Custom Illustration/ Comic Book / Fantasy Art Course

A Revolutionary Way to Learn to Draw & Paint

Student uses a Digital Camera (supplied in your Student Sign Up Kit along with Textbooks & Supplies) to take digital photos of  their completed assigned Lesson Artwork for each lesson. The student sends those photos as email attachments to the teacher who draws, paints & comments on the work & posts a critique of each lesson on our WEB site, a personalized
How-To-Do-It-Better Critique for the student to view 24/7/365

Here is my proposal for a customized Interactive Art School Illustration / Comic / Fantasy art course.

SUBSTITUTE books are in red and italicized – I have focused on the subjects Illustration / Comic / Fantasy Art. The course I propose is in pencil and oils. Comics are now done in line drawings which are scanned into computers and then color filled by specialists, but I think a student should be exposed to traditional techniques. There are also sci-fi and adventure artists who have gone on to painting and selling oil paintings of their fantasy figures.

For examples of Fine Art Paintings in the Sci-Fi/Fantasy Art tradition that are sold as art in art galleries and as posters look at:

A key and unique component of Interactive Art Schools teaching method is that the student photographs their assignment artwork and attach the image(s) to an email to the school. Your teacher draws/paints critiques along with written comments of how you could improve your work and posts those images/comments to the student's folder on the school's Web site. You must therefore have a digital camera of at least 1 mega pixel resolution with which to photograph your work. We can supply such a camera in your student kit or if you have camera that can save pictures on your computer, we reduce the price of the course by $100 as shown below.
