Reviews from Artists taking the Workshop

“Level up was just what I had been looking for. Real understanding of how everything works, assignments with clear objectives and feedback all without breaking the bank. You also get to work at your own pace, which is cool and leaves out the pressure aspect, but I’ve found it has given me extra motivation since starting. Now I have clear instructions set out in front of me, and some guidance, there are no more excuses. It’s down to me now to practice, learn and improve.”

“So far the course teaches the essentials of an art education worth tens of thousands of dollars. The assignments are creative and fun. I know in the past couple weeks I’ve improved my art skill drastically in both technical ability and art theory.

“This January I saw the Level up! announcement on a Friday and on Monday I signed up.
Level up! is giving me the opportunity of having the mentoring I have been
looking for years and the fighting chance to pursue my dream of being a good Concept Artist.

Jason does an excellent job commenting, correcting and cheering up people
to be self-demanding and get the best they can of their own work to improve
their abilities. Also I believe he is very conscious of his responsibility
and he really enjoys watching his students progress and helping them out.
As long as I can afford it and my right hand keeps working properly,
I’m not going anywhere, I’m staying here to learn from Jason Manley…”

Level Up is by far one of the best learning experiences i’ve come across, Jason is an amazing mentor, in only a couple of weeks work i’ve learned so much and improved my art beyond my expectations, I’ve still got a VERY long way to go, but now I know i’m on the right track.

“…the free assignments in Start have been extremely helpful, and Level Up looks like an excellent extension of those workshops, and very well structured – which is exactly what I need!”

“I’m gonna go ahead and say it; this program has been a big help to me already. I’m still forgetting to ‘think’ when I draw, but I see my faults sooner ( usually about 5 minutes after I posted now…), and its become easier to identify the main issues.  A lot of the first level stuff isnt even new to me; I’ve had a fair share of art-history in art school, it’s just somehow easier to apply this time around. maybe its the program, maybe I’m just older now.

“OMG this is just what I need. Thank you so much for doing this!  Just signed up for 12 months. I’m looking forward to the courses.”

“I can’t believe how much this is sharpening my analytical ability when I now view my own works, and others (non-studies). I am excited about these studies, and am finding my ability to keep working a painting (I used to quit way to early) is increasing significantly. cheers!”

“If you’re doubting to sign up; It’s pretty damn great, and you should sign up right now. No Youtube tutorial or googled instruction book on ‘how to draw’ comes close to getting some specific feedback from a professional, who also took the time to lay out a course for you with clear goals to aim for. I can’t tell you how much it helps to no longer wonder if you’re on the right track, because this way you know you are. 

You get pushed to get the maximum out of your work with the right feedback on how to achieve it, supported by the underlying theories on why, which are also fully explained in easy-to-understand videos. So you’re not only getting better, you also learn why the stuff you make is getting better. 

And the cherry on top? It’s really affordable compared to other art courses.  So if you’ve got the drive and are committed to becoming great, it’s worth saving up for and laying down some money.”
