Several people have asked, so I've been playing around with the idea of offering a mentorship program. This idea is still in the very early stages of development, so I don't have any concrete information regarding price or length, but you can read more about it on my blog. Right now I'm just trying to gauge interest and get ideas from potential students as to what they would like to see. Thanks!

There are two groups I work with :iconimprovement-club: and :iconthe-classroom:, we are starting to work on a mentorship program. You're welcome to get involved if you like. :) We need more teachers for :iconthe-classroom:.

Definitely interested man!

I guess there is interest Daarken. I would like to throw my name in the mix man. A formal education is not practical in my case, but I would love to hone my skill under a developed eye, such as yours. Keep me in the loop?

P.S. Add me as a friend?

Thanks man,
Damion Rarig

I would love this man. I'm looking for the staircase, meaning you have started a long journey to get to your level; I much want to create amazing pieces in my head like you do. I would give anything to be trained right..

Sound great Daarken. Am a fan of your work for years now and would love to see more of your process. I watched all your tutorials and specially the siege helped me out a lot so yeah mentorship sounds great

I'd like to see the process. Everything from your ideas and why you stop on a design all the way to the litly tricks and tips you use in PS. But this is a plot for a for the mentorship...I honestly dont know how this would work. If you teach some guys over a period of time then simply corecting their mistakes would be enough

It would be great!

I would probably pay for a mentor/personal tutor and send email pantings to be dicussed and critiqued. A personal tutor would be something I would definatley look at and I think it's likely to help my art. currently I watch FZD on youtube and buy imagine FX magazine print copy to help my education but personal tutors could balance this well.

Since I watch you here on DA i'll be waiting to hear updates soon hopefully.

Good luck!!

It's a cool idea. Mentorships are a great way to give back to the community and build meaningful relationships across the globe.

Intriguing. This may have the potential to make me start drawing again. (Haven't done much of anything in years.) I definitely need more details first of course.

Bro that would be a dream come true! To get help from one of my favorite fantasy artists would be awesome! Count me in!

I find this very interesting and would probably be pretty up to actually being one of your students.

I would probably be willing to empty my bank account for this. I'm starting to get serious about my art, and I think having an experienced eye guiding my journey (if you'll forgive the cliche') would be invaluable.

I would be interested, but specialise in sculpting more than anything so wouldn't really know how the program would reflect on me.

The mentorship sounds great, specially for the people that doesn't live in the USA like me. Streaming videos would be cool, but prerecorded demos is an excellent option if you have comunication with your students by chat or email. Personally, I think it's very usefull when the teacher works with an assignments but only if the teacher analizes the student's work and help him. If the assignment is forgotten in the back, then there is no way to say if the people is learning.
I'm interested, of course depending of how much would it cost, but definitely I'm interested. The topic I'll love to take is coloring.
See ya! :)
