How can I help you?
I'm Clint Cearley, professional illustrator and art educator. Trained in both traditional and digital media, I've worked on over 100 projects with major companies including Wizards of the Coast, Applibot, Scholastic, Simon & Schuster, Valve, and more. I've produced educational art materials on character design, lighting, colors, composition, the painting process, and many others topics (available here).
"I did the 1-on-1 art consultation with Clint a couple weeks ago and found it VERY inspiring and helpful...I can already tell how much I got out of that. I fully recommend this to you guys that are serious about getting better."
You set the subject for the consult. Common subjects include a portfolio review, strategizing art direction in the industry, creating an education outline, and troubleshooting a difficult or important image. There is a series of questions to fill out during the booking process that will aid me in understanding the issues to address before the session.
The hour consult session will be you and me on a Google Hangouts session (it's like Zoom or Skype), a link to which I will email you just prior to the session start. We'll begin with a discussion of the issues being addressed, then move into screen-sharing Photoshop to discuss and paint-over images as needed.
Sessions are not recorded from my side but you are free to record them if you wish. If you don't, I do advise having pen and paper on hand to take notes.
As these are video consults, you'll need a webcam, microphone, streaming sufficient internet, and be able to speak English moderately well.
"Just wanted to say I did a private consult with Clint last week. I highly recommend it! He is a great teacher. Will do it again."
