Watch this high energy, valuable packed hour with the one and only Claudia Riveros, who answers as many questions for us as she can.

From what took her from Karate Champion to creative goddess to the tools she uses for her art and how she decides between digital and traditional.

Packed full of fun and valuable insights and knowledge this is a session you will want to watch! And of course – you really don’t want to miss the seagull impression :)

Questions answered by Claudia in this session:

  • DC Jem: I’m going to kick off the questions (pun intended) because I would love to know – as a prior Karate Champion, what made you move away from sport into the world of art, and are there any traits learnt in your previous profession that help in the creative world?
  • Victoria Margaret: Any sneak peeks at the new course you’re working on? With so much inspiration out there, what do you look for in a reference image to really inspire you to pick that specific image over others? What is your favorite subject to draw? Can we see your seagull impression?? 😂
  • Sheila Mullis: What additional ‘tools’ do you use in addition to the iPad and Apple Pencil?, e.g. pencil grips, screen protectors, Sketchboard, tilting desk, etc. Which do you think really help/work?
  • Unni Davidsen: Is it too impractical to try and save money by – instead of having adobe all apps – you have a period of illustrator to immerse in it and learn it (let’s say a few months) and then you try out photoshop to see what you like best? And then, when you know the programs better, you alternate periods on each, depending on what kind of project you’re working on. Is it then possible to save files elsewhere in between? Like on dropbox? Evidently I’m just learning to make art digitally. Art is just a hobby, so far. So I think it can be expensive having everything, when I’m just concentrating on one program at a time. What do you have to think about when you take the files with you, and want to be able to resubscribe later and work on them again? I am an alumni from Bonnie Christine’s Surface Pattern Immersion course, but am still struggling to learn and be comfortable with the program because I apparently learn tech slowly. Also, I love Procreate and would like to learn Photoshop to be able to have more natural textures than you get from illustrator. But sometimes I would want to work in vector too. Would be fun to know both. Love from Oslo, Norway ❤️ I would like to explore light and shadow by testing different techniques. (try everything and keep the ones you like!). I often find cross hatching to appear “artificial” compared to more blended shading. How do you make it look nice?
  • Amy Chin: Is it possible for someone (especially someone like me who is late in life) to get really good at art without a formal education? Is it important to learn different styles before honing in on one style (or typical subject matter) in order to get “good”, whatever that means? I guess really the question is: What is your advice for getting “good” at art?
  • Selrahcnewrad: I signed up for your Drawing masterclass and want to do it in Procreate. What suggestions do you have for overcoming the differences between traditional drawing and drawing in Procreate. My first sketch was awful, but I can draw reasonably well (not, by far, professional quality though) on paper.
