Digital painting is your passion… but is it also driving you nuts?

When you sit down to paint…

o you hear yourself say things like…

“Rendering skin tones is IMPOSSIBLE!”

“I can’t figure out how coloring works”

Perspective and proportions are SOOOOooo HARD!

“I don’t know which brushes to use”

“Sketching on a tablet is WAY harder than on paper”

… and so on?

If these sound familiar, then I know your pain. I too was frustrated by my slow progress as a beginner artist.

With lots of time, mistakes, and frustration, I finally figured out what it takes to sharpen my skills. My method has worked for over 9000 other digital artists, and now I’d love to help you do the same.

Learning Digital painting doesn’t have to be hard and frustrating.

I know! It seems as you have SO MUCH TO LEARN! That you’ll never get there. You can drive yourself nuts trying to learn it all from YouTube videos.

Or even worse, having your favorite artist telling you all you need is “practice”. Practice WHAT?? Practice HOW???

For years I thought learning digital painting was the hardest thing someone could do. I thought you needed to be born with talent to really make it…

I thought I’d never become skilled enough to become a professional artist, let alone make a living from my art.

But I was wrong…

The Active Learning Method
What Is That Exactly?

Most people practice ‘passively’, thinking: “If I practice I’ll get better naturally”. This is a popular misconception.

Progress, real progress, only happens when you have a goal in mind and know how to deconstruct complex topics into manageable smaller chunks of information. This is what “Active Learning” means.

Lucky for you the Digital Painting Academy has already laid down the groundwork for you. We have broken down every complex topic with clear step-by-step processes that follow the 7 key steps at the heart of the Active Learning Method:

Work with a goal or a destination

Create step-by-step learning paths

Practice with ultra-focused exercises

Set a timeline and deadlines

Track your progress and be accountable

Surround yourself with like-minded peers

Create a daily art habit

Every Learning Path inside the Academy follows these 7 key steps, so all you have to do is follow the steps and enjoy the ride.

By joining the academy you’ll get Immediate access to our 8 sequential learning Paths

We’ve created the perfect step-by-step learning program for you!

Learn every topic needed to paint from imagination. Everything is broken down into manageable pieces, packed with exercises, and put into the right order for you. All you need to do is start at the beginning, go through the modules, exercises, and homework to see progress. You’ll gain momentum like never before.

I really enjoyed the organized structure of the courses. The foundations and the modules for individual aspects such as hair, skin tones or anatomy made it easy to divide my studying time into smaller chunks. That really helps with the motivation to continue learning and painting!

I love the site and can’t begin to tell you what a difference it’s made for me. I went from ‘I have an art degree’ being the funniest joke I could tell to actually making work that looks good.

I feel far more comfortable with digital painting now. I don’t struggle with smooth blending and I’ve learnt lots of easy tips and tricks that make it easy to fix mistakes or to really push the drawing to the next level. Basically, I’ve learnt how to use technology efficiently to create beautiful paintings.



Who Is This For?

The Digital Painting Academy is especially helpful if any of the following apply to you:

  • You’re highly passionate about digital art and illustration, but you’re feeling a little lost or overwhelmed by it all, OR…
  • You’ve tried teaching yourself how to paint, but you’re frustrated by your slow progress, and don’t know exactly what you should be working on next, OR…
  • Perhaps you dream of one day earning and income from your art, as an illustrator, concept artist, character designer, etc, OR…
  • You want to learn from an experienced artist, so you can get really good, really fast (without the years wasted on trial-and-error), OR…
  • You’re busy and don’t have much time to practice, so when you do have time you want to make sure it counts!
  • You want to become a better digital artist, FAST!

Will This Work For Me?

If you’ve read this far then I know you’re serious, but there could be a few thoughts running through your mind. Things like…

“I don’t have enough time to go through this.”

What’s waiting for you inside is the ultimate shortcut – I’ve condensed 10 years of my personal struggling into power-packed modules. The Academy is self-paced with quick 5 min videos, so you can literally fit lessons in every day no matter your schedule. This could cut YEARS out of the time it takes you to become a professional artist… so, the question really is, do you have time NOT to do it?

But I get it. We’re all busy. It’s a matter of asking yourself, “is it worth the time to develop the skills to earn an income as a concept artist, digital illustrator, or graphic artist?” If you’re serious about your art then the answer is “YES!”

“I think I’m too old to become a professional artist.”

Art is of the mind, not the body. Believe me, you can earn an income as a concept artist, digital illustrator, or graphic artist no matter how “old” (or young) you are. I didn’t even begin painting properly myself until I was 30. And not long ago, I had a number of students turn professional after they retired from their “pay the bills” job. 

The “age thing” is a mental roadblock that’s keeping you from realizing your true artistic abilities that simply haven’t been uncovered yet. And together, I’ll help you discover them as we create your stunning portraits together. Yes, “together” because you’ll have accountability and community support along the way. Fact is, it’s never too late.

“Why should I invest in this, when there’s a ton of free resources available online?”

I call it the “YouTube Vortex” that brings you down a rabbit hole so deep you can’t even find the entrance of how you got there. The same thing happens when scrolling forums, reading articles, and chewing through books. The problem is that nothing is linear. Free content doesn’t provide support, community, accountability, and feedback. Think about all those unfinished paintings you’ve started and then… *look a shiny object*. Yeah, I’m talking about THOSE.

Yep… you’re covered by our 30-day, no-questions-asked guarantee!

In other words, if you aren’t happy for any reason, just let us know and we’ll give you your money back. We obviously don’t think it’ll come to that, but if you’re even the least bit worried if this will work for you, then put your mind at ease.

You either get the results you want or you get your money back. It’s as simple as that!
