Schoolism Class: Advanced Lighting

There are already a lot of other online tutorials on lighting and surface.  Not only that, but Schoolism has some amazing artists and instructors.  Because of this, I felt pretty intimidated when I was asked to teach a class for Schoolism.  I wasn't sure what I could bring to the table that would be on par with their other classes and worth the investment compared to similar offerings elsewhere.

However, after doing some work on the course I can say with confidence that this class is going to be awesome (if you don't mind my awkward way with words in the lectures).  I've done enormous amounts of research and boiled it all down in a way that anyone should be able to understand.  I'm excited to teach when the class starts up next month.  The part I'm looking forward to most is the interaction with students on the assignments, because that's where most of the learning is going to happen.

I did this as a demo from the lecture on "fleshy" materials.

Something from Friday's drawing session

For some reason I liked this painting a lot better on Friday.  Now something seems off about it.  Maybe I didn't push the exaggeration enough.  Hmmm.
