Illustration Master Class Day 1

It's like the first day of school...only with much more work is getting done.

An impressive amount of year-one alumni have returned -- we spent as much time reacquainting ourselves this morning as we did introducing ourselves.

After a few quick opening remarks, and an amazing video of all the instructors work that Rebecca Guay put together, we leaped straight into a six hour sketch critique. After dinner, Boris Vallejo, Julie Bell, Donato, and Dan Dos Santos did a hands-on photo shoot lecture. (Once again unleashing Donato's inner ham.)

Currently, it's midnight. Many of the instructors are demoing while the students either watch and ask questions or work revising their sketches.

For those following along at home, the choice of assignments were:
  • Firstborn: military science fiction story
  • Steampunk Wizard of OZ.
  • Lady of the Lake
  • Berserker Lord: Viking-ish fantasy, two warriors fighting a polar bear.
  • Princess of Mars
There seems to be a whole lot of ringers in this group. I can't wait to see what these rooms look like by Sunday.
