Streaming personal painting, come by!

Journal Entry: Mon Sep 15, 2014, 7:29 PM

Streaming some personal stuff! Come by :)!joi…

see you there!


Official class hangout room is now available! Its a permanent link you all can use, instead of making a new one everytime. You can just use this one! Ill pop in when I can :) Start sharing your art!


As some of you know, I teach a free online art class that covers fundamentals, technique, style and many other applications of visual art. 
For the last few weeks I have received several emails and private messages from students asking if I would be willing to do private one-on-one tutoring with students.  It will very similar to what you see in the tutorials and critique classes and sessions, but it will be exclusive to you. Regardless of this, I WILL still be doing free critiques on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Just visit my website for more info on the rates and times I will be offering.  And once again thank you guys for your endless support! I am proud to see how far you all have come as artists.  =)

-->!pri…  <--


Regular Tuesday and Thursday critique hour meets will be back up again! The schedule is still the same, with the hours still at 4-6 pm Est Time. The hours may shift from earlier to later by an hour or two, and if they do I will let you guys know with an announcement. Be sure to link me, during stream or 10 minutes before hand the work you would like me to look at for critique. Lesson plan is embedded into the critique hour, and I promise each class will be a learning experience for us all! If you would like to calculate the time zone difference, have a look here:…


Location 1: New York, United States


Location 2: Your time zone/Country/Area


Its a great place to come by and chill and listen to some art info. The best way to learn in a field is to surround yourself with an active community of peers and colleagues, and this is one of those places.


Hope to see you there! Ill save you a seat!


Here are some core links from where our community is based:


Class Website:  -- you'll find links to video uploads of passed 

classes, some info about me, and books!


DeviantArt:  -- I also announce my class through the Deviant Art 

journals. If you're more active on DA, this is a good place to stay connected!


Crimson Daggers:…  --The Crimson Daggers shoutbox 

is also something I announce through, should you be active there :)


Twitter: ; --Twiitttteerr!! This one is good if you're on different 

timezones than I am, its an almost direct way to your phones :)


Facebook:…; --I also announce here!


Youtube!:…; --You need this 

one! Its where I upload all the information I talk about. Livestreams, critiques and tutorials can all 

be found here.


Thanks for all your support! Hope to see you guys around!

Iste, can you do a video on composition of drawings and dead center- that sort of thing? I feel like thats a very difficult subject for amateur artists, I know I don't understand it fully anyway.
animefreec Featured By Owner Edited Oct 1, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Where is the 14 day challenge? Is it just for portraits? I've been watching your videos a lot lately and I really want to improve. I don't think that I'll become a professional artist, but I still want to keep getting better. I've realized just how little of the fundamentals I really understand, and symmetry is not easy for me. I've slowly been trying to put the information you've made available into practice but think it would be good for me to do the 14 day challenge. Unfortunately you do the critiques on days I'm working and I can't participate as much as I'd like but I did say hi last time :p
Thank you so much, I am so very grateful for finding your videos on YT.

The 14-Day Challenge is a 14 day, focused portrait study.!the…

I used to moderate it a lot but since I have no time, I dont do that anymore. I do private lessons now and in these lessons I do offer 14-day challenge tutoring. 

As for everything you need to know about how to paint in the challenge, i have many critique videos uploaded free on youtube for you guys where I've critiqued people's challenges. 

Its really a great challenge. Thank you for all your support, I really really hope it helps you perfect ur hobby. You dont have to do it professionally to do it, haha, i started it as a hobby then it turned into a life pursuit. <3 Gl honey and keep in touch!
