« Excellent! Jimmy has a laid back approach towards is teaching. This best suits me as there is no pressure to conform and the work environment is at its best. Jimmy revolves the work/topic of work choices to me so i get as much out of the lesson as i can how i want to. While i tend to sidetracked at times particularly if theres any food in my fridge jimmy turns my attention back to the matter at hand in a stern but in a friendly way. Jimmy knowledge and skill in art is diverse he has offered digital drawing, manga drawing, realism drawing, cartoon drawing etc. I have only been taking lessons from jimmy for about just under month so i have no ground breaking milestones slayed thanks to him but i have made significant progress with him and hope to do more and eventually reach my big goals. With that said i give jimmy 9/10 its only 9/10 and not a 10/10 because jimmy has yet to evolve to his final generation level but man his he close...i highly recommend this teacher to anyone else :) »

Animation Graduate with real world experience in Perth to teach Tradition Arts and Creative Digital mediums

Methodology

These lessons will prepare you with what you'll need in the real world, Help you to critique your own artwork and develop your skills.

I want to teach the person not just the coursework. For example...
- Do you want to be an Illustrator or Concept artist?
- Do you want to learn Photoshop for digital painting and graphic design?
- Are you a Primary/High school student interested in comic book creation, Art and Illustration but you need to be critiqued and taught more advanced skills?
- Are you looking to move into the Interactive Entertainment field such as Animation or game development but are unsure on what is required?
- Do you want to learn the theoretical side of Animation and the skills involved in the course?
- Are you trying to find your art style or create professional and appealing artwork?
- Are you an untrained creative who's looking for some constructive criticism?
- Are you unsure of your strengths and weaknesses and want to develop them, and turn your weaknesses into strengths

I'm your man!

Geared more for beginners and students looking to move into a certain field or develop their skills further. Ill help you understand anatomy, composition, animation, theoretical animation, professional trends, colour theory and art theory.

I want my students to develop their own observations and skills through the medium, by the end they will know how to make a drawing emote, tell a story, look professional and appealing and how to analyse and critique your own artwork.

Background

I graduated my Bachelors Degree in Interactive Entertainment majoring in Animation in January of 2014.
It was a tough course, only 3 out of 36 students graduated that year. I helped other students, tutoring as much as I could while at University. Since then I have worked in graphics design, illustration for video games, illustrations for board games and have created comic book strips for film and page.

I have actively been teaching and taking on students for a few years now and really enjoy watching the growth in students.

Jimmy's response

Peter shows a lot of talent for his age. He just needs some more time to develop and practice his hand and mind to new concepts. I think that in time he will gain the knowledge he seeks himself, once he learns to critically inspect and analyse the figures and foundations he wants to draw. He doubts himself a lot and over criticises his work. He also struggles to keep to task at times, but his improvement is there. His penmanship and line depth has improved a lot. He understands a lot of advanced teachings, is very enthusiastic with his art. shows a true passion, Other than that Peter is a very welcoming and kind person. He is young but intelligent and mature from what Ive seen from interactions with him. He is a great student that Ive enjoyed to see grow and develop in his art Journey!

I hope that I gave him enough inspiration, imagination, knowledge and guidance to develop further and I hope to have more students like him.
