Conte Pastels and New trailer

Here I was garbed with my spinning beanie hat interacting on art workshop online as a tester student. This is for our latest class offering, a sepia or sanguine portrait class by a master of the medium Leslie B. DeMille. My 3-eyed drawing depicts different eye angles which Les demonstrates in his class.

First he drew some fruits to show simpler shapes that are reminiscent of faces but less intimidating to draw. Then the facial features: eyes, noses and mouths. Then a portrait from start to finish that he drew from a live model. Click on each of my images to see better if you wish to see larger :)

Finally another trailer I've edited today. The youtube videos are the only public ones and it's less than a 5th of what I edit daily since I started working for MyArtTutor. But we can only make the complete class videos available to students. So I hope you enjoy another trailer by me for MyArtTutor!

My Art Tutor Launches!

A little over 24 hours ago, I found out the company,, I've been working for as Creative Editor etc. has chosen to make their public debut and launch off their first online art workshop. My contribution to the launch was to throw together the best Youtube video to talk about the online art workshop we are offering and how it works so that we can offer an interactive and hands-on learning experience for the art students. So about 9PM I went ahead and published this video on Youtube

Of course I would have liked to have spent 2 more days on the creation of the video, it but I'm so glad we made it happen on September 3rd! This is one of many art classes we're getting ready to roll out continuously so we'd love to know what you think about it! Our art teachers will walk you through your choice of medium and subject then give you assignments based on the skill level you are comfortable with and when you submit your assignments, they will be put up for discussions (or not if you prefer not to), and the art instructor will give individual critique of your work!

I hope this tells some of my readers and friends where I've been hiding lately. :) To give you an idea how much content we have, we work 7 days/week and averaging 15 hour days!
