    Video tutorial explaining the practical implements of what he is doing.
    Check out Feng Zhu's sketch painting tutorial to see what I mean.

    Also, Gnomon Practical use of color and light was brilliant. (Less theory, more practical application)

    Way better than "...adding some light here... stroke there... white stuff comes out here..." You get the point

    Video tutorial where you talk about what you're doing.

    My question is about your art background & schools. Cuz right now I'm studying at this pre-college art school (i guess it would be called pre-college in the US) with the program Painting. But we have drawing once a week and the rest of the time we spend at school painting and doing weird art things, which kind off made me hate modern art. So there's not alot of technical knowledge passed down if you don't sit down and start doing things by yourself. Ofc the teachers walk around the class some days and tell us what can be improved but it's not in that technical way where you feel like you're gaining knowledge every day.

    Is this how most art schools look like. How did yours look like? And what did you study, Illustration, entertainment art? normal art college? Did you use digital there too? How did your curriculum look like?

    Simply, if you have the energy. Write about your art background and any tips you would have on schools.

    Huge thank you for doing this.

    Cheers!

    Some thoughts ... firstly your current vimeo vids are great. Short, clear and concise.

    The problem with full demonstration videos where someone would do an illustration on cam and talk about their process is that if you are an experienced artist you will pick up bits of info but if you are not they mostly useless although fun to watch. So what should those artists do? .. just loads of practice!

    So my theory here in how to help a beginner practice I would say is showing all the focused exercises you have come up with or can come up with in which the beginner can spend a lot of time going over. Might not be as much fun to watch but probably far more useful.

    That's my inexperienced opinion anyway. Good luck with it all Matt!

    A video tutorial would be awesome. I learn the most from them. Your rendering skills are really strong. It makes me want to work harder just looking at your work.

    I like illustrated and video tutorials. They provide that visual component that's needed to understand the abstract aspects of what you're talking about.

    written stuff is good to explain theories, and is always better accompanied by good diagram exemples. Videos are great to show technique, and 10 times better when they are accompanied by voice explaining the stuff as we see it progressing in front of our eyes. To me the most important thing always been to understand the '' Why we do what we do '' , and no just the ''How to do it '' . If you explain the logic behind something, the viewer can always after that reconsider thing in his own mind and go thru the path that led to realising why a particular approach is good and how it solve a particular problem.
    This is probably full of english mistakes, sorry about that Your art is great

    Wr00m: I went to school at a large, traditional, art college called Savannah College of Art and Design (USA). It has ~two years of focus on foundational subjects such as drawing and 2D design, followed by two years of concentration material. I chose the comic book program because it would allow me the most time drawing from my imagination. Some of the other programs were fantastic, but involved more observational drawing and more computer time. don't mistake my meaning: observational drawing is very, very important. However, in order to get a job as a concept artist, i needed to focus on drawing from my imagination. The comic program was very good for this. I would recommend it highly to anyone that is interested in going into the illustration / concept art business. There is a big catch, however: photoshop. It was essentially ignored in my program. This is good, because drawing is more important than photoshop -- but if you want to digital paint it must be self-directed. I was able to teach myself and submit many of my homework assignments as digital paintings, while other students were using markers or pencil. I feel that the program is very successful if you are willing to put in a little extra to fill in the technology gap.

    So there it is: went to art school, drew a lot from imagination (and a fair amount from observation), but needed to teach myself photoshop.

    everyone that asked digital painting questions: you rock!!! thanks so much for that, and keep them coming.

    Thank you sooo much! It was good to hear about your background/education. Are there any schools that you would highly recommend (or highly discourage) to someone who wants to go into the concept art business? Thanks Matt, love your work!
