    Jason Manley: Color and the Theory of Light - Closed

    UPDATE...TIME IS 1PM CENTRAL DAYLIGHT TIME. Replacing image. I am in Austin tx..which is central daylight. We will start the show then.

    You can cover your tuition here: http://www.conceptartstore.com/stcl.html



    Welcome. COLOR AND THE THEORY OF LIGHT is one of the most elusive courses in education. In all of my teaching, studies, or travels, I have yet to see one class anywhere that all of this information is shared, even over multiple semesters in Art School. Well this Saturday it is on ConceptArt.Org, LIVE, streaming and in your room.

    This coming Saturday, we will be delving deeply into the importance of lighting theory for illustration, concept design, Fine Art, 3d, film, games, comics, and visual media of all kinds. There will be more information announced shortly but I thought to add some info so those who are interested in their artistic growth may have something good to look forward to.

    Communicating the visual feeling of light, and depth of mood is of the utmost importance when making art, no matter the field or industry. Today's art world requires a spectrum of understandings related to both visual and cultural color theories. Accurate, abstract, and emotional qualities of color will be focused on. We will cover basic, intermediate and advanced color theory as directly related to making visual art. Students will learn how to create focal areas, pictorial space through color movements and atmospheric perspective as well as narrative color control for precise and purposeful visual storytelling. Basic lighting theory will be heavily focused on including topics of temperature, value, saturation, compliment lighting, and palette choice for mood variation.

    Date: Sunday July 26 2009
    (Sunday date added as this was originally the thread for Sat and is now Sun)
    Time: 1pm - 5pm Central DAYLIGHT Time http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/city.html?n=24 i.e. 1PM here in Austin Texas.
    Cost: 95 USD

    This course will be taught live and online. Students will be allowed to chat and ask questions of each other during the lecture and presentation in order to better understand the discussion. I will answer questions as time allows, as we have much to cover. It is a thorough course and you will want to take notes.

    This course will be in HD and requires a standard broadband connection. 56k beware! If you are located in Timbuktoo and have a very poor internet connection I will be running a test in the next day or two. Watch the forums here for times and more information, or add me on Facebook and I will update there too. www.facebook.com/creativedreams is my profile there.

    Information on how this works will be announced shortly.

    I taught a portion of this course in New Zealand at the Marama Workshop. I asked the audience, which was more than half filled with professionals from companies like Weta, Krome Studios and many more, an important question. "How many of you got this in art school?" The answer was unfortunate...none. Well we are going to do something about that here on CA. This topic is going to be shared, explored, and utilized to help artists make better work immediately. Your work will improve because your color understanding will be honed and your eyes opened to how light, mood, and color communication works. I have taught this class many times now and have expanded it to include more info on a variety of fields and how this most important foundation can be utilized every time you sit with the brush or pen.


    Hope to see you there! Watch this thread for more info over the coming days.



    Jason




    UPDATE 1:

    Those taking the course will retain access to a video copy of it for their own usage, in streaming form, here on the site. If you need to review, we are hosting it for you. It will only be available for those attending the course with me directly. We will have other services available next year perhaps...but right now the future is upon us.


    Now on to the WHY?


    If I am taking the time to do this to support the community. Aside from teaching this course based on my primary core studies in art over the past thirteen years, and sharing that knowledge with everyone, there is a goal I have for you all. The reason I am doing this right now is that we are still thousands of dollars short of completing the new blog/profile/main page/and social networking features, including a better jobs site. If I want to see that done for all of you, I have to raise the cash to make it happen. This is being done to support the growth of CA. The new main page is going to be killer. The amount of content for the new page that is stored up is really deep and it will be the primary news source for art online when I am done. Thanks to some talented folks, we have an excellent example and layout in which to work with. Gotta get going though. CA needs the funds to do it so here I am.

