    Gnomon's DVDs

    Hi, just watched 5 dvds from Gnomon and i love them, i saw 3 from Scott Robertson, 1 from Carlos Huante and 1 from Yannick Dusseault.
    Actually I think in some part of the lecture they forget totally about you and that you are watchin'/lernin' from them and you're like what happened ?
    I got nothin' from Dusso's lecture, just the joy of see him work, he's ultra fast doing his work but i didn't get a bit of the process, just his thoughts about what he's doing.
    Anyways, in any form i'm saying that the quality of the product is bad or something, I love them, just grabbing them in my hands make me smile, maybe they don't suit with me and my level as an artist...
    Just wanted to share my thoughts with you and read some of yours.

    -Diego

    Wow I got kind of confused by your post. You went from loving them to death to harshly critiqueing them to loving it again. But ya I've been wondering how those dvds are. From what I hear it's really good, but of course they can't teach ya everything, just like any book or dvd but I always hear good things from them. When I start working I'm a start buyin them.

    Yeah, bit messed up...
    Don't get me wrong, just saw them and just the fact that i didn't learn pretty much from dusso doesn't mean that i love what he's doing on the screen.
    You should get one when you can. Check the contents and buy some.

    Good luck

    I have no doubt that these dvd's have amazing art being produced right infront of your face... But I'm wondering if they are really good for educational purposes. I mean I can look at a sketchbook and learna whole bunch from it but do they really try to tell you techniques that they do and different ways that they go about doing things? I know it's not geared to the ABSOLUTE beginner that can't draw at all but I'm wondering if it's good for people trying to brush up on a few things or just learn a few new things.

    They are awesome...

    Watching someone work is inspirational and educational...
    If i had the money all the analogs would be in my possession...

    Hi Daunting,
    From my experience with Scott Robertson's lectures i can tell you that i learned a lot about perspective, differents ways of approch a grid in perspective, measuring in perspective....Build basic and complex forms in perspective, starting just with a plane.
    They were pretty educational for me in the ID aspect.
    So being an amateur in that matter i could follow him perfectly tru his lecture...
    Then you can get his advanced lectures about cars, ships.....with being lost at all.

    -D

    im going to art school so most of his (scott robinson) was review.. but hey it nice to go abck and refer to it. i think ryan church's are the best.. he uses painter.. and he shows some great methods of working in painter for quick compositions.
    then watching carlos huentes.. ahha it makes me sick how good that guy is! "i have no idea what im going to draw,.... im just lightly hitting the paper with my pencil until something comes."
    2 hours later....
    a masterpiece..

    i love all the dvds it's great to just watch how other people work.. especially these guys.

    They're at least educational in the sense that you can see technique. You might love a blend they do in a drawing or some other nuance they put in but now you know how they actually did it.

    People sometimes bitch & moan about why art schools should/ shouldn't have attendance policies. THIS is prime example of why I think they should- just so you can see the person next to you utilizing their techniques. I'm a firm believer of learning from observation as well as from practice.

    I'm a big fan of the Gnomon DVDs, especially since I can't really afford to go to a good school. I have a bunch of them, mostly digital, and some analogs. That's pretty much how I learned Maya, and, although maybe some of the analog DVDs aren't for absolute beginners exactly, they're still worth watching. And every few months I watch a DVD over, and learn something new that I didn't see or understand before. They're a good and relatively cheap (compared to tuition costs) way to learn some valuable skills.
