like, haha! :) We had many a good conversation through Proko email back when getting critiques that way was a thing. You were so approachable and always read what I said carefully and wrote me thoughtful responses. You really helped my thinking as I navigated the messy journey toward being able to make the art I want to make. How are things going for you today? Are you still able to contribute to student growth as much as you want to?

Had it preordered before the promo video even finished playing! I've been waiting for this for a long time. I've been so in need of a compassionate, competent run through of the core fundamentals, especially construction. @Stan Prokopenko When you start releasing lessons in January, do you have a ballpark idea of how long it will take before all lessons are released? By ballpark I mean are we looking at months or years?

I enjoyed seeing your drawing. You're definitely above me in your ability to make an eye look convincing. I like how there's a wide range of values and the darks next to the lights. And how there's a lot of contrast where the iris is and lines pointing in toward the pupil. It really directs my attention toward the part of an eye I care about most. And I found the texture in the eyebrow interesting. The eyelashes are just meh to me but they look realistic. Real eyelashes are not always amazing. So that isn't necessarily a flaw!

When I click on it nothing happens. It's just an image. Also note how in the video list it doesn't look like a video, either.

Those of you that are learning on your own from books, videos, and whatever else you decide to use, what is your overall approach to art study? And how do you deal with problems like: -Knowing what to study, when, and for how long? -How do you keep the difficulty level appropriate--not so easy it's boring but not so hard you spend most of your time spinning your wheels and losing morale -Tracking your progress and actually being able to feel the sense of progression

Thank you for pointing this out. We are aware how confusing this is and will fix it in a near future release.

I got really confused wondering why the button wasn't there but when I navigated to my albums through my classroom > albums I was able to get the button. The place on the site where you can view your albums and add a new one, and the place on your profile where you cannot, they look very similar, so it communicated that were the same kind of "thing" in the system and my brain expected the same functionality, hence the confusion. My suggestion is either make these two ways of viewing an album look different or make it so there is an "add album" button with viewing your own albums on your own profile.
