I’ve started making videos for Curious.com which is a new life-long learning website. YouTube is great, but as a video maker, you have to concentrate on entertainment rather than teaching. Curious.com has the ambition to enable teachers to make a living from their videos.
Their style and delivery are much more amenable to learning. Follow this link and get $25 of their coins free and try it out and let me know what you think. I’ve seen a lot of this kind of thing but I feel they have got a good system running.
You can see my first video here: How to draw Spooky Halloween Lettering
I’m trying to tidy up my how to draw video and get them sorted out with proper thumbnail images and tags. I’m also trying to clean up the links to my website, many of which have been lost as tags and systems change. Along the way I’m discovering that some old videos aren’t connected to my website at all, so I’ll be trying to put that right. So here is a video I made a couple of years ago for you to watch, enjoy and copy.
Max D from YouTube asked me to draw a Kawasaki Ninja Motor Bike and several other have asked for a motor bike. Well, I know little about motor bikes, but it’s all in working out the proportions. I hope this video helps.
Oh No! It’s full moon and the werewolves come out tonight! Learn to draw a werewolf – it won’t protect you but you might have a bit of fun. If you are doing the Summer Reading Challenge this will be good to get you in the mood for reading Creepy House stuff!
Or get it on your iPad here The Swamp Man on iPad
While I’m making my book, How to Draw Scary Stuff, I’ll be sharing some of the drawings with you on video. Make sure to keep coming back for more. This would be a really useful design for the Summer Reading Challenge – Creepy House.
I’m told in singapore schools that correction pens are banned because the students write graffiti on desks. I’m sure that any one reading this would be far more responsible! Wouldn’t they?
How can you draw the whole world in one go? Draw it as a globe sitting on a table or something. The globe is an iconic image, summoning up the idea that we can hold the whole world in our hands and spin it around at will.
It’s also very useful for finding where places are and how to get there! The trouble is you need a new globe each year as the countries change and places get new names and whole new cities are constructed in the middle of nowhere!
I’m getting ready for Carfest North this coming weekend the 2nd, 3rd and 4th of August 2013. I will be there with Derwent Pencils showing how to draw stuff and showing off their fantastic range of drawing materials. If you are going to be there, come along to the Derwent tent and say hello.
To get into the mood, I made this video to show how to work out the proportions for designing sports saloon type cars, have fun!
