My digital stamps are ideal for Copic marker coloring. That means the objects are full of wide open spaces to blend. There are no distracting texture marks!

I want your coloring to shine through, not my drawing skills.

That's what the "Vanilla" in Vanilla Arts Co. is all about. I give you the vanilla base, you add the hot fudge, the sprinkles, the whipped cream, the Copic ink, and the Christmas cheer.

FREE- Try a Marker Painting Workshop! Art based Copic coloring class.

 

Last week was pretty busy

I launched a new website with 2 new classes, and I opened the Digital Stamp Shop here at VanillaArts.com.

So forgive me if I crow about my FREE class today.

Free class?

Free as in zero dollars?

Yep. A totally free class.

I know it's hard to commit to an online instructor. Classes are not cheap and unless you've attended a live class with that instructor before, you have no idea if this person can teach at all.

I could be some total internet creep with absolutely no skills.

 

That's why I created an introductory level Workshop class

It's proof that I'm not a creep.

But it also sets your mind at ease about how I teach.

Because I'll be the first one to stand right up and say, not all instructors are right for you.

Some instructors are great with beginner students, they can coach anyone through the beginnings of anything. But once you progress beyond the beginner stage, they have nothing new to offer you.

And some instructors will talk right over your head. They're teaching way up at level nine when you're having a level three kind of day.

"More Than Luck" is my audition for you.

See if we match up in personality, style, and teaching level. And if we don't, you haven't invested any money, so it's no big deal.

Take a FREE Marker Painting Workshop. Challenge Level Copic coloring with Amy Shulke of VanillaArts.com

What's included in the Free Workshop?

It's a great sampling of things you'll find in a regular workshop.

Only bite sized, so I don't scare you off.

  • 1 hour of fully narrated class video broken down into 3 easy-to-manage parts. Includes technique breakdowns, full explanations, and real-time coloring processes

  • digital stamp in several user-friendly formats

  • classroom website access with discussion boards and great instructor Q&A access

  • thorough supply list including consumer product information

  • full color sample, shade sample, photo reference samples

  • exclusive Vanilla Arts Co. color map

  • class glossary for clarity

 

Join the class!

I can't wait to color with you.

Free Digi Club- "Go Fish!" a Copic Friendly (and FREE) Digital Stamp

 

Tropical Fun!

"Go Fish" is my new Copic coloring image, free to subscribers of my Free Digi Club from now until August 1st.

Free Digi Club?

Yes, subscribers receive 1 free and challenging image that's perfect for Copic or colored pencil coloring.

Perfect?

Well, at least as close as I can get to it. Here's the deal, there are a ton of stamp companies out there and the internet is full of digi stamp offerings. But very few stamp images are drawn especially for Copic coloring!

Let's face it, most stamps are sold in the uncolored version and it's not until you fork over money and start to color that you realize the stamp is too small, too congested, or full of lines that get in the way and detract from your marker technique.

Not me. I draw my stamp images minimally. That allows you plenty of space to color and get creative!

Heck, that's why my company is named "Vanilla", because YOU add the flavor ON TOP of what I draw or teach or give away for free each month.

 
 

Online Class Update:

All Patreon classes have been suspended while I move my class system to a website designed for online classes.

I'm still plugging away at the preparatory work, the new class site is up and running, now I'm working on the payment and auto-responder processes. I think I'm about 3 weeks out from launch but as I said before, I'm not killing myself to get it ready by a specific date.

Students who paid for lessons at Patreon will receive coupons for access to the lessons which were active during their time at Patreon (you paid for a lesson, you won't have to pay again). Anyone who joined Patreon after May 1 hasn't paid for lessons, therefore will not receive grandfathered status at the new site.

Class fees will go up at the new site which will better reflect both their value plus the new services AND forever access. Sorry folks, the Patreon price structure wasn't meant to last.

And by the way, all classes will be sold individually. No more monthly membership structure. You buy only the classes that appeal to you, purchase them when you have time to watch. No more struggling to keep up with the pace of new releases!!!

Until the workshops launch, have fun coloring "Go Fish!"

And hey, send me a .jpg photo of your project! I love seeing what people do with my images!!!

Happy coloring!
