[H] Rocky Going
Summary :: Shocklight is leading a hunt through a canyon for some very tasty goats. Rayleigh has no trouble flying ahead and locating the herd. Will Shocklight reach and begin her feast before she is annoyed to death by Darkrider?
“Isn’t that stupid? I mean, why would we have to go through trials to earn a stupid handler badge that says we learned how to do something when we already know how to do it? Ridiculous!” Darkrider rumbled with disapproval.
Shocklight, flying next to him, sighed and wondered how her companion could fly so slowly yet run his mouth so quickly. She reminded herself that it was not her duty to teach him to think before he spoke and resumed scanning the rocky landscape for Rayleigh.
Rayleigh would be easy to spot against the brown with his dusted ivory coloring. Shocklight and Darkrider were stalker wevryns but Rayleigh was a warden dragon, larger and a winged quadruped to the wevryn

[E] Mixing Proximities
           Summary :: Zanrak contemplates disappointment over a failed encounter with WM103 with Mutayu and Voev. They encounter Albus who offers her aid in the future for wild tames. Can they trust him? Stravag and Jinanu contemplate them all from a distance.    
Zanrak kicked at the snow, walking ahead of Voev and Mutayu. She was wearing her official Xineng gear but she carried her carved headpiece with its fur hood.
She had failed Yejidei again.
Of all the tokotas she had been sent to assess in anticipation of adding them to Xineng, none had come to her. Granted, the TCA was the assigning force and it could not be easy sorting through such a large volume of wild tokota tamers and adopters – plus Yejidei had stressed it also had to be the tokota’s choice. Still, a part of Zanrak took each rejection personally and she sighed to the snowy slopes north of the Qammutiq Flats.
Voev trotted closer and nudged her sh

Looking for some help to improve your structure, study, and illustration skills? Want to improve your cartoony style? Want to get better at drawing from references and learn from peers all around the world? No matter your illustration goals, I think you'll enjoy and benefit from this course! 

Drawing Nature, Science and Culture: Natural History Illustration 101

There are two options:


Pursue a Verified Certificate ($49 USD)

Highlight your new knowledge and skills with a verified certificate. Use this valuable credential to improve your job prospects and advance your career, or highlight your certificate in school applications.

Benefits of a Verified Certificate

  • Official: Receive an instructor-signed certificate with the institution's logo
  • Easily shareable: Add the certificate to your CV or resume, or post it directly on LinkedIn
  • Motivating: Give yourself an additional incentive to complete the course
  • Support our Mission: EdX, a non-profit, relies on verified certificates to help fund free education for everyone globally

Audit This Course (No Certificate)

Audit this course for free and have complete access to all the course material, activities, tests, and forums.  Please note that this track does not offer a certificate for learners who earn a passing grade.

I took it last year and earned a certificate! More than the certificate, this course brought me back in touch with many of the original methods I used when I was younger learning to illustrate (observing from life), taught me how to apply methods I was doing intuitively on purpose and creatively (rule of thirds), and brought me in touch with new methods such as integrating foreground, midground, and background and where to place different elements to optimize the visual effects I wanted for a piece. A year later and I'm still expanding on what I learned but this course set me up with great basics! 

You have the option of taking the course for free and you'll have access to the message boards and the opportunity to learn from illustrators all over the world! Come across a method or assignment (these are optional in the free version) that you have trouble with? Everyone I spoke to on the message boards was amicable and happy to help out by presenting the method in a way that I understood. If you are in a spot where it's difficult to go out in the field, photo and video references are completely acceptable for the course submissions.

I'm taking it again as an audit (for free) to refresh myself. If you take it with me I'm happy to help you out with methods and assignment options!

See you there!

Hey, I love your art, it is gorgeous! My friend and I are new Esk owners that are currently creating our new esk, and I saw your comment in the Nursery offering to help! I am working on my Masterlist art now and have a few friends in the Esk community that brought me in and are helping me out, but I'd love to meet someone else in this awesome group, and its always great to have someone to bounce ideas off of if your offer still stands! I am on Discord a lot in the Esk group (my name on there is Sokolva) and also on here quite a bit!
