    3dtotal has recently launched the incredible 100 Hours campaign on Kickstarter so we wanted to give you a bit more information about this fascinating project here. The aim is to bring together 100 hours’ worth of video tutorials featuring 100 artists, all for an affordable one-off payment of £18 (approx. US$25). If successful, the videos will be hosted on the 100 Hours website where backers will be given a unique login and password that will allow them to stream videos on their computer, phone or tablet. It will also be possible to download the videos so you can keep them forever to watch and learn from over and over again.

    3dtotal currently has over 80 artists lined up so far and are asking backers to suggest artists they would like to be included as well. The tutorials will cover a range of artistic media and styles, including traditional sculpting and drawing, as well as digital 2D and 3D art. Randy Bishop, Wylie Beckert, Abigail Larson, Jesse Aclin and Tran Nguyen are among some of the artists involved.

    The tutorials will all be created afresh for this project, so the video content will be new and exclusive to 100 Hours backers. The wide range of artists involved means that there should be something for everybody, whether you are a traditional artist, sculptor, or digital painter. It is a project by artists, for artists.

    When 3DTotal offered the Illustrator’s Lounge an opportunity to review their Sketch Workshop series I jumped at the chance. I first heard about it through their exceedingly successful Kickstarter campaign. My intrigued was peaked, how would they tackle explaining some rather complex and layered subject matters to a novice?

    Expecting to receive one or two of the workbooks, when I opened the parcel to find the entire Sketch Workshop bundle, there was a genuine gasp of joy. It included the leather-style folder, all five workbooks, and a set of drawl-inducing drawing tools, including five Koh-I-Noor graphite pencils. It is a very attractive set, which I sat staring at for a while, before it suddenly dawned on me that I may need some help if I planned on doing a review of this set any justice.

    The Book Review

    A follow up to Sketching from the Imagination, Sketching from the Imagination: Fantasy is a chunky square size paperback that showcases a plethora of illustrators. Many of whom I was being introduced to for the first time. Like many artist, I love flicking through other people’s sketchbooks. There is an element of freedom and expression in an artist sketchbook that rarely translate into their commercial work which make them so captivating.
