I offer 1-on-1 mentoring, art lessons, and advice through Discord screenshare calls, where I share my techniques and answer all of your questions in great detail.
I am generally more loose in terms of my teaching style and prefer to guide you while you work at your own pace. As a mentor, I will serve as a resource for whenever you need specialized help with art. When you have a question or want to get feedback on your work, you can reach out to me for a call. Think of it like scheduling office hours with a teacher.
There is no required schedule or curriculum for my mentorships. However, if you are practicing a lot and want a more structured schedule such as a weekly review of your progress, I'm happy to offer that as well.
If interested, please fill the form at the bottom of this page, or reach out directly to my Discord username: nyx_aurelia
Lessons typically consist of:
But if you have anything else you'd like me to do, you can let me know - feedback, discussing other my/artists' work, quick painting/sketch corrections, opinions, Q&A, etc.
Lesson paint-over with @fushigi_ari (Instagram) - Focusing on creating contrast, interesting lighting, and dramatic atmosphere.
Lesson paint-over with anonymouse student - confidence with shadows and color choice / anime style.
1 - student was stuck on this drawing. 2 - my quick lesson demo, an example of what shading could look like. 3 - progress my student sent me after the lesson, where they applied shadows and color differently but still effectively. Putting your own spin on my lessons like this is definitely encouraged!
Here's some examples of topics I can teach:
I offer a discount for the first lesson! Send me some of your works, and I'll give you some advice during the lesson to see what topics you should focus on.
You can use this lesson to see my teaching style, ask any questions, and see if we're a good fit for each other. Or, you can get started immediately and have me paint over one of your works.
If you decide you want to mentor with me again, I'll be able to work with you with ongoing topics and advice.
Simply reach out whenever you have new progress on your work or questions that need in-depth explanations. Generally, Discord lessons are 1-1.5 hours each. 30 minute lessons are also possible if you want quick markups or a question or two.
I'm also open to doing a regular weekly, biweekly, or monthly schedule.
You can use the lessons in this package for however you want. Every week for a month, or every 2 weeks for 2 months, once a month for 4 months, etc., or you can save them for whenever you'd like. Lessons are usually 1 hour each, but if we find that a longer time is better, I can propose a bigger bundle for you.
I can usually set up a lesson within a week of contact. For reference, I am in Central Time Zone/United States, but I can make some odd hours work once in a while. Please fill this form if interested! You can also send me this info directly to my username nyx_aurelia.
