Hi Stan, thank you so much for the informative video. Above all, it made me smile :). Thank you I needed that. All your courses, I've purchased, are actually amazing, really thought through as far as the structure and content are concerned. The best
Sold :). Dear Andrew, I'm really looking forward to take your Figure Sculpting Fundamentals course. I was wondering, if the premium course will include critique/feedback for the assignments or even a sort of mentorship? Thank you
I am aware this is the place for reporting bugs, but... For one, I am still in the phase of orientation. And secondly, I haven't encountered with any troubles (well, once I couldn't see the very left edge of the screen, but the problem solved itself, when I closed and opened the tab). So far my overall experience is, I just love Proko 2.0. I really appreciate the structure and having all (my classroom courses – updated with critiques as not all were there when I bought the courses, new posts, feedback to other students works, and much more) at one place. I feel like being a part of a community. For me it is an unprecedented and just great opportunity for communication, inspiration, motivation and possibility to grow. Thank you
Thank you James Gurney and Stan for giving me the 1st prize! That was awsome experience to see James Gurney giving reaction to my artwork...! It’s like a dream come true! Already watched this youtube video about 20 times😃.
So instructive, clear and fun :) way of explanation. I really enjoyed the video, cannot wait for the online perspective course. I would have 2 questions. First, and I suppose it is a part of perspective lectures already available on your web (just haven't chance to watch them yet), anyway, is there a rule to "calculate" distance of lines going across the sphere/pumpkin (if they are intended to be regular)? And second; might I ask what kind of pen do you use at the end of the video? Thank you
Thank you for the question ☺️. I gave this a little think. What can you recommend for people who live in areas or countries where there is limited access to masters’ works? Probably you’re already covering relevant advice because of Covid-19. I live near Kyoto and Osaka, and we do have traveling exhibits come through, but they’re usually lesser known works that museums are willing to let travel. Exhibitions are usually small and expensive. They don’t allow any sketching or photography, writing instruments can be used for writing words only. Yes, they check! I don’t have the contacts yet to even attempt special access – if that is even possible here, and I have been reprimanded by guards for leaning in too close to the artwork, even though my feet were firmly on the correct side of the barrier. My pro artist friends refuse to go because of the cost, and they feel they can get better value from books and the internet. I think it’s better than nothing, but doesn’t hold a candle to living somewhere like So. Cal. I have found doing a deep dive into the featured artist and time period before going to dramatically improves the experience, but would love to hear your ideas on how I can take this to the next level. Please don’t say to move to where the art is as Steve Martin does in his Masterclass. Thank you so much! Love your work!
I'm really excited for this! Usually when I want to study a certain artist's work, I look them up on YouTube and watch a video of them drawing (Currently I am studying mostly comic book artists so this resource is available). That way I can see their process and not have to guess or assume anything. But unless there is a voice over of the artist talking as they draw, It's hard to understand what makes the drawing/painting 'feel' the way it does. How do you recommend approaching this subject? How can you study the 'feel' or 'mood' of the drawing without having insight into the artist's thought process?
Hi Stan, and Marshall, thank you for the opportunity to participate. Also thank you very much for all your hard work behind podcasts and online courses, much appreciated. I have several questions. Some, I suppose, will seem obvious, some might be silly, I apologize for that. Who are the masters to study? What artwork deserves to be called a masterpiece? What is included in studying masters? Is it their learning paths, preparation, way or work, all of that or "just" the final masterpiece its technique, color, composition, and/or how all of that serves the theme the final impression? And, I know it may sound disrespectful, but believe me it really is not. To what end do I study masters? Because if I know why, it might help to decipher how. Thank you.
