    Greyscale mode and horizontal/vertical flipping of images has been added this morning as a feature to the drawing tools for members with a full subscription. :D


    More filtering tools just went into beta - they are currently only available in the Figure Study tool, and only to people who have a doodler or full subscription. I'm pretty excited about this one -- it's been a long while in the making.



    Just crossed timezones off the list!

    * Timezone account setting, so all timestamps and day starts will look right to individual members.


    Crossed a number of things off the list this morning, including...

    * Pay for photo bundles with Paypal

    * Add last message date/time to inbox

    * Reminders to review your practice goal if you haven't changed it for four weeks or longer


    Crossed another item off the list:

    * Pay for subscriptions with Paypal - Added in the form of purchasing gift codes


    Raised the image upload size from 2MB to 5MB :)


    'Thanks for raising the upload size and please ...please never do the social authentaition take is if or when the hackers get to other sites and bring them down...will the domino fall and make this wonderfull site break please for my two cents worth ..never, never do a social anything links and such for that reason...please and keep up the great work as I for one love it here and it really, really, really inpires an old cartoonist like me to be here.


    You're welcome, and thanks for that feedback :) I'm so glad you find the site useful!

    I hope I can put your mind at ease though: Social authentication would not put our site at risk of going down if one of the other sites was hacked. The main thing that would happen is that people who used to sign in using only Facebook (or whatever) would not be able to sign in that way anymore, and would have to resort to having a site-specific username and password here.


    Just crossed push notifications off the list :)


    Have not been on here for now checking in only once every aprox. 6 mo's....oh well...some of you admin's have true repect for us humor cartoonists, and will make a section for all of us that like the silly humorus of the human antomy is what some of us are saying....please stop taking anatomy so serious is what alot of us are saying...plllleeesssseee and we thank you.


    Dear Kim,

    Just wanted to know, how’s the 1.5 hour class mode going? We’re just dying to see it!!

    Dear Kim,

    First I want to thank you greatly for this website. I wanted to pick up drawing again after many years, but didn't know how to start. This site has really reactivated my drawing. It's really amazing to have all the different timings for the poses.

    Personally my focus is not so much on people, so I was wondering if you ever thought about adding a botanical section (plants, flowers, minirals, etc). They might be a bit more static, but there are many wonderful shapes, textures and shadows in nature that could be great for practicing.

    Also a small comment, in the bugs and incects section there are some photo's of such bad quality (dark or unsharp) that it is almost impossible to draw them.

    Great big thanks!



    Hi Suzanne,

    I have definitely thought about adding still lifes, and have slowly been acquiring equipment that could be used in shooting them -- I don't think it would be all botanical, but certainly that could be part of it. I think it would probably need to be a little different structure than the figure study section, and I don't have a clear vision of what that might be yet.


    I was very impressed with the lighting a poses of the nude shots, but then very dissapointed with the lack of helpful lighting with the head shots. Do you think you will be trying to improve the head shot lighting?

    thank you. very impressed with your site and the way it is organized.
