50 (who?)
Are you tired of deliberately writing easy comic stories that let you get away with not drawing backgrounds?

Are you sick of your buildings looking like cardboard boxes?

Does every book on drawing perspective look like greek and super-advanced calculus to you?

Do you have amazing scenes in your head, but you feel like your hands just can't draw them?
I've teamed up with Skillshare to put my years of professional comic art experience to good teaching the background-phobic among us how to LOVE backgrounds, draw them right, draw them well, even draw them in your sleep!

Read all about it here:…
Then sign up for the class here!:

Not a comic book artist?  Not a problem!  This class is for ALL kinds of illustrators and artists, both beginners and intermediates.  If you can hold a ruler and locate a pencil, you CAN draw backgrounds!

So stop wasting your time trying to plan your whole story out so that you can avoid drawing buildings, cars or crowds.  Take this short course and you'll be amazed at how just talented and innovative you can be when you stop fearing backgrounds!

CLASS IS JUST 20 DOLLARS FOR THE ENTIRE COURSE and you can learn at your own pace, go back and re-watch video lessons as much as you like and collaborate with other students online to get honest and helpful feedback!  Classes start August 21st, but the first 100 students to use the discount code EDANIEL will get a 10% discount!

And the first TEN students to sign up who use the code EXLIBRIS get a whopping 25% discount!  Fifteen bucks is all you'll pay for the whole course!

So make an investment in yourself and your skills...sign up today!:

If you like this class idea, but don't really need it for yourself right now, why not fave this journal so your friends can find it?  Lots of people need background art help and have no idea where to turn, so spread this journal around and spread the word.  Thanks! :3

So excited to start this course, I've always envied your skills at drawing all the elaborate buildings in Bizenghast and I'm terrible at anything non-human! YAYYYYYYY

I've tried to sign up three times and every time the site tells me my payment can't go through. I've checked my checking account and there's nothing wrong there. I'm just wondering if other people have been having this issue and if you knew/could do anything such as let the skillshare site know. Can't wait to join the class! :)

you should prolly write to them and ask for help, I think they maybe have a help desk available?

I did, and hopefully they'll be able to help. Thanks for the advice. :)

Great! I've taken a couple of fantastic skillshare courses! I can't wait to take yours, too! Backgrounds have always driven me nuts, but I'm doing more and more of them in my interactive work for lack of budget to bring on dedicated background artists.
