“This has been the most incredible course. I never thought I could ever produce a realistic portrait like this and this showed me that I could. I could not be more happy with how it turned out…”

David, I have been student for about 20 years, and I must say you are the best teacher I've ever met!

I’ve been struggling for some time to seriously start painting digitally. Paintable gave me the tools and approaches to finally jumping the border from traditional or half-digital to a complete digital workflow.

Frequently Asked Questions

One Week Portrait is a free digital painting course, designed to help you paint your best EVER portrait over the course of just one week!

It’s our way of giving back to the community, by hosting a huge 5-day online masterclass on digital painting, completely free of charge. It includes over 90 minutes of lessons, and a series of live critiques and Q&A/paint-over sessions. We’ve had over 51,000 students take part in the past, and it’s always been a blast for everyone involved!

You can follow along in any software! We’ll be using Adobe Photoshop (which we highly recommend), but you can follow along in Procreate, Krita, Clip Studio, Corel Painter, or any other software of your choice!

Yes, we highly recommend you use a tablet to follow along with this course!

Any tablet will do – whether that’s a Wacom, Huion, Apple iPad Pro, Microsoft, or any other make. You don’t need a professional tablet to paint professional artwork!

Nope – all lessons will be available online, so you can follow along from the comfort of your own home (or studio, if you’re fortunate enough to have one)!

It’s completely free 🙂

If you like the class, all we ask is that:

  1. You’d be so kind as to leave me some feedback or a testimonial
  2. You share it with your friends! The more the merrier 🙌

Day 1 opens up on Monday August 16 2021.

You can register now tho, which gets you immediate access to the masterclass. I’ve got some “before we get started” info in there for you now, to help you get prepped. Plus there are some awesome bonuses unlocked. 

The first lesson (sketching) will open on Day 1. You’ll get an email with what to do.
