I have been a member of this forum for almost a year now. I am always trying to learn from other artists. I am interested in knowing about I love to draw and I am always trying to get better. I have been drawing since I was a kid. I took some classes in high school, but other than that, I have been pretty much trying to teach myself. I have recently tried to get back serious about drawing in the last few years, mostly drawing portraits. I have bought a few books including Mike's book Drawing from Line to Life. It is an excellent book, but I still have trouble comprehending some things. I am always trying to improve and become a better artist overall, and I think could really help me improve my foundation and develop my technical skills. I have been having doubts though, because I have read people say on other sites, that you can't really learn to draw from online classes. There is only so much you can learn and it would be a waste of money. I disagree, and think it could be a huge help. I think I can learn and improve a lot. I am interested in Mike's and a few other classes on I was wondering has anybody had any experience with the site and is it worth the money for the courses.

I audited Mike's intermediate course at a while ago and I recently took the advanced course. I think it's a very good way to learn. The only thing that would be better in my opinion would be taking a live workshop with Mike, although there are a lot of advantages to taking the course online. One is that not only can Mike give you personalized attention that he wouldn't be able to give you in a workshop situation, you can also learn a lot from Mike's critiques of other students' work. If you're willing to do the work and participate fully, I can guarantee you that you'll come out of it 8 weeks later as a much stronger and more confident artist.
