    hello everybody! I'm pretty excited and a bit nervous for this presentation! I'm looking forward to talking to everyone about this subject which I've obsessed over for a while now. For those who are attending get ready to ask questions because I'm looking forward to answering some tough ones for everyone...

    I'm also going to be showing some studies I've made over the past few years that haven't seen the light of day, and won't likely see it again soon.. so get your printscreen ready, hah take care!

    *edit* also I'm going to be going through step by step and showing some of the reference used for a few different paintings I've made in the past */edit*

    Don't be nervous, Whit. I remember I had a huge presentation to give in front of hundreds of people. Right before I went on stage, my ass-hole friend told me, "Just don't say Fuck." Of course, it was all I could think about, and I ended up dropping the F word multiple times.

    How many people sign up for these anyways? Is it dozens? Hundreds? MILLIONS?

    Will these live lectures be available to buy as a video DL at some point in the future? I would assume a recording of the live stream will be made? Times have been tough for me for quite a while, but I would really like to catch up on the regular downloads and hopefully these as well when my circumstances change. I want to support CA but I just can't at this point in time.

    How much of the presentation will involve painting demos?

    Same question here. No doubt it'll be super informative (as whit's demos are) but there's something to be said about seeing a demo for a majority of the time, instead of just hearing a "lecture". Also, will there be a recording sold later, (kind of like Siggraph or GDC)?

    There will be no live painting during saturday's presentation. In my experience it is very difficult to paint and talk about painting at the same time. I will be going through and showing the reference behind some of the paintings I've made, and explaining how it was incorporated into the whole. I will also be showing some master studies and talking about how doing them has helped me and how it might help you. I'm afraid I would be pretty useless at answering questions and presenting different ideas if I were painting at the same time. Here are some advantages and disadvantages as I see it for the streaming presentations, downloadable videos and workshop demos. I hope this will help to show what I think each medium is ideally used for:

    Streaming Presentations
    +ability to ask questions directly to the artist
    +a wide range of ideas can be covered relatively quickly
    +visual examples can help to hit points home without spending a ton of time actually painting the idea
    +anyone from across the world with a decent internet connection can join in
    +you can get more of a broad theoretical knowledge of a subject, and apply it to the way you paint instead of trying to mimic someone else's approach
    +30 days ability to re-watch the stream

    -Painting and talking at the same time is hard. showing someone an idea through painting takes a really long time, and isn't very well suited to getting the most information out there in the short amount of time available.
    -You're talking to the whole audience at once, so it's hard to give individual attention to everyone

    Downloadable Videos
    +artist has time to reflect on decisions made during the painting (the image is painted before and voiced over later)
    +You can watch the video over and over and pick up different nuances about someone's specific method
    +anyone from across the world with a decent internet connection can join in

    -no direct question and answer
    -there is a tendency to focus on surface effects and ideas used in the specific piece that was made, rather than the more important foundational stuff

    Workshop Demos
    +direct individual attention from instructors
    +meeting awesome new people and learning a shitload from attendees as well
    +going to a (likely new) city which tends to have a pretty good basis in the entertainment industry
    +watching people paint first hand and seeing their whole setup
    +portfolio review
    +hanging out with friends you don't get to see very often

    -it's hard to make it to the workshop if it's halfway across the world

    Looking at the title it seems there are gonna be more landscape streaming classes. It is something I can't miss but then again can't afford right now. Do you think you'll do this or a similar class again in the future? I'd love to join a possible class in the (near) future.

    Sounds cool, but I will have to think about it.

    I won't be able to attend live session, but I'm def getting the video afterwards. So, I would really like to know if you will discuss something that none seems to mention in any of the videos/tutorials:
    - How to change your image over and over again (clients request) and still keep all the aspects of a nice painting?
    - How do you deal with time pressure?
    - What to do when you simply don't know how to paint something?

    I am sorry if this is too much to ask for, but I am dealing with those problems at work and wonder how other folks handle it.

    Thanks Whit, looking forward to your lecture.

    Kind regards,

    Khan

    I too would like to post my questions here, since I won't be watching the live stream to ask them. Is that okay?

    - What do you do when you're off work and want to paint, but can't think of anything? Do you just put on some good music, a movie, or play games? It seems like that's how I feel all the time and I end up just doing small studies from reference, nothing creative.
    - When doing interior environments, do you start with 3D models to save time or do you just tackle the painting like any other landscape painting?

    My mind just went blank, but I'll edit it later with some other questions I guess.
