Thank you for registering! Here’s the 136 minute live session with Will TerryJake Parker and Mark Mitchell that “aired” live on Thursday.

It turned out to be a whole lot more than two mini-lessons! Click here to see the full recording!

Will shared an insightful, little known concept that could make all the difference in your artwork. (The audio distortion goes away after just a few minutes, when he switches to a headset and adjusts his microphone.)

Jake responded to a viewer’s request to see a dragon on Big Wheels, and served up a totally un-rehearsed rendering on his Cintiq screen along with a thoughtful commentary on his drawing and painting process.

A compelling Q&A followed the lesson slides and demo. You can download a PDF of the text chat transcript (all that note passing that went on behind the presenters backs in the classroom) here.

    I could hear them but teh screen was white?

    • Dayne, try a different browser. Chrome, for example doesn’t always work too well with Also do you have the latest add-on for Shockwave Flash. I’m sorry the replays gave you a difficult time. I know that’s frustrating.

  4. Dayne Sislen says:

    I got so frustrated with the terrible sound and video lags I gave up three times. Never got to hear Jake.

    I watched using Chrome and it played fine. I really enjoyed this and learned a lot, thank you!
