So you see all of these
art lessons below, and are probably asking yourself where to start?
Well the first section, "Life As An Artist", contains some articles on
"big picture" art issues that you may find interesting. Then the second
section, "The Art Making Process", is text and video lessons all about
personal art process, which I've broken into 22 stages. No
matter whether you're a concept artist, matte painter, modeler, shading
and texturing artist, whether you're doing vfx, animated films or
videogames, there's probably something here you'll find useful in your
own work, so feel free to explore just the stages that interest you, or

As you can probably
tell, I am
fascinated with Traditional and Digital Art and their application in
the Entertainment field. I am hoping that by providing this material,
in some small way, I am adding to the collective knowledge base of the
field, so please take these ideas and do your own exploration, and feel
free to contact me if you come across something cool, I'm always
interested in expanding and correcting the materials on this page. A
huge thanks for visiting!
