***UPDATED: "Google Hangouts On Air for 100pts" is now "Google Helpouts for FREE"
Yesterday I took the first step in what I've meditated on for years -- volunteering time to teach people about art, specifically digital art. I posted my first digital art tutorial on Youtube. You can watch it here:
UPDATE: Today I uploaded another video!
Moving forward, I want to gear my tutorials to the demands of you. Post a reply to this journal entry if you'd like to request a tutorial. I will do my best to record a tutorial for you. Let's keep the questions to Photoshop and Manga Studio for now. Also I know a lot of you out there have questions about drawing anatomy and things like that. That is, of course, very doable, so feel free to post those questions as well.
I will open up 1 tutorial slot for now, and open up more slots when I finish the first.
Slot 1: "coloring linework using alpha channels in Photoshop"
And in order to stay on the curve of technology, I've set up a Google Helpout. It's a Google experiment that launched late last year and it allows me to teach digital art live over the web! Imagine the video above, but you are realtime in the same call, asking questions and requesting tips. Check out my listing:
***Update 4.17.2013: I have 2 slots pending, so currently closed!
Legal stuff: If you are under 18, please get your parents' permission to join a Google Hangouts On Air with me. These videos will not be private and will go on Youtube, so you must consent to my personal & commercial usage of the video, as well as the Youtube license and Google Hangouts on Air license.
Note: The Google Hangouts On Air venture is still in its experimenting stage. Let me see how the first one goes and I will post updates from there!
Thanks for reading (especially the legal stuff, ugh...I hate writing it as much as I know you hate reading it).
