Stan ”Do you REALLY need to sit while you listening to this?!” Me: lies down in bed due to illnes
I have an illness so I can’t stand up or work out 🙁 I have ME/CFS so I lay down big amount of the day. (Excercise makes it worse) I sit in my armchair When im watching tv or/and make art. Ive made a special armchair table so i can draw or sculpt comfortable from there. A good day i can walk maybe 10 minuites. But this illness also made me find art again and give me time to really develope my skill and learn it all. But another good thing for a healthy mind is meditation and mindfulness. I do that
Justin Sweet reminds me of Kekai Kotaki - concept artist for Guild Wars 2! Also: this was totally worth the watch. I usually don't have the patience for podcasts, but this one was very entertaining and informative!
Hi Everyone!!! I'm really excited to start this course. I've been watching Proko videos and Draftsmen episodes for about a year now and was really excited to hear about the basics course. Also, I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned this but the,"The dot and the line" book Marshal mentioned was animated by Chuck Jones. I remember watching it when I was a kid after hearing him describe it. You can check it out on Youtube. Good luck everyone!
I wasn't planning to watch this at first as i don't watch podcasts and thought it'll be the standard touch-and-go advice of "just keep drawing" and "everyone progresses differently". But i'm really glad i decided to give this a shot! Very informative and specific that i was attentively listening and watching till the end. Solid advice and inputs...and very much motivating too, thank you! ^^
What a great introduction into the course! I'm looking forward to having discussions with you people and improving as much as possible. :)
Thanks for this motivating podcast! I'm looking forward to the Drawing Fundamentals course.
Favorite podcast. The advice at the end about taking care of your health is so true!
Hello, how can I get my money back please? Decided to take the anatomy course instead.)
A happy hello to everyone! I'm from Finland, I'm 43 yeas old, and I delight in writing and drawing stories. To me, drawing and writing together make a whole other world, to which I tend to travel more often than not, admittely also during the hours I spend on a full time job that has little to do with anything remotely creative... I bear no guilt for that :). This world is a place where I simply love to be, and where I feel like I belong. As my passion lies in stories, my dream (and ambition) is to be able to draw pictures that tell stories. To capture moments, to portray a character's thoughts or feelings with facial expressions, and his intent with gesture. Maybe one day I have the skill to illustrate my own stories. Who knows, I feel this course is, in a way, a start to a journey of discovery and I'm excited to find out what I'll find along the way. I've watched Proko videos (and others) on YouTube for over a year, studied Andrew Loomis' books and other artists, practised when ever I can, and learned a lot. It's been a great learning journey so far, but it doesn't seem to be enough for me, and I want to learn more. And more after that. There is so much wonderful learning ahead of me. So my greatest interest is in character drawing and my focus has been mainly on portrait drawing, anatomy and gesture - digitally. This course, however, I want to do traditionally because I think using pen and paper prevents me from taking any of those very tempting short cuts that a drawing tablet provides. I find that using digital tools, for example to tweak and mesh linework, actually slows down my learning of drawing shapes, or structure, or measurments, or perspective, or gesture, because I'm not putting enough work into the thinking process (the how and why). So! Paper and pencil for me on this course, I'm ready to put in the work. Also I kind of miss the feel of paper, and well, paper smells good too. I'm looking forwards to working with you all, to sharing the joy when we get it right and especially the horror of not getting it at all. Let's discover all of Stan and Marshall's secrets. A special thanks to you, Stan and Marshal, for that Draftsmen Exclusive episode. I appreciated it a lot, and enjoyed your inspiring and useful talking points. And hi, very nice to meet you!
