    Anyone have Vilppu's new Animal set yet?

    I got a email from Vilppu that he now has an animal set. 7 disk library edition dvds + book and a few extras for 177.95 until the 11th. I was wondering if anyone has received them yet or if hes waiting until the 11th to ship. I was also wondering if anyone knows if his animal book was the same "unfinished" animal book he offered before or if its a new one.

    I had no idea that he had this coming out. That being said I doubt many people will have it because it doesn't come out till tomorrow. Thanks for sharing that though. I will like to hear about it, so if anyone pre-ordered please let us know how it is when you start using it.

    Is it just me, or does the claim "draw any animal from any angle using just your imagination" seem a bit farfetched...? Especially since he doesn't even cover reptiles, fish, amphibians, or invertebrates...

    I mean, if someone asked me to draw a formosa grenadier, I'd first have to look up what the hell it is before I have even the slightest clue what it looks like...

    Hyperbolic advertising aside, though, it does look intriguing.

    I ordered it today and will post what i think when i get them. At the very least I will be able to say weather there is any relation between the animal drawing book he is releasing now and the one he released before.

    Queen I read that too, and decided just to pretend I didn't. He better be careful hers teetering on "buy this dvd and you will get lots of sex, loose 20 pounds, and everyone will be jealous of your awesomeness" ohhhh marketing you are a funny beast.

    Thanks Kangum

    Aha, but see? You had to look it up.

    Research, man, you can't beat it! All your advertising can't convince me it ain't necessary...

    He never said it would be an accurate depiction.

    My Sketchbook

    And then God said, "Let us make man in our likeness and our image. Let us make him ridiculously hard to draw so that poor artists everywhere will have to spend 10,000+ hours failing repeatedly before they can begin to capture the form and likeness onto a two-dimensional surface." And there was man. And it was good. And artists everywhere lost their minds.

    Thumbs up

    Urm, Vilppu isn't the one who sent the e-mail and marketing stuff. Those are all handled by his kids and I must admit it sounds a bit too "hard-sell", as in, the e-mail reads exactly like those home-based gym machine infomercials whereby you buy the machine and get an ocean of freebies etc.

    Anyway, I've just purchased the "Interview with Vilppu" DVD.
    Anyone has it already?

    Thanks!

    I couldn't even see what he was drawing in some of the previews, because the pencil was so faint. I know he is held in high regard by a lot of people, but the production on those videos seems really amateurish.
