About Official Critique

If I pay for official critique but cannot afford it at some point and stop for a while, what happens to my lessons? Do I have to start from level 1 after I can afford the membership again, or can I start from the level I left before?

Official critique uses a credit system.

The moment you subscribe to a membership level in the Patreon page you will get charged for the respective amount. At the same time you will get the respective amount of credits for that membership level added in drawabox.com website. Credits expire after 2 months (I think) if not used.

You can check how much credits each lesson takes by going to that lesson, clicking on "Submit homework for review" and then clikcing the "Submit for Official Critique" button. That will show a new panel which shows your current number of credits and the amount of credits the official critique for the lesson costs.

Your progress thru the lessons is tracked thru your drawabox.com account and is independent of the Patreon membership. So you can subscribe to Patreon membership, immediately submit your homework for official critique and then cancel Patreon membership (note that by then you already have been charged for the month, and already got the credits in drawabox.com).

Thank you for your explanation in detail. It certainly helped.

ComicAd Network is an advertising platform built for comics and other creative projects to affordably get the word out about what they're making. We use them for our webcomic, and while they don't pay much, we wanted to put one of their ad slots here to help support other creatives.

The Art of Blizzard Entertainment

While I have a massive library of non-instructional art books I've collected over the years, there's only a handful that are actually important to me. This is one of them - so much so that I jammed my copy into my overstuffed backpack when flying back from my parents' house just so I could have it at my apartment. My back's been sore for a week.

The reason I hold this book in such high esteem is because of how it puts the relatively new field of game art into perspective, showing how concept art really just started off as crude sketches intended to communicate ideas to storytellers, designers and 3D modelers. How all of this focus on beautiful illustrations is really secondary to the core of a concept artist's job. A real eye-opener.
