I signed up for a 6 month subscription to Schoolism, and the first class I signed up for was Painting with Light and Color with Dice Tsutsumi and Robert Kondo.
You might recognize those names. They are the creators of the Oscar Nominated Short Animated Film: The Dam Keeper. I don’t think I need to tell you how awesome it is that they put together an online class for folks like me to learn loads from.
I’m on lesson 2 and already I feel like I’ve learned so much. I’ve struggled a lot with value and they have some great advice on improving that I can’t wait to try! Also each week includes a Photoshop tip, and it’s really great. They do a great job with the class.
With a Schoolism subscription, you can take one class at your own pace, and then switch to another class for a dollar. I have no intention of rushing through any of the lessons but I’m very excited to learn as much as I can in that time. Maybe I will have to renew my subscription and learn more! One 6 month period at a time.
What else is new? In addition to learning new things, I’m also sending out my first batch of promotional postcards and have started to work on my first picture book dummy. I have also decided to share a new post on this blog each Friday. Every Friday you can expect to see an update of what I’m working on, learning about, and just news in general with pictures. And if I don’t have news, I’ll make something up for you 🙂
