PRINTS FAQ

If you're interested in buying a print from me, they typically run about $30~50 depending on the particular image/size, then somewhere around $5~$9 shipping depending on your location. They're printed with archival Canon ink from a PRO9000 MK.II on up to 13x19" cut sheet EPSON premium glossy or enhanced matte paper. They ship to you in acid-neutral protective sleeves in a tough tube! Each print is signed and numbered with its respective edition.

Any art featured on my website, www.orianart.com, can be made into a print.

Any questions, price inquiries, etc, please direct them all to matt@plasticshards.com with "PRINT" somewhere in the subject! Thanks!


Hey everyone! I listened to some of your input, and my SkillShare class "Creating Illustrations with Dimension" is posted and ready for early enrollments! I'm still working on the classes video content right now, and it's slated for a mid-January release. Click below to check it out!

This class is going to be more than just a regular tutorial on perspective. Aside from going over everything you'd need to know about perspective, It's also going to have quite a few recorded demonstrations of drawing scenes and commentary about best practices and considerations in different situations. I'm making the videos as high quality as I can, complete even with well designed animated explanations! I've also grown quite a bit as an artist over the last 5 years since I wrote that brief tutorial here in my gallery. There's a lot I couldn't include to begin with due to size limitations, and I have so much more to say now! These video lessons will be a fantastic way for me to share as much knowledge as I can on the subject.

Get to the class by clicking on the cover image above or by clicking here: skl.sh/18nySQD 
EXCLUSIVE TO MY FOLLOWERS: Until the class goes live, you can enroll for $5 off if you use the coupon code: 3DMY2D when you enroll! Have at it! [Share this around, there's 1000 coupons available and the offer expires 1/17/2014!]

For those who aren't acquainted with SkillShare, you can think of it as a bit like other skill-building sites like Lynda or DigitalTutors except you buy individual classes instead of paying an ongoing subscription fee. It's also unique in that the students of the class are assigned a project to work on and complete and submit it to the class for teacher (me) and peer review / commentary / critique! The more people who enroll in the class, the more robust the classroom will be. (However unlike what SkillShare writes in its FAQ about teachers not needing to participate, I will provide whatever helpful commentary I can to those who enroll and submit their project.) Your project can be updated rather "Behance style," and I encouraged you to show WIP shots along the way so we can see your process.

I really hope that you guys will be enjoying what I make here. I don't believe 150-200 page books are a good place to learn perspective (it's frankly incredibly boring to read about so so dryly,) and I don't think you need to go to an art school either. So I feel this is a good solution that would be worth your time and investment! If you like my work, like my informative teaching style, and would like to not only learn and engage in some new stuff but also support me and what I do, sign up and let's make some cool illustrations! YEYEAH!

If you have any questions, feel free to ask note me, comment, or email me at foxorian@gmail.com!

Edit: By the way, a "Kickstarter" style "What's this all about?" video will be posted on the the page soon! Maybe in a week or so. GET READY, HERE COMES MY FACE.

There will also be project incentives once the class goes live! Best submitted project(s) will some free prints of my work, video chat about your work, (or even an in-person meeting if you're local for the same review!) Can't wait to see what you guys will create next month.

Freaking love your art, and your tutorials are really helpful! Finally know how to get a tileset going! :DDD

Here's a Maia.
Like I said, couldn't find my tablet (probably in my room somewhere, idk)
So I used my trackpad instead. :iconscootalooshrugplz:

I found your little tutorial about what to do with wacom when the driver is not found error thingy...lol. And since I don't have a tumblr I just visited you here, to tell you, that I am very thankful that you shared that process. I've been having that trouble for some time now and I always just uninstall the driver and re-install it, but your tutorial showed a very precise way of fixing it, so thank you so much! :glomp: You're a savior! :XD:
