The Art of Composition by El Coro and Jason Manley Closed
Coro and I are going to do something special for you all this coming Sunday as he and I join up to cover the single most important aspect of image creation. We will be covering composition for Illustration, Narrative, Fine Art, Storyboarding, Marketing Art and more...
Topics to be covered:
The Principles of Design.
The Illusion of Space and Improved Image Depth.
Composition for Visual Storytelling
Linear Design and Visual Flow
Tonal Pattern and
Mood and Feeling
A Crash Course in Composition History
We will be covering many aspects of improved image creation which can be utilized regardless of style or industry to better your skills. This is very very practical stuff and you will leave the class with theories and ideas which will immediately improve your work and your awareness of how you create pictures with purpose.
When: This Sunday! 1-5pm CDT
Where: Right here on ConceptArt.Org (forum coming!)
Why: Because you want to improve your ability to create believable and deep images containing emotional depth, mood, and content. And because we want to help support CA and it's new technology goals (in progress!!)
How much? 95 USD. http://www.conceptartstore.com/artofco.html
More info to come!!! I gave a teaser when we did the color theory class and it covered only the most basic part...we are going to cover the entire spectrum of composition, value storytelling, and share ideas which help you have greater emotional impact in your works.
Join us for art, and in depth conversation on Composition. I consider this to be my best class and having Coro there with me, will make it an experience worth hearing and seeing. I have four hours of material prepared and we will be answering all your questions...at least as many as we possibly can!!
Hope you all will enjoy the class. I had planned on running it as a download but it is a topic that I have realized is much better served when I can answer technical questions and share the info with you all. Coro and I have been studying composition since the mid 90's and there is a TON of info which will be given to you.
Can't wait to see you all. Really. The questions so far have really pushed me to better communicate these ideas which have been refined down to the very core of what it takes to be successful in image making. Coro's knowledge of image creation and process is top notch.
As usual, with these courses, CA's proceeds are going to the suport the continued building of all the new technology for you all to enjoy. Thank you so much for the support...We will do all we can to help around
Really. thank you. Just got working with Jackie Oh and Randis on some new layouts for the site and the features list is thick and really the whole thing is beginning to lo looking thick. Going to keep at it til it is all done!!

Does this mean there isn't gonna be the downloadable content on composition?
I can't seem to find that thread anymore either.
This sounds pretty interesting though.

Pitty im gone for the weekend. But I might just pay for the on demand, but will it have the entire class? Or will the beginning be missing like on the colourclass? (btw, that wasn't in a negative tone. Just wondering)
Btw, what is this 30days I'm hearing about. Does the on demand only last 30 days? SNAPP I better watch both the last classes once more to get it in reaaaaal good

I actually prefer this to a download (Not to say a download would be sweet), having the chance to interact with Jason and ask questions as well as clarifications is immensively valuable-
I will definately be there on sunday.

If we need to, we will run it twice...will see how the interest is.
Thanks for the comments. The colour theory should not have a missing part. I will discuss with Davi and get that resolved. Since there are some issues with the first two classes due to the switch over to the new ten channel plan, we will keep the course up another few days. Thanks for letting me know. If anyone has further issues please reach me directly via PM.

I am going to be taking questions from those who cannot make the class until it hits on demand. I will make a thread for those folks so they can get all their questions answered. cool?
I am going to make an additional recording of those questions to add to the on demand library. I think that should help too.
Doing all I can. Trying my best...still working out the kinks but it is all coming together.

Sucks that the download won't be happening... I would have saved my money from the last class for this if I'd known about it. Is there any chance of getting notice of topics a few classes in advance so we can budget for the ones we really want?

I am probably gonna start eating air and looking like a panda very soon *LOL* but well worth it!

Hey Jason... would it be possible to offer these at lower prices with a one-time-only viewing option?
I understand you've got costs to cover, but purely from my perspective I'll be going bankrupt!

Although I would've loved a cheaper option I'll say I'm still super excited about this, I've been looking forward to it. I definitely thought that the color class was well worth the money despite some hiccups with the technology.
I'm in agreement with the thought that eventually it'd be nice if there was a schedule of upcoming classes so people could save up and prioritize. I know you guys are getting things worked out, so I'm not complaining, just thought I'd raise my virtual hand in agreement with that sentiment.
Anyway, thanks again for all the work you do, it's much appreciated. : D

Queue lazy writing skills,
Guys i've spent $200 on downloads and now $200 on classes. a few downloads i would get my money back on if i could and needed the money enough, but these lessons are worth everything and more.
in fact i feel asif im betraying myself writing this, the less people who know this info the better, because really, no one knows it like jason
