About the Instructor

Art crit. The very words strike fear in hearts of art students
everywhere. But you can't truly grow as an artist unless you learn how
to take the dreaded crit in stride. As the writer Norman Vincent Peale
once said, "The trouble with most of us is that we would rather be
ruined by praise than saved by criticism."
This critique was
originally held in January 2016. Pro illustrators Marco Bucci and Will Terry critiqued the personal work of 10 SVS students. Each student
submitted one digital painting for critique. This is the recorded version of that class.
Follow along as Marco and Will deconstruct each image and give feedback on how to improve the work, both visually and conceptually (don't worry, neither one has fangs). Even though these are critiques of other people's work, you can still learn quite a lot!SVS offers live critiques several times a year, please subscribe to the SVS newsletter to receive updates
