I have never heard of this!! As somebody entirely self-taught, I’m always on the lookout for good online classes/tutorials and this one looks interesting! 🙂

CA.org has been around a while, but I think the “Level Up” program is pretty new… there’s two levels that are currently free on the forum (this being one of them), so you can check it out before you buy if you’re so inclined, too. 🙂 I can’t really review it properly yet since this was the first thing I’ve done, heh, but you’re supposed to be getting regular, personalized critiques as part of the program, which will be nice.

Started doing Level Up on ConceptArt.org… this is going to take me forever, because the first assignment on composition is 20 master studies and it took me a couple weeks to actually sit down and do this first one. Manet, just for values, limited to ~1 hour of work and a fairly small canvas (upon trying to upload to the forum I realized I was still working larger than I ought to have but owell).

I think I had some issues with screen calibration, too, though, because I really thought the light areas were better matched. (I think it’s fairly obvious the difference in skill, but just in case it’s confusing, mine is on the right.)
