In this 2 part ebook collection, you will learn an approachable introduction to the fundamentals of art and how to apply that knowledge to help you start your career in the arts.

VOL. 1

This is the culmination of years of collected knowledge, simplified into a really approachable introduction to the fundamentals of art. It’s useful for not only fine art but concept art and illustration as well. This is the very basics, so the tools are useful for all creative work, not a formula that only leads to one style. If you’ve been feeling like there are some basics about art that you don’t understand but don’t know how to address it, this is for you!

VOL. 2

Do you wish you could see beyond the style of a great painting and incorporate the underlying knowledge into your own work? To confidently use color and value, from life and from imagination? Most importantly, do you wish you could have fun with painting, without the frustration of feeling like you are missing something? If so, then this is for you.

This is the book I wish I had when I started out. It took years to find the answers I was looking for, but it doesn’t have to be that way. I believe this knowledge shouldn’t be expensive or take years to find, so I put it together all in one place: the basics that everyone needs to start a career in the arts.
