Jeremy Vasquez - First Commission

It's always great when our students start prospering with their art. Recently we experimented with our minimum age requirements by accepting students in middle school. 

Jeremy Vasquez is among the group and I'm happy to report he's completed his first professional commission. He created a family caricature with 13 individuals. Jeremy was paid $13 per character for a total of $130. And he's only 12 years old!

Congrats to Jeremy! He's on his way.

Share the Lesson 10 - Head and Shoulders

There's a YouTube based video series I've been developing entitled "Share the Lesson". In it I highlight some pointers that help artists better understand methods and ways to approach their work in character design on fundamental levels. Tips and thinking and theory that will improve your art. The latest episode involves a look at how the head / neck / shoulder areas of a character integrate in various ways to help define the look of the character.
