FCF Art Academy Watch-Along: Art Baltazar & Franco, FRIDAY, OCT 25th @ 9:30AM PST/12:30PM EST

Greetings, FCFers!

We’re happy to announce that Fan Creation Friday will be expanding to feature watch-alongs featuring DC Universe’s Art Academy videos! Are you a seasoned artist wanting to join in on the fun of a group workshop, or are you a new artist interested in getting into drawing some of your favorite DC Characters? No matter your experience level, all are welcome!

Our first WAL will feature Art Baltazar & Franco, and those wanting to take part need only show up at what you’ve come to know as our weekly Fan Creation Friday gathering time of 9:30AM PST/12:30PM EST. :heart: Looking forward to seeing your guys there!

Hey all, making the 30 minute announcement for our FCF watch-along! :slight_smile:

For a little insight into today’s process, while today’s WAL has a pretty early start time of 9:30am/12:30am PST, we wanted to take the chance to give you a taste of the sort of videos that’ll be featured, and will be leaving notes from the video here in the comment section for you to pull from at your leisure over the next week, so no worries for unable to attend. For those who do, the video we’re using is linked above, so you can open it in another tab or use a separate device to watch it, which’ll give you the ability to leave comments. More details to come!

15 minutes left to go!
And continuing on, as you move through the creative process, we encourage you to share your insights and other details, sharing your finished work, too! Our videos will vary in topic, character, and level of difficulty each time, so there’ll be something for everyone. Today’s video, for instance, will cover numerous characters, so you can pick your favorite or try your hand at all of them! :slight_smile:

2 minutes left! :slight_smile:

The 1 minute countdown begins!

Annnd, time to start NOW! :heart:

Also starting with Super Pets at 10:20, from Krypto to the Joker Fish, B’dg and Comet, the Super-Horse, the Green Lantern Squirrel (lol the Joker Fish kills me). :laughing:

Hey there, @MissInkBlot1! Sorry, I’m late to the party - been dealing with Penguin and how to clear out some stray coppers from the Iceberg Lounge.

Alright, guys! That’s a small taste of the type of content that we have in store in the coming weeks - we hope you enjoy getting an up close and personal look over the shoulders of DC greats as they take you through their artistic process, go into their backgrounds a bit, and come out the other end with a brand new work of art! :slight_smile:

We can’t wait to see what the pieces look like with your own personal styles included! If you have any questions about anything, please don’t hesitate to reach out! :heart:
