Here are two videos I have made, on behalf of both TAD and my site to be, Lemenaid.blogspot.com until I get the bigger site set up.
These are a bit of what you will get with us over at TAD, and more over, this is my type of instruction, drop it all on you and let you sort it out later.
Have to get back over here and get back involved, if I only could ask for more time in a day. Take care everyone, glad to see so much good stuff poppin up every day still.
Thank you all for the inspiring new images, glad to see many of you still around, and hope to connect with you all again soon.
Great videos, Ron! Thanks for taking the time to put them together, TAD is lucky to have you!
Thanks for taking the time to post these videos, they are great!
I have appreciated your sketchbook class for TAD tremendously this last semester. I can't wait to visit your classes next semester.
Thanks for being a part of TAD, your awesome,
to you all, you are welcome and certainly more to come.
John, it has been an honor to serve on such a fine army...heh
I love the group, the school, the idea, the mission, its a great idea, and long overdue. And I am so impressed with everyone. We have an amazing thing here. I can't wait to grow it out more.
Thank you again.
okay, so the full site will not be up until a little after the first of the year. In the meantime, this will be the temporary location for any new videos I put up related to the site.
The site is dedicated to the drawing and painting problems we face as artists. If you have any suggestions on videos you think would be useful, tips you think might make life easier for you as an artist, be it traditional or digital, post them here or on the blog and I will attempt in my life of little time to address what I can. This blog, site, is a living site; it is fueled by your artistic needs, and what I see as a reoccurring problem with my students. The more we interact on these issues, the clarity we will have as artists.
A big concept overlooked mostly in school, you are learning to PROBLEM SOLVE, which means, solutions for problems. Education isn't just making you into a better draftsman, that education is feeding you with correctional devices for when your pictures don't work the way you want them to, either technically, emotionally, or in how they communicate their intention.
You've more than likely seen the videos already, but I appreciate it if you stop by and leave some feedback there, a more universal spot for me to go to regularly. Thank you all TONS AND TONS. My goal is to help make all this art stuff easier for all of us to do, and I hope you get more than your fill with it.

To me this is a universal principle of art. Saying as much as possible with a minimum of means."-John Huston, Director
These videos are superb. Just wanted to tell Ron I've been studying the anatomy Imagine FX issue you were featured in and it's been incredibly helpful. Thanks for all the hard work and inspiration sir. Hope to see more videos and work from you!
Thanks for the videos, can you make one on mixing oil color?
thank you for the support, and yes, Hyskoa, a color mixing video is in order. Have a few for the head painting class at TAD next semester.
Hey Ron I'm a big fan of your teaching methods and I just want to thank you for these videos and for being good enough to pass on your knowledge for free. I think your blog sounds great and I will be a frequent visitor as I have many drawing problems and questions. Two problems I have at the moment is working out how the forms of the face look in differing perspectives and the proportions. Especially in extreme perspective when looking down or up.
In my own effort to support you I recently brought your Drawing the Male head DVD and it's been a big help to me. Also put in an order for ImagineFX as I saw you were in the anatomy issue.....I did say I was a fan! Love the humour you put in. Many thanks.
