Recently, I've received numerous messages expressing how much you guys like the Swatches videos I've made and wondering if I'm going to make more. Firstly, I really appreciate you taking the time to let me know that you find it informative or inspirational. It's been eating me that I haven't made more in ages. Several months back I had a brief hospital stay (I'm fine now), but it threw off my scheduling and landed me with a modest bill. That was the first domino falling and I've been playing catch up ever since but things are starting to turn now. I've started to refocus my time for the coming year which should allow for more videos.
The Portfolio Review videos are relatively simple to make (as the don't need an elaborate lesson plan) while addressing issues many of us face daily. So, I'm thinking to make it a regular episode type as well as the Making Magic where I step viewers through the creation of commercial projects (including Magic: The Gathering images). Aside from those two ongoing topics other subjects could include Q&A's, art techniques, specific subjects, the business side, etc.
Your questions and portfolio submissions are very welcome, feel free to comment below or on the Swatches YouTube pages.
On a side note, I have been plugging away on the Character Design workbook which I'd estimate is 60% complete. Stay tuned for more info on that.
