Piratical Values by Artsammich Piratical Values by Artsammich
I painted this as a demonstration of how to use lighting to control value for my new Schoolism class which will be starting this fall. I see it as a companion class to my other one (used to be called "Advanced Lighting," it's still an advanced class though), where the "Fundamentals" class talks about the technical aspects of painting light and surface, and the new Concept/Story Lighting class will talk about translating those technical skills into well-designed and appealing images.

Thanks everyone for the support and comments, I know I don't comment back as often as I ought to, but I read everything even when I'm short on time and even the small kindnesses!

I've already taken Sam's Advanced Lighting and I'm confident to say it has been one of the best instruction I could ever imagine and my works made a huge leap. I'm sure this class is going to be even better, and the both combined are going to be the rock solid concepts and techniques to be a PRO artist. Thanks for sharing this great piece with us. I hope we can see each other in class!

I'm actually saving up alot of money to enroll in these classes in the future :) How long are you going to lecture all in all?

:iconartsammich:
Artsammich Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2014
Do you mean how long is each lecture, or how much time spent lecturing in a class overall? Sorry, I don't quite understand.

Oh I should have written the sentence better; how many years do you intend on giving lectures like these online? Say if I can't afford it for the next 1-2 years.

I'll keep teaching as long as people want to take the classes. Every class I've offered has filled up early, so it looks like things might keep going for a while still.

Oh that sounds great! I'll definitively enroll once I have enough money saved up :)

I would LOVE to take your new class! I was a student in your first class and I really, really enjoyed it. Anyways, I'm always impressed by your work, great job!

Thank you! Did you take the self-taught or the critiqued? (I'd probably remember you if it was the critiqued, but you never know with my brain these days)

WhiteTreeFox Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2014
I had the critiqued but it's been a long time, 2 years I think. So it totally makes sense if you don't remember, hahaha. Your class was really helpful to me though, but I definitely have soooo far to go. It's a fun journey though!

What name did you go by in the class, do you remember? Sometimes it's people's real names, other times it's monikers, so I might have your art mentally categorized under a different name.

I was probably under Sara Denman, since it was before I got married...this might help too, this was my last assignment: whitetreefox.com/images/Lesson…

Yes, of course, Hi Sara! I'm like the bartender in the Dortmunder novels who recognizes people by the drinks they order, except with art.

I really love the style of this! It's very very original and he makes a perfect character. It caught my eye immediately, and I think the shading is absolutely stunning, I especially like the shirt and hat! I definitely look forward to seeing more from you!

This is absolutely awesome. The shading and highlights are in perfect harmony so it looks like a 3D model.
