A big thanks to everyone who fav's my stuff. I can't respond to them all, but every single one is very much appreciated!


Greetings People!

I've been working hard on creating an 8 week long Environment Design class for some time now, and I am happy to say that I am all ready to go.
This course is entirely FREE! Yup you heard me. FREE.

The nearest equivalent I can see on the market is the CGMA environment design courses that are being offered at $US700 per student! Having taken those classes I know they are pretty good, but I can also tell you that I am aiming at offering much more tailored individualised critique and more interactivity than CGMA gives you.
And yeah...again...FREE! There is no catch. I really love teaching, I really love helping people, and I am trialing out this content before it might become a paid course, so I'm very excited to be able to offer this first class for nothing. This may be the only opportunity to get this much personalised learning out of an online resource for so little.


I am hosting the class on the Crimson Daggers forum here:…
Check out the first post in this thread for more information on what is involved.  You will need to sign up at the Daggers forum to participate, but you can still view the thread and participate in the livestreams and learn from them if you don't wish to sign up.

Weekly Demos, Assignments and tutorial videos

Check out and subscribe to my Youtube Channel here to get new demos and tutorial videos as they are…  

Weekly group livestream critique sessions

These will be hosted generally for the next 8 Sundays (New Zealand Standard Time, UTC +12):…

Unfortunately, the demand was so high that I have had to close registrations for access to all the demos and to get personal critiques. I have almost 50 people signed up!
However don't despair, you will still be able to view any of the public demos I release, do the assignments, ask me questions, interact and learn with all the other students in the class, and generally have a grand old time. I will also be talking about my freelance experiences and the industry in general.

Come by and say hello anytime!

It has been a long long time since I wrote a journal!

I haven't been posting too much on dA due to work and other responsibilities of late, but I thought to break up the trickle I'd post a link to a new short video that I made that shows two methods that I have used in my own work to quickly and easily setup one, two and three point perspective grids. These methods are good to use for in digital program you like. 

Nothing particularly mindblowing here, but I hope you guys find it useful and informative.
If you like it, subscribe to my Youtube channel because I am planning on doing lots of free videos to come. Many will be focused especially on environment design and on practical methods to improve your own work and workflow.

Hello from Wellington! Wow, your work is really impressive. I read your post "Art school vs. self-teaching" and I wanted to say it is so very helpful. I'm in my second year of self-directed learning and it sure is hard but highly rewarding. I need to check out those workshops run by White Cloud. All the best :)

Hello fellow Wellingtonian! Thank you so much, I hope it is useful. Self teaching is definitely the hardest way to do it, but keep persevering, listen to your own gut and just keep having fun, and I have no doubt you will succeed. Paul doesn't run many workshops anymore unfortunately, but definitely keep an eye out for them, they are invaluable. 
Feel free to hit me up if you have any questions. I'm always happy to help if I can.
