Stan Prokopenko and Marshall Vandruff are art instructors. If you love the arts, particularly the craft of drawing and painting and image-making… and you want to level up your skills or even make a living with your skills, we are here to answer your questions. We’re here to offer you advice, refer you to our resources, share your love of the craft and maybe inspire you!
I know these might be all done now, but in case you'll do yet some more future episodes (also because I love to listen to these over and over), here's a topic I'd be interested in hearing you two talk about: Preservation of works and materials when it comes to the digital medium. Basic stuff like backups and local copies aside, there's a lot of uncertainty when it comes to digital artwork. Some of our resources, such as these episodes or other lessons are "out of our control" and might vanish one day, same goes to reference materials that are hosted elsewhere, even google may not exist forever. Another thing is that the file formats, tools and platforms may one day become obsolete and not run on anything anymore, things like games we have contributed our skills to might never run again in the future (Flash is a good past example of this). A lot of artists don't really think about this at all and many things we do thesedays there is no consideration to the future, I think people should care more. Honestly physical resources like books are still the best.
Need more Draftsmen!!! Or a new podcast under a different banner. As long as Stan and Marshall are together and spreading the gospel of the artist then everything in the world is in the right place.....well perhaps not but it will sure feel that way!
Hi, Stan and Marshall! I hope you guys do an episode about how to approach color and value in the later episodes. Keep up the awesome work!
These videos are not only always the highlights of my week, but are also giving me a sense of momentum. They serve as a weekly reminder of what my goals are dreams are. I'm really gald thjat you gyus are back from break, I felt much more lonely without my weekly dose of Stan and Marshall.
Oh boy, I just saw that this week’s episode is about Concept Art! I couldn’t be more hyped! (I’m so exciteeeed!!!)
I really enjoy these podcasts, I don't think I've missed on yet and the guest list of late has been particularly good (Gurney, Whitlatch) :)
Draftsman podcast is such a nice place to listen to them talk, its such an amazing place filled with many different insights and knowledge that would greatly help any artist. I am excited for Proko 2.0 future!!! :D
This is one of my favorite thing to watch/listen to when drawing, love the diversity and insights over the seasons
Draftsmen Podcast is great - I've learned so much from listening to these two chat and answer questions. Cheers on launching Proko 2.0! :)
