We've just uploaded a quite stunning Marko Djurdjevic workshop to ImagineFX.com. It's called No Fear to Create. Here's the intro:
"Creativity is one of the things that makes us human: it’s what separates us from monkeys. Too often we hinder ourselves in our creative process, because we’re afraid of the outcome. But who is to judge us for what we do? The paper? The art police? Confidence in every decision is what makes art become relevant. This workshop focuses around making confidence your weapon of choice when creating art.
Rules only apply if you let them dominate your work. A free mind can achieve anything, and whatever others may think of your work, it doesn’t matter as long as you enjoy what you’re doing. Don’t let questions hinder your process, make them become your process.
Every line you put down on a sheet of paper is a question – “Where am I going?” If you let the answer scare you, you’ll never find out. But if you enable yourself to become part of the journey, art becomes easy and fear can be forgotten. There’s no right or wrong in art: you either love your trade or you don’t, and denial will lead you nowhere."

And, coming in around an hour to ImagineFX.com, an interview with Marko. Click on the Interviews link at the top of the site.
thank you very much , great workshop - words from marko
Just wanted to say how awesome it is that you offer these up for free!
These are invaluable learning tools for students and professionals alike.
You could easily charge for these, and I think its admirable that you don't.

Awesome, you supply the support .PSDs too. I found that extremely helpful in following along. You guys do some great work over there, keep it up.
I see you're at Comic Con. We'll be there this year and after having a look at your portfolio/painting PDF I have a project I'd love to talk to you about.
Drop me an email on firstname.lastname@example.org and hopefully we can meet up for a coffee?
Wow, that was a great tutorial! I really like his work philosophy.
Thanks for posting this.
Thanks, thanks a lot. I like you for this information and i like Marko Djurdjevic for doing this interview. There's no possible way for me to express my feelings right now. I have very little people skills so i don't know how to thank you enough.
