F. A. Q.
What materials do I need?
During this course, I use an iPad Pro, and Apple Pencil, and the Procreate app. My iPad Pro is a 12.9 inch 1st generation. Kind of an oldie! But there are a lot of different versions you can work with. Just make sure the Apple Pencil and Procreate are compatible with yours. You can download Procreate for about 9,99 (depending on your country). Totally worth it, taking into account what you can do with it. Here you can find a list of the types of iPads that support Procreate.
Do I need to have an iPad / Apple Pencil / Procreate to participate?
No, not necessarily! An iPad is quite the investment. You could very well use this course as an orientation to see if any of these products are your cup of tea before you purchase them. It does mean that you might not be able to do the homework assignments. However, some drawing tips you can also execute with good ol’ pen ’n paper. Give it your own spin, or just enjoy watching what the other participants are creating.
I can’t make it on Oct 4th, now what?
No problem. You can join whenever you want. You will receive an email every Friday with your access code to the class. Starting a lot later? Then you’ll get access codes to the previous lessons, too.
How long will the class material stay available?
The material stays available for about 4 months, until Februari 2020. Gives you time to catch up during the Christmas break!;)
But I can’t draw!:(
First of all: don’t be so hard on yourself! Second of all: I’m gonna give you some handy tips that will make it a lot easier. Plus: drawing digitally is the perfect way to practice. Something with an undo-button…. 😉 You’ll be totally fine!
I don’t have Facebook, how does that work with the group?
Withouth Facebook, you can’t enter the group discussion. There is an alternative: you can create a fake account. Create a new email, be creative with a Fake Facebook Name, and keep the rest of your Facebook profile empty. All the lurking, none of the privacy invading! Just make sure to send me your Fake name, so I’ll know who to give access to the group;)
Will there be subtitles available?
Working on it! Currently, the final recording and editing stuff has priority, but I will add them as soon as I can!