    What we have done so far (aside from this course and pertaining to the site upgrades):

    Final skins are in progress. Example/Prototype is done.
    Loads of podcasts are in progress and done.
    Main page admins are found and ready to rock (Dwight and Swain from SideBar Nation are helping the community)
    Tech firm is found and ready to go as soon as budget is in. Bid is complete.
    Forums and systems are all updated and bug tested. Ready to add the new tech. The latest forums features are in place. Ready to now add the new tech. The online school site is in early development. This budget is also having to be raised. Thanks to our featured artist Sammy, we have another instructor to help me get this going after this course is done.
    The blog system is designed, as is the auto-updater.



    If there is enough interest I will do another time. I don't mind staying up for you guys. I am doing that now already. Been working all night.

    Thanks for the interest everyone.

    Thumbs up

    Is this course going to have a student limit or is it going to be open to everyone (who are willing to pay of course)? Thanks

    Oh man!

    Jason, that's really like a dream come true! This is exactly what i need, and i guess many self taught artists and like you said even art school students are thinking the same way about this. There are so many little and big questions regarding this topic, and it would be great to finally have a bunch of them answered.

    I definitely want in this course !!

    Awesome, I'll be keeping an eye on this.

    But unfortunately, I live on the other side of the planet, so that could lead to some complications unless I stay up to watch it.

    Holy crap, this is something I need to see. The one color studies class my college offered was pretty unsatisfactory, so I've had to start reading books on my own. I still don't feel like I'm taking it all in though, so something like this could be great for me. The only hurdles are going to be time and to a much greater degree, cost. I'm already a full time student with a part time job, but damnit, if I have to lose a couple extra hours of sleep for this I will. Now I just need to save every penny I've got. ...Well, maybe I'll start saving after the composition download comes out.

    btw, will the students be doing voice chat or text? I don't have my own computer at school, and I always hate to be talking out loud in the computer lab (which isn't to say a bunch of other douches already do it).

    QuaTronics brings up a good idea, it would be great if these sessions were recorded. That way you could offer them as paid downloads for those who weren't able to attend, and as a reference for those who did.

    One of the problems I see occurring will be the entire channel swamped in questions. Making you lose a lot of time trying to dig through everything and not answering matters twice.
    So it might be beneficial if you would designate someone to collect all the questions and have that person filter them into the most essential.

    Like they do in developer chats on irc.

    Hyskoa brings on a good point. And I must agree with others, that a recorded version would be great too! Looking forward to more info!

    gah! That sounds great! I'm used to working in the San Francisco time zone (+7 hours here in Iceland) so time is not a problem. Gonna wait and see depending on what this is going to cost though =)

    This sounds fantastic and a very exciting direction for CA to go in but yeah, the time will probably be a problem for me. +1 for recording them and being able to access them via streaming or download the next day or something.

    recorded would be very nice, due to time differences and schedule conflicts! but I would skip a few classes to learn this information...

    This sounds awesome Jason!

    Maybe a poll could determine what time of the day works best for the majority.

    I like the idea of having the recorded version as well, however that might be partially defeating the purpose of live streaming. anti-piracy

    Thank you thank you thank you thank you--I cannot wait. Even if I gotta pull an all nighter, or whatever I need to do, I'll be there.
    My color course in college was ridiculously useless and ineffective. I look forward to this.

    These classes will be live. We are not recording them for release at this time. It is probable that I will do two times so others can find a good time to make it. If interest is high enough I will repeat the class. I am not anticipating any issues with questions not being answered. The class is very very thorough and the info is very clearly presented. By the end of it, even the beginners are going to understand what I am talking about.


    Looking forward to sharing with everyone.

    So looking forward to this... Unfortunately, I am one of those students that didn't receive a thorough course on light/color theory- everyone sign up for this!

    This sounds amazing Jason! This is something I really need at the moment, something to get me ready for school in the fall.

    I hope I can land a job before this occurs so I can pay for it as I'm sure it will be well worth it. Looking forward to seeing more information.

    If all else fails I can watch and take notes with my brother. :)

    I'm in the exact same spot. It's going to be tough to scrape up enough money for this and the upcoming downloads, but if you want something bad enough you'll find a way to get it.
