The imbedded video on this site, and the download, both have serious distortions, pixilating, delays, and artifacting that's really distracting. It actively makes it difficult to follow along in the lesson because the video will stick while Jon is talking and the viewer can't see what settings or controls are used. By the end of the video it's a severely jumbled mess. I'm hoping this was an rendering issue with the output file after editing, and hopefully a new pass can provide a better file for the viewers. If someone could look into this, it would be greatly appreciated.
Hello. I mean not to be disrespectful, and I understand that people are busy and random things can happen that make it very difficult to stick to schedule. Plus, we were told that lessons would come "loosely" weekly, which doesn't imply a strict schedule anyways. But despite all of that, I am quite disappointed regarding the situation on the last two months. I couldn't find the exact dates of the lesson releases, but from what I can gather, the 4th lesson came out on 27th of march, and the next one on 16th april, and we've had no news since then. I'm writing this on 2nd of may. This is closer to a monthly release. Also, Jon mentioned he'd be critiquing the students work, but as far as I can see, the few reviews are all from other students. Perhaps what frustrates me the most in this situation is the fact that we are not even told what's going on. Everyone acts like this is normal. Could we at least have some explanation? Is it going to be like this all course long? As someone who bought this on presale last year, and was quite excited, this is very annoying. Perhaps I am in the wrong and my expectations were just too high. If that is the case, I understand that these things should be taken in consideration when purchasing yet-to-be completed courses on Proko. I hope I'm not sounding needlessly rude. Please understand that I don't mean to cause negativity, and am asking for at least clarification.
Thank you Proko.com and all involved in running this competition!! I’m flabbergasted and super happy, I really did enter to try and win a course and I’m super excited to continue learning and improving. This project ‘fought me’ every step of the way, and now I’m glad I didn’t quit. Congratulations to all who took part, let’s do it again sometime! Ps. I finished the sculpture up and made a quick vid too…(3mins ish) https://youtu.be/txltJhII_Us
Kudos to the Video Team As I was watching a previous video I suddenly noticed all the small jumps that David's pencil was making due to video cuts (watch the tape bump), and it struck me how unobtrusive the editing has been on this course. Particularly considering that there is so much of it. I can't even imagine how much work goes into that. So, thanks. You folks are doing a top notch job.
Once again, aren’t we suppose to get a new lesson a week? It’s already Friday and no new lesson has been posted. Also there are many people asking for pointers and expert advice on drawing comics, is David ever going to jump in and answer the student’s questions?
