Character Ideation is a mixture of illustration of technique, artist philosophy, idea development and insightful information which will be useful to character artists of all levels. It is not a cook book. Marko simply does not work in a step by step paint by numbers way. His process is organic, flowing, and the DVD stays true to that for a reason.
Character Ideation is a very insightful production which shares information on art, about the artist, and his working methods. We believe that knowing more about who an artist is, where they come from, and how they think is very useful to understanding their decision making processes...which can be applied to ones own self as well. This first DVD is an excersize in that line of thinking.
Character Ideation is also a showcase of how far you all should be willing to go to promote your work, your art skills, and who you are in the professional world.
It is important to note that because Marko is self taught that he will do things which those of us who did learn in school were always told NOT to do. Marko does not come from the canned Art education and school system which fails 95 percent of those coming from it. We believe that you will find the "outside the box" thinking that Marko brings to his work and this dvd structure to be valuable, just as those of us who work with him have.
If you are looking for paint by numbers..this is not it. If you are looking for ideas on how to become an improved artist, inspiration to go forward with your character work, insights into a unique process, and a revealing look into the life of a professional artist then this will be a very good series for you.

IF the dvd is about Marko thinking out loud, demystifying every decision that he makes in his creation process, Im already sold.
That sounds like something very helpful. Right now I couldn't afford it but I'll definately buy this in future.
I can't wait. Its like its gunna be 2/3 training DVD, 1/3 rock music video.
We await with baited breath .
We'll ride the spiral to the end, we may just go where no one's been
Looking forward to this, seems really good value for money aswell. Any thought as to when it'll be released in november? Also thanks to the guys involved in putting this together and of course to Marko. Cheers!
What an akward thing to say, especially after Marko's last post.

I'm getting this DVD alright. Thanks Marko, I'm sure that by looking at you work it'll push my art to new heights. Ofcoarse I already taped you a bit in 2004 whilest drawing lol, but this sure looks like the real deal homes, raw education. Dope!
And to all you art money whiners out there, meaning the ones that have the dough but think it's a waste... F&*K money and start living a passion!
Take care, R.

will it be available for european´s to? what will the shiping cost?
i hope other artist from CA will contribute their own dvd to!
thanks Marko and Jason!
1. First of all: This guy is a rock'n'roll star and it's ok even if he runs around naked on the dvd. Every single member of this community is looking up to him, so no more stupid comments please.
BTW, Puddnhead had a bunny costume on his Gnomon DVD..
2. JASON: Any plans on expanding MB to Europe? There's an ocean between me and your workshops/jobs.
Thanks for feedback,
