Drawing exercises: New classes

New class is finally here! Finally. :) 

As a continuation of Drawing Exercises series I made a new class, this time focusing on drawing hands. It took me a while but I think it has enough material for you all who are at the beginning or intermediate level. I missed a previous few challenges but I made it as part of October publishing party challenge and I would like to thank all that supported me on this one. You are the greatest. :)

Here are Premium and FREE links for all of you who would like to check it out. 

Have a nice day and happy creating,

Milan

Hello Skillshare,

Here is the latest update on the channel challenge:

New class is published on March 8. 2018.

Here is the link for all you who would like to take a look and/or leave a comment. Thank you for all your support and good luck with your classes and your channels. 

Have a great day. :)

As a part of a new "Teachers to watch channel challenge" I just created an outline for a new class that I plan to publish in a month or less. Please feel free to take a look and or leave a feedback if you feel like doing so. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. :)

Here is the outline for completing the second milestone. More about the first one in the text below.

 

Joining this challenge will keep me on the track and not allow me to procrastinate. Also, with all the resources and community around the challenge I'll have a very good chance to create something good.

I've completed the first milestone for the challenge, and that is to create a personal channel vision. Here Is what I came up with:

Vision that I have for my SkillShare channel is to become a place where one can come and get the training to be better at drawing and painting, both traditional and digital. Classes will be mostly for beginner level students with a fewer number of intermediate level classes and a small number of classes for advanced students. I want to make classes focusing on skills that will engage students to take notes, make projects and come back to it whenever they need a refresher. The content of my channel should be clear in description and show that through exercising, training the skills of drawing and painting you can self improve to a level of professionals.

  • How would you describe your skill-set or approach?

For a long time my main skills were about the use of traditional mediums such as oil paints, acrylics, pastel colors and watercolors to create artworks for galleries, personal projects, exhibitions and illustration jobs. In early 2014 more of my work became digital with a use Photoshop, Illustrator, Corel Painter and other software for digital 2d art. Now I’m incorporating both traditional and modern mediums to get the best possible work both for me and my clients. That is what I’m trying to pass on to others.

  • What topic areas have worked best so far?

So far, topic that worked the best was drawing.  

  • What does your student profile look like? Who is your target student/audience?

Mostly, my target audience is at beginner or early intermediate level. Still, in almost every class I have a part for more advanced students or for everyone who wants to take that extra step and advance some more.

  • How do you want students to feel when taking your classes?

I want my students to be focused, take notes, draw along with me and try out for themselves what I’m describing them.

  • What are a few words you want your audience to associate with your content?

Words that I want my audience to associate with my content are: clarity, persistence, focus, training, professionalism, self improvement.

See you all and good luck creating your own classes.

=====================================================================================

Hello everyone, here is another drawing class in my ongoing series classes dedicated to the craft of drawing.  Hope you like it, description is below the links.

Classes in series so far -

Drawing exercises - 3 exercises to master perspective (part two)

Drawing exercises - linear perspective (part one)

Drawing exercises - figure drawing with simple shapes

Drawing exercises - shading objects and figure drawing

Drawing exercise - basics of line making

In this first linear perspective class about perspective we'll talk about the most important concepts and techniques related to. We’ll see what artists have used for centuries and make projects that will help you understand what you're seeing and transfer it on paper with greater clarity.

 Create a strong foundation for your perspective drawing process and from there make art that your friends and family would love to see on their walls.

  • Gather up materials such as pencils, erasers and rulers. Set up your workplace and start practicing.
  • Make simple exercises to warm up and start drawing.
  • Learn things about perspective and how it is helpful in order to create great drawings.
  • Experiment with one point perspective
  • See how to use construction lines to make one point perspective buildings.
  • Use erasers to further enhance the look of perspective drawing.

Start making drawings with confidence of a professional draughtsman.

Learning the basics of drawing is a great way to improve artistic toolbox. Works you crate can become a great part of your creative career or a passionate hobby. They can be sold as originals or as prints. Also, they can be excellent choice for a present or a decoration for your home. Finally, you can use them as a reference for a painting done in some other medium. The choice is up to you.

Creating something out of nothing is a very satisfying and in time you’ll achieve more and more confidence in your artistic process. In this course we’ll cover much of it and split it up to easy to follow steps that can only benefit your work, whether it's in graphic design, illustration or painting.

Thanks for all the suggestions and comment in this course, it was and still is a great learning tool for marketing on SkillShare. Thanks to this class I got over 320 students on one course and I started working on a new one - 

Watercolor Painting: painting outdoors

Here are a few things that I've done so far:

I send free enrollment links for my first course to my friends and family and then made posts on Linked In, Tumblr and Tweeter explaining what this is all about and inviting people to take a look and then decide if they want to join the course.

I added text to cover image of the course to make bigger impact on the viewers.

Also I left notes on my intro video as suggested in this marketing course. Updating this project as well as the one in June challenge is something worth while doing. Remember to regularly check up on your course and leave comments if needed. Join different social media groups relevant to your class subject and share your work there. Be positive. :) :) :)
