These tutorials presented by Drew Spence are designed to assist you with scene composition and postwork . If you’re having trouble for your renders in polishing your character-based scenes, Drew offers valuable postwork tools and tips that can assist you with that that process.

Your Art isn’t Yours podcast

Drew Spence from The Dynamic Universe speaks on the artist reaction to any sort of critical response and why letting go of your art is the way forward to dealing with negative feedback. It’s not about a ‘tough attitude’; it’s about understanding the relationship between the artist and the audience. When you LET GO, you grab a hold of the higher meaning behind art.
