The Roadmap & Community section
Just wondering what thoughts are on what’s coming from the roadmap and where the community sees priority needs? I think a lot of people have dropped off the community section (?) but I’d like to see them back and see see it really thrive and grow here (aside the courses and challenges which are already great). My thoughts on what is missing at the moment: - to be notified when someone you follow posts work to their album, possibly by also setting up dedicated published vs WIP albums - Commenting on albums/personal walls - Sketchbooks/journals, for members to track their progress through the courses, general art progress and thoughts, again with notifications - a dedicated critique section (like the ‘ask for help’ checkbox but it’s allowed in community/personal wall posts) - News - particularly Proko site/course news, but also somewhere for members to post Art related news/content for discussion, like a bulletin board - Personal messages and/or group chat - Maybe a few sub-categories in the Community section, though I’m not sure how deep or wide to go depending on how active it is. Could even add tags or something to allow searching/pseudo-categorisation. Keep up the great work, the content here is fantastic and I look forward to the future developments and growth.

Video not showing up at all
Hiya - I just bought Figure Drawing Fundamentals. Before I bought it, I was able to see the free lesson video thumbnails and click through onto YouTube. However, since I bought the premium course, the thumbnail area is blank with no way to see the videos. I've tried re-logging in, restarting my computer, disabling my adblock, and updating my web browser. Nothing has worked so far. Whether I click onto the lessons from "My Classroom" or from the "Browse Courses" page, I can't access the videos. Attached is a screenshot. Any ideas?

Meeting online friends who share the same location.
So I was thinking, maybe there could be a forum were students make their own events. And invite the people who live in the same city. It's almost as having a presential class but more open to meeting people with the same passion and interests.

Currency Conversion
I'm new around here, and I'm assuming the prices being displayed are in USD$, it would be really cool if we got some sort of automatic Currency Converter on the website for people outside of America. I need some peace of mind on how much exactly it is that I am paying in my local currency. thanks :) I'm from Australia btw

Drawing and painting surfaces, substrates, papers
Recently I was looking at Norman Rockwell charcoal comprehensive drawings and trying to understand how the rich textures were created. The surface was so beautiful, like fine bread crust. We decided it must be connected to the type of paper used, but couldn't imagine what it was or how to access something like that. Suggestion, a section or lesson or podcast devoted to the subject of what we draw and paint on. There's so much out there about what tools and media to draw with, but relatively little is said about what we're drawing on. The interaction of drawing tool with surface is so important. There's also the issue of longevity. It would be great to help demystify this topic. What are popular brands, what do they do. If they are colored how long will the color last? Are there inexpensive ways to create durable surfaces? Etc. What do you think?

Course Suggestion - Environments
It would be awesome to have a course on backgrounds, environments, and layouts. Everyone wants to be a character artist but I’m really more interested in environments!

Date on Lesson or Assignment
For many lessons in courses there are associated assignments. It would be nice to see when the lesson was posted to know how long the assignment has been assigned for. For example, here is a lesson page with an assignment associated to it. This would be useful because the assignments in this course have a feedback video that's associated with them once they have been turned in.

Can I create a study Group?
First of all, im posting this as an idea, I don't know if it is allowed or not. I bought the figure drawing course, and I just finished the gesture part. but sometimes I find it hard to push myself to complete it. The idea is to create a small 3 to 5 people group where we meet once a week (like on google meet ) to discuss each section until the course is completed. The dynamics will be the following: -The idea is that you watch the videos and do the exercises. -I will be doing the same, and in each meeting, I will share my notes and discoveries. -If you just want to go in to listen, you can do it. If you want to participate you can also. -the idea is to push each other to complete the course. Please let me know if this is allowed to do here, in case it's not I´ll delete this post ;) Also let me know if you think this is a good idea or not :) something tells me this could be either a really good idea or a really bad one but I don't know why... :s

Would a thumbnail gallery view work for the submissions to the Proko Challenge?
Right now, the submissions feel like an endless scroll and each submission takes up a big chunk of the screen. I feel like it would be useful to have all the submissions in a thumbnail gallery view (3-4 artworks per row) to see what people made for the Proko challenge. I know I can filter the list by new and oldest but this is just a suggestion in case the old posts get buried in the endless scroll and they might not get as much upvotes since they're so far down the list.

videos missing timestamps in the course 'drawing fundamentals: accuracy, values, & light'
hi i noticed in dorian iten's course 'drawing fundamentals: accuracy, values, & light', a few of the videos seem to be missing timestamps. specifically this is affecting the videos 'values from observation', 'creating realism', and 'inventing light'. this also seems to be affecting the duration on the overview page, as the reported value is 1 hour 5 minutes, and according to my math the correct value is actually 2 hours 21 minutes i don't know if this is the only affected course. i quickly looked over the other courses i have access to and didn't see anything similar, but i can't say anything about the rest thanks for your time

3D Model Crashing
I am currently unable to use the 3D Models on my Macbook using either the Firefox or Safari browsers. The problem started today. Firefox crashes and Safari reloads saying there was a problem. I've tried the external obliques and the shoulder models.

Suggestion: addition of Discord server
I personally have found the Discord community platform to be most functional for this application. Real time voice/video/sharing. REAL TIME! Voice! Video! Sharing! Great for the community in general but many uses become apparent such as classes and workshops... all under one platform!(PS Art-wod has successfully implemented its usage.) Thanks.

Clear all - Notifications?
Hi there, I often find it hard to lose the red dot that shows how many new notifications there have been, even if I scroll down through and click on them all one by one - would a "Clear All" button at the top be a good idea? Jo

Suggestion : tap center to pause video
Hi, i'm watching my first video on my tablet, and i pause a lot, every time i need to hit the screen, wait a little, and then tap pause. Tap on center (or double tap) to pause video would be great on a tablet. Thanks a lot and keep the good work :)

Dark Mode?
Hey I am new so I may have missed it somewhere but as of right now, the website is kinda hard to look at especially when reading or entering in information. I know it is super nitpicky but if there is not a way to enable dark mode, are there plans for a dark mode?
