    Great job Jason ! thanks a lot for the initiative.
    One suggestion though: I would be really interested to know the authors (maybe also names) of the pieces you show/reference in your videos. Maybe you could just say the name at the beginning, it would be great.
    thanks !

    but there is always the chance you'll get 100 studies of the same paintings then. Half the exciting discovery comes from finding artists that inspire you! we're all different breeds.

    Never Attempt the Possible;attempt the impossible and even if you fail,you'll fall among the stars.

    If I did not mention the painter, you can always print screen and then drop the image into google image search and they will pop right up, along with a ton more of their works.

    I am going to make an art library here on the site once we get some batch upload tech in place. For now I think we will have everyone upload their masterworks to a masterwork thread. Much to do!

    Back to populating Level up with all the recordings and assignments, in prep for Monday's launch.

    My first post in a very long time.
    I have been for so many years in need of knowledge that when I find things like this it feels like I found the treasure chest filled with gold! because this is gold! Thank you very much for this initiative Jason, I'm sure a lot of people is going to be using this course and will benefit from it, just like I'm gonna do! Thank you man!
    I hope it's OK to propose another image editor, it's totally free and open source GIMP. I think it's a very good alternative if you can't or don't want to pay the current software prices. Works great but like any other new tool you have to get used to it, you have tutorials on YouTube to configure the tablet and stuff like that(which I forgot the first time).
    Thank you very much for the artist list and suggestions, I was a bit lost thinking where to start.
    I wanted to say something else but I forgot and I know you're a busy man so I'll shut up and just go study.
    Thank you

    I don't know what you mean. You should have access to the videos in the start forum. Have you tried both browsers? I have seen no reported issues...please print screen what is happening so we can take a look and email it to me at artdesignandcreativityATgmail.com

    I had to reboot my internet access, my computer too and now it's okay I can watch it.
    I already watched it and it opened my eyes and changed my vision of the world. Now I'm checking all those principles in real life.
    thank you for the hard work !!!

    i always had a hard time to decide where to put my details. made a lot of notes during the video, some on details, hope they are helping me to make good decisions in the future:

    - details follow a structure
    - lead the eye to the focal point
    - helps to get sure the viewer sees the hole image
    - have got a falloff off the primary point of interests
    - should be balanced over the picture

    maybe this seems obvious, but not for me on first sight and its still not easy, but it helps to find a nice structure first, its like a guideline for details


    2nd Question:

    after choosing and placing my points of interest around the picture, and i've got a very calm space, do i still should put something interesting in? is it desirable to discover every corner of an image, or is it a more powerfull choice to let "blanks" in? i know that its all about my main points of interests, but its interesting to what degree i mute the rest, i painted a little thumbnail example:

    Name:  look here.jpg
Views: 524
Size:  486.0 KB

    i painted a red mark in, imagine ive got 2 points of interest, right corner below and upper left...the upper right could be very calm clouds...or i can emphasize some shapes of the clouds to make em popout a little bit more or i could paint some birds in, u know?

    probably very subtle stuff is better than NOTHING interesting

    I do not believe it is necessary...at a certain point you have to simply try things and trust your guts. I think it's a more interesting piece without it with that in mind...but other pieces you may want to break up the large simple areas...it depends what you are trying to do.

    That's a good thing then. I tend to focus better with an actual pencil in my hand. My work has gotten really good as a result.

    Is there a deadline to any of this? I'm in the middle of midterms presently and haven't had as much free-time as I'd like to put towards this project. x]

    Hi, just finished viewing the video for this and I gotta say there was a lot of helpful information in it. Really looking forward to seeing more of level-up and working on the assignment.

    I'm literally on the very edge purchasing the levelup workshop membership in the next day or two.

    (based off of seeing multiple users posting their work for the first and only viewable assignment, as digital work) I originally presumed i was going to be able to do the first assignments in traditional media while familiarizing myself with digital media/using a tablet before the lessons became largely reliant on digital media.

    i have never used a digital tablet/or drawing program before, and that seems to be what alot of the assignments are geared towards in terms of uploading for instructor viewing/response. So i presume that factor would likely largely impact the quality of the "studies" which would come out largely mopish and what i assume will be near unrecognizable from someone that would be using a tablet pen for the first time.
    So that sort of leaves me in the dilemma of whether i should wait until i've get used to using my tablet or just make a leap of faith anyway.

    Because if i wait until i've become used to handling the tablet pen (not to mention finding out how to use a drawing software for the first time, photoshop elements) then i may miss the 50% deal and not be able to afford the workshop anymore,
    But then if i buy as someone with no experience with handling digital media drawing and do the assignments in traditional media for awhile, i'd have to take pictures of traditional media work for upload, and we all know how terrible quality cheap cellphone picture uploads are, and i unfortunately do not have a scanner.

    Also, my other concern is, in terms of "picking your favorite paintings from art history", does that mean strictly only from past centuries? or are depictions of modern/2000's concept artworks/artists acceptable for studies as well?

    Try reading the first page of the thread, the answer is there. I was wondering the same myself.

    @Subhumanfailure - do it. Sign up. Draw, study and improve! You'll regretting not doing it much more With the offer it's $10 a month if you do a full year. I'm pretty sure you can do this with traditional media if you so desire, but James can surely guide you much better.

    traditional media is just fine. love that stuff.

    I suggest using images that are older than 76 years old as they are in public domain and you can literally do anything you want with them without consequence. However, you can study newer art, just be sure you credit the artist when you share the pieces online. There is nothing wrong with fan art that way...just cant be selling it.
