Silver Drawing Academy Information

Hi there character designers! Luigi Lucarelli here with some cool information for anyone who wants to learn from a legend!!

Recently my good friend, Stephen Silver, (Character Designer for shows like Kim Possible, Danny Phantom, and Clerks) has opened up an art academy! His academy focuses on teaching: Character Design, Caricature/Figure Drawing, Uninstructed Gesture Drawing, Weekend Workshops, and Storyboarding 101 :D

When I was living in Japan I remember really wanting to push myself as a character designer and one day stumbling across an online podcast by Stephen Silver. He did a few live streams where he would talk to people live while drawing, then he'd open up the floor for questions. It was an inspirational experience for me and I learned a lot in that short time.

If Stephen Silver had his own school when I was in Japan, I probably would have flown back to California just to go there for a while! Now he DOES have a school and I think it's a great opportunity for anyone interested in improving their skills and learning about the art industry.

Here are links to the Academy and more information:

I accidentally re-submitted a deviation twice because my mouse double clicks sometimes. Just explaining because I wasn't spamming anyone here or anything.
