Back From Italy...

Hey guys, I just got back from a 12 day trip to Italy... My head's stuffed full of ideas regarding structure and composition, and how to draw landscapes and scenery from the imagination.

In other news, I had a rather successful interview at the International Academy of Design and Technology and will start teaching concept art and programming (and other various subjects) for their video game course in Mid-July. The job itself is a part-time engagement, so I feel that Ten-Minute-Drawing Techniques will not suffer in any way. Rather, it'll help me to hone the lessons a little better.

Congradulations on the job! That must be exciting. Italy must be exciting as well! Thank you so much for these lessons. They are truly helpful especially for people like me who can't afford art classes and books right now. :) I REALLY appreciate what you are doing. Thank you.

I have a question that might seem wierd... It's about drawing in general. When you sit down to draw something, do you have a clear picture in your head of what you want to draw? Like the pose for a figure and all the anatomy.

I seem to struggle with drawing because I can't see it clearly before I draw it. I can't visualize what I want to draw I guess. Especially when I'm trying to pick a pose for a figure. Sorry for the long post, it's been on my mind for a long time. Thank you and I look forward to more videos. :) -Josh

Congratulations! It's great to have you back. ;D

I still can't wait to see what you've got coming in the next videos! From what you've said...they sound quite interesting (and informative, of course).

I hope your teaching will carry with it the same level of instruction found in these videos! LOL
