FAQ

The first lessons will premiere the week of 3/16/2020, with new modules released each week, and new lessons released approximately every 2 days. Once the content is released, it never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course – you decide when you start and when you finish.

Absolutely! This course is meant to be an accompaniment to a traditional art education. It will cover the basics of concept art, digital painting, rendering, photobashing, and brushwork, in addition to which of those skills are most important to your career, and how to leverage your own superpowers into a fantastic career, from someone who’s inside the industry.

This is the course art schools won’t teach you.

A resounding “YES!” If you’ve already got an established concept career, you will be amazed at how quickly this course can work for you. By addressing many of the subconscious beliefs around your career, strengths, and weaknesses, you will quickly be given access to the growth that you feel has been denied you for so long.

Nope! This course is equal parts theory and direct application. There will be lots of painting demonstrations, as well as detailed tutorials for how to put the ideas into practice – but it will also address your mindset and process – with the knowledge that changing your approach to painting can change everything, without ever laying a brush stroke!

Forever. By enrolling in this course, you gain lifetime access to it, as well as all the workbooks and cheat sheets, and any updates made to it in the future.

That depends on you! The course is structured as a six-week, three-lessons-per-week curriculum, with lessons approximately every two days.

However, once all content is released, if you are absolutely determined you could binge it all in one sitting. In this way you could come back again and again to reference key lessons as you work.

This is primarily a Photoshop course and will focus on that as it is the industry standard. It will also touch on tools which come with an Adobe CC license, such as Mixamo and Fuse, but everything else will relying on free, open resources (like google earth, blender, etc).

If for any reason you’re not happy with this course and/or it doesn’t improve your career and skills, I will offer you an unconditional refund. I don’t want to take your money and offer you something that doesn’t actually bring improvement to your life.

Simply contact me within 30 days of purchase for a full return, no questions asked.

ABOUT YOUR INSTRUCTOR

I’m Chris Madden, a 10+ year concept art vet. I’ve worked for some of the top companies in the world – Microsoft, Amazon, and LucasFilm – and worked with clients such as Square Enix, Capcom, Fantasy Flight, and IDW Entertainment.

I have a passion for creating art and teaching people to harness the raw talent they already have. I believe that every skill is teachable, and that it’s easier than you’d think to learn new skills – often, the only roadblock is believing you can’t do it. 

I’ll help you see that you can.
