Count me in!

This couldn't come at a better time.... I just graduated from AnimationMentor.com and am really stoked to get back into my drawing / painting after such a long hiatus. There's no better way I've found to firm up your own knowledge and skills than to have to explain / demo to other people!

Let me know where i can best fit in... Happy and able to contribute!

gilgamesh, that's great! Feel free to just create a Tutorial on any topic you choose - I posted several topic suggestions to the front of this thread, but my no means are they comprehensive - please just feel free to create a Tutorial on any subject and post it here for group review. I don't anticipate that there will be many changes necessary, it's just a way to get organized before going forward with this. Thanks for your willingness to help!

The only thing I would like to see is images which have the standard width of 800 pix max x appropriate length. Apart from that, just do the tutorial / s you would most like to!

You may want to create your tutorials at 300 dpi / print resolution and then resize for web posting. That way if someone wants a PDF they (or you, or I) can make one.

Becca, here's a quick draft for the first of my mini-cloth-series thing - anybody have any input or shall I post it?

http://ailsamacpherson.com/cloth01.php

I guess it's categorised as a beginners tutorial, right?

That's awesome, Ailsa, as we talked about, I think we should run your Tutorial as part of the next OFDW.

Thanks for the awesome tut!! It looks gorgeous. I don't think you need to specify whether this is for any particular level.

Cheers,

-Rebecca

Quick question....

It's been stated that "copyrighted images can't be used in demos".... how about a drawing based on a copyrighted image (like one of Hong Ly's photos from his site where the source photo is NOT included as part of the demo)? And are images from the web gallery of art considered copyrighted images?

Thanks!

gilgamesh, the photos from www.characterdesigns.com are uncopyrighted, and can be used for whatever artistic purpose, including demos.

I'm also sure if you asked Ben Miller, our resident figure model, he would probably give you permission to use his images as well for demo purposes.

I don't know about wga images, my concern with them is that they don't have unique urls assigned to individual images, so I don't know if that means they don't want their images linked. I might recommend going with artrenewal.org instead, since they have a large database (the images are actually better / higher resolution in some cases) and assign unique urls to individual images.

Cheers,

-Rebecca

yes i think it's a beginners tutorial! I'm a beginer and i took it! it was simple straight forward and didn't give away to much info that ruined me learning a little but more of painting on the computer. I did at times kinda wonder exactly how to achieve a smooth gradation well but i guess thats something that comes with practise just like drawing or painting. i felt maybe you could include some more dealing with cloth painting but i see you are making another tut that will do just that so i look forward to taking that! Thanks for taking that time to put this together.

You can host images through here, articles can be added to, and edited by users, and people will be more likely to find information. (The search functionality is much better)

Anton,

Part of the problem with people putting their tutorials on the Wiki is that they are discouraged from self-promoting - eg leaving links to their websites etc. Quite often people create tutorials so that people visit their websites - not to support CGS or the Wiki - so is it okay for people to include links to their websites if they contribute to the Wiki a tutorial they originally intended for their website? I think it's only fair, and, you are far more likely to get contributions that way in terms of drawing / painting tutorials and the like.

I also would find it far more useful if I could include external links to the Workshop threads etc. to which specific tutorials relate. Information is nice but I find people are far more likely to use it in the context of a Workshop where there is actual interaction.

Hi...Rebecca...
I have a few things in my anatomy thread, ..small tutorials, and some not so small, that might be useful for what your putting together...also a ton of advice and help given on other peoples threads over the course of the last couple of years...it's out there somewhere..LOL
If you think anything I have written and shown may be useful in this new venture, and you can figure out how to find and utalize it in some way.....GO FOR IT...
I would be glad to help in any way I can with this new idea of yours....am open to any and all suggestions...plenty of time on my hands as you already know.. LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK.
TAKE CARE
Glenn
