Artists Roundtable: Point Of View
FEATURING :: El Coro, Kemp Remillard, NoxizMad, George Pratt, Sterling Hundley, and C.F. Payne
This Saturday (Dec 12 2009) we will be having a roundtable discussion with Illustration Academy's George Pratt, Sterling Hundley and C.F. Payne. From Massive Black they will be Joined by El Coro, Kemp Remilard, and NoxIzMad. They will be discussing point of view. We define point-of-view as being comprised of idea, technique, drawing, execution, composition, color, etc. It is bigger than it's disparate parts, and greater. The discussion will cover what a point-of-view is, how each of these artists developed theirs and how it has effected their careers. Each artist will show and discuss examples of their work. They will also explain where and how they fit into the industry.
SATURDAY, DECEMBER 12th :: Starting at 11:00 AM PST

Funky. Very funky.
I hate bieng broke. I think I'm going to plunder my savings for this one tough.
Technique + composition + color+ ideas + problem solving + style + the artist= POINT OF VIEW
At least, the way we teach it. I hope to see a ton of members there on Saturday. If you haven't been through an artist round table, it's a great way to see how different artists go about solving similar problems. Point of View lives somewhere in those differences.
hi thank u
I am posting a couple of C.F. Payne's images to give an example of a his very unique Point Of View.
The first is a portrait of Andrew Wyeth commissioned by the Wyeth family as a gift to Andrew. What an honor!
Second is a portrait of George Lucas and the third Bush and company.
In Saturdays class Chris will show examples of his work, give a brief explanation of his process, explain how he developed his Point Of View and what it has done for his career.

Ok this time i DID read the thread (hopefully, properly) and there is no countdown clock time thingy, and no way to judge what time i would have to be awake at in order to attend in person. GIMME GIMME GIMME (please, humble please, don't hit me).
Damn it all to hell, i won't be home for this :c
Suppose i'll have to get it on demand.
HTML Clocks are on the fritz.
Sorry about that. refer to the world clock to find out what time the class is in your part of the world.
I really hope that in about 2 years when I'm a certified teacher, CA.Org has many more of these events, workshops, etc. When I have a GOOD, Full Time job, as opposed to my decent part time job, I'll be able to afford some of this stuff.
Doctors heal you, Artists immortalize you.
"Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach" - bullshit.
The usual staples for anatomy:
Just to get in the spirit, I wanted to show you a bit more work from the boys representing Massive Black at the roundtable.
First off, Nox! Feel free to share more of his work if you have it, this is just a sampling. :]
DAM IT!!! just spent the last of my money on christmas presents!!!
I think I know what I want as an early Christmas present
The work is beautiful and I thank you for posting!
I think I need to return the favor and post a few more from the Academy side.
First a few from George Pratt!
More to come,
Here are a few from Sterling Hundley!
They are! I meant the ones I use on the CA forums.. working on a solution..
1 hour to go for those who still need to sign up!
I'm brand spanking new to CA and found this roundtable very interesting... but couldn't figure out how to sign-up. There were no instructions or links I could find to actually sign-up??
This was a great class, and different from the previous ones in many ways.
Each of the artists went trough their own work, explaining the content, thought process, view on the subject, as well as technical things. They would also explain their process, both the methods and thought process.
Because of the teachers' varied backgrounds, a LOT of different fields were covered. Ranging all the way from use of media and composition to developing an artistic view and common mistakes for students. "Point of view" sounds cryptic at first, don't let this fool you The introductionary text actually sums it up. This is actually an important course, crammed with a diversity of knowledge, and really exciting. I'd have to watch it again to capture everything.
- They recently added a download link. Alternatively, you can go to 'shop' at the top of the page and then go to 'streaming classes'.
This class was easily the most inspirational one. Seeing those inherently different artists together sharing their own perspective and outlook of things has given me a lot to think about for myself and gave me a LOT of respect for those illustrators and concept artists in general.
I attend an environment were it is mandatory to force your point of view upon others and diss other endeavours of creativity. Fine-artists bashing illustrators bashing conceptual artists (Those with the installations y'know) bashing contemporary realistic painters bashing conceptartists bashing graphic artists/designers and the list goees on and on. People tell me what to do and it rubbed on me in the way that I began to question and criticize the creative endeavours of my classmates, of working artists, and ultimately, myself.
In this class, I saw Kemp Remillard talking about designing tanks and airplanes, I saw and heard the passion he has for his subject matter and what he thinks about funktionality. About how he loves what he does. And at the same time, I hear George Pratt complementing not only his technical proficiency but also his vision. Two image-makers who are so different in their approach and subject matter that one might think that they are exclusive in their point of view. The love for mechanical ingenuity and functionality did not stand opposite for the compassion with the struggle of fellow humans and their emotions.
Also I saw Nox talk about how he is obsessing about creating convincing and striking narrative and how he learned through his practice and work, gradually building up a process which is funded on a rock-solid instinct and passion for making the best out of a picture, in every picture. At the same time, Sterling Hudley tells us how his endeavours for solving big problems in his work, his analysis and introspection of his own work made him do the neccessary leaps to make his art special. And they seem to understand and sympathise with each other.
And so on, each and every artist in the class showed with their presentations how you can be unique, have your own point of view and still share the same primordial passion with your fellow artists.
I think this has been the most important streaming class I attended so far, and I do not regret having taken it.
EDIT_: And even though he wasnt in the line-up, Jon Foster took part in the discussion through the chat and made entertaining and interesting remarks. Truly an awesome bonus

Faust and Anthis,
Glad you guys could make the class and, more importantly, that you felt the information was solid and helpful! These things are great for us as teachers, too. To have to put into words what one does sort of naturally, can be difficult at times. But having done so helps to strengthen one's belief in their working methods and thought processes.
On top of that, it's just great to see so many seemingly different and points of view and working methodologies, and to realize that we're all thinking intellectually along the same lines. We're all making different pictures, but we share common aspirations. Very cool!
I know if Jon Foster's class, was that a week ago?, we were talking about various things and to someone on the outside it must look like we rehearsed our lines, the information we were going to deliver. You see the same thing at the Academy throughout the various teachers coming and going. But the fact is the base knowledge that is imparted is pretty similar. We all have different ways of getting there, but we're all talking the same language, ultimately. Good picture making is good picture making and the same rules apply across diverse spectrums.
Anyway, great class and lots of fun, as usual. Thanks so much for attending!
