Group Mentorship

Get pro guidance on your personal artwork!

Skill Level: Advanced

Duration: 8 weeks (5 sessions)

Begins: July, 2024

Sessions: Live sessions every two weeks
Price: $425

Instructors: Clint & Diana Cearley


  • Have already finished studying the fundamentals

  • Currently building illustrations for their portfolio

  • Want to work on personal pieces but with pro guidance

  • Need targeted image-specific feedback, not structured lessons


Think of the class as a consult with pros on the image(s) of your choice every two weeks for 5 sessions. Receive guidance on the art you submit; there's no set curriculum or foundational teaching like the other classes. Send in your art and we'll give our input on how to improve it, possible problems to avoid, and explanations on how to tackle difficult issues of your image. Drawovers and paintovers will be utilized as needed throughout the class in addition to plenty of time to talk with instructors and get your questions answered. Feedback will be given during the live Zoom sessions, and in front of the other students.

It's up to you whether you choose to start a new piece at the beginning of the class and get feedback throughout its process, or whether you send in different images every week (or a mix between them). Limit of one image per week for review.

To give plenty of time for each student, there are only 8 spots available per group. This class does not have the usual midterm break week as it is bi-weekly by nature.


Please note that this class is not suitable for beginners and many intermediates. It is aimed for those who are preparing a portfolio to get professional work and those who are getting small gigs but want to level up their art. If your work often contains mistakes in anatomy, perspective, shading, values, or lighting, then this class isn't for you.


Don't miss this opportunity to learn from the best and take your art to the next level! Only 8 places available for this class.

Will become available July, 2024

"I really enjoyed your class, I think you and Clint are great teachers, especially when you work together to teach the class. You both can offer different perspectives and various tips based on your individual experiences, so when you team up it’s really great! . . the PDFs, demos and exercises you guys provided I was able to learn a lot. ..thank you for everything you taught me!" -Miyuki (student)




Join the Zoom sessions or watch the recording later. There will be opportunity to ask questions during the live sessions or submit them prior if you won't be able to attend live.

Skills & Difficulty


Student work created in this class:


Setup: Students will need HD video streaming speed internet, Adobe Photoshop (or similar digital painting program), and a drawing pad and stylus (like Wacom or Gaomon). A microphone and webcam are also recommended if students plan on joining the Zoom lessons live.


"Clint and Diana's feedback is very objective and professional, yet very kind and friendly that not only makes you push yourself and your skills beyond what you think you could do, but also makes you feel good and encouraged to work while receiving feedback. I can see a noticeable leap in my skills before and after their class, and I'm more than grateful for that."
