Trichroma Week 1 Assignments by Andantonius Trichroma Week 1 Assignments by Andantonius
Class is back in session! Over the past few months I've just been kind of piddling around with studies and not really getting anywhere, so I decided to get back in to a class-like structure. Not so much the environment, but rather the mindset that I'm going to purposefully study a subject for 6 months and get notably better at it. Plus, having assignments puts some walls on the limitless options of study, so it kills some of the fear of staring at a blank page trying to decide what to do.

So for the next 6 months and longer if it goes well, I'm gonna be "taking" 5 classes! The format is simple, weekly or bi-weekly assignments with three phases. A research section to increase knowledge about a particular topic, a study section to understand that knowledge with the help of reference, and an application section to implement that knowledge in to actual work.

I'll be posting all the assignments online in case anyone else finds this type of thing useful, anyone is welcome to join in on as many assignments as they'd like. If you do, send me a note and if there's enough interest I'll start up a Skype group or something where everyone can exchange feedback.

Onward to learning! :D

Thank you so much for sharing this with the rest of us!  You're reasoning is exactly what I needed, as the lack of structure of the paper-white abyss can be daunting...

oh thank you for this! i feel overwhelmed whenever i think about all those things i still need to learn, what resulted in postponing the start of learning sessions :c with strict and clear goals i think it should be easier for me. i hope i will be able to exchange feedback with you (you're the artist who i find my art-guru after all (: )

Yeah, the sheer number of topics to learn in art can be pretty overwhelming, breaking it down in to small chunks makes it (hopefully) more manageable. Glad you found this a useful starting point! :D

Awesome! I don't have a lot of time over, but these sound like some really fun and good studies, so I'll most definately try to rotate these with some other studies I'm participating in. Goodness knows I need it. If you make one, I'd be very much on board with a group, I find it a pretty good motivator to have others to share progress with and exchange feedback. I always stare myself blind on things.

Right on, feel free to take on any of the assignments that interest you! There's really no restrictions, so feel free to jump in and out as you please. We've also got a skype group going, feel free to send me your skype handle either here or via note and I'll send you a request. :)

Cheers!
