    Stragan, I don't think SVA offers any financial aid for continuing ed classes. Just worry about getting things set up for the day school, and hopefully I'll see you your sophomore year.
    Kristen, it looks like this class will be offered again in the fall, after that we'll see, but I'm definitely going to be doing more continuing ed classes. That's good news from the publisher, as long as they're still interested, they're still interested.

    To heck with hinting, I'll come right out and ask. Is there any way we can get our hands on some of the materials you'll be using to teach this class?

    I'd be more than happy to invest in something of that nature...

    Hey Guys,

    I just took this class in the fall so I thought I'd chime in.

    If you're on the fence for whatever reason, just go ahead and sign up already. The price really is quite low and you’ll get loads of valuable information in return. Elwell is extremely knowledgeable, amazingly so, and he will instantly have the answer to any art-related question you might have. The course itself is designed as a very sensible progression through the fundamentals, starting with perspective (how to build a space), then anatomy (build figures to put in the space), and even things like drapery (how to dress the figures), with the all important subjects of color and composition tying it all together at the end.

    Needless to say, no one is able to magically master all the fundamentals in 8 weeks. The wiser way to look at Crash Course is that it's a guided tour through each successive area you'll need to master in order to work as a professional illustrator, including where to find the best info to follow up on each topic. In other words, Crash Course is a blueprint of what you'll need to study and how to go about studying it. Each week you get a taste of what it means to train in a particular area, along with Elwell’s experience and insight to guide you. And if you’re already familiar with the material, it will help you plug in any gaps in your knowledge.


    On the last day of class, I was lucky enough to have all of his attention and we sat together and reviewed my work. I am eternally grateful for this and learned a lot. He’s really very sharp when it comes to analyzing exactly what is working and what is not working in one of your images. You will learn much just from being around him, listening, and understanding how he thinks about things. Personally, what I really took away from the course overall is how much harder I need to push myself and how totally bulletproof my skills and portfolio need to become. This was a much needed kick in the ass to get my act together and just put in the hard work. Thanks for everything Elwell!

    -Greg

    Hi Tristan. Any chance all or part of your lecture is available online or as a download? I didnt see this mentioned in the links you posted, so I'm fairly sure it's not an option, but hey, it doesnt hurt to ask.

    For the record, if you had an instructional dvd available, I'd buy it
