Learn a natural way to pull your drawings together in the first 20 seconds of your sketch — with a special kind of gestural drawing! You’ll find the secret spelled out in this fun preview video from Mark’s online course, Make Your Splashes –Make Your Marks!
Hi 🙂 I just love blogs and especially meeting blog writers ! This looks like a fun trick…I am going to look into gesture drawing! Thank you for the tip!
Thanks! 🙂 And your site is full of fun, creative ideas!
I just went through your website, blog material and course description letter (yes, it was long, but worth it) and I have two words: Thank You. I’ve been out of the loop for a while, and revisited your site to get caught up. You presented (freely and honestly) every question I have ever thought of re: getting started and/or surviving in this business. I sincerely appreciate your willingness to share your experience with others — know that you’ve inspired me to stick with it. Thanks again for sharing your story, your process and your inspiration!! I look forward to getting back to SCBWI meetings and conferences this year! See you soon.
Thank you so much, Midge! Look forward to seeing you at SCBWI and some of our Inklings meetings. Your website’s looking great, by the way!
I am an Illustrator, and will like more info on how one can become a publish Illustrator.
I am still working on my website. (Still posting images..etc.) On the other note, could you please tell me how much your video series course costs?
i’m learning illustration too, but still newbie in illustration, i love kids, and also love your post 😀
I’ve tried your gestural drawing … it really helps a lot! Thanks a bunch!
I’m glad to hear the gesture drawing tutorials helped, Karen!
Thanks God, I find a nice website for book illustration.
Great site, I’ll be back when nano month is over.
Hi there…this is probably a longshot….but I’m wondering how I could help my daughter get a high school co-op credit, illustrating someone else’s children’s book. We live near Toronto, Canada. She has actually helped me illustrate a few products for me in our little Catholic publishing company. (We just released our latest product….she sketched the 42 saints in the craft kit here: http://www.equippingcatholicfamilies.com )
are there any illustrator/author associations we could tap into?
thanks for any help you can give me! Monica mmcconkey a t rogers d o t com
How are you? I am gettin´some problems to watch the online webinar Intro to Photoshop Art-Making: Vector and Paint because Steve is explaining the techniques, but the action at the PS screen has a
delay. What can I do?. I believe is because here, in Venezuela, the internet connection is pretty poor. So, I wish to know if this webinar is able to be downloaded by a direct download, or at Dropbox. I really would like to watch this webinar because is pretty interesting. I´m a graphic designer, but I am trying to learn more about digital illustration. Your website is awesome, and it is a great source of inspiration. So please, I beg your help, and try to help me from there.
Thanks a lot!
God bless you.
PS: If I can´t download the webinar, exist in PDF format file?
What happens when you try to watch and listen to it here?
Please let me know and if you’re still having trouble, let me know and we’ll work towards a solution. ThANKS,
Hello this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually
code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to
get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
I suggest starting with a WordPress.com — like this one is. It’s not WYSIWYG exactly but it’s an easy content management system and free. Later after you’ve got the hang of it you can move to a WordPress.org blog if you like.
