Online Digital Painting Classes on Schoolism

My online digital painting classes at Schoolism is going into it's 3rd week. The students are learning about textures this week.

For anyone interested in signing up, next class starts June 26th. It's more than half full.

Here's the assignment that the students were given to paint for the first week. This one is a muscle man I painted for the demo. I picked to paint this muscle bound guy for the first class because then we only have to deal with one basic element - flesh. No hair, clothes (except for his speedo of course), color or background. This helps the students concentrate more on the brushes and techniques for the first class and not getting overwhelmed with too many other elements.

The best way to learn is by isolating one particular way of thinking at a time so that you can put your sole attention on it.
